Painful, life is

Painful, life is

Painful, is life
at times
when we feel
lonely
when we feel
broken
when we feel
unmotivated

Painful, is life
when we cannot
reach a goal
when we cannot
save time for ourselves
when we cannot
fulfill our needs

Painful, is life
in shadows
of memories that haunt us

Painful, is life
in death
and sorrow

Painful, is life
in despair
and devastation

Painful, is life
closing in on us
suffocating
the very breaths
we need to
survive

Painful, is life
in the end

Its been over 6 weeks, but finally Meg comes home today.  I took a quick break from trying to get the apartment in some sort of order to do a little playing in the studio.  I gotta say that its quite a pain in the arse trying to focus the camera when there’s nothing to focus on till you run around and get in front of it.

I’m sick, was supposed to have some friends come over tonight to do some portrait work but I canceled because I feel like crap. Surprisingly I actually have some color in this shot. I just got my background stand and a couple backgrounds in yesterday so I decided to play a little.
