Artist's Description

I Listen to the Rain a poem by RestLeSsD

If wishes were granted
For one single smile
I’d wish to hold you close
For just a little while.

If kisses were given
Just for love’s sake.
My heart would be yours,
It would no longer ache.

If wrapped in your arms
Was where I belonged
Then that’s where I’d be,
Having never been wronged.

But that’s just daydreaming
Nothing’s as it is seeming.
Our love has left fleeting
My heart has stopped beating.

My days no longer matter
The nights are endless pain.
I sit in darkened shadows
And I listen to the rain.

Original images used:

Digital Manipulation_: Images combined in PSCS2 using blending modes on layers including a DAP layer..
All photographs are my own except as noted.
1. The window photo is from an old cotton plantation in Louisiana, USA.
2. The beach photo is taken in Oceanside, CA.
3. The model is Ashlin.
The idea for the poem comes from the song (above) & the facial expressions on the models face. (tears added).
