Craving

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

The night now dances close
In its nocturnal dance dreams
Like a dark leaved evening rose
With thorns of yesterdays deems
I watch the shadows shift
In to my thoughts I yearn for
And back again to dim drift
To become nothing once more

My heart is beating loneliness
And echoing through its sound
Feelings to turn out to be less
Until they are nowhere found
So much is though hidden inside
In place of the outlying deep
That ruined my wishes or tied
Until their thoughts they sweep

Now abandoned I do crave
For something that's there still
And through the missing pave
To try to find again and fulfill
I watch the shadows dance
In a fluttering beaming light
Weaving the moment's instance
Through time and missing night

..Is that a wall, or is it just so well blended with the ground that the whole thing looks like a wall? REALLY COOL.

This is so lovely.

Caroline looks almost as if she could fade into the background. If it wasn't for her bright red hair and blue shirt I think would have passed over her and wouldn't have stopped to give her a second thought. [This looks like the same outfit as in Pencil Vs Camera 57]

I like how I get this feeling that Caroline is looking to a warmer place [and not necessarily directly at the warmer brown color]. - She is stuck [or maybe just resting] in this cooler place looking at the warmer region that she wants to be in [or getting to].

Very beautiful poem, by the way, Ben. It matches my feelings of this equally beautiful picture.
