I slept in the train on the day I left home

I slept on the couch at her place all alone

We took silly pictures with unselfish smiles;

embraced for too long and then muttered “Good Night”

A lot to confess, even more to leave out;

there are lots of silence in doubt

I’m too scared to be with

a studied psychologist

For fear of transparency

I’m too scared to be.

When she went down under to study abroad

we barely bowed out, but that wasn’t her fault.

A talk in the kitchen, we later dragged out

in bits and in pieces when her mum left the house.

An autograph left in her autograph book

for all the belongings I took.

And we all confess sometimes

for the soothing of the talk

I’m afraid of the reply

but to be honest, aren’t we all?


from The Great Pacific Northwest, released April 25, 2015

Ben Hermanski Ibbenbüren, Germany

Ben likes to hold on to moments and give them away on stage. To you.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
