Looking Up

My posture is never looking up
by Holden Wolfe

I saw the tops of mountains and standing trees
in a place where you neglect peoples faces
the sky is just too loud
angry in grey shades
but soft enough to tell you your name

if only you kept the gun out of your dove hands and had folded them desperatly into mine
then maybe we could honestly say we loved eachother
but you pulled the trigger

and thus thoughts bled with doubts
tucked behind a border
where I never thought I'd return

I wish I could say I miss you
I wish I could say..

      É aquilo que muita gente não faz quando visita uma cidade. Olhar para cima. Ainda bem que tu não és assim :)

      Lofty buildings.
      Supercilious humans.
      Thoughts bleeding with doubts.
      Very meaningful post and full of beauty (even if the saddest one).

      I like the sequence. The flow tells its own story. Hightens my thirst for travel to see great imposing architecture as these!

      The angle in the shots is perfect. Great architecture. The sky in the first goes very well with the poem. Those words are very impressive and unsettling actually.

      Wonderful post! Nothing pleases me more than majestic architecture such as this. The angle improves the majesty of the buildings. And the equestrian rider! I am not sure who the king(?) is, and it doesn't look like it is in Portugal (D. Pedro II?). It also doesn't look like Louis XIV. Who is that?!? :-))
