There’s a racist bald guy talking to his pal in front of me while we wait for the fireworks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Priceless. Lol just wanted to share this and didn’t know where since I don’t have any social media. Couldn’t he pick another place to be a moron?

Meek

Wish I had more hurtful words to say —

Anything that would cut us both so deeply 

I couldn’t say it to your face, but

My hate pool is shallow

As a bird bath fountain. 

Anything too terrible to speak

Is always said in front of a mirror

With dry lips and a tired face

.

I’m the meek

And the lamb, 

I am the doves of peace

Flying in confusion

.

Ignite my lost

Aggressiveness…

My justified anger

Must be hiding somewhere

In the lonely depths of some blue ocean

Ready to resurface

.

This isn’t a poem…? I suppose I’m just venting. People get so revolted with me for not feeling angry when I should be… It’s tiring. I wish I could change because this characteristic can be a huge flaw too.

Collapsing

A heavy atmosphere paints

This room with violent colors. 

I could never be, and I never was

The things the dream lantern has guided me to become

.

The house collapses

Within itself

To bring out all the sealed souls

While I hide in the corner

With doubts condensed in my every tear —

I’m blinded by the light outside

Creeping on me from the tiny crevices

Oatmeal

Keats, dead at twenty five;

De Azevedo was gone by twenty;

A myriad of other young talents

Falling like raindrops —

What am I doing with my life

Eating oatmeal at 2pm on a rainy day

In a lonely January? A few months

To meet the sixth year

Of my fall into

This assumed adulthood of chaos and cheap meals

.

Not a poem, I guess? More like a passing thought.

Muito Obrigada

I want to thank everyone for the lovely year, even if we never got to interact. Thank you for reading my posts, poems and the like, even if occasionally. 

Thank you for those who were sweet and kind to me, especially when I really needed sweetness and kindness in my life. You know who you are, I never forget anyone. 

I haven’t been very active on WP (or anywhere) lately, but maybe things will change soon. I have to visit many blogs. 

Wishing you happiness.

A beautiful and peaceful 2018 for all of us
