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




Ukrainian Girl (Thoughts)

Months ago, a train sent her down to

The silence of the dead,

But you still send her text messages

Thinking she will reply somehow

From the other side,

Where sunlight will never reach


Don’t you know

They have no wifi there

In the quiet depths? She will never respond,

But you need a friend on this side;

Tell me how to help you heal the wound

That will always stay open




Big eyed cherub,

Your clumsy arrows

Make hearts bleed

And stain high hopes red — my wishes

For tomorrow

Lie in someone else’s hands



Love will leave us bare

In the garden grove,

Wild and pure,

We could survive holding onto light.

If your body gives away

Underneath the weight of the world, it’s unforgiving.

Hands pull, clench all the life from us all,

And it takes,

And it takes…

Love will leave us bare,

But love will lead us there —

You were not created

For a world that keeps you small


Yvette Young



Shiny spheres of mumbled words

And shared secrets 

I will always regret telling you.

The pearls I found

When I swam in your eyes

And drowned in their blue

Have lost their value — tiny crystals

Of salt water

Reflect light to me,

And nothing more


I only remember you

When I selfishly wish

I could be embraced by comforting arms



City Tour Ramblings

Sunshine breaks through the clouds; in a dirty city

Where no one has time to breathe anymore.

Pollution or human nature?

Perhaps God is angry at us.

Maybe he’s long forgotten

About the people caught in the moment between now and eternity




Beating around reality,

Getting caught in the bush. 

Endymion sleeps without knowing:

I had a love I lost in the stratosphere.

We never said a word,

I bit holes in my cheeks. 

Tunneled to a sound you can’t make;

It’s a wave,

And like all waves,

It diminishes


Thank you, Ayde. Wouldn’t have found that without your comment.
