Anavitoria - Barquinho de Papel (English translation)

English translation

Paper Boat

When I leave you
I'll take a blank paper
Spread through every corner a paper boat
 
I know
That love is easy to drown
And if you have a boat
Bigger is the chance of saving yourself
 
But now
You left before me
Didn't even leave me a fragile boat
To save me from the shipwreck
That was giving you my heart
 
That's why I sing every poem as an ode to you
And I cut it into folds
Another paper boat
For me
 
I don't miss you
Don't miss your scent
Of imported perfume
That exported from me
I don't miss
Your rolled Rs
Nor your kisses
Teeth-tasted
That bites poisoned heart
I don't miss you
I don't
I don't even remember you
Nor your shivering breath
I do not miss it
I feel anxiety
Distance
Of your black-sign
Your silence-scream
Feel anxiety
And I provoke it
I shove my ten fingers
In my throat
To see if I can throw up your being
Of my soul
 
When I leave you
I'll take a blank paper
Spread through every corner a paper boat
 
I'm lost in a sea with waves made of you
And I paddle without a destiny this paper boat
 
But now
You left before me
Didn't even leave me a fragile boat
To save me from the shipwreck
That was giving you my heat
 
That's why I sing every poem as an ode to you
And I cut it into folds
Another paper boat
For us
