She Looks Into Me — Paul Éluard

She looks into me 

The unknowing heart 

To see if I love 

She has confidence she forgets 

Under the clouds of her eyelids 

Her head falls asleep in my hands 

Where are we 

Together inseparable 

Alive alive

He alive she alive 

And my head rolls through her dreams.


Paul Éluard


Maybe I just don’t know where to look for good translations, but Éluard seems relatively hard to find in English. Hopefully I’m wrong. This poem is very accurate though, at least when compared to my book. Wish I knew who translated this so I could give them credit.
