Autumn EveningAutumn Evening1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
On the earth night and darkness,
Dreary the lea and barren the wood.
On high starry light sparkling
Like a blessed heaven's day.
Do you lament for the falling leaves?
Let the foliage to the storm of the night!
Earth may lie dark,
On high a light is kindled!
Look only to the starry meads:
Always new star groups
Your amazed eye will see,
Golden light and marvellous.
Astonished you stand – light stars
Also in your pure soul,
In the near, in the far
You perceive them joyfully.
Do you mourn for the falling leaves?
Let the foliage to the storm of the night!
Earth may lie dark;
Enough light is kindled!

*** Spuren im Sand ***
Eines Nachts hatte ich einen Traum:
Ich ging am Meer entlang mit meinem Herrn.
Vor dem dunklen Nachthimmel
erstrahlten, Streiflichtern gleich,
Bilder aus meinem Leben.
Und jedes Mal sah ich zwei Fußspuren im Sand,
meine eigene und die meines Herrn.
Als das letzte Bild an meinen Augen
vorüber gezogen war, blickte ich zurück.
Ich erschrak, als ich entdeckte,
dass an vielen Stellen meines Lebensweges
nur eine Spur zu sehen war.
Und das waren gerade die schwersten
Zeiten meines Lebens.
Besorgt fragte ich den Herrn:
„Herr, als ich anfing, dir nachzufolgen,
da hast du mir versprochen,
auf allen Wegen bei mir zu sein.
Aber jetzt entdecke ich,
dass in den schwersten Zeiten meines Lebens
nur eine Spur im Sand zu sehen ist.
Warum hast du mich allein gelassen,
als ich dich am meisten brauchte?"
Da antwortete er: „Mein liebes Kind,
ich liebe dich und werde dich nie allein lassen,
erst recht nicht in Nöten und Schwierigkeiten. Dort, wo du nur eine Spur

What have you done?
You stepped into my life,
left your footsteps,
shared your light
and then stole away the sun.
What did you do?
You tickled my heart,
left it pounding,
caused it to burn
and then you made it miss you.
What is on your mind?
You piqued my curiosity,
left me waiting,
kept me in suspense
and then made me cry.
What have you done?
You broke the seal of scars,
left me behind confused,
made me bleed
and then you were suddenly gone.

My nails tapping the beauty
Notes flinging in the air.
Blood leaking on the masterpiece.
Play until my hands bleed
And my heart aches;
Only to receive the comfort
In your warmth.
Your warm fingers bandaging
My broken hands. Your soft voice
Making me promise
To treasure my blood.
But I do not listen.
My hands are just a tool
To lay eyes on you again.
I continue the song and wait.
But today you do not come.
My song waves long into the night,
The tune tearful. I bite my lip
At the wave of pain. A pain you
A bleeding heart,
You left behind.

Clear and pure through the northern sky
Your deliverance sent me down with the rain
Life falls asleep
Can't hold you anymore in the nearing winter
Picture me in the sky
Picture me once more
November falls now
Carve me in the fallen leaves
Catch me reaching for the lost summer
With my innocence buried in the frozen ground

Make my heart beat faster.
O dear my love, can't you see?
Breathing without you is my disaster.
O be my guardian, my anchor, my destiny,
Shine down on me your raving beauty!
O save me from my darkness, my yearning!
Fill your heart with your slave, hear my hopeless begging!
Each part of me belongs to you,
If you only could be mine for one minute!
Everything I am I owe you;
O my dear, for you my heart I forfeit!
O speak to me, love!
Mildness of your voice pleases my heart.
I could drown in each of your words
Until death tears us apart.
O hold me closer!
Begging for it is such a sweet torment,
Like to be here within your touch
At least for a moment.

Sleepless in the middle of the dark
Idle eyes chilling like ice
And split open heart crying red
You poisoned me
Took my purity and poisoned with yourself
Bound to the torment
No way out from this nightmare
Your hands inflict the sores
Your words hit me like stones
No, I won't do it tonight
No, I can't bear your odious sight
Hear me cry in silence
Next time will be no more
Here, this night, another wounds
No, I don't want to feel anymore
You tore me apart
Devoured my pride and never brought it back

Silently screaming in agony I'm dying to find my peace...
Lost in the night again
I still remember what you've done to me.
You killed my soul and let me die before your eyes,
I can't defend myself from all your lies.
I shouldn't let you possess me completely.
Now I don't know how can I live when you've gone so far away?...
Why am I lost again?
And how can I find my peace?
I've dreamt about you beside me.
Tell me, my love, was it too much for you?
And I'm still dying when I come to realise
That none of my dreams will ever come true.
I shouldn't lead myself straight to failure and defeat,
Yet I can't help myself but feel the pain I have inside...
Depths of my soul,
When I'm still all alone.
Could you help me brighten the darkness and let it go?
And I'm silently screaming in agony,
Dying to find my peace.
This wound in my heart...
I'll never throw it away, I know
'Cause I'm not strong enough
To kill the light inside my mind.

Repeating one another
On the dark sky;
They sing to me
I'm not the only one
And if you ever loved me before,
Shine the blessing moonlight on me
From this starless sky.
Hear the storm
Ingrowing in anger
At the edge of me;
If there's anything more to say
Spread your blissful wind
Around my heart.
And if I ever hear you crying,
I'll drive the wind and stand by your side
At the edge of you.
When you are here -
Touch the sky
Crying over our heads
In the mournful peace;
Rain falls down
Tells the story of those
Who can reach the end.
And if they ever were in this place,
Let them tell you where the end sleeps
If the morning comes.
When you are here
I wish you were here forever.

Just a few words to describe my work
My appearance is shrouded
From a distance, you’d never see me
For I am blended in with those around me
You won’t know I’m there until it’s too late
For I am, but a blade in the crowd

You can see for yourself with the way
She sheds her skin
So that you can see inside of her
Where her secrets lie.
Just as much as the homeless man on the street
Rummaging through others belongings
Do not discard her.
Listen as her lips move and make sound.
They speak of elegant treasures lining the seashore.
She will tell you that even the seagulls have purpose.
Her lips move slowly.
They speak of impossible beginnings.
She will tell you the tale of two lovers
Who have never met before.
She spins words like falling stars
Fast and with magnitude.
She is a magician pulling her heart out
Of a hat
And will give it to you if you just ask.
She knows not of her beauty.
It is insignificant to her.
She is humble.
Already today she has thought of countless others
And never herself.
She wishes that she could dance to starlight
And worship the moon.
But she doesnt have the dance within her.
She dwells in the darkness.
Winter's EmbraceThere was a time…Winter's Embrace11 months ago in Emotional More Like This
When in winter, I would stand at my window, in the dark, at the early hours of the next day, and watch it snow. There’d be dark music playing in the background. Heavy lyrics that probably shouldn’t make much sense to me yet, but they did.
As I’d stand there, I’d feel a strong, pulling longing that made me want to walk out of my house, around to the backyard, and lay down in it. Let the snow cover me. Let it caress me. I was always longing to have someone hold me…the snow could hold me. I could sink down in it and let it hold me tight in its death grip. I could finally get the satisfaction of being wrapped up in something.
I wanted more than anything to lay in it until it was so cold, it burned. Cuddle into it until the burn burned so badly, I went numb. Wait and wait and wait until I was frozen. Until I could snap my frozen limbs off and still feel nothing but cold.
There was a time when I was an empty shell with a tormented mind.
HogwashI tear through the ribcage of unanswered prayersHogwash1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Peace be with you, and also with you
Chanted alters that offer up fallacies
I do not believe in smiles
They are carnivore teeth ripping through lies
Flesh eating flesh
I got twisted somewhere
My bones are weekly sorrows
They no longer hold me up
I am scattered dust and dog hair
I am an hour long minute
Take me to your God
The one of bloody battles
I have a fight to win with him through wisdom
My scars are silk eating moths
I am the fabric of a lost destination
Find me on an empty sheet of blue lined paper
Those are the veins in which I write
That is where I will be
Wait for me
I have some truth for you
I hope I am not too late
To change fate
Destiny is a fucked up reality
Do not hold your breath
Swallow up your mood altering medicine
Become a drone
Walk with fists closed and ready
Do this or die
Again and again
A death that is by cinder blocks and religion
It is a better way to be
Feel the meteorites collected in your kidney

It is a slow demise
Under the wilted skies
Gravity is not forthcoming
I fall until I cannot fall any more
I am suspended
In universal blunders
There are still wonders
That are hidden in catastrophes
And the almighty seas
Spoken like broken words
That never fail to amuse
I lose myself in the imperfections around me
The rose that bows her head
Laughter that is choked back
It does lack
The breath to expound
I am bound
By feathered wishes and gratitude
It is lewd
The way that the world works
There are some perks
The way that you say my name
Life is never a game
But there are still losers
You already know that love is a gamble
I have preamble
And knowledge is on my side
It is a fun ride
Take me with you
We will make a flesh stew
Our bodies slowly simmering
With the heat that leaves us burning
Until all that is left are intermingled bones
Lips to lips
Hips to hips
We stumble onto this thing called love
And it is in the imp

About the Ray of light,
You travel with me to the abyss.
The cesspool of humanity, where dark souls reside,
You are there with your effervescence.
You never mince words.
They are birds with petal soft beaks,
You pillow beneath me.
You are there opening the door
Making sure there are no ghosts to follow.

I am coated.
Solid and stuck,
Twenty is finding
my boots are too heavy,
struggling and strained,
to light my own candle,
dreamless and dark,
And twenty remembers
all former transgressions,
bitter and broken
Eighteen was first love
and Nineteen had lost it,
before the next year sang in.
Twenty was somber,
until the October began.
upon all of her follies;
Learning and stumbling,
And Twenty is healing,
acknowledged the broken.
Twenty is loved,
though she sometimes forgets it
And Twenty is nothing
if not grateful and hopeful.
