  :
  :  it all started many years ago...
  :  I can clearly remember...
  :  the moments on the roof top of my sister's house...
  :  when we were starspotting
  :  and talking about the things of our interest...
  :  we told secrets to each other...
  :  and our deepest fears...
  :  it felt so good that sleep came easy that night...

   "This colly was actually  planned  to be released back in 1999,  but as I
    am longing for  perfection I wanted  to include an Ascii-Logo  for every
    poem  I've done.  It was far too much for me and  my limited time  to do
    them all by myself so  I contacted some famous ascii-writers  to help me
    out. ...  But it  didn't work out as I planned  and now I'm  fed up with
    waiting for those logos... Just imagine beautiful ascii logos instead of
    those lame singleline shit, ok? Oh man, ascii artists - UCANTRUSSEM! ;-)

    Sometimes  I ask  myself what I'm doing all this here for?  So many time
    spent in computers. So many money spent in swapping.  So  many disks got
    lost in swapping.. but even swapping lost it's sense since the spreading
    of CD-ROM's.  If you wanna contact me  then send a mail to this address:

                                I've seen things
                          you people wouldn't believe
                 attack ships on fire off the shoulder of orion
          I watched C-Beams glitter in the dark at the tannhauser gate
                         all those moments will be lost
                                    in time
                                      like
                                     tears
                                    in rain
