Hebert Logerie (Haiti)
A Painful Departure
You packed two suitcases
And you left without uttering a word.
This is worse than plunging a sword
Deep in my aorta. You left the premises,
For no apparent reasons. 'On what basis? '
I ask myself: ' Why behave like a beast? '
I have been at the windows,
For innumerable hours.
I am like a sick puppy,
A homeless cat lost a sea.
I am perturbed and confused.
I am incarcerated and abused.
I am searching everywhere,
And praying that a gush of fresh air
Will enter your brain, so you'll return home,
Where you are happy, under the foam
Of our Jacuzzi, with your sweetheart.
Please comeback to retrieve that painful dart.
The hours of the night have been long.
I long to see you again. The song
Is oddly morbid. The stress is horrendous.
I am lost in the desert of my own consciousness,
Without venturing outside, or moving a limb.
I am honestly scared like a lonely lamb
