When Love Comes

In the back of his head
A thought wants out

Escape artist crazy

Like love
Lashed and bound to a dated time machine

He said
We’d live forever
As I held him
Tightly in a dirty city dawn

He said, he said he loved me
And I fed on his words
Drinking him down

Bang Bang

In the back of his head
An inner sanctum thought
With ruffled feathers
Wants out

I just showed this to my house mate and got some very interesting feedback. I’d be very curious to hear your thoughts or interpretation – good, bad or indifferent. Thanks

    To better understand I had to read it few times.
    Very sensitive, many soft and strong and also warm feelings.
    Blessings to you ;)

    Thanks Marie, Miss A and SNik. Responses to my words is somehow more important than the images smetimes. There’s something more fundamental and real about writing in many ways. Thanks .)

    Yes…powerful emotion.
    I am taking more from it each time I read it over again. I love writing that is so open to interpretation, yet co clear and direct in some ways also.
    Very nicely balanced.
