Clearly not seen anywhere
Young shadow becomes invisible
Forgotten in the field
Because he was always transparent and ever clear
(No, not that one…)
The unnamed, untamed memory hits you like a fierce wave
Enveloping you and retreating
Nothing done, nothing can be done
To force his image to reappear, conjure him up.
Unseen powers protecting him from getting killed forever
As he dies every day
While we are waiting and stopping and slamming the brakes
And again he disappears as fast as one can glimpse that lost soul
And pray that we’ll never forget what we really never saw.
As he fades back into the battle zone
Making our promises, reassuring pierced hearts
That the numbness in the brain is only
There for a while if we watch and look out
Always, always, always and never, never, never…
Then ambivalence rules
We ignore it, hide it, vacuum it all away.
