Poems by Glória Sofia

 

Celebration

I celebrate the castrated peace
Baptized by the goldfish
Sweats by mines sown
Distributed in coastal areas
I celebrate the ruins of your lips
The disgrace of your smells
What breaks in the stars of your hair

I celebrate the demolition of poetry
The dunes of drowning words
In a tablet grain

I celebrate the urgency of the destruction of the glow
Union of your eyes and sorrows
From letters that laugh at heartbreak

I celebrate miss the letters
Carmins breaking off from the clouds
From the bloody sky
And peace in splashes

 

Poem Singing

I sing stars for you
I sing the leading hands
The blood in your chest
I sing the riches of my words
I sing the anger of having met you
I sing the violence of your silence
I sing the tears of your past
I sing the ember of your feeling
Singing, Singing, Singing, and Singing
Because I can’t cry

 

What if poetry and peace

And if the galaxies exploded
In the chest of memory
And if the memories spread
On the wall of being
And if they got together again
Just stay there again
Hot and painful memories

I simply begged
Some kind of sound

To shake the heart of memory
The silent memories that blind me
When the wind tells the sea
That the years age the dreams
And that poetry resides in prison
And not in freedom
That poetry lives in hate
And not i peace
I want only sad wind
To scream that
De poetry is frees

Like in bird
The bird the sing only in trees
and not in the sky
Moon, don´t raize me op
Moon, you just schine in my tears
Sun came with peace inside poetry
Inside wing of the thought
What if poetry and peace
Is only in your eyes

 

Only poetry frees

A bird is not free
Even when it the sky
With the winds clinging to the wings
Dreams become a cold current

The melody is not free
When the sound is dispersed through thought
It becomes trapped between the fingers of the soul

The smell was never free
The aroma may be the sweet image of innocence
Of a child, even without freedom

The taste was always crushed
Smashe by greediness
Is lost in a locked freedom

The kisses have always been meshed with passion
Only poetry frees men from the pressure of having
Translate:Anita Carapinheiro

 

Fragile

The misery of love created me
Heart weakened by heartbreak
From your amputated arms
De government blind
For pride and male chauvinist
Your mind is a shield
That protects the spear from my madness
The healing of the fragile of my emotion
Your mind is a shield to protect us
Yours words bring peace
And in my eyes I give you flowers
