A simple new life

Padrão

One week in Birmingham. So many feelings inside me: happiness, loneliness, fear and good vibes about the future. It’s not easy to stay far from home, but the sensation of freedom is too big. It brings me peace all the time.

So, when you face a big challenge in front of you, just do it. Specially if this stuff causes you a huge fear. Fear is good and makes you walk.

I keep walking and discovering new friends, places and challenges. Brum, as they call the city here, is full of flowers, even in autumn. I walk in the street and see poetry around me, everywhere. It’s not easy, but it’s worthy. Believe me.

Just for you

Padrão

Summer Villanelle

You know exactly what to do –
Your kiss, your fingers on my thigh –
I think of little else but you.

It’s bliss to have a lover who,
Touching one shoulder, makes me sigh –
You know exactly what to do.

You make me happy through and through,
The way the sun lights up the sky –
I think of little else but you.

The movie in my mind is blue –
As june runs into warm july
I think of little else but you.

But is it love? And is it true?
Who cares? This much I can’t deny:
You know exactly what to do;
I think of little else but you.
