Banshee

Published by under Stories,Writing

You look out of your window on the seventeenth floor. It’s a cold, freezing night. The neon lights of the city below only add to the icy feeling. Heavy wind is shaking the building from the outside and singing like a wailing woman in the walls.

Your notebook is playing Cycles by Armstrong on loop. Its display is the only source of light in the room. The mix of Cyberpunk and Metal makes the perfect soundtrack for your current view over the metropolis. And your thoughts.

You know why you really had come here. No need to tell yourself some story.

You take a sip from your tumbler. Macallan Highland Single Malt. The best the bar downstairs had to offer was just good enough. You wanted to remember. You needed something worthy of the moment.

You close your eyes.

Darkness.

Not the darkness from the now, but from the moment of goodbye.

Your eyes were closed then, too.

You held her tight.

Your lips found her cheek in the darkness.

The softest kiss that was possible in the moment.

You did not want to let go. But time is never on your side.

Her beautiful, friendly, gentle face.

The shining light in her eyes.

Her wonderful smile, effortlessly bypassing all your defenses.

Only she knows how to always reach through to your core, your soul.

You feel that you’re melting inside.

She waves at you one last time.

Then she disappears into the city night.

You open your eyes again. Here, in the now. You feel the pain of the truth.

The Banshee is wailing louder now, stronger, accompanied by freezing rain hammering on your window.

You imagine her face over the skyline.

A single tear leaves your eye, rolls down your skin.

The city blurs away.

Armstrong’s fast and heavy guitar riff blasts through the room.

This stormy darkness won’t be over soon.

You take another sip.

Change

Published by under Writing

Hear the roar and you will know you’re aliveFeel the energy build in your soul‘Cause it’s time

Disturbed, Immortalized

 

After everything

has fallen apart,

there comes a moment

when you feel

that change

is finally approaching.

There,

all of a sudden,

you feel

your old self leave,

making space

for a new version

of yourself.

A version

that is

still shaping,

taking form,

not yet fully defined.

You find new music

for this period

of your change.

A new soundtrack,

a new rythmn.

Drained.

Life has taken a toll.

Too much has happened.

Weary.

Awakened.

Looking forward.

A fresh start is in reach.

Ready.

You need to reshape.

Redefine. Yourself.

What you want.

What you need.

Where you want to go.

Where you want to be.

What you want to be.

How much future

is there left for you,

you wonder.

Too many memories.

Too much experience

for illusions.

Still room for dreams.

Hopes.

Desires.

The Heavy Metal beat

of your heart

is still there.

May it only be

for just one more ride.

But that ride

you will take.

 

Don’t let hope become a memory.

Disturbed, The Light
