One day I was lucky enough to meet a person who opened my eyes about poetry and writing. Before meeting her, my idea of writing poems, and writing in general, were linked to simple aesthetic research. But I was not happy of that result, inside of me a inner voice was trying to tell me poetry was much more than that. Poems are a form of healing, a spell to sanctify the soul of the reader.
