Fragment from the volume:

Have you ever heard the light sing? Open the door and watch it hang on the walls, watch its crucifixion and maybe that’s how you will be able to understand my words … The light sings … sings of love, of white, of freedom … of life .. How I miss living! To live like you, the spectator, to cry, to love, to sleep, to dream! You look at me apathetically in this cold mirror and whisper words that only you hear. Do you think you’re far from me? You’re wrong! God, how much you look like me! Consciousness will play with you: it will lift you up when you least expect it and just as quickly it will throw you behind the scenes … next to me … (He walks away from the mirror, sitting down by the bed, preparing- and like a prayer ritual) How strange! This day seems different to me than yesterday … or tomorrow … All my thoughts collapse with a Babylonian noise, leaving behind not even ruins, but a barren, gray (screaming) void. lost God … I lost God! (lowering his voice) and now I’m suffocating in seconds!
