Manjioca: Uma Brasilian Feminista…

“I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.” ~Audre Lorde~

I quit the night
with all its glitter in the sky,

i close my eyes and imagine that i see the night through your eyes,
feel the wind in your skin, and taste my lips through yours.

I quit the night and all its fantastical dreams,
just for the reality of being by your side,

i quit the night, in hopes for another morning,
a profound awakening.

But you have long since disappeared into the night,
where i am left retracing your past to build a future with you.

I am no dream, i am reality,
I am not a stanza from a poem,
I am the essence of poetry in this human experience..

will you journey with me into the night?
will you wake me up with your eyes in the morning?

…tomorrows night is almost here.
