Thank you, Chris! Very nice indeed.
I'll try to translate some brazilian stuff for you guys. But I'm not sure if I'll be able to write in english the essence oof it.

You are more than welcome my fair ladies, creatures as witty and beautiful as you both are, indeed a privilege to be able to write about you...

Re: Poetry & Literature Thread

i've just written that, all in the time of a breath...

Love is an open wound,
each time you think an hand
has come for that to heal,
it's about time it starts to bleed
Again. And you fall in the trapt
and starts loving again
only to get bigger the pain.

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Poetry & Literature Thread

^ It's very potent G! Extremely good.

But, if you don't mind me asking, why the sadness??? Surely, love is not this to you? I hope it isn't, and it shouldn't be...

Re: Poetry & Literature Thread

@Gaspa Have you seen the movie? It was quite known back then but you were probably still a toddler when it was shown. In case you haven't, the poem was recited out loud in class by Julia Stiles' character as an assignment. It was meant for Heath Ledger's character and he was also in class when it was recited. They were kind of mad at each other at this point of the movie, hence the theme of the poem. Anyways, I thought you might appreciate it more if you knew where the poem came from.

Love is an open wound,
each time you think an hand
has come for that to heal,
it's about time it starts to bleed




Such a bittersweet poem. I like it.
