If I had been an unconnected man,
I from this moment, should have formed some plan
Never to leave sweet Venice…
Percy Byshhe Shelley
I cannot hide the fact that I am a hopeless romantic and considering the fact I have had the luck to visit the “city of past loves”, the city of romance, of supreme love, I can admit that I have fell in love with the mistery I could have found everywhere, with the people dressed in carniaval costumes, with their italian accent.. I fell in love with Venice!
The adventurous “walk” with the gondole lasted 30 mins.
30 minutes away from everything, 30 minutes full of mistery, for 30 minutes I have been one of them, for 30 minutes I have lived my movie, infinite 30 minutes
That was the perfect day I was dreaming of. I am sure I will go back. And I will have more hours, days, weeks and I will fall in love again with Venice. Until then, I have the beautiful memories, the pictures and the missing part.
And so I stopped
at the foot of the bridge.
And so you stopped too
a step up.
I did not know that it was a goodbye.
I knew a moment later
feeling your lips touch mine.
It was the first, it was the last time.
Just like that.
