Arc de Triomphe

The way to you
is so overloaded
I try to move between the cars
as a snake between the stones
playing a role like an actress
who loves her craft
just that I don’t love it
I only pretend

and when I get stuck
I change the traffic lane
I choose to go back
to escape
maybe I’m not the Sun
you thought I was
sometimes I’m a cloud
full of rain

I look at you
and see the Arc de Triomphe
and then turn back
and see nothing at all
but I cannot hold on to one lane
I don’t like this way
and I have to go on
