Even If I Am In Love With You by KatMPhotography Even If I Am In Love With You by KatMPhotography
Even if I am in love with you
All this to say, what's it to you?
Observe the blood, the rose tattoo
Of the fingerprints on me from you

Other evidence has shown
That you and I are still alone
We skirt around the danger zone
And don't talk about it later

Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every soldier passing

But the only soldier now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing

Marlene on the wall

I walk to your house in the afternoon
By the butcher's shop with the sawdust strewn
"Don't give away the goods too soon"
Is what she might have told me

And I tried so hard to resist
When you held me in your handsome fist
And reminded me of the night we kissed
And of why I should be leaving

Marlene watches from the wall
Her mocking smile says it all
As the records the rise and fall
Of every man who's been here

But the only one here now is me
I'm fighting things I cannot see
I think it's called my destiny
That I am changing

Marlene on the wall



Inspiration: Suzanne Vega's "Marlene On The Wall"
Why: I always seem to be fighting something... conflict, there's always conflict - is nothing simple in this life??

Would I want it to be...?

Personally I prefer Solitude Standing ;)

Conflict is a natural part of life but it is never a good part of it although it may benefit personal growth. My own mind and soul are turbulent enough without trouble and strife from people. Some people thrive on such trouble, almost seems to give them a purpose in life which is quite sad. It ruins your soul...

Excelent shot :)

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger... as my Granny would say...

In love - I am not so sure...

Love and the soul tend to be far more vunerable and they need to be protected. Problem is if those changes come it confuses the rest of you...if that makes sense :s

i think this is the best pic of you - t seems to show some of a real you. Maybe a slight vulnerability or inner sadness.
Maybe I am reading too much into it, but that's what I see.
