This is about those nights, which we all have from time to time, when sadness seems ubearable and then something or someone happens to make it all okay...



Night Salvage      

Broken ferris wheel sits idle

lost hearts trapped in air

music plays death song

mournful to the ear

ravens ask a question

where is she tonight

screen glows blank and empty

translucent kind of light

clouds sort out alignment

revealing longing justified

smiling glass revealing

love will not be denied…

We can get so hooked into and on our screens that it is indeed strange to have to turn them off and realise we are in our own solitude of space within only a certain familiar set of four walls. I know I have to check behind my laptop sometimes to make sure the world isn't in micro-format hiding behind it! :)) Makes me ponder the nature of relationships both on and off-screen because sometimes it IS so much easier to hang out with and in cyber community than with those in real life who just shatter the dream. I think all us Romantics have this kind of sensation in common, Felix; we have big hearts that heave and sigh with longing - yet it also takes little to make us smile and be glad. Love your image of the lost hearts trapped on the broken-down ferris wheel - very striking and poignant. xx

"When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me"... (lyrics from 'Stand by Me')
