Gnossiennes

I forgot to
be myself, the day where we met
but I know you knew me
parce que t’as rien démandé.

I forgave myself
più tardi, più lontano dal caos
che mi avvolgeva
and you, you forgave me
all but my protections.

In your projections I am
lost e lascio andare, passo
dopo passo, tutto quel posso.

In your ideals I am
lost mais je retrouve le sens
de mon existence
dans ta inébranlable espérance.

Non siam mai nudi, on dance.

This piece was inspired by an artwork by my husband, Federico Faraci, titled after the famous piano compositions by Satie.
