House With no Door - Life for Sale


There's a house with no door and I'm living there


at nights it gets so cold and the days are hard to bear inside.


There's a house with no roof, so the rain creeps in,


falling through my head as I try to think out time

I don't know you, you say you know me, there's so much that I am unsure of ...


There's a house with no bell, but then nobody calls;


I sometimes find it hard to tell if any are alive at all outside...



There's a house with no sound; yes, it's quiet there, there's not much point in words if there's no-one to share in time.




I've learned my lines, I am ready to tell whoever will finally come in


 
There's a house with no door


and there's no living there: one day it became a wall well I didn't really care at the time.


There's a house with no light,


all the windows are sealed,


overtaxed and strained NOW NOTHING IS REVEALED BUT TIME









There's a house with no door and I'm living there

at nights it gets so cold
and the days are hard to bear inside.
There's a house with no roof, so the rain creeps in,
falling through my head as I try to think out time.
I don't know you, you say you know me,
that may be so,
there's so much that I am unsure of ...
You call my name, but it sounds unreal,
I forget how I feel, my body's rejecting the cure.

I've learned my lines, I know them so well,
I am ready to tell
whoever will finally come in
Of the line in my mind that's cold in the night,
it doesn't seem right
when there's that little dark figure running ...
There's a house with no door
and there's no living there:
one day it became a wall ...
well I didn't really care at the time.

Won't somebody help me ......?

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful, beautiful series. I would live there..........

Traveling Hawk said...

E o serie excelenta dar azi sunt intr-o dispozitie proasta asa ca, tare as vrea sa vad o data si antiteza...am recunoscute si cele doua poze din Timisoara, inaintea usii si a geamului, inverzite.

Tina´s PicStory said...

Cred că Micul Trianon a rămas cel mai bine conservat în filmul lui Sergiu Nicolaescu...

Elin said...

Dorian Susan said...

I can't even express how much I love this post. The images are wonderful and filled with emotion both sad and radiant. The buildings, windows, and doors in their glory former and present. You've paired the lyric so well. Thank you for sharing.

Kate said...

Really stunning images! Love the intensity throughout the series. Wonderful! =)

geanina said...

Windsmoke. said...

Bonza photos, i especially like the face in the 13th photo :-).

fly said...

multzumesc mult... la fel

Leovi said...

Delightful collection of doors each more poetic. A series approaches as a book of poems, wonderful!

Fram Actual said...

This is a magnificent series, Daliana. Of that, there is no doubt.

There are a million adjectives I could use to praise these photographs, and, many of them I have written here in the past, but the one thing I do want to emphasize at this moment in time is that many of them rise above mere "pictures" and enter the realm of art.

I know everyone must earn their daily bread, but I think all your time (well, most of it) should be devoted to producing books.

Genie said...

What a touching and poignant series. It hits all the way to the soul. So sad yet beautiful in their own way. I wonder about the ghosts who have been left behind. This is awesome photography...a special treat for tired eyes tonight. I have had to look through them twice they are so beautiful. genie

Marias Teater said...

Dear Wind, what an extra ordinary series you show to a hous-lover. Big hugs to you, you are really giving everything of your selv.

Costea said...

De unele nu a mai rămas nici măcar praful.
Dacă ar fi să schimb puţin titlul unui film s-ar numi: Prin cenuşa Bucureştiului.

Elisa said...

An excellent serie!
Bravo!
Greetings
Elisa, in Argentina

A Garden of Threads said...

DebC said...

Well, your shots are pure art!
Have a nice day!

frumoasa serie...draguta tema :)

Light and Voices said...

You certainly aren't a "stuck" photographer. You have an "eye" for images. Excellent job!

pandhora said...

foarte interesante ipostazele in care ai surprins tipuri atat de diferite de cladiri...
parca am zarit si Micul Trianon de la Floresti...
cel mai mult imi place usa cu un singur geam in zidul cenusiu si floarea rosie...atat de vie...

Zora said...

" I sometimes find it hard to tell if any are alive at all outside... "
e foarte faina. despre cateva am o curiozitate, care ar putea parea un pic rautacioasa, dar nu este - o fotografie cu o creatie ( graffiti in cazul de fata) e valoroasa pentru ca ea sau pentru ca acea creatie pe care o infatiseaza?

Jaymi said...

Wow I love these pictures! This is really great street photography!

James said...

Greetings from California!

T. Becque said...

T@PoppyPlacePdx said...

Really amazing :)

Truly powerful images :)

Such a mixture that you would never find here in the Pacific Northwest.

Thanks for sharing, :) T.

Rick said...

You captured a lot of character. No stainless steel and soul-less architecture for you !

Evidence of man's handiwork slowly conceding to nature.

Very nicely done !

Carole M. said...

such interesting photographs and commentary you added (coming from PhotoArtFriday)

ShonEjai said...

Beautiful series of photos! I am amazed by you creative use of perspective and composition. Well done!

laurak@forestwalkart said...

so many doors...each revealing something different...as to what might be on the other side.

beautiful series of photos and words...

Siddhartha Joshi said...

Truly brilliant! I loved the lyrics as well as the images which go so well with it.

The images manage to touch one's heart...or rather manages to break one's heart!

raya said...

wow amazing photos! love them all! and that poem is very fitting too! thanks for joining Wednesday Whites!

Bitch said...

Excellent Pictures
Good Creations

crayzys said...

The image stabs at the heart. Does life need walls to support us? Could you do a girl a favor? I need some literary walls to support me in times of insanity and chaos.

Let me know me the book you would choose IF YOU HAD ONLY ONE LAST BOOK TO READ? and enter it on my blog.

Hey if Laura, ForestWalkerArt, is following you, I know you have insight.

Rizalenio said...

Stunning masterpieces in ruins. A great way to look at the shattered side. Thanks for making this an interesting artwork, my idol.

Dragos said...

Frumos, imi place . Felicitari si multa bafta incontinuare:)
