JAEDE Street is a self-portrait taken from photographic artist Jaeda DeWalt’s The Enchanted series and is a part of the DeWalt Gallery collection.
She calls to me
I trying to remove the subconscious blanket of a dream
Running to catch this elusive creature – she
Before time dangles her out of reach
Playing on my addiction to her
She toys with me a bit
Before inviting me in
But indeed I step in . . . I step in
Of food and sleep – I am deprived
They gladly stepping aside
As I offer myself to her
Yet again . . .
Pain of withdrawals almost too much to bear
Then I feel it going in
As she slowly enters my veins
Bliss seeping through my entire being
Reality fading to black
As her universe slowly into focus – comes
I-slipping into illusion
Admiring how it fits me like a glove
Her world melding with mine
As time ceases ability to define
I partake of her until I can no longer drink
We becoming one
Sweet feeling of complete surrender I embrace
Before the light of mundane reality
Does early dawn wake
Chasing my mistress . . . CREATION . . . away
