Blushing Storm

Fearless in my own skin, I struck I swept in, caught you off-guard My sounds showered your mind, sent shivers through your spine We rumbled together that night drenched in the moment absorbed by each other I was a lot for you, covering the sky with my presence you encouraged it We calmed down theContinue reading “Blushing Storm”

a Sweltering Summer

I came naked out of the shower when I noticed; the first rays of summer-sun shone onto my bed. As if they were a blanket, I crawled underneath them and let their gentle warmth caress my body. This body which had yearned for their touch throughout a winter’s eternity. As she spread her energy allContinue reading “a Sweltering Summer”

I found my smile in Paris

The vibrant swaying of the bass-strings, they lure me in until I’m thrown out and caught by the whimsical beating of the drums. Rhythmic, never harmful. Dumbfounded, I smile.  I watch the drummer as I imitate his moves with my arms. In response, he raises an eyebrow in amused confusion. I’m swept up by theContinue reading “I found my smile in Paris”

Content Overload

We’re thoughts circling the insides of a beehive Colliding, connecting, introspecting We think to achieve, to thrive and believe All has been said, I think, as I lay down my pen No thought is unique, it’s all on repeat My words are shadows of scribbled notes, of poems, novels, of scripts from before But, whatContinue reading “Content Overload”

See and make seen

I didn’t know you for long. A day after your death I backtracked how long we actually had known each other for. I counted two months, an insight which lead to instant disappointment because in this world we put the length of any relationship on a piedestal. I pushed that annoying inkling of disappointment awayContinue reading “See and make seen”

Learning how to be content

I pull my hair in what’s a combination of stress and frenzy. It’s dry and frazzled. I’ve been expecting it to fall off this winter. A winter that has been too long and cold. I’ve also been expecting myself to run away several times but I never have. Instead I’ve tucked the notion of otherContinue reading “Learning how to be content”

Insights with great impact, drawn from tiny moments

The four of us sat in an Airbnb bed, freshly arrived into an Amsterdam in February shroud, sipping Cava and red wine. A constellation of friends that has not been obvious but rather worked on. Connected through our eagerness to connect, out of curiosity for one another. Sharing memories of current and former boyfriends throughContinue reading “Insights with great impact, drawn from tiny moments”

Intelligent scum

What if people a hundred years from now will look back at us in the” rich” world and ask: Why didn’t you stop this from happening?

The elusive concept of being one’s own boss

Suddenly the limbo-state in which I’ve found myself to be in for a while, cleared up and showed me what it was actually about. I’ve felt torn between running my own business and waiting for someone else to command me to do something. I’ve wanted to start my own company since I was 16 (I’mContinue reading “The elusive concept of being one’s own boss”

Peeling layers of thought

I’ve been writing all day. I went to Haymarket, looked around in the beautiful milieu and had a coffee, or two actually, very important. The act of going to a place to write, is special. You designate time to write. I don’t do that very often, but when I do, I cherish every second. IContinue reading “Peeling layers of thought”

LEVEL UP: Adulthood

I sleep a lot these days. It’s as if my body and mind are slowly thawing, waking up from this winter’s hibernation. Spring is stalling and it’s frustrating to see the buds do everything in their power to come through but instead they get pushed back by frosty nights. I am traveling to Italy nextContinue reading “LEVEL UP: Adulthood”

Fall. In. Love. Again. and. Again

In. Love. Again. and. Again”

Little Miss Fuck-Up

Yesterday I went out bowling and got drunk instead of studying. Today my wrist is hurting from the bowling balls, guess that’s the price you have to pay when you’re the winner 😉 I try to let go of control, an attempt to not live up to the “Little Miss Perfect” – ideal. I don’tContinue reading “Little Miss Fuck-Up”

Free-writing my way to freedom

I’m in a room on Gotland in a beautiful summer house. There are five new, for me, people sleeping in the other rooms. They’re my team-mates on this shortfilm-shoot. Yesterday I rode for four hours straight and I felt empowered and free sitting on the horse Irina. My co-actress and I roamed the fields, cantered,Continue reading “Free-writing my way to freedom”

Stockholm Charades

Summer flies to foreign countries the spirits of autumn settle in People, kissed by a healing wind waiting for the harsh winter to begin as the sun enters hibernation Swedes work on their winter accusations but in their minds live warm memories of Summer fragments that will keep them together

Human-waste

A man on the subway Sunken cheeks, skinny bones, White tufts of hair on his head Blue, coming on grey, eyes Carved roads on his forehead – marks from all the times he’s reacted to something Laughinkles next to his eyes and I see I see his stories playing before his eyes a life livedContinue reading “Human-waste”

Leaking Love

Saturday Morning Thoughtlings

His warm body slides down next to mine, despite the early hour, I am too awake for my own good. I steal kisses even though I know he would have prefered me not noticing his arrival, because he doesn’t want to disturb me.
