And the infinite tenderness shattered you like a jar.”

I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”


“Love is so short, forgetting is so long.”

we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.”

I shall stop loving you little by little.”

I want to make a long journey.”

towards mine, love,
what do they bring me in flight?
Why did they stop
at my lips, so suddenly,
why do I know them,
as if once before,
I have touched them,
as if, before being,
they travelled
my forehead, my waist?”


“Suddenly I think I can make out your nails, Oblong, quick, nieces of a cherry: Then it’s your hair that passes by, and I think I see your image, a bonfire, burning in the water.”


“I no longer love her, that’s certain, but how I loved her.”


“My struggle is harsh and I come back
with eyes tired
at times from having seen
the unchanging earth,
but when your laughter enters
it rises to the sky seeking me
and it opens for me all
the doors of life.”

Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain.
I love you still among these cold things.
Sometimes my kisses go on those heavy vessels
that cross the sea towards no arrival.
I see myself forgotten like those old anchors.”


“Through nights like this one I held her in my arms. I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.”


“But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.”
