Les Boîtes des Sentiments
When we still trusted each other I wrote poems for you,
about love, about laughter, about what I felt.
When we still trusted each other I made photos of you,
your shoulder, your breast, your birthmarks and hair.
But since there is no more reliance,
words rubbled up in my throat.
Now feelings escape from my eyes,
and that’s how I yell out my pain out to world.
