I want to…

I want to see

the people I love,

to hug them without gloves,

and devour the world

with my beloved.

I want to smile with

my mouth uncovered,

without feeling smothered.

I want to take the hand of my lover,

to feel that I hover,

forgetting the suffer,

and to go out on the street

detaching myself

from my bed cover.

I want the night

with its old attributions,

that in the air

dance the illusion,

disappearing the reclusion.

I want the world

to trust again and

turn without spreading pain.
