Treasure Island

Poetheart (back)

(05/23/1960 / Rio de Janeiro)

I gaze you into your eyes and you lie to me!


Just a brown glove
what was left of her memory

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

aft er all lies to me

like a curse that you put on me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
there was a woman in leather gloves
delicate hands and thin
blue dress in tulle
sewn by their own hands
a brown Chanel purse
distinction of a chic person
the girl next swirled dress
embroidered bag and satin shoes
how to follow her silhouette
and charm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I remember when i ask

Why airport?

you smiled to me

bitter smile

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

you take my hands

was like were going to the movie

no one single drop or regret in your face

just a smile

hard to me to decipher in that age

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
was no easy to me
Santos Dumont Airport
Rio de Janeiro
a taxi please!

Alone!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But the fact is or was

i gazed into your eyes

and you lie to me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now i have your fashion gloves

for a tiny hands

from a elegant woman

is what remains

and a wound on my heart

but with charm of course!

    Must have flown away to France. That is why it was a good reason to speak french.
    After all lies do fly away. Leaving someone holding a brown bag full of sad memories and little gloves. (Report) Reply

    deceived that age of our youth
    in our dreams
    although we became mature in our driven motion of our duds (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
