He seemed to possess an emerald life:
a German international goalkeeper
with a beautiful wife and daughter
but he suffered from an unseen insidious disease
and couldn't keep malignant thoughts at bay,
they had returned like a thick poisoned mist
and he felt it was no way to exist.
But he wore the mask of serenity
then cast it aside for the acting
became too difficult and he left the stage.
On a Tuesday in November
he desperately drove for hours on end
before stepping out in front of a train
so the Furies...would not come back again.
