Today i’ll crawl out of bed
I can’t stand your shadow is too heavy to lift
Maybe we’ll go for a ride
You said you’d take me nowhere
I said that suits me just fine
I know you’ve always been near
Whispering secrets i know i’m not supposed to hear
Hold your heart with two hands
Give it to me only to disappear
Look how low i’ve sunk
Don’t ask me to rise
I’ll only lose you when i’m high
All alone in the dark
Love survives only when we are apart
Your voice still sounds in my ears
Soft explosions that blossom with the beat of my heart

Twas a bedraggled day, i had just emerged from the pool, sodden, no make up, eyes red from the pool poison

    Yeah, you did it again.. totally WOW’d me dude! This is so damn good. The muted tones are the perfect setting for the depth of your eyes in this shot. I take ‘rise’ to be an emerging from a darker and lonelier place, into some place else, where you have more clarity. It’s the look of someone whose eyes have just been opened to a new reality. (That’s how I am perceiving this one anyway). I’m rambling, but in a word: Incredible! :)

  • Ah Andrew! Thanks so much mate!!! wow! you got it spot on!!! you know me too well! haha! Perfect comment, yeah!!!! Your insight is muchly appreciated! You’re almost awesome! hahaha! just kidding! You are awesome!!! :)
