Abschied/Goodbyes


Abschied2

Goodbyes (2003)

Goodbyes
taste like the sea
on a grey day
while waves swell
and roar in your ears
and the wind whips
stranded words
away skyward
to drown them in the
toneless
weeping
twilight

Abschied (2005)

Abschied
schmeckt wie das Meer
an einem trüben Tag
während die Wellen
rollen und rauschen
in deinen Ohren
und der Wind
gestrandete Worte
deinen Lippen entreißt,
sie himmelwärts treibt,
um sie in der
stumm
schluchzenden
Dämmerung
zu ertränken.
