Find someone to replace me.
Find me in someone else instead.
The role is playing me,
if there is applause, I do not bow my head.
I’m the one who doesn’t dwell
on the way, like a message,
no chance to say, I’ve felt here well.
If arriving, show me passage.
Not the first and not one of many,
not a question and not an answer.
The one who can wait any,
beyond the time where no men were.
Who is blinded lifeless
lives dreams in darkness.
Translated from the Hungarian Poem of Tamás Filip, “Sötétben éli”.
