STILL IN YOUR LOUDNESS

The sky is cold above us
And there are not enough stones to throw into the sea
Splashes swallowed, gulped within huge waves
My body is so light, but my heart feels heavy
Everything seems out of place
Like an empty kitchen, empty echoes
Your mouth and hands move, break and scream
But I’m not sure what these words mean
Every step sounds like an explosion
This town suddenly sounds too loud
Fingers are stretched and hands are given
Let me be touched again
Let me be loved again
Panic electrifies my limbs
You steal my breath
How can you move me
When all I have ever known was hidden gazes
Whispers and secrets
How can I look at you
When nothing has ever been, but the night
There never was any light
My eyes were full of clouds and rivers
Before I laid my gaze on you
You are the hurricane on my plain field
You take me away and tear me apart
But I remain still in your loudness
And all things blow away

Sweet Night

Sweet night
Hanging like a heavy cloak on my tired soul
You take me back to forgotten places
Where strength used to be draped in tenderness
And time quietly lifted
Sweet night
I used to see my mother weep at the sight of beauty
You let me weep on bathroom walls
It feels empty and lost
To hurt because of a beautiful thing
Sweet night
Sing me a lullaby until sunrise
Until I cannot see her face
Until her crackled lips vanish
From too many a wishful kiss
Sweet night
Take my words
And let me drown in dreams.
