Treasure Island

Alice Baudoin


Sometimes


Sometimes even gods are dying
And leave their traces on the sky
Like sunsets when they fall and die
Without smiling, without lying

They gently leave you in a shadow
As autumn covers you in yellow
Your empty world rests like a hollow
Without spring source, with no meadow

You are blindsided and deep
Long for a place to live again
Long for an earth to love again
As selfless as you are, as weak

Beyond the Heaven, in the white,
Unutterable lifelessness,
A bird of beauty and caress
Takes genuinely all your sight

To teach you fly again and hope
With its amazing coral wings
To show and guide you through all things
To teach you carry on and cope

Astounding bird of coral smile
Born from a tear of the sunset
Through all the pain that you can get
Will lead you gently to the aisle

Forgive the skies for their silence
Forsake yourself for all the past
Of strives that never, never last,
Of worries, anguish and absence

Let the extravagances go
Immutable are all these pathways
Defiling next to you like rays
Of inspiration and of glow

As many choices as stars
So many voices and yet
So poor wisdom in this thread
You're hanging full of the old scars

Do light the candle of the Lord
To see the one you should pursue
One to exult the truth in you
And your insight intimate cord

Do let yourself float again
Throne on clouds of heavy silence
Until no fear and no distance
Will tear you from blessed rain

Until the nightingale song
Reaches your ear and your feeling
The magic fountain of healing
Celestial good come from a wrong

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
