Du Fragtest MichDu fragtest mich, ob Du es seist,
Über die ich schrieb.
Du fragtest mich, ob Du es seist,
In die ich mich verliebt.
I sagte nein, und wusste nicht,
War das wirklich wahr?
Ich sagte nein, doch wusste nicht,
Das rechte Wort war ja.
An Old Man's Diary - TtutmSBooks.
They tell me that once I loved them, I sought them out with flaming passion to read – nay, devour – and that when I heard of a new one that interested me, I would seek it out and could not be held back until I had found it.
Ah, the days of old.
In the present, where is my time to read? What use to start a book I could never finish? I doubt I will live to see the next week, and when that comes, I extend my estimate only for the sheer reality pushed upon me.
I have no use for reading now.
Writing is something I need not finish. These loose pages take my mind, and so take it away from less, shall we say, “pleasant” things. It need have no relevance, no point. Perhaps none of it has.
Is this just the rambling of a daft old man? “An Old Man’s Diary – Things that used to mean Something”. Pah.
An Old Man's Diary - A Lucid MomentThis is a lucid moment.
How few have they become?
My falling, fading, passing,
it has now begun to drain me -
Cold winters pain me...
The sun no longer warms my aching bones,
and heavy tomes no longer set
my mind to rest.
I must remember, lest
the darkness take me wholly.
AloneYou tear me apart, like nothing else can,
Tear through my heart while I reach for your hand
Longing for safety, longing for you...
You let go. I flew,
To the depths of the dark in the deep wells of my heart,
The pits below the human soul.
Tears running, like sand through the glass;
I fall alone...
Alone, at last.
DoubtHow many others have stood
Where I stand today?
In our lonely lives so grey?
How many others have asked this question?
How many others ne'er found out?
How many others see it, feel it,
This dreary grey of doubt?
