Agony

Come forth through the light
My eyes wide open are full of tears.
Come forth if you want my heart
To know of your human presence.

I buried today the past and
I am looking forward to hearing from you;
My deadened senses scream in the silence,
My mind tries to put together
Some leftover pieces.

I've been in the crocodiles' cage
And I've been chopped off
And I've been dead and came to life
And I've been evil and came to light.

Come forth, there is nothing left.
But, I can offer you the hot ashes
Of my quenched love,
I can offer you a dream life
And the song of the pierced nightingale.
