Desperdicio


Total perda de tempo,
sonhos, ambicao e paixao,
Total perda de esperanca,
no que seria forca, realizacao e crianca.

Nos perdemos frente a frente,
Porque vi teus olhos e teu sorriso,
Nos perdemos na corrente,
num longo adeus, em um martirio...

E te vi crescido, como as arvores,
grande, forte, imbativel...
E te crei, meu, numa fe morbida,
e insensivel....

Te pus toda esperanca,
do que nao fui, e jamais serei,
Te idealizei numa danca,
Entre lordes, rainhas e reis.

E te vesti meus melhores sonhos,
para de ti, sugar o melhor desta vida,
Mas te despi, de todas as cores
numa missao comprida.

E entre farrapos,
Te sonho e te quero,
E Imagino teu rosto,
Que nao conheci.

E te apresento a meus sonhos,
E te guardo nas entranhas,
Numa dor de nunca ter,
Na certeza de perder.
