    interesting metaphor of a candle that burns at both ends.. it doesn't last for long, but this way it's twice as brightly than a normal one.. (Report) Reply

    in ITALIAN:

    Primo Fico

    La mia candela brucia da entrambi i lati;
    Non durerà oltre la notte;
    Ma vi dirò, miei nemici, e anche a voi, amici miei—
    Dona una bella luce.
