What remains of madness!

Why my life
you are so warrior
to such an extent that then on the way
your every thought will be
a decisive step into the truth
and in your words tomorrow
a strong wind will blow
always alive and out of touch
it will never change direction
and will sail against the current.
But how much stronger it will be
what remains of madness
in and in the blood
the more they will be
the answers
that will be born
in my skin
in the silence of the flesh
and in the heart
in the tides of human life.

On the ledge of life

How many knots
i will melt
from your flesh
my star
before the roses
on the ledge of life.
And how many times
this rebellious breath
it will bind you
to my words and verses
even in the presence of the wind
will find out vehemently
your beauty eternal love.

You are sea!

You are sea
In the morning
and in the evening.
In you I see
the blue expanses
sound reflections
of the waves
and backdrops
abysses and oceans
never violated.
You are sea
The blondes
your hair
they get confused
with ours
and the shores
of our ports
ancient shelters
some greens
You are sea
Oh yes!
that overwhelms me
with his
moved waves
and the moons
the tides
and the seagulls.
Are you a woman
and you are sea
you are alone
moon and stars
you are the reflection
of my tomorrow
and the foam
won by the wind
and in you pose
the thought
never dormant
endlessly wrecked
in sunken caves
of our senses
always on
pushed and cradled
from the currents
never tired
of our hearts
already corsairs
and illegal pirates
of the oceans
and immense.
You are sea!


I am
to ours
between kisses
and you sigh
of the passions
turned on
in the fluffy
of loves
that satiate
then they smile
to life
at the rides
to the follies
in silence
hold on
to memories
to the reasons
by flavor
and sweet
some hugs
and emotions
to ours

The sea of memories

Here in my thoughts
I find suspended moments
untied ties
old friendships
you fly happy true moments.
In my eyes they are lost
the light trails
of our lived days
smiling people
faces serene happy sincere.
Smiles and certainties
through the streets of the infinite sky
sailed the sea of memories
gifted joys sailed
hearts immersed in silence.
Now I look at the time gone by
I see my certainties
shields of light and love
with your hugs
promises of love given.
O laughing life quivering shiver
join your wounds to lonely hearts
you pulled the thorns from the picked roses
you gave harmony ardor and warmth
loves that lived so much feeling
passions of melted honey fed
anxiously dreaming of the beloved routes
like silent boats for safe seas
they landed in the free creeks
anchoring bodies wrapped in red veins.

For you

I read for you
precious canvases
embroidered from
in the eternal.
I walked
together with you
by possible ways
of ours
I wanted for you
serene castles
satiated lives
different worlds.
I played for you
festive bells
of the heart
of love.
I gave for you
sincere eyes
clear mirrors
of the stars
bright flames.
