Omnis mundi creatura
quasi liber et pictura
nobis est, et speculum.
Nostrae vitae,
nostrae mortis,
nostri status,
nostrae sortis
fidele signaculum.

About this poem…

 


 

“I am female. I was born that way. I have had those feelings, those longings, all of my life. It is not unnatural. I am not sick because I feel this way. I do not need to be helped. I do not need to be cured. What I need, and what all of those who are like me need, is your understanding. And your compassion. We have not injured you in any way. And yet we are scorned and attacked. And all because we are different. What we do is no different from what you do. We talk and laugh. We complain about work. And we wonder about growing old. We talk about our families and we worry about the future. And we cry with each other when things seem hopeless. All of the loving things that you do with each other – that is what we do. And for that we are called misfits, and deviants and criminals. What right do you have to punish us? What right do you have to change us? What makes you think you can dictate how people love each other?”

– Soren, to Noor; “The Outcast” (Star Trek, The Next Generation)


All meine Tränen geweint nur für dich
Am Horizont steht ein Engel aus Eis
Die Kälte in mir bringt die Wahrheit zurück
Und meine Welt zerbricht für dich

All unsere Lieder für immer verstummt
Der Glanz deiner Augen erhellt meine Nacht
Zerreißt meine Seele mit jedem Blick
Und meine Welt zerbricht für dich

– Blutengel, “Schneekonigin”


Born from silence, silence full of it
A perfect concert my best friend
So much to live for, so much to die for
If only my heart had a home

Sing what you can`t say
Forget what you can`t play
Hasten to drown into beautiful eyes
Walk within my poetry, this dying music
– My loveletter to nobody

Never sigh for better world
It`s already composed, played and told
Every thought the music I write
Everything a wish for the night

Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin
Died for the beauty the one in the garden
Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom
Failed in becoming a god

“If you read this line, remember not the hand that wrote it
Remember only the verse, songmaker`s cry, the one without tears
For I`ve given this its strength and it has become my only strength.
Comforting home, mother`s lap, chance for immortality
Where being wanted became a thrill I never knew
The sweet piano writing down my life”

“Teach me passion for I fear it`s gone
Show me love, hold the lorn
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me
I`m sorry
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you

And you… I wish I didn`t feel for you anymore…”

A lonely soul… An ocean soul…

– Nightwish, “Dead Boy’s Poem”


Dry your eyes and quietly bear this pain with pride
For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave
And promise me they will never see, the fear within our eyes
We will give strength to those who still remain

The Cruxshadows, “Winterborn”


Searching for the true religion
I trust the faith inside my heart
Until the truth reveals the secret
Till then I’ll play
Till then I’ll play the game.
