The Love That Doesn't Exist


It is impossible to silence the mind with all the thoughts that seek in vain for a new word to define those who confuse love with hate,

more criminal than war,

violent attack on the person they say they love

coming to kill the "fruit" of what they unjustly call love.


How can all this happen?

It is natural to wonder if it hadn't been loving what would have happened beyond the senseless cruelty expressed?

Innocent victims loved ones.


Many men have no sincere behavior,

from the beginning to say that a woman is not enough for him but more

so that every woman would make her choice according to her own values and principles.


But then who has the right to decide on a woman's life? Who can establish that a life must not come to light?


It's easy to blame the family,

to the school,

to society if we all know that today the human soul has become so wicked that we no longer have to fear the enemy

but who lives next door.


There are no words to console such an immense pain of Giulia's mother and of the whole family but also of all of Italy which gathers around the immeasurable suffering effects of an absurd form of loving.



If I Were


If I were a woman, I would only give credit to the heart of a child who innocently offers and gives pure love.

I looked over my shoulder and would protect my face from tears streaked with deep wounds like arid furrows where unheard seeds of Peace beg for mercy in vain.


If I were a woman, I would choose a guardian angel to always be by my side,

to watch over sinners who pierce with swords

and flaming spears the aching heart

who keeps the secret.

She unjustly suffers verbal violence and if I were a woman a million times, I would think of accepting her false declarations by dirtying her mouth with the deceitful way of repeating that "I love you" which, fruitlessly, resounds in the air, receiving a sound of words that say it all the expression of hatred he possesses like honey between his lips to deceive the woman who could be his mother, there is no woman of equal good.


If I were a woman, I would need to recognize the loyalty to fight with equal weapons even with the most miserable and scoundrel crowned by falsehood and two-faced who crawls and gets up to shout the offenses with foul language and nonsense that even the Good Lord would find it hard to forgive and ask for reinforcements from Holy Mercy,

to compassionate mercy to try to redeem a man of sin.


All this if I were a woman and yet the dilemma is right there,

I’m a woman,

a real woman who fights alone every day against the giant who has poison on his tongue and spits hatred by striking to make his prey perish.

I've seen hardened men who don't even believe themselves to be malevolent perpetrators and don't even consider asking for forgiveness, other types I hear,

they are so good at mistaking hate for love and they sell themselves by passing themselves off in society as good by flaunting a Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jekyll way of acting. Better stay away.

Such a pity!

What awful world do we live in?

There is no longer any semblance of human.


"Don't Ask Permission, The Wings Are Yours, And The Sky Is Nobody's."

The Wings Are Yours.


In the sky with the wings of freedom

colorful fantasy feathers

beyond reality to the limits of madness

to find the lost serenity.


Flying in that infinite space

of a stopped hourglass time

confirm how much I love you and have loved you

accepting the invitation again


to live in a place owned by no one

where only those who love have free access

who knows sincere feeling

do not subterfuge or betrayed someone.


Flying without asking permission

multiply the descents among the stars

paragliding magic of lights on

great is being together now


we absolute masters of the universe

beloved, beloved by the moon and the sun

have reserved a place on the clouds

on Earth by now love has been lost.
