Walking on my shoes

Andamos por caminhos desconhecidos. Curvas, retas e ladeiras que não sabemos onde terminam ou aonde nos levam. Ela iria embora naquele dia. Na noite anterior nenhum dos dois conseguiu dormir. Tudo o que existia era a angústia dos minutos que se passavam para separação deles.
A medida que subiam aquele caminho, a cada passo dado sabiam que levava a um lugar sem volta. Ambos sabiam. Lá na frente a curva se aproximava e depois dela, o portão de embarque.
- Não consigo... - Ele falou logo antes da curva. - Não consigo ir além daqui.
- Eu entendo... - Ela disse. - Eu também não consigo, mas no meu caso, tenho que continuar.
Ele ficou parado enquanto ela subia, realizando o contorno da curva. Ela não olhava para trás. Melhor assim, pois os olhos dele choravam compulsivamente. E já quando seu corpo estava subitamente prestes a desaparecer naquela curva, ela virou-se para olhá-lo pelo que ela sabia que seria a última vez, e disse:
- Até logo!

Um "Até logo" que na verdade significava "Adeus"...

We walk through unknown paths. Curves, lines and slopes that we don't know where will lead us or where they finish. She was about to go away that day. The night before none of both could sleep. All that existed was the anguish of the passing minutes to their apart.
While they were going up that path, in every step they knew that would haven't a turning back. Both knew it. Forward the curve was coming closer and after the boarding gate.
- I can't... - He told her just before the curve. - I can't go beyond here.
- I understand... - She told him. - I cant' too, but in my case, I must go.
He stood there while she walked up, following the curve line. She didn't look back. Better this way, because his eyes was compulsively crying. And when her body was just closer to disappear on that curve, she turned back to look him for the moment that she knew that was the last, and said:
- See you!

A "See You" that in fact meant a "GoodBye"...

  2. They say that if you go far enough you will eventually reach the place you started at. We are going in a perpetual circle.
