Old Pipes

A Sleepless Night

Old pipes creak and groan
almost as though a visitor is beyond the door
the lights of a passing car appear
against the blinds upon the window
holding almost for a second too long
tired the mind strays beyond all reason
into flights of fancy and mild fear
such thoughts linger, leave and return
warmth envelopes the body
making sweat run, damping hopes of sleep
beyond the duvet a cold chill waits
a duel between the two beckons
while the heart pounds against the chest
counting the unseen seconds
the mind alert making nonsense
footsteps, a cough, the wind
all noises play against reason
what lurks beyond the window
what awaits in the darkness of the street
what prevents this sleep
a thought created in tiredness
echoes late into the night

Além de as fotos serem muito boas, especialmente a última, fico intrigada com a utilidade destes tubos no meio da cidade.
Grande acabamento.

Out of curiousity,,, what is in those pipes? Looks pretty amazing. Haha, pink pipes (you edited this colour, right?) could really brighten up a city ;)) I love the composition in #2

Are these for centralized heating? Ours are so ugly -- they paint one color and whenever they run out, they start another; whatever is available -- and always ugly! Our gas pipes as well. At least yours are nicely painted!
