Wash me clean

Molly sitting on the floor in the shower. Wash me clean

“You swim
swim through my veins
drown me
in your reign
My desire
carries no shame
my will
will harbour no pain
wash me clean
mend my wounded seams
cleanse my tarnished dreams
drink from my spell
love’s drying well
wash me clean
mend my wounded seams
cleanse my tarnished dreams”

I had a visceral reaction to this shot. It feels stark and angsty. Maybe the angle emphasized the “down” – exhaustion, depression, ennui… I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s there, and it’s somatic.

There’s something in this shot that makes me want to put my arms around you and comfort you. It’s brilliant in the way it calls up emotion, but also how my eye keeps on going back to your arms over your head.

Relateable words attached to heart pulling image . I’ve been in this position, I’ve felt those words and all I wanna do is put my arms around you, give you and tell you all will be OK x

It’s a very beautiful image

I’m struggling to find words to adequately express my reaction to this incredible image.

I think many of us have been there.

Wow, so powerful. It takes my words away and that doesn’t happen often!

Cara Thereon May 7, 2017 - 1:29 pm

My gosh. This reaches down deep. Almost like peeking in on something so personal. Beautiful

As soon as I saw this I felt so emotional and wanted to reach my arms out and just hold you. There are just no words to say how wonderful this image is!

Captured the image in the song, Molly. ‘swim through my veins’… what an interesting thought.

Lovely image, and a really good song. The image is beautiful. And also very emotionally dark.

Another shot this week I had to leave until later to comment. Stayed with me so long. Beautiful framing, it really tells a story Molly. You’re a master of that… an amazing photo.
I can feel myself trying to quietly creep away before you realise I’d witnessed your private moment.

An amazing image that conjures such emotion. Wonderful xx

O you clever lady!
So many people before me have made comment to its sadness both image and words. I too don’t like the sad feeling it draws out of me but it’s such a great angle.

What a powerful photo. It would be great anyway, but those words add a completely new layer of narrative. It’s amazing how the quotes/words that get used do that. Xx

Strong image and deep words….so raw : bravo Molly, very powerful !! x
