I'm posting here some stuff, to see what you guys think. I usually write in portuguese, which is my mother language, but I have some things in english, I will share them with you. I don't think I write well, although many people say that's my greatest gift. Let's see...

Fast Forward

I apologize.
Apologize for wanting you.
Apologize for knowing you are my freedom.
I'm so sorry.
Sorry for wishing, sorry for breathing.
And no one can take you away for me.
I'm sorry for apologizing, because I know I shouldn't.

But I can't stop this feeling.
I'm sorry for taking so long.
But now, here I am.
And I'm never running away.
I'm sorry for trying to say that I love you.
It just doesn't sound right, when it's not recorded.
Your old record player.
I say I love you.

Play.
Pause.
Repeat.

Forever.

The Voice Within

I'm not dellusional, I don't feel like a holy angel, or a dignifying character that smiles in a different way. I sit beside the window, closer to the end. One step from eternity. I'm just about to get up from a commitment with illusion.
"Stay."
"Who are you?", I ask.
"Someone you cannot see."
"Go away."
"Are you staying?"
"No."
"I'm not leaving you alone then."
"I'm already lonely. No one needs me here."
"But you do."

It was there when I stopped. Thought. I'm not alone.

Come back.

And I have been
Standing up for what I believe.

Waiting, waiting,
For your smiles to live.

And what if I leave?
You left me broken
In that rag doll house.

And what if I live?
Will you smile?
Will you stay?

Paint my dreams with all your color pencils,
Stand up.
Believe.

Time

In a matter of seconds. It all falls down. Time lives, time dies. Time flies. Time goes, it comes. It's the last time, or only the beggining. Live with it. Go with the wind. Fly with eternity. Or let forever be wrong, as it exists. Or not.
Find me. Warn me. I'm the hand on your shoulder, pointing you the wrong way. Live the time, the time of your life. Fall with the wrong choices. And you'll never rewind.

If only I could.
If only I could turn back time for you.

But forever is a long time to be wrong.

Goodness, these are lovely! Nemo's on the right track here, the title of the thread really ought to be changed. The emotions conveyed are eerily familiar

Some favorite lines pulled out of context and copied here:

"I'm already lonely. No one needs me here."
"But you do."

Paint my dreams with all your color pencils (This one is extra-gorgeous!)

I'm the hand on your shoulder, pointing you the wrong way

Keep up the awesome work, I can only hope to write something this splendid. Can't imagine what your Portuguese works must be like!

Thank you all for your lovely comments...!!
I have won some contests when I was in HS of english poetry and portuguese poetry, and my work has not been evaluated by english native people.... so I'm really thankful!

I feel at the top of the world now! :p lol
