"...... love is just like a war we can’t win
we can give, we can give, we can give
when we stand in the face of the world falling down
what’s your answer for the end........"

Listen: Music Inspiration
Behind this image;; In limbo, thats what it feels like inside me right now. I'm not real, not really here either. I've been absent for so so long. It's not like I can't pretend that I haven't f*cked everything up once again! If I could have gone a whole lifetime without feeling the pain of loving someone so much, that you can barely breathe when they are gone, then I would. I so so would. I hate that when you are trying so hard not to think of the thing that hurts the most, it surrounds you like a virus. Everyone is busy feeling it, every single hour of every single day. Too bad I trusted too much. Won't be doing that again in a hurry I can assure you.
This is how abandonment feels. Welcome to the rhelm of 'Nothing Left To Lose..'

oh my God this is so sad. He has no where to go, no one to comfort him, cold, lonely and sad.
Amazing job, you took emotion to a whole new level...

PS. I'm sorry you feel that way. But things will get better,
Example: like when you are a teenager and there is that special someone you cant get off your mind. But Special Someone all ready has a special someone of their own. You see them together and your heart shatters to pieces. You might turn to bad things for help. But eventually its better right? Because if it didn't no one would survive their teenage years...
Things will get better trust me.

This is beautiful work! I love the feeling of dejection in the horses pose, and the desolate surroundings and the terrible weather really strengthen the image. I love the way you've shown the rain running down his face, so it looks like tears, or maybe is.

I hope you don't mind, but I've used this picture as part inspiration for a poem. If you're interested it's here: [link]

See this picture actually should a lifter upper for you because a horse never quits. To me it looks as if this horse is ready to plunge into that sea and swim his heart out. So, in my opinion it's more like push through hard things no matter what is ahead of you and try to make the best of it...maybe? :) haha I don't know...Amazing work though! Detail is incredible! Plus, horses are the SH*T! Keep up the good work!
