'Tell me what's inside your heart,' you wrote, so I went hunting for the key to that neglected vault: repository of old hurts, old loves, old lives, old dreams, perfect hiding place for guilt and fault.
Reservoir of secret hopes, ofttimes flooded o'erfull by streams of tears: enough to float all happiness away, stranded, drifting in a sea of years.
Hunt I did, in every dusty nook, looked high and low in all the chambers of my weary soul: each sealed room, each spiraled stair, each twisting endless hall, that damnably elusive key my goal.
One dim map, one battered candle frail, nothing breaking clumsy fall, a flight: so steep a drop, but in that darkness lay, so long abandoned, my heart's key, once bright.
Take the key, unlock my fragile heart, together we'll discover what has long been sleeping there: revealing each layer, lying close upon another, tightly packed, no room to move, no air.
Out pours passion, out pours pain, out pours need, pain's brother in arms: an overwhelming gush of bitter juice, which only Love can heal with its charms. 1997, renewed 2012 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
