4. I passed

I passed trees, bushes, willows. Far away I saw three white lights. A train, a lonesome train following the old rails to its doom. It might be a ghost train full of lost souls on their way to hell passing Ibbenbüren - who knows. Sounding like an ordinary train, it vanished into the darkness of the night. I saw large clouds and red lights at the far away power plant when I left the playground to my right. Murderers joined my demonic thoughts. I didn't know if a person who might have passed would be more scared of me than scare me. I saw the bright moon light reflected by the dark water and I prayed I might return home alive to write you about those experiences.

No person passed me. The old church's old clock reported the time of 11 pm. Still no cloud disturbed the clear sky which might be so close to heaven. Why did I come here, I thought. I was scared by the thoughts. How crazy must a person be to go to the lake at that time, alone? Why did I come there? I had nearly completed the round. The bright lights of the road, of the video shop, of the China restaurant already blinded me again. Taking a final look of the water and the sky I left the area and entered the road, grateful that I was still alive.
