Poem: Dark Cry

Updated on May 24, 2014


Going through some old boxes over the weekend I happened to stumble upon a few poems from my teenage years, dark, twisted, difficult years...

As soon as I set my eyes on the title of this poem, it all came back... It was a feverish feel, a dreamlike state, because it was actually part dream, part whatever was going on through my mind at that time...

So, here it goes, straight back from 96.


Dreams far away... nightmares in the night...

Sweat covers my body

Rain falls around me

Darkness in my head... a faint cry...

His hands on me

My lips on his neck

More, more...

A stranger is in the room

My eyes are strongly closed

I fight, I try...


The Darkness...

Somebody sits on the bed

It has no body

It's bad

Thin air refreshes my hot body

And the light doesn't come

Red dreams... Dark dreams...


An Holy Priest watches from the altar

As he touches my burning body


The bells toll madly

and the coffin closes slowly on me

I say nothing

I do nothing

I watch silent from above

He comes to me

The voices silent once more

The cries die

The tree with no leaves...

Black... White... Gray...

Everything is Gray...

I live in the Darkness

Bless me

I don't believe...


The candles burn away...

Do you exist?

The cross burns

I burn

He comes again...

I don't want you!

Do I want him?

The red blood drips...

The heart in my hand is shaked

And I ask it:

What do you know?

The house falls on me

I chant in german

He gives me a sermon

And takes me...

I think I'm crazy!
