you are water to my life (cose di corso)

Sonetto (ehm) shakespeariano.
Cotto e mangiato a lezione, in un quarto d’ora.

You are water to my life, I need so much
to feed my soul with freshness and delight
I love the way your stream flows like a touch
that comes and gives life to my inner light.

I can perceive your presence and your sound
as if you were a music or a sign
that’s blasting in the silence all around
I sink in you and lay down in your line.

But every single time I think of you
the thought that strikes me with astonishment
is that you are a dream that can come true:
to touch a burning fire and feel refreshment.

As water does indeed, you put off fire
And as a fire you burn me with desire.
