You held me once.......
as if that very moment would be our last....
as if I would dissolve if you let me go
as if there were nothing else
and no other time in the world
as if there were no world
and no distinction between
you and me
you holding me
until I'm full of you..........
once..... you excited feelings beyond
any words I might have found
to describe them
once... you couldn't bear to be parted from me
....until the moment you left
but my love, in all that time
never.... once ....did you walk with me
and hold my hand
as if it were to be forever
never.... once.... did you talk to me
of growing old
of a future
than the moments
when we were one........

Nicely captured the daily life moments. Good medium you choose.

An ad? Fragments Kev, fragments :PPP
Very good veteran story in this one.
Maybe he doesn't get naked and hug her from behind any more, and maybe she lost the volume of her boobs, yet they are still hand in hand. This is the essence of eternal love.
Ah, thanks god, i am not into this eternal hand-to-hand mood yet :))

a good thing...i do remember that i have something close to this in my files...fascinating lightness of this scene...
interesting that so many people are going here in different directions and who predominates? or what predominates? passion and love - above the crowd...

Amazing street situation. Fine photo in B&W. Smart note.

I like the humor in your title ... nicely captured. There seems to be a generation gap on how couples express intimacy ... the old more subtle while the young are more open and expressive as suggested in the poster. Well presented ... good work! tfs

Two great postings in a day. Yes, something I'm wondering about myself as well. How will the affection change over time? Well, at my age perhaps the question that stands before this one; How to cherish and prolong affection as it is. Quite honestly, I wouldn't know. But I hope to walk hand in hand when I reached that age.

Its a beautiful concept, Kev, to catch the "Once" twice with the sensuous motif, the older man walking into it, as it were. Would have worked probably better without the foreground women--a bit distracting,

i was browsing and came across your fine snapshot taken at the most perfect time of the day. The B/W format is outstanding and the light is perfect. I don't think you could better the quality or the sharpness, they are just outstanding. It's a superb capture,with the depth of field to be impressive.Well done.
I wish you Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year,Danos

Do you remeber the bus stop poster (Istanbul) and the blah...blah.. about it ???
Well...Completely opposite side of a spectrum...
There IS a reason in there to include the poster this time...
The author of the poster himself should (most probably) shake your hand for your cleverness in adapting his work into his...
Makes your day more cherishable...

really think that we must love intensely,with passion,...about time,well,how time is relative,don't believe in that 'forever'.believe in something gradually,but..anyway love don't have grades of comparison.the moments are differents;)
smart image,life around with those different moments that just told you..;)
all the best for the year 2008!
