The River of Doom

Flows the river of doom
Blood and tears in one black stream 
Cold rigidity takes over my flesh 
The frozen hands of death already stretches out for it 
I wish to get up and escape
But my eyelids are already too heavy
My speechless soul alone screams in despair 
Summoning your name as a magic formula
Though I know it will not save me 
I know that you will not hear me...

Quick fingertips of the rain rattle the strained drum of my nerves already for some days the evenings bawl like insatiable calves laden a roomful green with sere birch leaves of tomorrow windows open – blood clot circulates in the air heavily around the head furled wet, cold bed sheets with dense corners flapping their skinny hands time gives me a foggy kiss I´m asphyxiating it gets warmer I don´t feel the wings it feels good but already some black crows are wandering around...

Esas palabras...

Eran sólo un par de palabras versadas como una cerca impecable
Pero me llenaron y se derritieron en compota dulce de ruibarbo
El hilo de mis pensamientos se mareó y se trenzó muy ceñido
Cruelmente suave alrededor de mi cuello como besos

Goodbye heart will be bleeding for some time and
my eyes will be moist from the rain
but finally I can see it clearly...
the night is bright and frosty moonlight
sheds over my face like a shroud
you go towards nowhere and disappear to my sight
the time will wash away your steps
I stand as a pillar of salt, it doesn't hurt anymore
my heart is petrified lava
extinguished volcano, the black hole
stillness in the desert
shrammed stars are silently snowing
goodbye, my dear dead friend...
