l'horizon du vide



J'écoute en boucle. Des tranches de mon passé défilent devant mes yeux. Des bouts, des fragments éparpillés qui tentent de composer un tout. Le défi d'un tout qui dans l'ensemble me semble vide. Je fixe la route et les règles. Le sens m'y amènera à force. Je me charge du reste et scrute souvent l'horizon aride. Je vois si bien les contours accuser mon ombre. Léger et glacé par la peur. J'esquive ou force cette esquisse sur le tard. Mais le temps me manque. Je tire si facilement les traits. Je me nourris des autres. Je reconnais nos mots et porte leur douleur. Je me décharge. Je me disperse dans la gravité de mon propre vide, mais y trouve refuge. J'y trouve l'attente. L'horizon évident se dessine à un vide près. Je crois que j'approche mais la pression m'étouffe. Parfois je me crois prêt. Peut-être garder le meilleur pour la fin... jusqu'à épuisement.



thomas dybdahl - still my body


Once upon a time, I was feeling fine
I was in my youth's prime and there was nothing I could do but
hang loose and let the world take me places I had never seen
nobody told me what to do and nobody told me what to
dreams these days consists mostly of you and me
we run from place to place and seemlessly we end up
where we started that night
when just a quick glance from across the room
was enough to send me to the moon

... still my body aches
still my body aches
still my body aches
still my body aches

From the time I was doing push-ups and sit-ups
I figured I had to be strong for you guys
in case anything happened and I was left to take care of you all
I exhausted myself from my tireless effort to be a good man
I was afraid, I was petrified and the days grew darker and
longer and though my body prevailed,
it sent shivers down my spine to think that I'd someday grow weary of this life
this life that sometimes feels like a big joke
where death was the final punchline that everybody waited for
but I'm not ready yet
I have a new vigour and I intend to see this thing through to the end,
my friend

... still my body aches
still my body aches
still my body aches
