'Amongst the dead' by QuantumSuz 'Amongst the dead' by QuantumSuz
Wouldn't you feel at home
Disturbing those settled?
To see a mirror of your pale existence
And to see that it is beautiful

Allowing them to bask a while
In your fading mortal warmth
To give something you need no more
Their lifeless glow cast upon a dark form

To sense their tiny souls around you
And feel no fear at all
To give in to a belonging
When amongst the dead too long

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

Photoshop, took quite a long time, I've been working on this for quite a while on and off. The picture went through quite a few incarnations, with various other elements in the piece, but I decided to keep the concept simple in the end. I'm still not happy with her face but I think everything else is probably OK.

Enjoy,
Suz :)

Oh and sorry for double comment, but the only thing that made me wonder whenever to fav this or not was indeed her face, but everything else is greatly done. :)
