I lean against the door, feel the rough wood under my hands, against my ear – I listen.

Breathing – deep and soft – a muttering that says the sleep is not peaceful.

I sigh – My Monster, my Devil. Soon I’ll return, break the chains that bind you and then … I will feed them all to you.

      1. These things (we perceive) are like Rorschach I guess! That’s what makes the photos such great stimulus. I’m getting very stuck for ideas past the end of this week I’m worried to say.

      2. Yes, like staring into the clouds and seeing elephants or dinosaurs – our brains make familiar pictures out of randomness wherever we look. Hope inspiration strikes soon 🙂
