My Poems: Le fasi di una relazione

Az összes versem megtalálhatod a "My Poems" oldalon, ahol nyelv szerint színekkel el vannak választva! You can find all of my poems on the page of the same name, where they are color coordinated based on the language they were written in. Puoi trovare le mie poesie sulla pagina "My Poems" dove sono colorate in base alla lingua nella quale le ho scritte.

The following poem is my reply to all those countless literature classes in high school consisting of "finding the deeper meaning of the poem", when all we actually did is being told that it is about death. End of argument. And your argument is invalid. I learned a lot from that! 

This poem is not about love
Don't look for a deeper meaning.
This poem is not about pain
Don't look for a deeper meaning.
This poem is not about sorrow
Don't look for a deeper meaning.
This poem is not about death
Don't look for a deeper meaning.

This poem could be about a monkey,
ghosts, puppies, or pineapples that are funky.
You can write without
mentioning the passage of lives
"we'll eventually die" is something you can leave out;
no need for brief pauses and long sighs.

But they'll dissect it,
the future generations will talk of every beat,
give it a meaning it doesn't have;
And if you'd still be living, it would drive you mad!

Le fasi di una relazione

Negare
di amare.
Tremare
e baciare.
Parlare.
Ingannare
poi negare
di imbrogliare.
Lasciare
passare
e tagliare
il dolore.
