From: Have a Seat (2011)


Something's silently sparkling
In that smoky water glass
A man's heart silently boiling
As he hands it to the young lass
A rather bitter taste
His arms around her waist
Confusion, daze and blurry eyes
Her aching brain, pain and raging skies

Unable to cry
Unable to shout

Shrivelling, clutching, choking feeling
Worse than fire, somehow colder

He left the room and left the poor girl
Crooked and shaking
In the corner of this befouled chamber
She could not move
Trembling like the teardrop in the
Corner of her eye
All senses lost, in this slow
Melting frost, and pitch-black shadow
Persecution of body and mind
Lethal poison, that fatally binds
Her heart with disturbed passion

Everlasting fears
Nightmares of unclear memories
Heart-deep scar that still bleeds
Tarnished and futile reveries
Behind her tainted eyes
Her sullied soul won't ever be the same
And she still watches the sunrise
But the colours now seem so tame

Uncurable misery
Stolen virginity
Unspoken tragedy
When the miracle of life is a fatality
When life and death take place inside a body

Numbness and dampened cries
Coming back on the sunrise
In the corner of a crime scene
In daybreak light, in betweens
Randomly searching the floor
For pieces of her now impure
Stripped and weakened body
Of her lost integrity

Grazed, scorched deep into her womb
Haunted by a death she cannot assume
Besmirched, for the rest of her life, feeling deprived
For a heinous act, to be forever connived
