Poetic Art

Poetry sings in my being
when you get to the path of letters
and I discover that my words
they have always been yours, so yours,
that I’m surprised I wrote them.

Poetry sings in my being
when I hear your voice
and I discover that your words
they have always been mine, so mine,
that I’m surprised you are the one who shows them.

The World Of Narcissus

There is no starlight that can caress your sky.
Fireflies do not even know their gardens.

If, by chance, you will pass thereby, you will have to wear appearances,
without moving away from the path against the light.

Don’t open your eyes.
Any kind of glow is dangerous. –
Every movement must be thought about
and submitted to the ballet,
from any breath a storm may arise.

Do not talk
only the ghost of Eco speaks there. –
And, if you come to the source of the myth,
get away immediately from her,
the game of mirages is always deadly

State Of Mind Panorama

She never returns to your land of demons.

Walk alone for the deserts of your soul
dragging your dying shadow
and the words dressed in silence.

She never returns to your land of demons.

In vain you brake your delusions
your flight does not increase under the weight of the sand
and under shreds of rotten promises.

She never returns to your land of demons.
