Now and then I'm scared, when I seem to forget how sounds become
words or even sentences ...
No, I don't speak anymore and what could I say, since no-one is there
and there is nothing to say ...
So, I prefer to lie in darkest silence alone ... listening to the lack of light, or sound,
or someone to talk to, for something to share ...- but there is no hope and no-one is there.
No, no, no ...- not one living soul and there is nothing (left) to say, in darkness I lie all alone
by myself, sleeping most of the time to endure the pain.
I am not breathing a word, I haven't spoken for weeks and yet the mistress inside me is (secretly)
straining her ears.
But there is no-one, and it seems to me at times that with every passing hour another
word is leaving my mind ...
I am the mistress of loneliness, my court is deserted but I do not care.
The presence of people is ugly and cold and something I
can neither watch nor bear.
So, I prefer to lie in darkness silence alone, listening to the lack of
light, or sound, or someone to talk to, for something to share ...
- but there is no hope and no-one is there.
No, I don't speak anymore and what should I say,
since no- one is there and there is nothing to say ?
All is oppressive, alles ist schwer, there is no-one and no-one is there.
