Spring Smell


Strange coldness caresses smiles,

new shadows are born every day,

nightmares speak in silence,

sighs sharpen their wings

of newly conceived toughs,

who long dreamed about their first flight-

powerless to taste the madness of their transformation,

they float somewhere above the past and the future

as they flow through the dark tunnel of the present,

in our suffering hearts the sorrow is spared

whose new-borns immediately float through the bloodstream,

the bridges of closeness are being torn down, instead of being strengthened,

in the corners of the room, as if under punishment,

the love and the faith shake their heads -

out of shame or sadness!?

Even the sun is ashamed of us.

Cold must!

I’m dying – I’m whispering,

but I can’t die

because the spring blossoms in my soul.



Clean Soul


You can breathe, in the middle,

between the past and the future,

hesitate for a long time

for the step that will save you from silence,

which travels through your thoughts

and then start over.

You can scream the silenced words,

in a moment,

to break the lump

which nestled somewhere above the chest.

And whilst memories awaken emotions

you can turn over

the words from the songs,

you can do whatever is right in your heart

and not cloud your soul.

Only the soul,

let It stay clean.




Immortal Soul


Pour the intoxicating wine

who dripping out of soul -

an inexhaustible source it's,

steal from the feelings

who trembling on the face,

tear part by part of the heart

each torn cell

new leaves behind.

Don't you know?

Exhausted but strong in the moment

I am light after all

even in darkness shines so bright,

I am life

who rises even after death,

a fertile seed in a barren land,


pour, steal and tear from this soul

to be resurrected to immortality.
