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)

    Loneliness,
    The emptiness
    That hurts the most
    In this great poem
    Fully felt,
    Sad and silent,
    Like a ghost.

    So far and deep reaching,
    written feelings!
    Simply excellent and unforgettable!

    Hi, dear Sandra.
    You know, I feel a bit like a 'ghost'...and indeed I'm a ghost more and more, day after day...
    Un gran abrazo desde Italia
