You took me dancing by the harbour
after snow fell the night, covering
sand and sea in white for an instant
mist in my eyes, as we twirled
towards dizziness held
by the heated pressure of your right
hand posed on my back
the seat of my emotions pressed
against your chest, blind
to others the cold
breeze a scorching ray,
hitting violently on pins and needles
skin an awkward sensation,
confusing ice for fire,
strikes for strokes,
your attention for love.
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.
