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)
