Fading away by gilad Fading away by gilad

The smell burnt into the pillow
The shirt I bought you from London
The note I wrote you on your birthday
The book I thought you would like
I was wrong

The picture of us stanched in the album
The toothbrush left near the sink
The ice cream with the flavor only I liked
The Billy Joel tickets I thought you would like
I was wrong

The movie we left in the middle
The song I sang you in that restaurant
The one joke that made you laugh every time
That marriage proposal I though you would like
I was wrong

The memory of us washed with the waves
The small meaningless love moment lost in time
The one thing we had we thought would never be lost
I thought you wouldn't let me fade away
I was wrong


Nothing much to add to the poem.
I hope "see it my way".

I absolutely love this picture! And I wanted to let you know that I used it in one of my blogs. I gave credit to you and also linked to your DeviantArt profile. If you would like a link to the blog so you can see for yourself, I can provide you with that. I just wanted you to be aware and it you would like, I can remove the picture.

Also, I just wanted to add again that I really LOVE this picture and the poem as well. Both are amazing!!

Would it be ok for you ?

I am Emanuel and I am also a Deviant art member that only a few months ago i decided to start share my art with others in the W.W.W. I usually use words to give images more importance, thing that i hardly manage to do with my photos ... but for a strange way is more easy with others' art. So .. this time after a small search, a typical for me work, i found this photo of yours and suddenly i had a small strike of inspiration to write something about that. For sure, as i beleive, the world, our world will be more important and interesting if we could share things and thoughts with others, for that reason i used your photo in my personal blog adding a small melody of a small music box that i believe that can give also soul to your photo too and translated for you in english, [link] , to give a literature soul to the colours ... Forgive my action but if you do not want me to use it, you have every right to advice me to remove it. I am going also to share the things i wrote for it with you too here. Hope that will be enough touchy to worth the imensity of feelings i felt after seeing it some hours ago and for expressing to you my compliments about your art.

I still think of you
and I cannot sleep
and I don't talk
All the hours that pass by
ask me how much I love you

I met many women, but what to say?
you are the light in the shadows

I still think of you
I am sorry you left
and I get depressed
God, if only
on the empty pillow
I could dream of you

I met many women,
but you are the only one
I will love for as long I shall live

Greetings from Ferrara-Italy.

Emanuel ...

The first time that I love you, the first time that I know you, the first time in your arms I am born and I die.

Stunning. Emotionally evocative. Absolutely perfect.

Hey Gilad! I am creating a small photography course for some people here. Would you mind if I use some of your pictures as examples for different effects? Such as Depth of focus using the picture above?

I think it would be very helpful for people to learn from examples of a great photographer!!
