Playing with Fire
by Valkyrie of Mercy

It's playing with fire
This motion we face
Where motion stands still
And stillness keeps pace
Where love is pure hate
And hate breathes with love
Where she isn't here
And I am the dove

It's playing with fire
This moment I hold
With your arms around me
The ice isn't cold
And fire is frozen
And your heart I hold

It's playing with fire
Deep under my skin
Where you are not her's
And it's your heart I'm in
And I am just here
And you're just there
And our hands are touching
With such tender care

It's playing with fire
As your fingers still trace
Every move of my jaw
Every line of my face

It's playing with fire
This deep-seated sin
This passion we hire
This fire in our skin

For most of my film works, I've also put up a new gallery on Leica User Group HERE

    Mi piace l'atmosfera creata sia dalla posa e sia dalla luce calda della fiamma :-)

    A masterwork portrait. The finesse is in the controlling of the white balance indeed!
