Dear reader,

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and read my poems: this really means a lot to me. I would like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Anastasia and I am a twenty-two-year-old tourism management student based in Milan. I have both Kazakh and Italian origins, and I speak fluent Italian, Russian and English. The idea of creating and managing a blog has been my dream for a very long time, however, I had difficulty being constant, ending up in a vicious cycle of creating and deleting a dozen of websites.
This time, I believe, it will be different: I discovered my passion for poetry. Writing poems is what makes me feel free and lighthearted the most. Verses come to me in an unpredictable and spontaneous way. When I write, I completely abandon myself to the flow of adjectives and metaphors in my mind. As a result, my poems do not stick to one particular theme, language, or format: I enjoy experimenting.
After much thought, I finally decided to create this blog, where I will share my inspirations, experiences, and existential crises in verses, both in English and Italian. From here, the website title: living in verses. I am looking forward to seeing what role this platform is going to play in my life and my growth, both as a writer and as a person.

Hoping to cross paths again in the future, I must leave now, in order to chase down my next muse.
