To my lonely women

Still 
Mild
Subtle
Relaxing
Loneliness. 
You are raging,
Desperate,
Even dead already.
Are you?
You don't know.
No one knows.
No one notices.
No one cares.
No one is there.
And yet
There's a crowd 
Where you drown.
Touched by your wisdom,
Surrendered to your words,
Seduced by your smile.
You feel stunned,
Surprised,
Puzzled.
Empty?
Or open?
Everyone wants.
Nobody dares.
Are they scared?
Are you?
Carry on.

Da Jubilação (ou O Antídoto)

Hoje jubilei-me.
Deixei tudo para trás
E segui
Mais leve
E com mais peso.
Lancei-me no vazio
E voei
Em queda livre.
Larguei o que construí
E tornei-me monumento.
Rejeitei o que acumulei
E transformei-me em riqueza.
Hoje jubilei-me
De mim próprio.
Chorei de alívio
E sorri em frente.

In times of crisis

In times of crisis
People are wiser
In their madness
They are stronger
In their weakness
They are happier
In their misery

In times of crisis
People are richer
In their loss
They are focused
In their confusion
They are open
In their defense

In time of crisis
People are generous
In their darkness
They are good
In their evil
They are sweet
In their sorrow
They are tranquil
In their anxiety

In time of crisis
People are human
And its opposite
(Which is the same).

Poema em trânsito

O mundo a rodar ao contrário
A alma sufocada
A cabeça em água
Esqueletos no armário
Traumas de infância
Corações despedaçados
Trânsito encravado
Sinal vermelho
Tudo parado
...
E tu
No meio de tudo
Sem medo de nada
Fazes malabarismo aos corações
Brincas com o sol aos pares de três
E recolhes aplausos de ouro
E sorrisos de luz
Verde
Tudo segue
Confusão, buzinadelas, encontrões, esmurrões, insultos e insinuações
...
E tu
No meio de tudo
Sem medo de nada
És o homem mais rico do mundo
Vives a vida toda
Enches as bocas de luz
E fazes sorrir os dias

Touch

Warmth
That soft smell
The breeze at your fingertips
The shape of your head
Hair caressing the hand
The colours
Different textures
In different parts
Fluid
The cold skin
The pleasant weight
The kiss...
Silence
I remember.

Candle

I'm your novelty
You're my past
I'm your excitment
You're my hope
I'm your pleasure
You're my pain
I'm your heaven
You're my rain
I'm your warmth
Your my light
I'm your dream
You're my night
I'm your energy
You're my sigh
I'm your song
You're my silence
I'm your time
You're my curse
I'm your fire
You're my candle
I will burn
You will melt.

The Man

The man
Is a selfish beast
A lonely rider
A reckless creature
A fast paced traveler
A tipsy tramp
A committed lover
A distracted warrior
A passionate worker
An amused beauty
A confused soul
A scared father
A friendly buddy
A common dude
A piece of cosmos
A part of life
A part of me.
