Only the Echo Remains, by J. W. Cassandra

Earth breaks, sky falls down,
Burst of flames licks the atmosphere,
Flame-sea breaking through the throat of depths
Mingles into sky-blue-deep blackness…

The flames blaze up, typhoon rages,
Thunderstorms run through the sky and earth,
This is how pain is sweeping along
On my fiery-black fingers paralyzing,
I play the piano with the melody of black pain
Lame – listen to this black race,
Hear its fiery shooting,
Feel its titanic arch, its darkness-bringing
Torment, biting like a snake!…
And if earth breaks, sky falls down,
In response, only the echo remains:
„Tell, let the black pain diminish!
Tell me, is that still me?”

Tell, let the black pain diminish, my song!
Tell me, is that still me, my song?…
In response, only the echo remains…
