Sweet Nothing – Poem

Inspired by my favourite word “Attraversiamo” -Comes from Italian and it means Let’s cross together (Or something like this). It is from the movie Eat,Pray, Love and since then it is the most beautiful word I have ever heard.

I cross the street

To avoid your body

I turn my head to the other side

To avoid your eyes.


A hole in my heart

Was made

When you decided

To hold someone else’s hand.


Empty bed

Empty days

Unspoken words

Forgotten promises were all that’s left.


Empty – Poetry

I open a new page

A blank one

I want to write

I put my fingers on the keypad

My eyes move around

My look, together with my mind and my heart are empty

I need to heal

I close my eyes and take my fingers away of the keypad

I take a sip of red wine and replay the song I have been listening to

Remembering the pain, remembering the aches

How will I heal?

My heart start racing and my legs want to move

I am steady

Sitting on the squeaky chair

I want to write

But my mind is blank

Like the blank page I opened

Like my life, starting from tomorrow

Because today I am empty

I will fill that page with words

And if tomorrow my life is blank

I will fill it up with adventures

And if my fingers don’t know how to write

I will make them

And if my legs want to move

I won’t be steady

Because there are many pages and all of them are blank

Because my life won’t end today

And all that is empty could be filled up.
