Adrift



 

Close your eyes, my love, for the winds will blow and the waves will bring you back to my arms.


They say that true love never dies. I say true love is simply human. It breathes, it feeds, it sleeps, it grows and sometimes even fades away. It may return, to stay indefinitely, and many times it says good bye but lingers on for a lifetime. You can reach out but cannot truly grasp it and often push it away just to feel it clinging tight to your heart.

 So for now, I will embrace you, true love. I will hold you and shower you with all the best that I have. But please remember that my heart is true and that it bears no shield, for I am only human just as you are.

  24. It's somehow desperate and calm at the same time! There's dramatism in the drawing, softened by the colours! A very strong impact!

  33. Well how did I miss this one? Glad I found it - very sinuous and alive and dreamlike. Words are so silly when you are trying to describe your reaction to an artwork...
