Waltz For Zizi

(7 march 1988)

I Think I'll Paint It, On The Walls Of My Grave


No matter how many times,
good bye, sprouts on my lips,
I always end up, among the leaves
falling from your yellow castle,
writing you a new poem
of love and betrayal.

Your castle, with it's towers
seems like he's trying to grab the stars.
But some of them are mine, woman.
You are such a monster!

But you are also beautiful, with your gold hair,
with your green eyes and freckled cheeks,
and maybe that's my
reason
for not letting my heart forget your face.

And I think I'll paint it, on the walls of my grave,
(when one day, death will cover my eyes)
because I love you, of course.

Well, good bye for today
and see you tomorrow
in another poem, you will never read.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
