An idea that made the soul stir Words transformed into deeds Deeds into ink, ink into memory The embers became silent A glorious day. I curse you, Sun, for I know You'll only rise, as long as you fall down again. That night, I dreamt. I laid down among the twigs A passing stream appeared Pleased, I left it engulf me Yet, it receded into drought As if it were never there. A cold breeze awakens me. The candle-light flickers violently. Do I hold fate in my hands? And if I do, is it like a bent wooden toy That breaks, thrusting at a vision Too great for its briefness I have begun to feel vibrancy and warmth withdraw from my hands. It is as if my vessel, not excluding the organs responsible for what is naively called the soul, Is being dried out of life, naturally and completely peacefully. Yet, I am still young.
Here I walk on my own again, no shelter in the autumn rain, rusty leaves paint the world in marble gold, while the sun stares down so cold Silent tombs wait outside, illuminated by a shivering light through the bleak window of my soul, emptiness enshrouds this light in woe The naked trees are the audience, winds whisper lullabies of evanescence, myriads of shadows around so old and with every fallen leaf, a long lost soul
There is an invisible thread that binds everything, thin and fragile. I must have cut it, because I hear the song of the leaves and the wind But I cannot feel them. Though, if it was called Spirit, God, or self-deceptive hope Then I have no regrets. Screams echo within the forest. Dort, auf einer dunklen Lichtung, tötet Apollo Dionysus. Doch während er weiter rein, kalt und steril bleibt, antworten die Sterne nicht mehr. (English: There, in a dark clearing, Apollo kills Dionysus. Yet, while he remains pure, cold and sterile, The stars no longer answer.) And all Light is now made from Ghosts Distant, obsolete, fading pages Calling me to Join. I run towards the river of my dream All that is, was and will be. It is gushing with Blood, true and vengeful Pulling me, towards an inward spiral Leading into the Heart of the Earth. Yet, here I shall forever Hold.
