A tightness in the chest,
A heart awkwardly,
A dark future,
A cold and hard ground.
A confused thinking,
A destination aimlessly,
A cold wind in the soul,
An inexplicable sweat on the palms.
A fear without reason,
A man and his distress,
An uncertain look,
A desert road.
A strange feeling,
A taste rancid,
A day that does not end,
A wait that discourages.
A love that did not come,
An ugly painted moment,
A lily that was not born,
An anguished goodbye.

P.S. This poem is the English edition of the original written in Portuguese. I did my best to translate it and still bring some of the beauty of the Portuguese version, but somehow it doesn´t sound as good. Please, forgive my limitation.
