sometimes you know
which direction you go
sometimes you don’t even know
where you actually are
and what you actually feel
just stumbling around
in a fog of illusions
bumping into other people
standing in the same fog
but holding a torch
to see more clearly
their way
out of this diffusing day
full of confusing thoughts
and contradicting feelings

to love someone
requires a heart
and not an agreement
with your mind
when your heart
and your mind
walk into different directions
you only create confusion
for yourself and also
for the one who loves you
but it means to loose this person
who you like
but not deeply love
once and for all
because love with mind
and heart bloomed
on the other side
but not on yours

Canova’s kissing couple

The sun was shining
when we kissed
and it was raining
when we had to depart.
People smiled at us
when we deeply hugged us
in this museum
full of Italian masters.
We were there
like a sculpture
of a kissing couple
that Canova never did.
They let us be
when the museum was closed and
we loved us the whole night long
and Hayez, Caravaggio, Tintoretto and Rubens
painted our naked bodies.
