Bruise(r)


A slam of door
Bang!
and one bruise was formed

it is round, not totally
purple with some color of blood
just on center
a contusion, say the experts

I can't say ~nothing~
They always know more than me

But i suffer and i see
the hemorrhagic tissue
and it is bigger and bigger
as much the time pass

Ironic

time pass by for heal
so time is friend of my bruise
enemy of my reaction

i squeeze the soft purple flesh

more dead than alive

and is like it said to me
I am giving the pain,
I am more alive than you

Interesting

I cant do anything

the time, the bruise, the blood

and....
They always know more than me

    although i have heard americans speak the same way (a few americans; i always thought 'they don't know how to speak properly') as you have in the following line and another in this poem and another in another poem, i feel you MIGHT want to check on your english usage here.

    I can't say nothing.....To me, Poetheart, ....can't.... nothing is a double negative and is not the proper way to express what i THINK you want to say. i THINK you want to say I can't say anything. am i correct? ?

    i especially enjoyed this line: so time is friend of my bruise. thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply

    Dear Poet....  If you read me literally, you will not understand me... the grammar is important to me.... English sounds different to me and beats wildly in my heart and i can't do anything.... English is sweet and brings me freedom more than Portuguese... even I do not understand that or myself.... please be more lenient with me....

    Dear Altair, in english you have bruise and bruiseR that means one who knocks or hurts (is the theme of the poem) . So, i think is about the door thumping on the poet, that triggered all.
    When i said they always know more than me is like say: they always win, with their violence. (Report) Reply

    Dear Thomas, its about violence but is not phisical only. Perhaps an association between the body and the mind. Thanks Poet and kisses. (Report) Reply
