Go forth and back
Till your arms split right open,
Can’t decipher what to pretend
Or how to pretend i am lost in a world
Full of sins, so condemned,
I vanish into thin evaporation
Of old memories in a lost world.
Small and smouldering I give my life
To a new dawn which I beg
For mercy with my damned soul
And pity for all my crimes.
Sky, help me,
Victims, tear me apart,
Stars, shine on me,
Darkness, take that which is lost!
For I am nothing but a soul within a soul
One among others,
Likeminded bound to me,
I want to guide their footsteps into light,
But where is the lamp I need?
Cold, chilly snow rise from the ground,
Washing my stained face and bellows:
‘Hear ye, my darling prince,
I am the King of Ice!
I live in your heart where your love has died,
There can be no light in winter-tide!’
Shivering like a leaf
I descended the stairs
And found what I sought for so many years:
A gateway out of a shell.
Love for unnatural things,
Powers of earth and man,
I gave in to the wonders of the world,
And savoured life with my two-metre wingspan.
