Through The Nose

Poem By Paolo Ruffilli

I have seen you in a dream
running towards me
surprised and pleased
to have found me again,
and I was as happy
though I felt
that I was
persuaded by the deceit
and that the ecstasy
was especially my own.
And in the crystal
of my vision
through the nose
I have meanwhile
kissed you against a yellow wall
holding your perfume in my arms.
I woke up in a sweat
and throughout the day
I was filled with desire
and burning inside,
happy to remain
roasting in that oven.

Love

Thus, I suddenly
catch myself in the mirror
in a stifling embrace
while I project myself

Journey

I know what I have felt
again and again
and never has it been
something abstract

Tunnel

And all at once
deep in the tunnel
that goes on and on,
in the dead air

Whenever I Go

Then, at last
I get moving
notwithstanding
the urge to stay

Nowhere

How many times
have I left
before daybreak or
at dead of night

Desire

I think of myself
whose hand caresses
the willing body
lying open to any assault
