it’s been a year darling,
what are you doing here?

he has kind eyes and a gait that
is unsure, uncertain but fills me
with a steady reassurance.

i am finished with feeling wounded,
it is time for the scars to heal and
the sun to shine bright on me

because i deserve it. i deserve a
love that is unfaltering, unwavering,
full of earnest and true intentions.

life is complicated, our hearts cannot
always conquer, our hearts cannot always
go on.

what did you expect darling, that i would
be waiting? it’s been a year now,
leave me be.


if you could be anywhere else
would you still stay;

avec moi, mon amour.

wander through the strings
of this mind, the corners
of these elbows and the
fragile courting of fear.

mon amour, mon amour.
chérie, où vas-tu?

eyes like night and the smile
rare as a shooting star,
where have you gone, love?

où avez-vous passé et
comment puis-je vous
faire rester?

(where have you gone and
how do i make you stay?)
