Prayer

Fall upon me with all the strength I’ve never known,

Bury your claws in my skin.

Bleed the fever

That lights up the world

.

Fever that lies to death,

Fever that traps all luck;

Such warm, lying fever.

A fever to kill you without a feeling.

Fever to make me doubt my humanness 

.

Vinícius Pessoa

Loosely translated by Lira
