Diamante bruto


Tua beleza me persegue,
Em sonhos e pseudorealidades,
Em esquinas difusas e perdidas,
Intensamente viva em minhas memorias.

Procuro, desesperadamente, uma falha,
uma razao pra nao gostar,
E nesta busca, te vejo cada vez,
mais perfeita.

Olho tuas cicatrizes, e so vejo vida,
Olho teus minimos defeitos, e te vejo especial,
E nem a mais linda, te todas as perfeitas mulheres,
Podem se comparar a como eu te vejo,

E porque nada mais vejo,
E nada mais quero,
Te tornas unica,

E porque nada mais tenho,
Do que a ambicao de sonharte,
Te faco preciosa,

Outros apenas te olham...
Eu...te vejo lapidada.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
