Timo Schmitz: “Now that you’ve left” (2013)

Away from you, my heart it hurts,
I still love you, the way just parts,
My lonely longing, what do they feel, our hearts?

From the first moment when I realized,
And somehow wet, wet were my eyes,
So often, the rain, my pain just cries.

Never, I could believe, you’d leave so fast,
So many memories, all the time, they will last,
This unbelievable storm so vast.

My future couldn’t have been so bright if I hadn’t knew you,
But now my heart is so lonely, what did you do?
Now we’re seperated, but I believe, you’ll think of me too.

Timo Schmitz: “Pure Love” (2013)

Everyone searches it, feeling impressed,
Pure and so true, that hearts they feel blessed,
And still that lust oft times gets stronger,
This fake feelings you can’t stand any longer.

Love from heart, that never goes away,
Real, soft pure love, you think forever to stay,
So many people believed it and got disappointed,
And those two parts of the hearts have never been jointed.

So think of it, pure love, does it exist?
Or is our apetite just stronger, our heart just a cist?
These feelings so pure, they only exist in those dramas,
Love can be as giant as a clift, with those lovely drabas.

Timo Schmitz: “From my mind to my heart” (2013)

A warm day, so comfortable,
A restless heart, so adorable,
And all what a heart will be able,
But now I’m sitting lonely next to that table.

She has stolen my heart, but she has already forgotten,
She’s fragile inside, and knows it but …,
She is too weak to admit her inside,
And all that feelings, more and more on that tide,
Her face so motionless but she can never hide,
July is crashing down, no more bright.

Love, you never let me go, I have to admit,
Heart, I know your pain, your feelings just split,
Feelings, I don’t doubt you, I know what you want to say,
She’s the wrong one for me, let her go her way.

Love, I know you only want the good for me,
Heart, I know you want to keep me alive,
Feelings, I know you don’t want to betray,
But she can’t be mine in any way.

She has stolen my heart, but she has already forgotten,
So I want her to give me my heart back and I wish her good luck,
But she’s too weak to admit what she really thinks,
And all the feelings that the lovely summer brings,
July is crashing down, next to me.

Mind, I don’t mind you fancy her,
Heart, I don’t mind if you follow my mind,
But now you are in a dispute,
My mind tells that she’s not good, but my heart says she’s cute.

Mind, don’t trigger my heart’s desire,
Heart, please realize that my mind is right,
And I can be without her, what a joyful delight.

She has stolen my heart, but she has already forgotten,
She’s fragile inside, but knows how to hide,
And thus her horizon can’t be bright,
But I gave her so many chances, that’s right,
But is it really good to fight?
I lost that love, no matter how hard I try,
July, you will never make me cry.
July, you are the summer that keeps me strong,
And forget all the things that you made wrong.
I’ll have a brilliant summer, all along.

Timo Schmitz: “Nothing but you” (2013)

Your cheeks are so red,
Your skin so hot,
But still you fake your feeling.

So dark, so motionless,
So scary – your eyes,
But still you fake your feeling.

So bright your smile,
So nice to see it,
But still you fake your feeling.

Timo Schmitz: “Levoča” (2013)

Old but fashioned,
Friendly and warm,
A place that you and me adore.

A town well known by history,
Slovakia the beautiful mother of thee,
Where everyone in lifetime once should have been.

So far from here, and still unseen,
The wonderful landscape appears in my dream,
When I see you I forget that I sleep.

Once in autumn, you sang to me “come here”,
That was the time when I wanted to come near,
I want to dream again that you are never so far,
My beautiful Levoča.

For better and for worse

For better AND for worse? … Sounds as if someone mixed up the idiom that people use to say when they marry, which actually is called “For Better OR For Worse”. To me, as a German, this sounds in some way strange that something shall turn better OR worse. It is like a black and white scenary. Life can be better, or life can be worse. Loving someone can be better, or loving someone can be worse. In German we have the frequent idiom “In guten wie in schlechten Zeiten” which literally means “In good times and in bad times likewise”. Therefore I decided to break the English idiom. I don’t want to say that something should be better or worse. I want to remember that a relationship isn’t always just better or worse, but both. Sometimes we have happy moments and we feel so happy for our relationship. And sometimes we have bad moments, we have quarrels. We can’t always have sunshine. We also have to accept the rain. Therefore we should accept good and bad times alike. FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE!

In July 2013, I published my book “For better and for worse – A collection of poems” (epubli GmbH, Berlin 2013). The book contains a collection of poems, short stories and thoughts covering a writing period of one year, showing happy and romantic moments, but mostly desperate love. Why desperate love? I think, sometimes when someone really needs someone – no one shows up. We listen everywhere that the world is full of sorrow – but when someone needs us, we just disappear. People don’t care. Not all the people – but everyone might have had this experience before. Therefore, in certain ways, my book also considers human balance and indirectly deals with ideas and social critics about human relationships and treatment. Let’s all care more about the people we are dear with, and “give sunshine” to people who are just in need. Maybe, if one day, we are sad and lonely – who will support us? We will be glad for everyone who is our real true friend. Therefore, for the archievment and development of human kindness, let us be caring in advance without expecting to receive anything back.

Hey everyone!

Thank you for visiting my blog! Let me introduce you. My name is Timo Schmitz. I was born in 1993 in a little town near Trier, Germany. I like reading books – and I write books myself. I like writing about everything that interests me. I like poetry! I often combine poetry and philospohy, because I think sometimes a complex idea can be summarized in a small sentence. And it’s up to you what’s the meaning of this little sentence that tells so many different stories to different people. I also like writing stories not only for entertainment, but also to give ideas, … thoughts moving the people, give an impulse to think of something in a deeper level. I am very interested in philosophy and psychology. But my biggest love are languages. I learn anything I can! Different countries and cultures are my devotion. You want to know more? Then don’t forget to look around in my blog!

Best regards,

Timo Schmitz
