Landing Like A Stranger

Poem By Alice Baudoin

I mixed you up with the sky
In the end of the day

With the leaves
Of the forest glim

With our song
"Landing like a stranger'

With life,
I filled my days with you

My ears, my laughter,
My echoes, my hopes,

My steps, my nights,
My wrinkles, my sighs

I should forget
How the world is rolling

The same colors for us,
The same seasons,

Same words
Same smile

I'll efface you
As a candle - dying,

As the snow on your path
Before walking

From my ears, from my laughter,
My echoes, my hopes,

My steps, my nights,
My wrinkles, my sighs

Still, could I ever efface you
From the orange sky of a sunset

From the leaves of the forest glim
And our song - "Landing like a stranger"?

Without you
I'm landing like a stranger

Into this world
As into any other

I have one last desire
Let me die
In the evening silence
By the sea

Inexpressible pain
Like silence
Like a hand full of darkness

Those Who Wander

-to Amitabh Bachchan-


“Those who wander along the beach

Sometimes

Sometimes even gods are dying
And leave their traces on the sky
Like sunsets when they fall and die
Without smiling, without lying

The Art Of Leaving Behind

Life is the art of leaving behind
A past and a passion for love
A mystery, a regret, a dishonorable moment,
An embarrassing instant of glory
