Today I am sharing a bit of my life with you. A poem from my past.
It is in French because when I wrote it that’s just the way it happened. It was couple of years ago, after a not- so- great break up that let my heart open wounded and love still gushing out of it. Then for a while you are in that state of being. Something that makes you wonder what’s wrong inside of you, you know it will go away but at the moment you can’t just shake it off.
When I finally came out of that torpor (because life always goes on and what don’t kill you makes you stronger) and I saw him again (I was looking freaking hot by the way…) I wondered why in the world did he got so close to me that he made me feel that baaaaad????
Anyways. unfortunately, yes it happened to me. So when I looked back to understand what had happened, so I could either move on or avoid mistake or simply learn about myself, I understood who he was. And it turn my feeling into …wow I experienced something really deep. I forgave him, I felt bad for him and It’s part of my story now, it makes my future me.
Today, I was going through my external hard drive looking for something to inspire me and I found this poem I wrote. I talks about what I had time to grasp about him, during our relationship.
Un Intellectuel en quête de savoir
Sage en quête d’éducation
Educateur en quête d’élèves
Elève en quête de compréhension
Incompris en quête de lui-même
Lui en quête de paix
Pacifiste en quête d’amour
Amoureux en quête de vérité.
Anatomie d’un Roi écorché vif.
Toi, tel que je te vois.

So this is what it would be in english
An Intellectual seeking knowledge
Sage seeking education
Educator seeking students
Student seeking understanding
Misunderstood soul seeking himself
Him seeking peace
Pacifist seeking love
Lover seeking truth
Anatomy of a king skinned alive
You, as I see you
