  • and I still remember vividly. I discovered how blue your eyes are under the shower as well as your playful spirit: you handed me a towel with Aladdin and Jasmin on a flying rug and told me about how your mum will comment in the smaller then slight belly you developed. You gave me phone numbers and told me about the flamingos in the hidden garden and how it's the best to take pictures in the Cimitero Monumentale around 5. You wore a striped shirt I don't see in your drawers any more and kissed me on the escalator and before disappearing in the bus to the airport.
    I thought this was it, but I was grateful and happy for an honest encounter with someone so sweet and light, like the sunshine streaming down on me as I crossed the square in front of the Centrale, with a spring in my steps and the wind playing with my downy black silk dress.
    I thought it was beautiful even if I never see you again and embraced the blazing sky of Milan, so similar to your eyes. Later, sitting on the old bone white top of the Dome, I discovered you had left small bruises on my tights, the colour of almost ripe blackberries and I smiled to myself silently.

    And here we are, two years later and my love for you is sill pale blue and shining and bonewhite and the colour of almost ripe blackberries.
