those days we spent, alone

spending my day in the quiet. trying not to waste that much breath, trying to make the most of my day, trying to be the best i can be, but failing.

 

sometimes you just look in the mirror and you tell that person on the other side that they're going to become better someday, that they're going to make it, that it'll be over soon, but all they do is follow your words incessantly and repeat them back to you in the reflection--like they're not the ones who are lost, but rather you're lost. your mirror image is always telling you how to be and who to be just as you're trying to tell him how to feel, but all you end up doing is looking at him and telling him it's time to get up, get out, and go.

 

but both of you still stay there, and even though you have each other, you're both alone in your separate worlds, waiting for someone to come and rescue you--

 

but at least you're still trying.

    I love how simple this shot is but also looks more dramatic because of the texture and light over your head & shoulder.
  • Marie Dücker 3y

    oh my god, this is beautiful. it may seem like a simple snapshot but there's so much more to it. especially when reading the description. I think we've all been there. both the versions are gorgeous, I love how your face is lit on only one side.

    i'm trying to figure out the logistics and prices and such of selling prints so I think i'm going to start that once I figure it all out hahaha. also it's a problem that a lot of my images don't have any concrete crop dimensions... i used to just randomly crop my images however i wanted without taking in account printing them... haha oooooooops

    i very much love this! and the fact that you used b&w just makes this that much more amazing!
  • Cynthia 3y

    I really really like the light framing you, especially where it hits the top of your hair and your shoulders. The colour one looks awesome, but I love the tones you applied to the black and white one.
  • Paul..Andrews 3y

    I lie the natural setting and pose - very charming. The black and white version works really well.
  • Meg Hartley 3y

    the dust in the air definitely makes this. I love the feel <3
  • Nicole Apodaca 3y

    The lighting is awesome!
