The Ending Memories of a Deep Dark Place and a Beautiful Heaven (Turning the Page – Recovery Remix 2011)

The City series….

A deep dark place a beautiful heaven to lose yourself forever

small towns…

big cities

where hopeless dreams



when the carnival is over


we are lost at sea

the magic escapes us

and the years are gone

small towns

big cities…

where the dreams

we shared

in the deep dark place


beautiful heaven


just moments

now forgotten

    Beautiful words, how true. Life must not be wasted, we really don’t know how much of it is there in future. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great art.

  2. Thanks Nandini, the struggles we must go through at times in order to see the sun rise on a new liberated day is what strengthens us.

    • The cities are a place of discovery and wonder; sometimes that discovery is dark as well.
