But some part of you knows, the truth about the words you cannot say is that they only hurt until you say them. They only hurt until the person who needs to hear them, hears them. Because we are human, and the closest we’ve ever come to showing each other who we really are, and how we love, is with words.
So I’m going to try to say to you here, what I wish you’d say to me too. Please.
Listen. We can change things.
Mostly, it is the rather unfortunate chronicle of a man's attempt to write the book he’s promised his publisher, no matter the cost to his sanity.
"I need you to understand something. I wrote this for you. I wrote this for you and only you. Everyone else who reads it, doesn't get it."
From Iain S. Thomas, the creator of I Wrote This For You, and artist Carla Kreuser comes a collection of 300 things they truly and sincerely hope for you: from wishing you always have a pen, to hoping you're never lonely, and everything in-between.
Readers are saying "love this poet", "love this book" and "five stars"!
This collection of inspiring prose and illustrations will move you, and remind you of what's important in life as you live it. Or, that's what they hope.
Because you are all I see.
Because you are all I breathe.
Because when I cannot find you, I am lost.
Because when I’m with you, I am found.
Because you have the fire of the universe in you, and sometimes you forget.
So this book is here to remind you.
I want you to know that I see you.
I want you to know that even if no one else does, even if you are a ghost in this bookshop, or just the static floating across the screen of your computer, wherever you’re reading this, I see you.
I see you in the dark and I see you in the grey. I see you as a story, as words I have spoken or may yet speak. Maybe only in a memory or a dream.
I see your hands and your arms and your body and your legs and your face and I see what you have been and what you will be. I see you and in looking at you, I want you to know that whoever you’ve had to be to survive all this, I will not look away.
I want you to know that there’s a space inside this book for you.
So if you have the time and the inclination, you can sit here with me, just for a while.
And perhaps between us, we can see everything that matters.
Before you were born, you had a conversation. You spoke about everything you were afraid of and everything that might happen. And the person you spoke to, reassured you. And gave you peace. And told you that it was going to be ok.And if you forgot, you can read this book, and maybe some small part of you will remember.
Started in 2007, I Wrote This For You is an internationally acclaimed exploration of hauntingly beautiful words, photography and emotion that's unique to each person that reads it.
Escrevi isso pra você é uma coletânea de poemas contemporâneos sobre os diversos momentos do amor: a paixão e o encantamento dos primeiros tempos, o lento afastamento, a solidão a dois, a dor do fim e a esperança de novos começos.
Reunindo cerca de 200 textos divididos em quatro partes – Sol, Lua, Estrelas, Chuva –, o poeta sul-africano Iain S. Thomas combina palavras profundas e intensas com fotografias frias e impessoais. O resultado é um livro que provoca uma explosão de sentimentos perturbadores e conflitantes, mas totalmente familiares a qualquer pessoa que já tenha amado e sofrido pelo menos uma vez.
Conhecido nas redes sociais pelo pseudônimo pleasefindthis, o autor começou sua trajetória na internet, publicando poemas e fotos em seu blog pessoal. Com o tempo, seu trabalho ganhou repercussão, se transformou em livro e encantou milhares de leitores ao redor do mundo.
Com extrema delicadeza, Escrevi isso pra você expõe a natureza frágil das relações humanas e as nuances líricas e obscuras do amor.
Você sempre me diz que foi bom enquanto durou. Que as chamas mais intensas são as que queimam mais rápido.
Ou seja, você via em nós uma vela. E eu via em nós o sol.
(A estrela esquecida)
