Choking on Passion
written by: Aurora Kastanias
Deferral an insidious skulking mortal
born out of apathy where tenacity is held.
Creeps through nerves leaving trails
of poisonous narcotics, pulls on the strings
of a fragile brain.
Feeds on grit in lethargy
mind desperately seeks to awake,
contaminates ambitions by turning
desires into dreams.
Finds it death by chocking
On gulps of great passions and resolve.
While studying for my BA in Business Administration, at an American University in Rome, I further got enchanted by 19th century existential authors as well as European ‘absurdism’ and the Theatre of the Absurd.
It was only after my MBA that I started writing more seriously, giving space to my true passions. In recent years I have written two existential novels in Italian. In recent months I have started studing astrophysics and writing poems in english, which finally brings me here.
