“I heart ***” or the Hamburg graffiti

I lie awake
awake as you could possibly be
when it’s dark outside and you’re dreaming

I lie and think
as much as you could possibly think
when your thoughts are limited to a single name

I start to sing
as loud as you could possibly sing
when there’s nothing left to say

I get up and walk
as fast as you could possibly walk
when you’re turning around in circles

I stop to look
at something I can barely see
a graffiti written on the harbour walls

I stay to watch
as closely as you could possibly watch
when raindrops are clouding your vision

I shake my head
it can’t be true what I have noticed
that simple sentence could have been from me

I go to bed
as much as I would like to stay in town
to run around and seek more signs of you

I lay and dream
as much as you could possibly dream
when it’s dark outside and you lie awake

Hoffnung means hope…
