Hey all, this is my try at poetry! I decided to write this one originally in Italian because that's the language in which it spoke to me most. I'll add a translation under it. Hopefully it will do the original justice.

"Ragazzo che dorme,
testa sul petto,
Drogato.
Da mille sogni
ed aspirazioni:
un cervello affollato.
In cui i pensieri
lo perseguitano
come i cani da caccia.
Di notte.

~

"Sleeping youth,
head on his breast,
Druggèd.
By one-thousand dreams
and desires:
A mind enflamèd.
In which his thoughts
hound him
like dogs of prey.
By night."
