“If you have never lost your sanity, then you have never been in love.”
This photo is lyrically inspired by the song ‘In Boxes by Aurora’, I’ve been wanting to do a photo to this song for a few years now. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen, it’s a bit twisted… I like twisted. 😉
Some of the lyrics:
“Here I am still lonely with the souvenirs
I would kill for some company
I did once have a lover only kept his hands
They can dance and play the songs for me
Play until I sleep”
What’s this image have to do with love? Well… I’m a fan of hands and the way they can make you feel. I’ve often told my husband that when he dies, or when I kill him… I’m keeping his hands. The man has magic fingers, but even aside from the many sexual pleasures they provide, they offer a sense of intimacy that I’ll never tire of, a closeness that even in silence can be felt with something as simple as putting his hand in mine. Sigh… (let me have my girl moment here). Hand holding is where it’s at! So much so that when I had my friend with benefits (when I was single), hand holding was on my list of no-no’s. It’s just too….intimate and caring, don’t care about me, just do me! Hee… I clearly have issues!
“Have you ever really held the hand of someone you love? Not just in passing, a loose link between you – but truly clasped, with the pulses of your wrists beating together and your fingers mapping the knuckles and nails like a cartographer learning a country by heart?”
― Jodi Picoult
On a lighter note, his hands belong to me, I’m keeping them…forever!
“Type hard, like you mean it!”
