AwakeN by halaquinn-arcadias AwakeN by halaquinn-arcadias
Stripped of life, alone
In the midst of something that I
Want to play with your evil inside
Wanting, letting go, of what never could be again
Lost and alone
Imprisoned now inside your mind

With the way you tried
To destroy me again
You were waiting and living for no one
With the way you tried
To completely refuse all your life feed on your nothing
You'll never live up to me

Awaken you
With little evil inside
Feed on your nothing
You'll never live up to me
I've stricken you
I don't want to live with the lie

Feed on your nothing
And you'll never live up to me!

---Awaken by Disturbed---


A miracle shot really, and I'm not claiming to me mega original the whole flipping of hair has been done a lot I know. But I think it's awesome and it was a real challenge to do as a self portrait!

Very nice movement, and the lighting truly adds to both the immediacy and intensity of the photograph.

I know this is a very difficult thing to do as a self portrait. That's why I think it's even more stunning.

Great capture :rose:
