• Under the Sake Tree…

    Head on your shoulder
    Exhaustion in my heart
    Silence spilled from my lips
    As I sat besides you under the sake tree

    Just 18 years old
    In a place I had never been
    In a space that was unfamiliar
    A broken heart on the mend
    From the one who said he loved me, then sailed across the sea
    And the one who kissed me on the golf course
    Lifting me from loneliness
    Then, drove away
    Leaving me to face judgment, alone

    Then there you were
    Your eyes told me you cared deeply
    Yet you never took anything from me
    You built me up
    From all the broken pieces
    And, never crossed the line

    Because of you
    I learned I could be loved and not abandoned.
    It was beautiful, and confusing, and exactly what I needed

    And as you moved on
    I told you “if you’re not married by 30, marry me”
    It was my all of my heart
    It was more than a simple “I love you too”

    Always and forever
    Under the sake tree

  • Crash Atterrando…

    To miss you, Is confusing
    Wanting your happiness, Knowing I am the cost
    A madness, A strength
    A sadness, A longing
    To find you
    I can only reach within me
    Knowing not your hand
    Knowing not your heart
    But, in knowing mine

  • Il Prezzo dell’onestà…

    The sun he gave me faded with silence and indifference. Never once did he leave me with hope that I flowed through his veins. Never once have I had peace in me, since the day he asked me not to say the words…

  • Un Giorno Con Te…

    With each dawn I shall wake 
    But, I will not let my mind wander to you 
    Even as another Spring passes 
    And the seasons tell a tale of how once upon a time you found me 
    I will keep waking 
    And, with each day 
    My name will be more distant from your tongue 
    So your temper may fade away 
    Between sunrise and sunset 
    I will reach for all the reasons why I travelled this far
    To see I am in not in your thoughts
    And, in the silence of each morning 
    I will hear that my name is not a lyric in the song you sing...
  • Tutte Le Cose Svaniscono…

    Confess to the wind
    Let it carry your words far
    Feel deserved peace
    Allow air to fill your lungs with the love you have within
    Let your burden fade away...
  • 1318…

    Give yourself grace and kindness.

    Find joy in the place where the love in you lives, even when you know it alone.

    Forgive the ones that failed you, because they lost more than just you.

    And, never regret the reasons why your heart has a rhythm… dance all of your years to it.

  • Tu…

    Though your lips never caressed the nape of my neck...
              Your hands never touched the curve of my waist...
        Your arms never gave me warmth...
    And, though your words were never spent on me...
    It was your eyes that failed to see, everything you had in me

  • Banale, ma Vero…

    Why do my eyes lie to me?
    Why is hope the only thing I see? 
    Do my eyes see things not there?
    Images, moments we never shared
    Why do I see something more in you?
    Why isn’t there a clearer view?
    Why do I see something more than you can see?
    Is that the reason you find fault in me?
    Maybe my eyes didn’t lie
    Perhaps the reason why my heart still cries?
    Nevertheless, I know your eyes have failed to see
    Everything that you had in me
  • Ammissione…

    Living in silence
    I can hear the deafening truth
    I genuinely lost my way
    Looking to find something in your eyes
    My heart animated unreality
    My desire…
    Nothing but greed
    Always answering your call…
    My fidelity to you
    Leaving you in the past
    It’s so very hard
    Believing I love you…
    Is even harder
    Convincing myself it was wrong
    Is a bridge too far
    The truth flows through my veins
    And, the truth is all I have


  • Io Spiego…

    My heart beat tells me my truth…
    I live a melody that sings of you
