Love is....

"Twins" by Unravelling

I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair

Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,
because in that moment you'll have gone so far

I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?

You made my eyes sting. I just love poetry.

Love the poetry and I love pink. I absolutely love the stairs in the Jeffers design. I love everything he does. In fact, I've copied a rug he did for a showhouse last year for my dining room.

Your examples here are great inspiration. BTW, I think Traditional Home has come a long way. I featured a Dallas home on my blog from a 2008 issue...it is far from traditional. Really enjoy your blog!
