self-portrait for the reader

I took a picture of myself
the way I would with you
with soft reflected light
and hidden kindness

I took a picture of myself
I did it in darkness
when my place was all silent
and even ghosts had left

I took a picture of myself
the way I do with friends
trying an embrace
praying for warmth to show up

I took a picture of myself
as a report of loss
a declaration of defeat
an admission of guiltiness

I took a picture
I took a chance on truth
while I was looking for you
longing for closeness

As a surrender
as a commitment
as a warm welcome
I took my portrait

  • Ciao Laura,
    per me sei stata una scoperta davvero meravigliosa che sempre mi ricorda com’e’ bello amare il mio aeroporto personale…anche quando semrba difficilissimo e impossibile:)
    Forse e’ la seconda volta che te lo scrivo, ma e’ sempre stupefacente trovare in te, in sintesi, ogni sensazione che vivo ultimamente.
    Sei fonte di ispirazione per la mia fotografia e la mia ricerca personale. Sei fonte di Amore.
    “La pena da cui gridi
    ti conduce all’unione
    La tua pura tristezza
    che vuole aiuto
    e’ la coppa segreta” Rumi

  • grazie, LL
