'Yes, it's me once again. Remember me? I'm sure you do, for a lovely long time I was your shadow, the blood in your veins and the flesh you loved to tear apart. Because I was pain, pleasure and sorrow.

You missed me, I can tell. Do not fret, I am here, embracing your cold body with steel. You called me, so now hush and stay still. Dry your tears, no need to be all sad and sweet. You're not the victim.

I will strangle your thoughts and ideas, you're definitely not worth them. Not even those smiles you're so proud to show, I'll burn them! No more nights of sleep, believe me, they're just a burden.

And from now on you shall follow the rules, baby girl, and then we'll fall together in a bleeding whirl. That's all you wish, I know.

Take my hand, allow me to guide you into an endless sleep-walking, into damaged veins. Lose control, lovely girl, let go of the reins. I'll take over.

You've got nothing left, so give up on this empty mind, on such tired soul.

And now follow me. Follow the rules.'</i>

This really is a beautiful piece. I love the contrast between the skin, the eyes and the bloody traces. The shading is very pretty and makes the photograph look kind of mystical. The idea may not be new but it's still creative and I really like the 'innocent' look of the model and the violence that comes from the red color.
There also is a slight trace of pinkish red (?) on the cheeks which looks very beautiful and tender. I personally don't know much about photography but I think your work is really impressive and looks very professional! Thank you for sharing this with us and keep up the amazing work.

dramatic but easy on the eyes. You balanced the contrast and the model's soft features beautifully. the blue eyes and blood add a touch of drama and balanced well with the soft lighting.

Wow! Very intense photo and words. I was trying to figure out what the words meant, who was saying them etc., then I saw that the first tag on this photo is #depression and I then read the words as if 'depression' were speaking them. Is that what you intended? If it is, it is very powerful and a really fantastic, gritty and unique way of conceptualising depression. Awesome work! (or maybe I'm completely off track here haha)

This is quite provocative and intense. However; Art, in all it's myriad forms, proves that there are NO rules...

reminds me two characters : Carrie White and Abby, the little vampire girl from Let Me In, played by the same actress; Chloe Moretz :)
