Sonnet III

The best partners are hard to find,
As the ones I dream of nightly,
With crooked smiles acting politely,
Only exist in the depths of my mind.
Reality would have me leave behind
These figures with swords and psyche,
Fighting over me so knightly,
And it makes me feel so consigned.

To give up these flights of fancy,
Which I never feel inclined to do,
On the grounds I love my insanity,
Make me want to up the ante
And see if this dream is true,
As surely it’s better than reality.

(Italian, 2016)
