Talking about memories, wouldn't it evoke the past time that we keep alive forever, thanks to our books?
If we're looking for the key to memory, we must look back in time... and so, back to the past...
But what is time?
This unknown being which we'd like to give a face and that you can see everywhere...
Tell me your secrets time?
Who are you?
Where are you from?
Tell me the secret of my memories...
It is often said that time does not exist. That the present does not exist. That the future is not yet and will never be in the present. Therefore, only the past remains.
And memories... over and over again memories which sometimes you want to get rid of or which you end up accumulating in a library...
I'm facing you, time. I can only see you through a watch or a clock...
You're a persistent shadow...
I would have liked to touch you, to feel you, to better feel the memories that you make beat in me...
I would like to manipulate you, sometimes to go back in time, to relive the past, to relive a memory, sometimes to know the future, to reassure myself and to live a beautiful memory before having lived it...
Sometimes you scare me... scared of being too old... scared of losing time... scared of not being the same as before... or just scared of my own memories...
But the most beautiful thing in the end that lives in me thanks to you, dear time, is the memory that isolates me in a world apart. A world of my own that only I can understand, that only I can feel in the middle of nowhere. A world inside me, like a timeless heart engraved on my body.
Sometimes I would like to say stop time to live and relive the same moment and remember the same memory eternally. I would also like as a child who plays, to be the one who controls time, to also control my moments and memories.
If I come to dream of you, my dear time, you become a beautiful day, by the force of things, the weight of my memories, which I must then organize, structure and control by force in my simple memory as a human being.
Guardian of my memories, my dear time, I actually prefer to keep you as a door to knowledge that would give me access to every moment of my life and to all my memories, which I will be able to consult at will like an old book, an eternal memory of my life.
