“one day, when tenderness has become the single rule of the morning,/ I will wake in your arms. perhaps your skin will be overly gorgeous./ and the light will include the impossible understanding of love.”
José Luís Peixoto, A Criança em Ruínas

“Sempre gostei de procurar livros, não quero saber onde estão, basta-me saber que existem.”
José Luís Peixoto, Livro

“Amor. Amor. Amor, gostava de dizer esta palavra até gastá-la ainda mais. Amor, gostava de dizer esta palavra até perder ainda mais o seu sentido. Amor. Amor. Amor, até ser uma palavra que não significa nem sequer uma ilusão, uma mentira. Amor, amor, amor, nem sequer uma mentira, nem sequer um sentimento vago e incompreensível. Amor amor amor, até ser nem sequer uma palavra banal, nem sequer a palavra mais vulgar, nem sequer uma palavra. Amoramoramor, até ao momento em que alguém diz amor e ninguém vira a cabeça para ouvir, alguém diz amor e ninguém ouve, alguém diz amor e não disse nada. Sozinho, diante da campa. O amor é a solidão.”
José Luís Peixoto, Uma Casa na Escuridão

“Memory is like a curse. We fall into eternity, and memory is a weight that keeps pulling us to where we can never go back to.”
José Luís Peixoto, Antídoto

“Beyond the clouds, above people, beneath the skin, inside people, we’re waiting for you. We see you now, as you read. We’ll see you when you stop thinking about these words. Above and inside your face, we know your secrets. We know what you hide from yourself. You can’t escape us. We hold your heart in the palm of our hand. If we like, we can squeeze it. If we like, we can crush it. There’s nothing you can do to stop us. Our gaze notices your every single move and your every single word. Say a word now. Make a move. We smile at your words, as we smile at your silence. No one will be able to protect you. No one can protect you now. You’re even less than you imagine. We’ve seen a thousand generations of men like you. It was our pleasure to let them walk on the lines of our hands. It was our pleasure to take everything away from them. We guided entire generations of men through tunnels we built that led nowhere. And when they arrived at nothing, we smiled. You’re just like them. We’re waiting for you above and inside your face. Continue on your way. Follow that line of our hand. We know where that tunnel you walk through will end. Keep on walking. We see you and smile. Beyond the clouds, we are fear. Beneath the skin, we are fear.”
José Luís Peixoto, Antídoto

“the poem doesn’t have stanzas, it has a body, the poem doesn’t have lines,/ it has blood, the poem is not written with letters, it’s written/ with grains of sand and kisses, petals and moments, shouts and/ uncertainties.”
José Luís Peixoto, A Criança em Ruínas

“one day, when tenderness has become the single rule of the morning,/ I will wake in your arms. perhaps your skin will be overly gorgeous./ and the light will include the impossible understanding of love.”
José Luís Peixoto, A Criança em Ruínas

Sílvia Costa Li todos os teus livros...e todos eles me fascinaram...mas há um que irá sempre ser o meu predilecto:"Uma casa na escuridão"...eu fiquei viciada, li o livro todo de uma vez e todos os meses volto a ler...é viciante!!!
E "Morreste-me"...esse livro toca-me muito porque passei pelo mesmo...e cada palavra parece que foi escrita por mim porque sinto tudo exactamente assim...

Parabéns e muito sucesso
