Street Art, Wall Painting

In the 70s and 80s, a lot of cities were having the spot on un-used buildings, what were occupied by people who needed homes.

Some of those ‚occupations‘  ended successfully, other remarkable.
Remarkable successfull was the action to save a street in Düsseldorf.

The Kiefern Straße was saved from project developers, and became an open monument for (street) art and more.

We visited on a very cold day. Our cameras were getting wet a bit, but they survived.

Afterwards we were taking a little pre-taste of the upcoming christmas markets.

Love is love

I love my life
When life loves me
I love you
When you love me

I live my life
When you love your life
And when you can’t
I will love you even more

You are beautiful
Lie is beautiful, because of you
And That is why
I give my life to you

And the sun will shine
In our brightest day
In our darkest night
Hold me, tight

We will grow older
You will have my shoulder
And I give you, my most wonderful part
Because I love you, I give you my heart

Nightshade
Created by Petra Vos

 

When the night falls
After a sunny day
When the brighness transforms in invisible grey
With the entrance of the cold

When darkness is around
When you can hear the shadows speak
When there is a spot of light to squeek

when you lost everything around
Because she has found
When your eyes fear the night
Because she stole your light

When the nightshades shine in
And there is no other choice
As obeying her sin

When all there is, is gone,
And nothing seems to be so nice
As forever
Closing your eyes

When the night comes
With a cloudless night
And you can’t see the stars
or the moon
 
When the cold comes
Touching until in the bones
And you can feel
The invisible eyes
Stinging in your head
 
When the night is filled with vibrations
Unexpected, scary sounds tickling your nerves
And the scent of fire and herbs
Guides you on external voyages
 
When the signs of the old times
Start to speak again
And you are touched by their immortal power
Then you can be sure
 
You are in the Withching Hour

No one saw you
Preparing for your fight
No one saw you
Roaming through the night

No one saw you
When you screameed your anger and hate
No one saw you
No one was intrested in your sound

Your mind was poisoned
By the law
Your plan was perfect
And no one saw it coming

Then you stepped into the light
And we saw you
We were blinded by your light
A staccatto, and we could not hide

Your outfit, so wonderful, so colourful
Your hair, such a thrill
You are amazing
Too beautiful to kill

And between the stunning firework
Of beauty and sound
Your eyes looked around
Blind, and ready
Shooting the thrill
Ready to kill

And everyone saw you
Thougth you were great
Until they realized
That it was too late

Fatal Attraction
By Petra Vos

Fatal attraction

Have I told you today
How wonderful you look
have I told you today
How you curves made me hook

Have I told you
About your sexy hot legs
Can you imagine
What I need more to relax

Your eyes drive me crazy
I am longing for your slow hand
And who knows, maybe
I fullfill your dreams, in the end

You don’t blush
While I am flattering you
I wonder how lush
You are, when I do

You make me wild, there is no deny
You awake my fantasy and all my sins
I want you now, please make me cry
At the moment I send my bullet in

sinful touch, by Petra Vos

Sinful touch

There you are
So close, so far
You look so fragile,
Protecting yourself
You have so much to hide

Your eyes dream your thoughts away
So close and so far away
I look to you
My fingers can touch you
But you are so far away

I look into your eyes
And feel your trears burning in mine
And I wonder why

What can I do
To reach you again
How do you feel
When are you
Happy again

I give you time
I give you all I have
And I wait
Until you are ready
to return again

Amalie and Amalie

No one was aware
But you definitely were there
Your body still like a statue
With boiling blood, ready for the prey
Patiently wating, night and day

With every breath you take
And your eyes, spying around
For the victim what soon might be found

I looked at you
Are you real
Or just my fantasy

I came closer
And before I could smell your skin
Your spear spiked me
And I
Had not even time, to wonder why

Spying
While your eyes are bursting
From the biting, poisoned smoke
That slowly fills your prisonroom

Waiting
For your moment to come

THere is no escape
Our of this nightmare
Because it is real
The heat that you feel

Steaming smoke
Takes your breath away
You not seem to notice it
Focussed at the only way out

There will be no one
Who unlocks your prison cell
What else can you do
Than waiting for that moment
On what your spirit leaves your body
When there is no pain anymore

A last cough is what you hear
There is no way out
And you do not fear

Pleated Skirt Outfit for G8F by Amaranth & PixelTizzyFit
Creation by Petra Vos

All I want, under the christmas tree
Is a moment, to be free
So please, forget about the angel
And don’t mention about the sheep

All I want this christmas, to kiss you
And burn our candles inside
When the door finally shuts down
You will be brighten our crown,
on christmas night

When the wind blows
I will feel your kisses
The cold will be dark and blue
How nice I could turn your ice
Let the glowing light, being the glue

No lametta, there will be
Only a tiny christmas tree
We won’t be cold
With eachother to hold

Let christmass kiss
And lit the light
Let it be warm again
After the chilly night

Render by Petra Vos
Words by me (HaFri)

I was walking blind
THere was nothing I could find

I was running from A to B
Looking for what I could not see

I had to be in time
I could not drop the line
Running faster, but I was too late
Hurrying more, without finding the gate

I went on, but did not know
Where my feet were letting me go
I could not stop it
I could not drop it
I had the will to carry on
with the show

Then, all out of the blue
All the sudden, there was you
When I saw you, in a flash
I knew what to do, in a dash
I ran behind you, but you were so fast
I don’t know how many hours it last

Then you stuopped
And while you took my breath away
You said, well hun, you should not run
Because you can get everything, if you are willing to stay

I opened my eyes, was bathing in sweat
You were gone
But your words I will never forget

HaFri Poetry October 2017

 

The change of seasons
For us, from sommer to fall
The warm days are over, after all
We turn back to the light
Embrace the night
 
The change of seasons
For others from winter to spring
Birds start to sing
You turn back to the light
The days will be bright
 
The change of seasons
A magical feeling, for you and me
With hope and faith, for many reasons
We step in the light
If we want to see
1- 10- 2017

I am looking to you
And I call your name
It always makes me smile

I see the moves you make
With every breath you take
And when your words find my ear
I know what you want me to hear

I love it when you laughter
I hear the brightness in your eyes
And I carefully look after
What is behind your disguise

I read the words you write
And even if I fail to understand them right
I read what you are hiding away
I hear what you are trying not to say

I do not want to treat you
I do not need to cheat you
I want to know who you really are
I always love you, close and far

There you go, you walk away
There is not much more to say
Only your footprints can be found
I take you in my heart, you will be forever around

I am looking through you
and I know your name
It will always make me smile

Sometimes I wonder
Like many of you
What is wrong with this world
Where it all will bring us to

I wonder how someone can hate
Someone that he does not know
I wonder why some people take the right
To kill others, just for their show

They say, money makes the world goes around
But I think it makes the world stand still
How can you live with a gun in your hand
Realizing it is made to kill

Let us finally clear up the lie
Weapons makes our world not more safe at all
Let us stop to make our children cry
We are not here to decide about life, hear my call

Too many tears did fled by lead
Too many innocent people, die day after day
Don’t play the judge of life, because you are not that
Live and understand eachother, let our children play

I stop with looking for the answer
Because there is no question why, my friend
Let’s just live in peace and harmony
And let the answer, be blown in the wind

Find me a place
Where I can hide for the rain
Find me a home
Where the roof dims the light

Find me a world
Where I dare to look up, again
Find me a life
Where the only fear is the night

Give me your fear
I will give you hope
We will be near
No matter what, we will cope

Give my your tear
I give you a smile, in return
The sky will be clear
The clouds shall fade for the sun

Give me the night
Take me by the hand
Let’s grab, together, to the light
Let’s smile at our love,
It will never end

04 10 – 2017

I was talking to the planet
Where I love to live on
Maybe you think it is weird
But it is what makes me strong

She told me abut her worries
And it were not that happy stories
About polution, ignorance and war
I had to agree, humans have gone too far

They forget to respect
They prefer to neglect
They tell themselves they are perfect
But in real they are far away from that

I listened to her story
In what was, of course, nothing new
I felt sad and immense sorry
And then, all the sudden I knew

What, if I make my world matter
What, if I should try a ittle bit better
For who is around me, for who I can touch
For who I can reach, for who I love so much

I again should start to sing
And smile about rain, and everything
I can’t solve the problems of the entire earth
But a better world is so much worht

I give, what I should like to get
A smile, a hug, something to laugh at
A fear, a tear, to wipe away
Because all I want, is that I can say

Nothing is prefect, but you and I
Can be happy, when we both give it a try

Sitting in the chilly sun
Summer is definitely gone
People are walking by
Enjoying the sunlight in the sky

No one has, for me, a name
And they think of me the same
Like the birds, who wait
Patiently

I only notice the man
When he stops and opens his bag
And so do the birds
They know what will come

The man throws the bread
The birds pick, quarrel and fight
A smile appears at the face of the man
Amazing, how a mood can change

Gulls and birds fly up
In the hope to get the crumbs first
They scream and yell
Nothing human is strange, for them

The man and his friends
And the illusion ends
When he shakes the empty bag
A last flight

Before the man disappears in the crowd
Anonymous, like before
The birds wait
Hungry
And I wonder

Who will be their next friend for a minute

Slash as a she Copyright and art by Xans

Music is my first love
And it will be my last
So many memories to songs
To people, events, such a blast

What should I be when the music was not there
One thing is sure, I definitely was not here
I might have been knocking on heavens door
Many years before

Life is music, music is life
More of that jazz, a millionaire waltz, the prime jive
I have heard them all before
We want more.. we want more

When I hear the guitar, gently wheeps
I grips me… until it sleeps
Never, never break the spell
This could be heaven, or this could be hell

And in the masters chaimber
The genious compose the song
With a whole lotta rosie
How can I go on

I sing along with Freddie
I dream the slashy strngs
Yes, music is my first love
In all kinds of everything

Name me the number of the beast
Running up the hill
Music, my bohemian Blasphemy
the sound,  a view to a kll

I live my life
When you love your life
And when you can’t
I will love you even more

You are beautiful
Lie is beautiful, because of you
And That is why
I give my life to you

And the sun will shine
In our brightest day
In our darkest night
Hold me, tight

We will grow older
You will have my shoulder
And I give you, my most wonderful part
Because I love you, I give you my heart

If I had the money
I should buy you a house
Where the birds wishtle
Where the air is full of sea

If I had the money
I should buy you a better ploace
for you and for me

If I had the money
I should make your wishes come true
If I had the money
I should know how to do

I don’t have the money
I can’t buy you that diamond ring
But even when I can’t give you gold
I can hold

I can hold you tight
Until the end of the night
I can walk with you, along the water
I can love you, yesterday, today, tomorrow and later

I can make you smile
Without opening a bank account
And that smile of you
Is makiing my world goes around

I might not have money
But my love is true
You never are lonely
If you don’t want to

I have nothing to write
And that’s so wrong
The paper remains white
And I try so strong
 
Words do not come out of my brain
And with my fingers, it is the same
I sit here, staring how the time flies away
All there is, is emptiness, and it feels not okay
 
I should write, and let the thoughts fall
I should wonder, being amazed, that all
I should be protesting, one hand in the air
But instead, I am sitting here
 
One arm under my head
In the other my pen
Telling myself that I can
But who believes that?
 
My eyes are empty, what to do
My thoughts drift away, to you
Many things to say
The silence sway
 
The decission that I make
Today, I take a break
No poetry, no words from me
No stress, no chellenge, just a
silent lucidity

Sunlight
Reflects amazing
Through the leaving leaves
And both are not aware
Of the beauty they are giving

The beautiful brightness of fall
Harmonizes
It should not be this beautiful
If one part was missing

When I am the leave
I warm up with your sunlight
Get refreshed by the rain
And warmed up, by you, again

One day,
When the leaves get thinner
I will let your light through
To who wants to see it
And in the mean time
All I want to do
Is reflecting your wonderful light
Back to you

What are we expecting
To who are we reflecting
What is the light that reach you
Who told the words that teach you
 
Where comes the sun from
After a rainy day
When is the darkness faded away
Why do I cry and feel relieved
When did I count the blessings I achieved
 
Let me open up your windows
Let the light and fresh air come in
Washing away our worries and sorries
Let go.. anywhere the wind blows
