Nightingale - Federica Galetto

I am

I am like a stone under your tongue

I am the bride's veil
and the drop of salt into an ocean

I am an empty jug and the lost water
your arm and your wrist in a land of sounds

I am the hole you have filled
and the coat that you need

marble
wool
gold and soul

I am the descent you walk right through
And the desert you’ll obey

I am everything
And now I am gone

(ghost in your mind)
(I am)

Federica Galetto (born 1964) Italy
