Didn’t know whether I believed
Eyes were flooded with dark
Unaware of everything
Why did you
Chose me for this harsh punishment?
I owed what and to whom and I had to pay?
Feel light and free
Darkness is transformed into light that blinds me
The voices fell silent
Soul in peace
I follow the light
You know why you are taking me with you.
I’m silent, I believe…
I was longing for
to see your face
in the sunlight.
No steps heard behind me.
I shouldn't look back.
In a moment
you were gone.
I was left alone.
The fault was mine
If only I hadn't dared,
If I hadn't run behind you.
I should be left
Creating only mourning music.
The pain would be endless
but the fault,
unforgiven to me.
Compassion from none.
I loathe the sadness
to see in their eyes.
Even that, I don't deserve it.
Me, who I convicted
You my love
in eternal darkness.
Inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice
Based on greek mythology Orpheus who was the main representative of the singing art and guitar was married to Eurydice. When she died he created beautiful mourning songs and music that made nymphs and gods cry. They consulted him to visit the underworld and play his music to Hades and Persephony. When Hades and Persephony heard his music they agreed to let him take Eurydice with him to the world of the living. The deal included that Orpheus should be walking in front of Eurydice and should not look back at her until they both reached the world of the living. In the middle of the road Orpeus got anxious since he could not hear Eurydice’s steps and broke the promise, he looked back to see if she was indeed behind him. Eurydice disappeared immediately and Orpheus lost her again, this time forever.
Silence, just a word. The meaning of silence to you is death. To me is just isolation, of all those noises that offer nothing.
Silence, a moment of rest. A moment to hear my thoughts, to look inside me.
In silence words find me, one after the other, hold each other and start dancing. They come alive on this white piece of paper.
Pages full with images, memories, emotions. Out of nothing everything is born.
Worlds, stories. Humans, breathe, live, die and are born again. As if they never died.
Endless journeys to places far away. Magical, dark.
The biggest journeys. The journeys inside me.
I isolate myself from everyone to hear my silence, to speak its words.
In silence everything is transformed. Everything seems more real when heard in silence.
The look you had is always in my thoughts.
The one you had that last night.
I did not know it was the last.
You hugged me so tight,
A bit tighter would break me.
You would not see me again.
You said nothing.
For a minute only,
You just looked deep in my eyes.
Your eyes open wide while looking at mine
I was diving deep inside your mind.
I was drowning inside your head.
Getting lost forever,
A faded image of your mind
I couldn’t stand that look.
I tried to lower your head.
I didn’t want your look on me anymore.
You didn’t like it.
No, not like this.
Lowered your head and left
away from me…
