Rubicon

She sends me photographs
She writes on the back
The date and a short description

I send her paper hearts
And orphan thoughts
The world never paid attention

We danced to a tune we didn’t know
With eyes like a prophecy and I
Could never have seen the way we’d go
But I would have danced it anyway

She tells me she never wants to leave
I promise to take her by my side
Regardless of things we couldn’t see
I would have danced it anyway

We separate a place
Where we can be safe
Away from our own devices

We went too far to turn
With little concern
For all of these strange surprised

We danced to a tune we didn’t know
With eyes like a prophecy and I
Could never have seen the way we’d go
But I would have danced it anyway

She tells me she never wants to leave
I promise to take her by my side
Regardless of things we couldn’t see
I would have danced it anyway

  1. This is totally wonderful and I would have danced, too 🙂 I also love what you’ve done with the photo, I like black and white and it’s just a look that is very super!! You are a superstar, Ms. VW 🙂

  2. this photo seems so familiar… like its me…..very odd feeling I have when looking at it. It’s like an old photo I used to have of myself that I lost, but i’m sure someone else has the image now.

    • Hmmmm…mysterious
      I have not seen the person in this image for a long time, and do not know if they yet hold me in remembrance but perhaps you would know…

      In any case, my images are wishes and spells, whispered and spoke into an endless void from which no sound seems to be heard. Yet still I give because I wish it to be so. Because I still love

      • I still love too that is for sure….

        even if this is a photo from the past that I lost…quite intrigueing still none the less.

        Beautiful reconstuction

  3. Sweet abandon.

    “I would have danced it anyway” My favourite line. Each time it recurred I fell in love with it all over again. A truly wonderful line. I would probably not have resisted the temptation to use it as the title. But I think not doing so is actually a good decision.
