100% Ultra Fractal 5.04

Peter Gabriel-Darkness - [link]

i'm scared of swimming in the sea
dark shapes moving under me
every fear i swallow makes me small
inconsequential things occur
alarms are triggered
memories stir

it's not the way it has to be

i'm afraid of what i do not know
i hate being undermined
i'm afraid i can be devil man
and i'm scared to be divine
don't mess with me my fuse is short
beneath this skin these fragments caught

when i allow it to be
there's no control over me
i have my fears
but they do not have me

walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
the deeper I go, the darker it gets
i peer through the window
knock at the door
and the monster i was
so afraid of
lies curled up on the floor
is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

i cry until i laugh

i'm afraid of being mothered
with my balls shut in the pen
i'm afraid of loving women
and i'm scared of loving men
flashbacks coming in every night
don't tell me everything's alright

when I allow it to be
it has no control over me
i own my fear
so it doesn't own me

walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
the deeper i go, the darker it gets
i peer through the window
knock at the door
and the monster i was
so afraid of
lies curled up on the floor
is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

i cry until i laugh

You really have to get close to this one to appreciate the intricacy in the white highlights! You never cease to amaze me with your ability to make new and different things...and make them work!

Thanks, Liz. It's a good thing I never plan
my works or they would all look alike. :D

Lol, so that's the secret! ;) I tend to agree...overplanning a thing tends to make it a lot less interesting to look at in the end.

Wow! Looking at this particular piece captured my eye in an instant. I love the mood, the symmetrical effect of shapes and dimension along with the crimson shades. Your talent remains phenomenal and that will never change as far as I am concerned =D A +++ (Bravo)
