Inside

Water reaches up my chin and still goes up slowly,

slowly,

until I am entirely immersed.

How much time until it reaches the ceiling ?

You’re trying to watch what happens inside through the window

but all this water disturbs the vision of my floating body between the two curtains.

You’re wondering if I am dead or if I am still struggling.

You don’t know.

You never know anything anyway.

 

 

L’eau m’arrive jusqu’au menton et continue de monter doucement,

tout doucement,

m’immerge entièrement.

Encore combien de temps avant qu’elle n’arrive jusqu’au plafond ?

Tu essaies de regarder par la fenêtre ce qui se passe à l’intérieur,

mais toute cette eau ne fait que troubler l’image de mon corps flottant entre les deux rideaux.

Tu te demandes si je suis morte ou si je me débats encore.

Tu ne sais pas.

Tu ne sais jamais rien.
