Poem by Taghrid Bou Merhi (Líbanon-Brazil)
Stupidity and Emptiness
I used to invoke stupidity to justify your existence in my life.
And My heart used to advise me every time to go on with my stupidity with some coolness.
So I built a barrier between me and myself, that pushed me to to join the void.
I had to open my heart to an old picture embedded in the walls’s protrusions, and to scratch its flesh with the nails of memory, may it lift me up so that I may avoid its evil.
I learned that the divisions of stupidity can be gained through pain, and features become like papers, connect its alphabet and polish it like a professional poet.
When things started to shrink, and my troubled heart began to accompany my features to the stage, I was afraid to lose the bet and lose my polluted stupidity and lose you as I lost my ugly doll when I was a child.
I started hearing the screaming of my features whenever I lost part of my stupidity.
It is said that since then, I have stopped in the visible range, as a statue that has lost its being…
