Lágrimas rolavam seu rosto,
mas ele não chorava.
De cara seca, e alma frágil,
o pseudo choro contra a angústia verdadeira.
Seu rosto era marcado pela aflição,
mas ainda assim sorria de si mesmo.
Digo, só ria de si mesmo,
num riso debochado e provocante,
de quem está triste o suficiente pra morrer
mas não o suficiente para chorar.
E as lágrimas contidas involuntariamente
se avolumavam na garganta,
impedindo-o de respirar.
E nessa asma de tristeza seca.
Só restava o desespero.
De quem precisa correr.
Mas ainda não aprendeu a andar.
do you ever see an opinion that’s so terrible that you actually feel bad for that person’s brain
i bet in 2000 years theyre gonna be digging up the rubble of our destroyed earth and they’ll find a nokia still on half battery
I’m constantly torn between the ‘be kind to everyone’ and the ‘fuck everyone you owe them nothing’ mentalities
When someone speaks of you negatively, be flattered. To be in someone’s mind is to have power over them. Revel in the fact that they subconsciously reserve thoughts and energy for you.
This is gold.
