"Aแดกแด€แด‹แด‡ Iษด Yแดแดœส€ Dส€แด‡แด€แด"
war ursprรผnglich der Titel eines Poems. Dieses entstand nach einem sehr intensiven Gesprรคch mit jemandem. Es ging รผber Trรคume und Begegnungen, die kein Zufall sein kรถnnen. รœber Schicksal und unsichtbare Fรคden, die uns mit bestimmten Menschen verbinden, egal, wie weit sie voneinander entfernt sind. Das Schicksal fรผhrt Menschen aus Grรผnden zusammen, die wir nicht verstehen kรถnnen. Die Fรคden verknรผpfen sich weiter und bleiben fรผr immer bestehen, selbst, wenn diese Person wieder aus unserem Leben verschwindet. Es geht um Momente, um Augenblicke, die so fragil sind wie Schmetterlingsflรผgel. Die Texte und Poems spiegeln alle dieses Thema wider. Besondere Menschen wandern durch unsere Trรคume.ย Ob wir ihnen je darin begegnen, ist ungewiss. Doch wir spรผren ihre Prรคsenz nach dem Aufwachen โ€“ wie einen Windhauch auf unserer Haut. Und sie hinterlassen ihre Spuren. Eine Legende besagt, wenn man nicht schlafen kann, ist man in den Trรคumen eines anderen wach. Jemand wanderte durch meine Trรคume und ich habe ihn in diesem Buch unsterblich gemacht. Diese Gefรผhle zwischen den Zeilen verewigt. Der Titel hat also eine wirklich tiefe Bedeutung. Er ist ein Dialog, der wirklich stattgefunden hat und ich werde ihn immer in meinem Herzen tragen.

"Awake In Your Dream" is about dreams and encounters that cannot be coincidences. About fate and invisible threads that connect us to certain people โ€“ no matter how far apart they are. The threads continue to knot and stay forever, even if that person disappears from our lives. This book is about moments that are as fragile as butterfly wings. About strangers, who wander through our dreams. The uncertainty, if we will ever meet them there. But we feel their presence after waking up โ€“ like a breath of wind on our skin. And they leave their marks. There's a legend that says: if you cannot sleep, you are awake in someone else's dream. Someone wandered through my dreams and I immortalized them in this book. These feelings are perpetuated between the lines. "Awake In Your Dream" is collection of thoughts, poems, poetic texts and dialogues, combined with black-white photographs and illustrations. It's a book about darkness, longing, nightmares and daydreams. I describe my fascination for the night โ€“ for dark and broken things. The book includes mainly English and only a few German poems. (The German-speaking share is about 20 percent.) Please note that some excerpts may contain mature content.
I want to write about the scars people leave behind.ย 

I create whole worlds out of nightmares.
I write poems about the scent of the night. About the stars and why I see them differently since you started to forget me.
I want to hide secrets between the lines and hide truths as secrets. I write about people I never really met but in my dreams. About touches that go deeper than skin and connections that break as easily as snowflakes in the wind.ย 
About the book:ย 

This is not a classic type of poetry book.
The author tells a whole story through her poems. She conveys her feelings into metaphors and describes them with a melancholic, dreamlike language. This book is 160 pages full of prose, poetry, thoughts, dialogues, letters, photographs and illustrations. It's not just poetry โ€“ it's a very personal piece of art.
