Often my photos inspire me to write poetry.... Poem and photo inspiration.


It consumes you totally
A giant chasm with only darkness
A rusted door never to open
A light at the end of the tunnel masked by barbed wire
A stairway leading to nowhere
A desert with no oasis
A longing which can never be fulfilled
Sea in turmoil with no land in sight
Sand in a timer forever being turned

There is no escape
Explaining is futile
Getting understanding never comes
You have been judged
Unfairly, constantly
Waiting but no answer
Expecting but never getting
Hoping but always in vain
Chasing but never catching
Ravaged by disappointment!
