You Resist by Flaminia Colella

Feb 15, 2019

Originally published as ‘Resisti’
Translated from the Italian by Stefano Paparo

You resist.
I hear it still
your heart
sobbing down
muted streets
in search of
an escape route.

I cannot leave you
to die like this
but also I cannot
leave you to live
like this.

With eyes full
of pleasure I’ve
always seen
you, but today
I see you fall apart
