And I let my wandering steps take me

to the old house with the arched window

where you once lived among your paintings

and I stayed at the closed big iron door,

eyeing the glass panes of the one behind it,

the tiled corridor I used to walk on hurriedly

to find you waiting at its end with open arms.

I stayed for a while seeing again and again

our young selves eager for each other,

I remembered the dusky evenings of passion,

the deep talks about everything and nothing,

the silence of the house nurturing us both.

And I tore myself away from the house you left,

the house that once welcomed our climaxes

under the knowing eyes of your whimsical paintings.

Sad that you have this house in the past tense, no longer able to enjoy it fully in the present, hence, decreasing the enjoyment I would wish for all of your sense!!!

Well, the artist does not live there any longer. He lives in another town and has a new object of desire.

I like how you spin the focus of this piece with so much description, creating an atmosphere that 'houses' an emotion. Nostalgic and forlorn, I like how the structure is 'nurturing' this short lived relationship, a personified dwelling every bit as alive as the moment's memory.
