I was a bard, a soldier, a tramp.
And I longed for home. Thou set me on fire.
Now I am Thy candle.
there is time. cloudy. present. sunny. past. my. now. flaming. time. is.
eyes raised. to the heaven. from the earth. upwards. wordlessly. again. anew. eyes. raised.
there is a heart. beating. pump. red. cold. behind the arteries. unyielding. red-hot. broken. heart. is.
a thought grows. in strength. uncalled for. in silence. in storm. in contradictions. in loneliness. amidst people. out of loneliness. a thought. grows.
mute are my steps entering your house. your house where nothing is left. your house, devastated. mutely sparkles hit the flint of the floor of your house when the iron soles of my boots touch it. my steps are mute in your house.
where shall i raise my eyes when i do not see the walls of your house anymore. the walls of your house that are so high. the walls of your house so dew-covered at daybreak. where shall i raise my eyes when i see the walls of your house no more.
the roof of your house blue as the skies. the very sky is the roof of your house. of your house the beams and the lathings of which i see in my memories. where shall my eyes rest upon when your house has the sky for its roof.
the heart of your house penetrated by a ray of the sun. as a lance piercing the mists of daybreak a sunray landing in the heart of your house. in the columns of dust my heart recognises the thing taking place in the beginning of time. a cross of sunrays in the heart of your house as a witness to its place. the heart of your house pierced by a sunray.
your house. maybe is. must be. for your glory. in memory. built. ruined. noticed. living. house. of yours.
me walker. in the road. tired. winged. falling. drenched in rain. in your house. i meet. you. o. the walker. me.
to burn. like a flame. from all the heart. again. in the eyes. responding to you. in silence. burn.
to burn. o god how it hurts.
o God how It Hurts.
O GOD HOW IT HURTS
but you would know it anyway.
