Unforgettable - Poem by Gianfranco Aurilio

you are
as every moment
spent together,
intense moments
summer storm,
eyes that talk
miming hugs,
stop, Time,
and let Love
last a life,
tight tight
steeped in pleasure
moans, quivers,
the heart leaps.
you are
nor could I
forget you
and may the day not come
nor the night
without you
desert otherwise,
far away from you,
hands that cling
to the void of nothing,
just for a while with you
nettle tears
that burn the skin
in the impotent memories,
never again with you
chanting the Unforgettable
among lines of verses
that seek
in the crevices of memory
useless reliefs.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dear readers, the original poem is in Italian and even in my language its words and its construction sound unusual. You may imagine the great difficulty I had in translating it into English. Please, accept my translation as an effort to overcome the barriers of the language, because literature must not have frontiers.

    Thank you very much, Liza. I would like to add the original version to the poems I publish but there a few sites and groups where this is not possible and it would be confusing for me remembering which and which. However, here you can find the original poems: http: // Best regards.
