poetry by j matthew waters

a volte la vedo

My poem entitled “somtimes I see her” translated into Italian & recited by Loredana Donovan

c’è questa bellezza
dentro di te
che esiste in segreto
dietro l’artificialità
delle tue abitudini quotidiane

questa bellezza dentro di te
parla con me
nei miei sogni viventi
mi permette di capire
è soffocata sotto
la tua pelle colorata

questa bellezza che è tua
muore per farsi notare
e così tu continui
a graffiare la superficie
sperando di trovarla

  1. I love it! This poem speaks to me and it just flows beautifully in Italian. It’s perfect for a romance language because it’s so emotive and introspective. Thank you again, John. It’s been so much fun working on this with you! Grazie 🙂

  2. This was one of my favourite poems already. Now, it takes on a new side. So lovely, especially the second verse.

  3. Love it…good work by both of you.
