and it hurts

and it hurts

not to hold

your hand anymore

and it pains

to revolt

against Love for sure

so we burn, lies unfold

and we burst, truth untold

– no encore.

Dying Stars

Drowning in the most bloody of a wine

losing faith in our kind is my crime

wondering about the sense of passing time

pondering on the perfect but forgotten rhyme


Howling at the beauty of a full moon

dying starts illuminate the skies

I’m crawling underneath the light so bright

am seeking for oblivion of endless times 


Oh, how I wish to be one of the falling sparks



crucified unchristianly

the moment I want to be



forever cast into stone

is when I hold you inside my arms

the torment consuming me

I feel inside


whenever you turn, are gone

is when I long to be inside your arms

      but embracing your warmth

      is like chasing a ghost

      I can’t break from your charms

      as you torment and haunt me

      whenever you vanish

      once I manage to spot you

      whyever you banish

      me once I reach out – don’t flee!

the instant I want to be



forever lost and alone

is when you told me 

that I did you harm


Sleep Eternal

I wish to sleep

the one I never slept

dreamless and deep

for once and forever


no need to weep

over my dead body

my doleful soul

has never been alive


I wish to keep

the ones I tried to love

within my heart

always and forever


I wish to sleep


as my mind rots





disappear with the dust

Let’s fall into ashes

And disappear with the dust

I’m crumbling now just as

My searching soul – left long ago

Looking for sense – and finding woe

Put a stake through my heart

And redeem me from myself

And thee will be freed

From the pains of to be

Living with a dying self

And a senseless corpse like me
