PHOTO POEM: THE DARK ABYSS OF LOVE

photo-story

It’s dark and completely calm

It’s aura so intense, it deafens you

The love in the air choking

It’ll feel like minutes

But it’s been days

 

It keeps you still with this steady vibration

Feels so close yet so far away

Wait. Listen. You hear it?

It’s music.

It’s deliberate but hesitant

 

The French Overhand strokes

It’s tightly wound hair burns slowly

So raw, So harsh and yet romantic

The music is so sincere

It’s tempo, So revealing.

 

This is where they found themselves

Closely knotted in harmony

She wears her feelings like a veil

and with every note

He unveils her soul

 

She is his music

He is her muse

They are at peace in this place

This love like a punji

Pulls them deep into it
