Prix Laurence 2018

Kieffer Sophie - Death on a visit



 

 

This time he is going to get me.

I am sitting on a stool in my dilapidated room.

The window to my left is broken and the folding shutters are old and shabby.

The dark light of the night peeks through them.

I am getting tired of all this waiting.

My breath is going heavily.

He is here.

My arms feel drained as I rest them on my worn trousers.

My head seems light, but still full of thoughts.

Will it hurt?

He is here.

My head feels heavier than ever before as I put it into my shaking, cold hands.

The hands that have worked so much and that have kept me alive until now.

That helped me to hide and to provide anything that kept life going.

He is here.

I put my elbows on my torn trousers and wait for him in the oppressive silence.

I can feel him.

My heart jumps and my legs start to tremble, which forces the ancient wooden boards underneath my stool to groan.

He is here.

I remember them, their love, their life.

They died, I survived.

Will I see them again?

He is here.

I know it.

I feel it too, in my chest, where my heart should be racing, but instead is losing its strong beat with every breath I take.

I have escaped him too often, but now it is over.

He is here.

My pulse is roaring in my head.

My blood feels cold, flowing through my rigid body.

He is here. Escape is impossible.

I fight no more, resist no more.

He is everywhere, surrounding me, taking me into his wide shadowy arms of eternal darkness.

Kieffer Sophie - Olivia





Licking my lips, seeing you there

Lying in the sun next to me

Your crusty skin completely bare

Your immortal taste sets me free

 

Your shape, greasy in the sunlight

My greedy mind, longing for you

How I wish I could have a bite

With every look, my craving grew

 

Forcing my hands not to touch you

Far too delightful is your sight

This insistent desire, new

My avid heart, contracting tight

 

A thrill of anticipation

Your presence, my only lifeline

You shall be my only ration

My sweet little olive, you are mine

Kieffer Sophie - La bague et la créature





Mon trésor, tu brilles comme la lune

Comme les eaux vives dominées par Neptune

Ta beauté, ma seule fortune

 

Mon précieux, tous ils te veulent

Les mortels s’arrachent leurs gueules

Bientôt, ils se trouveront tous sous un linceuil

 

Mon trésor, le seul à faire trembler mon cœur

Seulement nous, oublions les moqueurs

Sans hésiter, je te protègerai des pilleurs

 

Mon précieux, ils nous menacent, les stupides

Sans scrupules et, avant tout, cupides

Disparaissons ensemble, ne leur laissant que le vide

Kieffer Sophie - Blurred vision





All I see is her

Standing there, long legs

Blurred vision occur

My avid inner begs

 

Her graceful figure

Maddens me slowly

My world, disfigure

Strong passion, holy

 

Praising her allure

Feeling so jealous

All of her so pure

Thrilling eyes, zealous

 

All I see although

Her, I want to be!

What I did not know

All of her is me
