The Docks of Hope by UntamedUnwanted The Docks of Hope by UntamedUnwanted
I sat on the docks for hours after I had clicked this. It was long before I knew K...and I recall saying to myself that something big, really big was going to happen. A change was going to come, the good kind.

Hope is a dangerous thing. It makes you wish and want and desire and love. It has always let me down in the past in such horrible ways. I would hope for kindness, love, understanding...and fail. And fail. And fail worse. So this time, I fought the feeling hard and long...but the docks, the view of the city...the idea of grabbing a boat and sailing away made me dare.

I dared to hope.

And hope delivered him to me.



(For K: I know you, you're just like me. You know me. I'm just like you too.)

It is not hope that is dangerous but it is hope from others. When you hope something from others there is the fear that they will not be able to fullfil your desire or perhaps fail or perhaps hurt you. When you hope over the result in your own actions there is little fear; either you will succeed or you will fail. If you succeed then all is well but if you fail, you just found an obstacle to cross. YET hope from others is beautiful when you realize, despite the results, that the other person truly cares for you. It is a complicated concept. Of course all I just said was a random ramble that does not consider your experience in the matter, rather it has mine. Also perhaps since I realized that hoping for love weakens my resolve over more serious matters I gave up on it from the beginning... as a human still which means I cannot let go of emotions completely... perhaps. That is yet to be seen.

Ah... and I do not know K. So I might be speaking off topic... sorry... bad habit, I love such talks ^^; This is a nice picture and does give a glimmer of hope. A change for the better? Rather than hoping it would come... would it not be more fun if one would try to change the world? :)

This is very beautiful!! My family often questions me for taking pictures of stuff. I take nature and cloud pictures. When ever they ask I say "DONT QUESTION ME!! You will get lost!" And run away. :D

I'm traveling to Europe someday soon, this photo only solidifies that desire. The harbors here in the US are nowhere near this gorgeous!

I'm glad you hoped :) K sounds much more than worth it.
