André Frenaud: I Have Never Forgotten You

21 August 2018


Nameless now, and faceless,
No trace of your eyes left or your pallor.
Released from the assault of desire
In your lost image,
Voided by the false vows of time,
By the counterfeit coins of love redeemed,
By all that lost profit,
Freed from you now
Free like the dead,
Living my lonely sweated life,
Toying with stones and with leaves.
When I slide between gentle unloved breasts
I rest once more on your absence,
On the living corpse you make
Through your power ordained to undo me
To the very end of my silence.
