Your face is like an open book
You know me as a Dane in Spain - but my real name is Dorte Holm Jensen.
I have been writing poetry in my mother tongue, which is Danish, since I was 12 years old. I published a collection of poems years back...but now finally - I am coming out of the "Poetry-Closet" in English.
The silent stream of words
radiating from your facial expression
fills all the surfaces
in my inner universe
wallpapering it with wild delight
caresses all my senses
But an almost imperceptible hesitation
in your silence
that you don’t dare
to say out loud
what we both already know
Words are so easily transformed
which have to be redeemed
and you're already
