I could hear your foot steps going away.
You didn’t stop nor I asked you to.
You went on without looking back once
and I sat turning my back against you.
I could hear the solitude valley,
confiding all its pain in the people who come there.
This valley told its life’s complications
to everyone who was ready to listen.
Oh! I felt envy when I heard her talk.
I wished I had someone to confide in.
I had someone once
but I had lost that person
in the wild forest of my existence.
I felt envious of that parrot who could sing its feelings so easily.
I have a voice but its not so melodious to be sung.
I kept on staring at the singing valley
and you kept on walking
without bothering me anymore with your friendship.
And there lifted a burden from my heart,
the burden of our relationship being destroyed,
because it was already destroyed.
