Poem by Issa Dioume: ‘Tumor, tu meurs’ {Experimental, Bilingual Piece}

Tumor, tu meurs
Like budding petals of a fleur.

Tumor, tu meurs
Like a languidly beating Coeur.

Tumor… Tu meurs
Like the mots of passants.

Tu meurs, tumor
Like the life of mes parents.

Tumor, je meurs
So be it, il était temps.

Tu meurs, ils pleurent
These are the tears des enfants.

Tôt le matin, j’irai cueillir la rosée, des fleurs du lendemain.

  1. Yes it’s an attempt at using some of the language tools at my disposition. Now is the age of international travelling writers! We can weave all languages to touch all hearts and minds! To bring unison and comfort as far as we can.

  2. Hello Issa, recently I have been approached by a news blog called Flyhiee. They were looking for writers willing to let publish their poems in their newly created poetry section. I have accepted. If you have any doubts or questions or willing to take part, please send them your answer on the e-mail: flyhieeofficial@gmail.com

  3. Spicy and sexy––that’s what came to my mind as I take all the words in. I studied basic French 3 years ago but wasn’t able to use it so I have already forgotten most of it lol. All I remember is when you use “Tu” instead of “Vous”, this means the one you’re addressing is close to you, isn’t it? Correct me if I’m wrong though cos I’m not really certain haha
