My files are corrupted
Dishonest technologies
Do you dream sometimes?
The skies were blue and it smelled
Of gasoline
It felt like a heavy heat
And I shivered
It felt like bliss, like love
The Slaughterhouse
I’ve never been as graceful
As when I leaned into your absence
It must have been a dream
Months later, the phone buzzes
Click n’
Swipe left
On my memory card
Do I still love you
Or is it you dreaming
Of someone missing you?

Le temps immobile

La rue était vide ce jour là
Je chassais l’odeur de la mer
Cet hiver là
Les coquillages craquaient
Sous les roues du vélo
Un écho de ta voix

Je te goûtais déjà
Sous les draps
De mon enfance
Je te cherchais déjà
Dans les plis temporels

J’avais attrapé
Un battement de tes cils

Et je t’aimais déjà

Let Go

Remember
The last note on the piano
The last moment before we knew
That the ever changing formation of clouds
The landscapes behind the widow seat
Eternal, still, were never to come back
Let go
Of you
Of me
Of the ties that once made sense to us
Once gave us purpose and meaning
When in truth
There is nothing to tie
And nothing to be tied to
Let me let go
Of the void you left behind
This hole that screams that you were here
Slamming against the hard wall of my fears
I should know better
This world flows away
And glimpses of wonderlands
Are lost and found, but always free
Escaping our desperate grasps
Leaving stings behind where there should be beauty
So let me let go
Turn off the music
And turn on the lights
I’ll close my eyes
And keep on dancing
Let go
If all we can do is forget
And lose ourselves in loneliness
Let go
If love is meant to prove us wrong
If life is a guess, a whisper backstage
Let go
And let the play begin
