Merely brushed

Our glances

churned in us

slush in a rush

icy enough to blush

Many rounds


can’t get out

The chill of our glances

merely brushed

I went to Venice two years ago and I felt that I just brushed through the city without much time to think. I’m using this picture to convey the same kind of haste felt between strangers meeting multiple times but never having the opportunity to start talking albeit being curious about one another.

  1. I liked this very much. I also liked the picture. Venice was one of those places that I had felt I had already been to, it felt so familiar. I wandered the streets like a native, even though I have only been there once, and only for one weekend. Weird, but Magical.


      1. I mean to go back one day too. We did visit the old byzantine church on the Island of Torcello, but that took almost the whole day to get to. It is just nice wandering around venice. Don’t have a coffee or a meal near the main square though, RIP OFF.
