writing shorts stories for my english teacher at school and lyrics for music has been the early entry, later I tried to cross the border to english poetry. here are some chosen poems for my international friends. I love you all where ever you are right now ... 

 

 

 

DEATH OF A DOG

 

Dark night broken city gas lights

Mind dog is travelling the wet stones

Bark and bite, run and hide

Nobody ever throws me a bone

You will pay for love tonight

She cuts the lights of the motor home

I should have known it but in spite

Still tried to run from being ‘lone


She took me in her hands to spill me

And said the words she knew would kill me

Run dog run!

She said: run dog run!

And I ran ran ran

 

Nightmare of an open mike night

Got one thought in thousand clones

But couldn’t get a word out right

Like truth was her forbidden zone

I’m on my way to nothing right

Like an autopilot on testosterone

She told me I’m to leave tonight

To harvest what my fear has grown


She locked me in her legs to chill me

And said the words she knew would kill me

Run dog run!

She said: run dog run!

And I tried to be a good dog

And I ran ran ran

 

 

SWEETWATERTEARS

 

Have I been waiting just for this

God shoots that poison arrow

She cuts a metal curtain with

A view, a dance of eyebrows

    She’s not like anyone I know

 

Hearts of gold the price to pay

Seduce me into danger

She calls me and then walks away

She plays the perfect stranger

 

Dreams wild wet got washed away

By anything like tears

But not so salty

 

She’s not like anyone I know

A beauty in her sadness

She smiles her silent cries that show

She’s far beyond just madness

 

And breathless she demands my love

Come, boy, fulfil my hunger

But finally she cuts in half -

The darling and the hunter

 

Dreams wild wet got washed away

By anything like tears

But not so salty

She sundowns far beyond the sea

In anything like blood

But not so salty

 


 

GEOMETRIC

 

You design lines squares and circles

All around my heart

Then you find these geometric structures
Tearing me apart

And you explain the philosophies of love
But that is not enough

   You just can’t calculate the chaos

 

In your eyes life must be in order

All must be in place

No desire to ever cross the borders

You’re locked up in a safe (in a way)

You’re like a train running down your tracks

You never step aside
You’re never looking back

You keep explaining your philosophies of love
But that is not enough
    You just can’t calculate the chaos

 

You design lines squares and circles

Like a cage of steel

Can’t you see these geometric structures
Disable us to feel

You may explain the philosophies of love
But that still is not enough

    You just can’t calculate the chaos

    while you don’t need to ...

 

 

 

THE GOLDEN ROOM

 

Night’s falling from that grace

You piled these fading things

I’m crawling through that place

I’m searching for your fingerprints

Your smells are everywhere

The pillow keeps your breath

Your shadows linger in the air

Your echoes make me deaf

 

I’m still living in that golden room

Still shining from the light you gave me

You left me lonely in this warm cocoon

I remember every day you tried to save me

 

The nights are long these days

The hurting slows me down

While memories come as a blaze

My queen had stole the crown

And all the songs I wrote

Will burn my heart to death

Each word was meant a loving note

And still there’s so much left

 

I’m still living in that golden room

Still shining from the light you gave me

You left me buried in this warm cocoon

Is that the way you try to save me?

 

I’m not leaving this place

I’ve asked your god if I could stay

I know you won’t return these days

But I can keep my dreams alive this way

 

I’m still living in that golden room …

 

 

 

SOME VELVET WIND


Lay soft beside the river
Dive into the elephant grass
Can you feel the gentle shiver
A cool breeze from the past

And when I look up to the sky

... see the stars rush by ...

There must be like one hundred million
Reasons to fly

I gonna dive into your velvet wind
And I’m not dreaming


I can’t think of anything better

... but better you don’t think ...

I watch my hands grow feathers
And make my arms be wings
And as I’m loosing weight
I feel me gaining height
I gonna challenge fate
And touch the sky tonight

I gonna dive into your velvet wind
And I’m not dreaming


Well as you know man is not made to fly
We’re supposed to be a victim of gravity and time
For from ground we come and we must become ground
And he who ever rises will be shattered down


But now as I fly I care for nothing at all
I watch the world go by and everything’s so small
The mass of men look like ants in a machine
And every great idea is just another little dream

As I watch all this from the moon

... will you come home soon ...

I will escape from my humanimal cocoon

I gonna be a part of all and everything ...
I feel like drowning in your velvet wind ...
And I’m not dreaming

 

 

 

LATE CHECK-OUT

 

Nein, I don’t mind
To waste some time
If I can feel it coming in the air tonight
What to find
In your eyes
To put the beautiest of moments in a rhyme
And I don’t mind
If love makes blind
As long as I have got the feeling it’s alright
Just one night
Side by side
Until we late check-out and leave the cat behind ...

Nein, I don’t mind ...
I won’t mind ...

 

Nein, I don’t mind
That time by time
We all take flight in stupid little lies
It’s just a try
To get by
With all of these confusions deep inside
Like tonight
I won’t mind
To lay down in your arms and make you fly
Just one night
Side by side
Until we late check-out and leave this love behind ...

Nein, I don’t mind ...
I won’t mind ...

Just one night
Side by side
Until we late check-out and give a kiss-goodbye ...

Until we late check-out and leave ourselves behind ...

Nein, I don’t mind ...
Nein nein nein, I won’t mind ...
