Time, space : syncopation

Is time as fluid as water ?

Water of an edgeless aquarium, it seems like

Like an angelfish I am moving deeper

Deeper in the abysses to seize the intangible

 

Is space as narrow as a prison ? Feeling like a prisoner

Prisoner behind bars of life’s cage,  it appears like

Like a blue bird I try to break free from it, going further

Further towards the endless skies to grasp this possible

 

My mind is a whole, greater, definitely

Greater than the sum of the erratic parts of my body

Body for which salvation will consist of an equation

Several unknown factors that’ll drop me in syncopation

The Phoenix

Animal of Mystery

Powerful, disruptive

Timeless creature

Fragile and delicate however

 

Auto-da-fé

In a show of flames

You disappeared

Shadows and dust

 

In legends, we didn’t believe

But you rose from the ashes

Stronger than ever

Whole, forever

 

Flapping your majestic wings

You flew at the speed of light over our indolent souls

Feathers of passion gathered again

And you took off to the most magnificient sky

 

Yes, this is your story firebird

No, you’ll never die…
