Lockenmädchenfrau | A Poem

Scroll down to content

she stuffed her body

to crush your traces

*

she had nowhere to go

so she put herself to rest

inside of her own body

*

in order to smile and accommodate

she was violent inside

*

she looked out of the window

and wished that nobody would find her there

*

she turned towards the world

to leave her own body behind

*

she became a spectator

blind to her insides

*

she abandoned her body

not even love could bring it back to her

*

she internalised it

when you told her that she was powerless

*

I never saw the depression on her face

but it was there

the whole face

not in a detail

what she had become

*

and slowly

her voice

was not a singing voice anymore

*

she let it happen

*

she left us in a white dress

*

death in her head

life couldn’t bring her back
