Carlos Aragao

(10-17-1959 / Brazil)


Ja nao e a mesma,
essa casa nossa...
Ja nao se sente teu calor,
ou o odor do amor...

Ja nao sou o mesmo,
entre paredes....
uma ilusao perdida, num deserto
e uma eterna sede.

Ja nao se pode dancar,
(a musica mudou...)
respirar nao passa de tragar lembrancas,
de fantasmas perdidos.

Uma vida nao se mede por amores,
mas por ardores e nescessidades,
Ou por decencias perdidas,
E sim, por suspiros de saudades.

Viver nao e o voce,
O Eu da verdade,
Uma forca suprema,
Ou sequer....esta eterna busca de qualquer felicidade.

Ser nao e estar,
Ou pensar,
Entre arvores tao verdes,
E eternas....

Porque a duvida,
Entre verdes e cinzas,
Nao passa de calor perdido,
E de um sol vencido.

E nesta casa,
Onde o sol ja nao entra,
E que todo o verde nao redime.
Entre cinzas te espero, perdido...
...entre musicas e quartos que ja nao reconheco.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
