Shadow Of Life

I am a victim and you know that I know this.
Je suis une victime et vous savez que je le sais.

You say that you love me,
But the words lose their meaning
When they are passed through the filter
Of the reason and truth.
Vous dites que vous m'aimez
Mais les mots perdent leur signification,
Quand ils sont passés à travers le filtre
de la raison et la vérité.

I wish you would have been the man of my dreams
Or, at least, I wish you would have made
Our apparent love be
Rather an illusion of reality
Than a reality of illusion.
J'aurais aimé que vous ayez été
L'homme de mes rêves ou, au moins,
Je voudrais que vous ayez fait
De notre amour apparent
Plutôt une illusion de réalité
Qu'une réalité d'illusion.

I wish you to be aware that,
With every victim that died,
You're increasingly poor with a feeling
And still less able to love again.
Je voudrais que vous sachiez
Qu'avec chaque victime qui est morte
Vous êtes de plus en plus pauvres avec un sentiment
Et encore moins capable d'aimer à nouveau.

And every time you kill
Love in self, your dreams, her dreams,
You just stay only in the shadow of life.
Et chaque fois que vous tuez
L'amour en soi, vos rêves, ses rêves,
Vous restez seulement dans l'ombre de la vie.

Love stands before us in the shadows. Expressed in two languages but are relevant in all.
So deeply profound and intensely incisive, your lines pierce the truth that is in our hearts and the reality that the more we hurt others, the less capable we are of love. Bravo! 10+++
A powerful poem. I really like it. I especially liked these lines: And every time you kill Love itself, of yourself, of herself You just stay only in the shadow of life.
