A Shadow among shadows

A shadow among shadows,
My glance,
No longer touches others.
It crosses, and searches
Further away,
For I struggle
To not exist much longer,
To not slip too quick,
Through the colors of time,
And I try to fight
Against my agonies,
Specially those,
In which there is not
Another spring!

Awarded - Prix Litteraries De la Vocation - France

The original version in French is below:

Ombre parmi les ombres

Ombre parmi les ombres
Mon regard
N'atteind plus les autres.
Il travers
Et il se cherche
Bien plus loin,
Car je me debat
Pour ne trop pas exister
Pour ne pas glisser
Trop vite entre les doigts du temps.
Et je me laisses encore lutter
Contre mes peines
Surtout celle
De ne plus avoir
Un nouveau printemps
