Sometimes walking the same paths does not mean reaching the same place...

My spirit slides

For some days

In a garden of Loire

Where past,

Present and future

Cross the same maze.


I run through a castle

Looking for a child

With angel eyes

And cupid arrows

Who has felt a rustle.


You and I walk the same stairs,

In the same time,

With the same steps,

From different angles…

And we’ve never met. 


I run through a garden

Where tenderness and drama meet.

I feel your steps under my feet

 And that becomes a burden.


My soul is the owner

Of a private castle.

Its fretful limits

Are part of my design.


You and I cross the same maze:

Your steps came closer

For some days…

We cannot meet,

We’ll never meet…
