lay down on the leaves

are you driving back home.
no expects
of a crash going down on the road.
all the scene in slow motion

If you’re dating
someone new
and you find out
people can get worst
than you ever thought they would.
people killing for devotion.


fall from the stairs,
caught by tornados,
have a heart attack,
poisioned by burritos.


drown in the sea,
burned in your house,
stabbed on a fight,
attacked by gorillas.


while you’re walking
all alone.
you look up and
the sun is shinning up and above.
sparrows bringing the summer.


touched by the wind,
have a warm kiss,
a lick of icecream,
lay down on the leaves.

frederico reis e tiago novo
