Empty Streets

Empty streets, loneliness applies

above the way only illuminated by lanterns.

They have hidden in their houses,

quietly whisper about the neighbours.

No stone remains on the other.

They are drunk and shout

at the top of the voice.

The smell of the conspiracy lies

in the air polluted by the laughter.

Your Silence

No Words, no Signs,

I know, it´s the Silence

around and behind you

in the Darkness

of your Soul.

 

I never asked you about

your relationship with this woman.

I hope she makes you happy –

happier than me.

 

If you want to go, so

go along your way.

Take your silent soul with you on

your way to your new Flame.

Nobody

Long, long ago, you turned

my head and my heart  into flames.

You’ve lost your game with me.

Be proud of you, we do not talk about it.

Quiet, very quiet in my heart I still love you.

My heart is broken and  I have forgiven you,

but I have not forgotten that

You were never there when I needed you.

 

Rocky, steep mountain trails,

I see nothing  but Stones.

Stones – which you put in my way.

The same as years ago – I went the same

way, crossed Meadows and Fields, there were no Stones.

That’s the truth.

My World was fine, as long as I did not want

to see your Thoughts.
