Dancing The Line

by Agostino Scafidi

Thanks for all the lies,
Once you open the door of doubt,
Everything comes into question,
And motives multiply like fruit flies.

Have you tried,
To dance between truth and lies?

The expanse between is grey and murky,
Easy to lose anchor,
Sometimes you never set anchor again,
But drift,
Forever.



Potential

by Agostino Scafidi

The usual suspects,
Rehashing old things because they make you feel alive.
Unrequited,
Some strange satisfaction in that.

Striving to manifest,
The effort,
The chase,
A very personal and private kind of fun.

Dreamers dream,
Without limits,
Or borders,
A slippery slope.



Oases

by Agostino Scafidi

We meet again,
Arch enemies,
Old friends,
Neutral parties.

Times may call for you,
To let go of all three,
For sanity,
Prosperity.

Don't fret the lonely path,
Even the loneliest find company in the strangest of places.

Perspective can turn the most desolate landscape,
Into the most beautiful desert varnish.



Unpredictable

by Agostino Scafidi

New friends,
Some good,
Others not so much,
Hard to tell without the key.

Time,
It reveals all,
How fast?
How slow?

Caution,
Pace,
Fear?
Openness?

Choose wisely,
There are prices to pay,
Outcomes hazy.


Biography
Agostino Scafidi was born and raised in Montreal, Canada of Sicilian
descent. His artistic journey stemmed from childhood, dabbling on a nylon
stringed guitar and writing stories. He began seriously pursuing music with
dedication, determination and devotion in 1998. His first experiences were
with rock bands, eventually gravitating towards solo work within the realms
of electronic music. These contrasting arenas of creative application
existed in tandem until 2008, where he would then focus on solo efforts
and at the same time reconnect with his love for the written word.
Roughly two years after that new direction change would he lean
exclusively towards writing, producing no new music. His practice of the
guitar continued regardless, as a personal, private pursuit. In 2015,
Agostino Scafidi reignited and united his love for music and writing,
embarking on his path once again. Refreshed and inspired.
