Graffiti poets

Cryptic poetry from the ladies' toilet in a nearby shopping centre:

Which would seem to mean something like (free translation, in the original all the lines rhyme):

She's been found.
Who? Eternity.
It's the sea, gone away
with the sun.

And on another wall it said:

J'aime tes yeux
mais je préfère les miens
car sans eux je ne pourrais
voir les tiens

I love your eyes,
but I prefer mine,
for without them I
could not see thine.

A better class of graffiti than most!

Nice poem! Sometimes people can be more creative in the loo.

If I'm not mistaken, those are the first few lines of a poem by Rimbaud.

So I am told ("L'éternité"), and the other is apparently a Chinese proverb.
