Memories Make Me Cry [poetry]

  Time Warp Stuck in a loop Close my eyes and remember Your touch – how I want your strong hands Grabbing, squeezing, caressing me Once again Our tongues dancing together Entangled in a passionate kiss My body still responds to your words Even after all this time has passed Between us Both in other worlds now Far from each other But still close as ever in our thoughts And dreams It’s mesmerizing Distracting Throwing me off-balance Even when I just think of you How is this, still… Wrestling with…

Back Alley Blues [Tragic Beauty]

One of my all-time favorite photographers is the incredible Anton Corbijn. I’ve been a fan of his work since the 1980’s. He’s well-known for photographing musicians such as U2, Joy Division, Henry Rollins, Nirvana, Depeche Mode (my favorite!), as well as directing some of their music videos. Anton’s talent is amazing! He’s also been a big influence on my work, and this shoot below is in essence paying homage to his work. The man featured in the photos that follow is a good friend of mine. BJ sang for a few of the…
