Come back to me

March 16th, 2010 Comments off


All I could remember of you was a vague shadow,
Though for that one night you were my saviour.
Perhaps I was just another tick on your list,
But that night, we filled the void in our desires.
Each touch from you was not lost from memory,
It was as though you had not left my side;
as we stayed locked in that embrace
Come back, and save the stranded me…

If purity is primordial, humanity could be a punishment.
Pleading for peace is nothing but finger pointing the blame.
Take responsibility, open up to understand and move on!
Always aiming for the finale, but have we ever left from the start?

If we could only wake up and understand that what goes around, comes around.
If we could finally realise; make love, not war.

A stylistic study of the deviant youth cultures of the 1980s and 1990s. Counter cultures that run against the grain of conventional society, they confront the darker side of desire with their illicit use of drugs and alcohol, promiscuity and occasional violence. Balking at contemporary stereotypes of beauty then embodied in super models like Cindy Crawford and Claudier Schiffer, they worship androgyny, dark eye makeup, pale skin and equally unorthodox fashion.

Ophelia was a young, hopeless romantic; she was a fleeting presence in the love life of Hamlet. She loved him to no end, clinging to the memories of wild romance and the warmth of his skin. She made it her duty to love him, like no other woman could, and she would even face death to prove her longing adoration. Through her eyes, his insane love for her was irreplaceable. Her vulnerability and sacrifice stems from her heart.

It wasn’t long before she became no more than a scorned muse to men, called upon for the comforts of her luscious red lips and magnetising pale flesh. Her emotional innocence and quest for acceptance witnessed her escalating downfall: prostituted by her father, and abused and mocked by men for her sexual knowledge. She knew Death rescinded her humiliations. And Death is never judgmental.

She chose to drown – a baptism with the promise of renewal. In her flawless sheer dress worn with a timeless naivety, she submerged into the moment with grace and without struggle. Her lifeless body floated into oblivion as she left with the memories of being part of the greatest love she ever knew.
