photoblog image I break easily

I break easily

Back again with another self portrait. I dug out an old poem I wrote some years ago to with the image (I don't write anymore, or more like I find it hard to write these days).

I am running but I don't know where
life so fast no time to rest or spare
slipping behind can't keep up the pace
stress in silence, unable to ventilate
I slip so easily

What life holds for me is randomly unfair
I wish the path before me was not so unclear
The clouds come, the gather over my head
the rain falls and my pain is evidently bled
I shatter like glass

Lord help me, my world tumbles from up down
feeling avalanche of troubles holding me to drown
the engulfing darkness reveals my fears
and then there are tears.....................
I break so easily

the image is fabulously fragile.
sk: WOW Maro left a comment, thanx babe
Hmmm...somehow I wise you centred yourself in this one. Also wished you'd cropped it with a 1x1 crop too. Otherwise it's a nice shot.
sk: thanx dude, U know me, couldn't centre if I tried
moving image + very touching poem = winning picture

p.s. Finally! we get a picture of a narely naked young man. Keep them coming.

Long live the Frustuated Women on Shutterchance Association.

this picture has SEAL written all over it-the cover of his 2nd album looks very similar to this picture.
not bad at all.The grain below adds some life to it

excellent study in form and shape.. well done

Absolutely awesome. The words and image are great. I'm loving this self-portrait series. Mo, I'm not really sure about your clamor for more images of the male form. Not all of them are as fine a specimen as Asiko here. We don't want to start a stampede now do we?
sk: shux u flatter me

i saw this the day it was put up, but i was much too busy to put up a decent comment. but no matter how late i am, i must let you know that i think this is an amazing shot. i absolutely love it. the lighting adds a little extra to the character of the subject, who himself is a bit of a paradox... the strength of the arms vis a vis the frality of his world. good work!
sk: WOW thanx Funmi
