Blue Skies and Pain by mental Blue Skies and Pain by mental
Blue Skies and Pain
-----------------------------------------
Blue skies and pain surround me.
I'm sitting in a stagnant solitude,
Waiting for that something real.
In the distance I see nothing,
Except a blinding light,
So very far away.

With a hope that is hopeless,
I sit here alone in the cold,
Wrapped in the branches of a tree,
Suckling the warm from it's veins.
This morning's sun shone signs of hope,
Now it is just more blue skies and pain.

I reach for the distant light,
It dies in my crippled grasp.
The sun has died and its growing dark,
The blues turning to shades of black,
My pain is melting away leaving me numb,
I miss my blue skies and pain.

-----------------------------------------

Several hours in photoshop.
45+ layers.
6 of my original photographs.
1 photo from a royality free stock site.

George wanted to travel.

Thanks for viewing...

I'd like to get ahold of you concerning this picture. I'm holding a Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, May 12 of 2010 in Lafayette, LA. I'd like to speak to you about purchasing the use of this design for t-shirts to sell, and a deal that could be possibly worked out to reimburse you from sales. Please contact me, at your convenience, at fmsmanage@yahoo.com Thanks! -Sarah

At this dark hour I need such a beautiful and shocking image, and also the poem to be able to watch through my thoughts inside my feelings...

I love the frame, as if reality goes beyond our senses... thanks
