Frozen in that moment
seems my time stood still
but, everything was falling apart
it fell, where everything begins.
Life and death combine
in the one and only ring, eternally.
The sun rise every morning
nothing had changed
but its light is slipping away from me.
I look at to the moon
there, is the little girl that once I was
and you are still holding my hand.
The night become
the only time that the sorrow goes away
the Dark embrace me silently
the stars become my tears
I don't have to explain why I feel lost
He never asks questions
who are those faceless strangers around me?

I always felt I belong to the night
my heart is a costant winter storm
but I am unable to freeze the time
unable to dry the tears
which accompany all my fears.

Take my hand beloved Fallen Angel
take me away from this cold
take me at your side
let me be your bride.

Embrace me with your dark wings
let me feel why you have fallen
what you have lost, for what we call love.

My love, you whispered
I've always lived my life through  your dreams
to deny the untold misery
the wicked game of the memory.

I know I can run
I know how to hide
I saw you on the other side
but I can't fly with broken wings.

I am no longer a self published author.
Yes, I have just signed a contract with the italian publisher Lettere Animate, which will publish both my novels:


Il Demone dello specchio - Orpheus saga vol.2-

under their wings. So, both my books have been removed from kobo, Amazon and Lulu.

Have a good weekend you all...mine will be surely good although I am still in the mood " Is this really true?"

Spring greetings to all of you!!!

There are days in which I wonder
where is the deadline
between Hope and Delusion.
The veil between is so thin
is difficult to see
when one stops
and the other begins.

I look furtively at you
Trying to shut down the beat of my heart
too loud on my ears.
I wonder if you can feel my eyes on you....
and your eyes met mine for a moment
You are still beautiful
although time have left its mark
around your eyes too.
I turn my head away.
I would like to talk to you
come near and ask ”don't you remember me?”
but I am shy
or is it the fear for the answer?
So, I just look at you silently
sipping my coffee
when you are unaware.
You smile and talk with others.
My soul shatters in front of that smile
reminding me
I still bleed for you
from those my beloved scars
which I have never wanted to be healed.
My heart, now out of control
my breath shortened
and all what you see
is maybe a woman
that look too proud
while my soul screams I love you.
I have built this mask for so many years
and yet
I would like to die with you any night
under the jealous moon.
I wish you could see me through...
At that thought a teardrop fall
but you didn't see it
I have ran away before my mask fell in pieces.

Elvis Presley Unchained Melody with never seen before intro and in t...

Remembering you the day of your birth and envying the angels. Love you forever.


Forgetting is in vain
memories will be not washed away by the rain
or buried by the sand of time.
Counting the ciphers of tears I've spread
is hard to know
that each one
is a dream I left behind or forget.
I've burned to ashes and reborn thousands of times
the fire marked my soul
and my heart ablaze
with the only letter I never regret.
We are what we are
we can't be otherwise
our soul in entwined
but our worlds set us apart.

Is pointless to try to find excuses
and lock away all memories
fooling myself that all those open scars
finally will stop bleeding
all the questions
finally will get the right answers
and close this circle
which is still full of crackles.
The fire have sealed my soul to yours
and it burns
every time our universes collide
giving me an illusion
that I still believe to be real.
The waiting became agony
and the hope is killing me every time
I keep it high
but nothing goes the way I wanted to go.
And you are moving far away
in those dreams that once were happy and vivid
and now
I look at you unable to reach you
unable to hold you
The fire will always burn
and the rain will be always wet
I cannot ignore anymore the pain
but I can't let you go either
becoming myself
my own executioner.
