Upon Your Request

Your request to draw you
Your longing to pencil you in
Perhaps become immortalized
By none other than my foolish self,
Was quite daunting.
How could I make you better?
When your words
were so defining and enderearing.
How could I sketch you seemingly better?
A girl perhaps was your request.
Your words were already lovely
Feminine like.
As if your comely words weren’t
inviting enough.
Signaling
for my attention.
You, yourself was
perfect enough.
Instead of a drawing I let
nature exemplify
Your beauty
Your words
Your kindness.
My submission
was my attempt
to attract your
fluttering self.
But to my dismay
You stung my heart
I must be a masochist
to try to capture yours.
Tell me, in what sense
would you allow me to exist?
Could I physically exist
alongside you?
Not just in your thoughts?

#‎fotografia‬: 1000 PORTRAITS FROM SUDAN

Ideato da Ahmad Aladdin, “1000 Portraits From Sudan” è un progetto fotografico che celebra in modo artistico la diversità etnica (e religiosa) del Sudan.

Le fotografie, perlopiù ritratti di strada, ritraggono donne e uomini nella loro quotidianità; e i loro volti raccontano il presente di una nazione melting-pot, le cui radici affondano nell'incontro tra cultura africana ed araba.
