breathe: this is beautiful and yet somewhat melancholy... it reminds me of a song that i really like by The Cure called "Pictures of You"... i guess this idea hits me so hard because i am so far away from my lover... sometimes all i have are pictures... i think you do a magnificent job here of first arousing the sensual and then giving rise to the sorrowful (though perhaps sorrowful only for those who, like me, have some experience with this)...
jerome the boy with no brain
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
