Basta-me um pequeno gesto,
feito de longe e de leve,
para que venhas comigo
e eu para sempre te leve...

- mas só esse eu não farei.

Uma palavra calda
das montanhas dos instantes
desmancha todos os mares
e une as terras mais distantes...

- palavra que não direi.

Para que tu me adivinhes,
entre os ventos taciturnos,
apago meus pensamentos,
ponho vestidos noturnos,

- que amargamente inventei.

E, enquanto não me descobres,
os mundos vão navegando
nos ares certos do tempo,
até não se sabe quando...

- e um dia me acabarei.

"The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2010 to Liu Xiaobo for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China. The Norwegian Nobel Committee has long believed that there is a close connection between human rights and peace. Such rights are a prerequisite for the 'fraternity between nations' of which Alfred Nobel wrote in his will."

One Letter Is Enough

for Xia

one letter is enough
for me to transcend and face
you to speak

as the wind blows past
the night
uses its own blood
to write a secret verse
that reminds me each
word is the last word

the ice in your body
melts into a myth of fire
in the eyes of the executioner
fury turns to stone

two sets of iron rails
unexpectedly overlap
moths flap toward lamp
light, an eternal sign
that traces your shadow

I need a wake up call from what life can really be,
I need a call from reality.
Look me deep in the eyes and it’s easy to see,
A distant world reflecting me.

I can’t help but wonder why,
I should feel the need to cry.
Time passes oh so slowly by,
Am I being consumed by, lies?

I’m a myth,
Not a story,
I’m a fairytale with a different twist.
I’m fantasy, not your ordinary.

I dream with reality,
I see a world of lies,
With stereotypes,
And no originality.
He dreams with me,
I’m everything,
He wants to be.
