Tenderness - Poem by Fabrizio Frosini

Yearning for tenderness.
The one lost —It's so long -so long
Since..

The light delves deep in the watery
Unconsciousness of an unnatural essence,
Just to find nothing.

Longing for what went missing at some point
Somewhere, in the long journey, is a beguiling
Dead end.

Come what may,
Pushed from pillar to post —Worn by
The wrinkles on the forehead ]
Without destination,

Loneliness
Regrets what's gone lost,
Keeping its scent forever.





(Florence,2014)

    a nostalgic, beautiful poem. a question: is '''its scent '' in the last line referred to tenderness? (Report) Reply

    Fabrizio Frosini Fabrizio Frosini (5/31/2017 1:02:00 PM)

    yes, it is, you're right

    A very moving poem to me. We want tenderness in our lives but
    sometimes there is nothing. The phrases ' pushed from pillar to post'
    and 'wrinkles on the forehead' stand out like beacons.

    Longing for what went missing at some point
    Somewhere, in the long journey, is a beguiling
    Dead end.

    Come what may,
    Pushed from pillar to post —Worn by
    The wrinkles on the forehead ]
    Without destination,
    - - - - - - It is really a tender feeling expressed so nicely.There is an ever longing desire to hold on to those tender feelings.It lives in memories.
