Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation

The French have a phrase
for crippling, unrequited love
They call it
La Douleur Exquise

For pulverized self respect
And awaiting acceptance
On bended knees
And the bitterness of truth

For how I bid
All joi de vivre

Maybe I should learn
How to speak French
They have a word
For everything
I can’t say to you
