© f3nix, 2018 - "Soli senz'alcun Dio Teucri ed Achei così restaro a battagliar" (Iliade - Libro VI)

Abbraccio untuoso e salmastro d'incombenti forme. Guerrieri stipati, scherniti al pensier della brezza che lieve là fuori blandisce la schiuma del mare. Presto, ghermite dita di rosa il respiro dell'ultima oscurità. Prima che tutto inizi e insieme finisca, sigillo abbagliante di questo dolore.

L'attesa, nemico strisciante, si mesce al troppo sentire. Cintura di giochi crudeli, emozioni racchiuse in silenzio si stringono al ventre guerresco avanti dell'ultimo scontro. Speranza, ardore, gloria, paura. Quarantun torri attendono, fatte ondeggianti budella, intestini lor stessi del dono fatale. Là dove nemmeno gli Dei più bisbigliano.

Mai canterà l'aèdo di infiniti attimi a soffocare i demoni del sè. Nè il rapsòdo celebrerà agli agiati la battaglia immensa e dimenticata, a precedere le gesta già consegnate all'eterno. E il fato già si tesse lento dentro il sacro ligneo animale, stringendo con filo d'acciaio le vite di eroi all'arazzo del divenire.

Qui dal profondo, il pensier mio vola lontano. Qui io rinasco. Risorgi mio Amore spazzato dal tempo. Conficco per l'ultima volta gli artigli sozzi nel palmo. Sgorgando in silenzio lacrime rosse a invocare alla mente il tuo viso che sfuma impietoso, mangiato dal tempo. Amore, io torno. Ad altri la Gloria, balsamo di inganno. Oh Dei, solo il tuo bacio ancora io anelo e cingere a me il calore d'un figlio che, grande ormai, più non saprà di suo padre, Odisseo.

Greasy, brackish embrace of looming shapes. Crammed warriors, mocked by the cool breeze that gently caresses the shoreline. Soon the pink fingers of the dawn will seize the breath of this last darkness. Before everything starts and everything ends, eternal seal of this pain.

Silently the waiting mashes the depths of too much feeling. Belt of cruel games, emotions contained in a crawling promise of last clash. Hope, ardor, glory, fear. Forty-one human towers await, swaying in the gut of the fatal gift, where not even the Gods whisper to them anymore.

No bard will ever sing of these eternal moments. Never a poet will celebrate the immense and forgotten battle, the one that precedes the great deeds, where the fate already weaves slowly inside the sacred animal, tightening with steel wire the lives of heroes to a tapestry of eternal glory.

My thoughts surge and fly far from here. Here I am reborn. My Love swept by time, it's time to resurrect when I'll stab this pal with dirty claws once more. Silently gushing red tears flow at the thought of your face that fades merciless, eaten by time. Love, I return to the light of your embrace. I'll let Glory to others, balm of deception. Oh Gods, prize me with her kiss and the hug of a son who, adult by now, no longer will know about his father, Odysseus.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JUST WOWWWWWWWW!

sorry it's all I have..........

I'm so happy that you enjoyed it my dear friend.. thank you always for your sustain!! ☺️

Wow f3nix, this is wonderful. It sounds like you had some really good pasta! 😉

Actually it's been the most akward genesis of a freewrite...it was meant to be stupid, go figure! I'm grateful Omra for your sustain to my stuff, a true thank you 👍👍👍

Thank you for your appreciation and delivery! Just published it now :-))

Your descriptions of the taut grip of anticipation before the coming battle, from the lovely fingers of the dawn , the belt, and the steel wire closing in, cutting in, caught and held me. Then the breaking free of the grasp, not caring for having empty glory, just the thoughts of beautiful love...simply fantastic F3nix! tip!

Now I make you laugh: this was originally meant to be a NSFW story talking about all this sweaty warriors inside the belly of the Trojan Horse with a lot of time to spend together and nothing to do.. other than..well...that. You know, in the ancient greek times they were quite open minded (look at some representations on ancient vases for instance) :-PpP Thank you for the tippy tip cara!

There is a lot of depth and emotion here. Well done!

Thank you @steemkeepers, probably because I identify myself due to my recent family situation..

You never cease to amaze me with the mastery of your writing. Your thoughts draw me into entirely deep world's and you leave me asking for more. Thank you for sharing your poetry with us!

It's my joy Janelle 😉 Thank you for your constant support! I have to say that in Italian it is way way better. Actually I'm sure you would have made it become a masterpiece with your fine English.. my aim here was to write an Italian prose/poetry. The other part is just for involving my American friends ☺️

Well, even though you know it lost Something in translation, I fully enjoyed the English version. I only wish I could understand the Italian version!

Man oh Man! Wow...wow...wow! There are no words to describe your thoughts and talent. I do know that you made me feel and I almost cried at the end. I am just sitting here, shaking my head in wonder and I am speechless. The only thing I have left to say is Tip!

What can I say dearest...I'm so happy that I could give you such a feeling. This is something rewarding and precious. The only thing I have left to say is ..thank you and I'm happy to have met someone like you here @whatisnew :-))

You are so sweet and you know I feel the same way about you. Hugs! : )

Ti sei fatto molto aulico, questa volta! Indubbiamente scritto in modo magistrale, anche se da rileggere almeno due volte per coglierne tutte le sfumature. O, forse, sono io ad essere troppo stanco di mente per coglierle alla prima lettura.
Comunque, sembra proprio di leggere un brano omerico perduto, tradotto da Rosa Calzecchi Onesti in italiano degli anni '50.

Propenderei per il troppo stanco ma grazie!! Non so se sapevi qual'era il soggetto iniziale (leggi il commento a @brisby) 😂

Lo sapevo, anzi me lo pregustavo ;)
Pazienza, hai scelto la strada della serietà, stavolta, ma so che Pornazzus è lì che preme da qualche parte sul tuo cervello azatothiano ;)

How do you do that! I must of read too much porn when I was younger. Great #freewrite. 😋

Lol ..look around and the inspiration is everywhere, you just need to look, listen and smell well :-P
