"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Your Name

door handle

I’m in love with the light in you
with your name engraved on the handle
that opens the door of my heart

I’m parting the ocean of the past
white at the left, black at the right
here I am in between smiling at you.

Entangled souls mating in an old door frame
having lost the skeleton keys
for their door that opens enigmas.

sailing the desert

my love lost in another world, the desert sends you endless waves of sand
in the cold night when you sail from shore to shore asking
mermaids and bards and lonely women and shamans and the fata morgana
for the absolute beauty and the golden wool

seeds of whispers get born on my silent lips as I try to get you out of the corners
of this universe, me undressed of day dreaming, you covered in dreams
that cannot get real because you don’t set them free while you linger too long
in the chaotic nightmare hammered in screaming ancient walls

the springs of my soul search for the sky in your never seen eyes
so that the day when you’ll find your way back to me
you won’t step on the blaze of our burning hearts
while you’ll break my life in two with a kiss

Good Morning World

Round Universe


white is your soul
black is my heart
we come from far away
from an old dream.

in this round universe you reach out your hand
towards me and touch my very soul
and we watch all these feelings swirling
in between us.

you, white river,
me, black torrent,
melting quietly
in a sea of emotions

let the night swallow
the last traces of my smile
fading slowly as I dare not to speak anymore
let the darkness devour
the last thoughts, so that my spirit can rest
let me die for today. turn off the light
so I can get back to life when I see you again

As I ponder in the middle of my night
On the weight of this world
I would spread myself into pieces
To become one with the universe
Hoping to find there all my answers.

I would make myself a field of dandelions
Scattered by the winds towards all skylines…

Words I have said will never return to me
Countless downs and feathers
That I let float in the air from the tip of the highest mountain…

Sadness I have felt will never turn into happiness
If I would make myself tears
And lose myself in the vast ocean…

What would it serve me to be unique
If I lost the meaning of life?
We are all one, interconnected
Nothing belongs to us
We are each an atom of eternity.

i can’t find my
it flows
from the hourglass
on the bottom of the
deep blue sea
instead of
the time
we wish we had

the numb
and the distant
belonging to a life
of endless crawl

we shall
in between
dark and emptiness
just to
wake up from
this dream

one day


blood floods the lonely
heart, the blue sea of silence
and the eye closes
on distant sunsets of soul
dreaming of one day of light

Nightwish – Dead Boy’s Poem

“Born from silence, silence full of it
A perfect concert my best friend
So much to live for, so much to die for
If only my heart had a home…”
