SINCE YOU WENT AWAY – SHU CH’I-SIANG

Since You Went Away

Since You Went Away

After you were gone

The moon came and shone

In the vacant window

I thought of you as a flower

Carried off by the wind

That went its way

And can never turn back

Shu Ch’i-Saing

The aching, erotic stillness of these ancient Chinese poems completely overpowers me, as they find their way into The Vampire’s Wife designs. Truly inspiring, as I draw away and dream. Love, Susie x
