-Tired- by HennaLucas -Tired- by HennaLucas
I miss a lot of people. Where did things go wrong...? What happened? I know good things are still here, I know they are; I just wish I could find them again. I wish that I could somehow prove that Im not just deluding myself, I want to believe that this is happening for a reason, that were not alone in all this...Its as if we go through life with this blind faith in something better and I used to believe it, but all of this war and death, it makes me so afraid of what comes next. I want to believe in God, but every time I try, I can only see my dead parents. I can only feel my brother die in my arms and I can only remember the day when my best friend was shot through the head and his sister raped for a mistake that I made- something as small as sewing the star on the wrong side of my shirt! I want to know how all of this could have possibly happened for a reason! I dont care about religion any more- I just want to know that theres someone whos listening, someone who will be waiting for me when its time for me to go. [The Paper Stars, pg. 265]

This shook me to my very core. It's simply wordless in its effect, in the very best way wordless can be. Given the apparent "muse" of the insert, I am shocked on how the meaning is only intensified with the art itself. From the wounds, clothing, type-writer font, pale background, blood splatters around the work and the tattooed in tags on the wrist, it's simply amazing how you were able to visually give the meaning before anyone had a second to read the insert. I am very interested in this and from the amount of good comments that you have gotten, I would not be surprised that others are just as shaken as I am. Well done.
What do you think?

Your writing makes me cry.
But then, like that last picture I saw of yours, you can get addicted to some kinds of sadness.

this makes me think that even though that things are going wrong that the two will hold on.
be strong. even though the grasp is at the pinkies. if makes me feel liek the two will both be there for each other.
this is quite beautiful.
but sad.

Each time I see this, I have the impression the fingers are about to snap, and the hands to fall...

it's a very bad example, but a bit like... wait, no, it's a too bad example anyway
