I thought it wasn't wrong to hide from you, the simple truth, I was scared. I'd felt it all along but it hurt too much for me to share...If only I had been less blind I'd have someone to hold on to. If only I could change your mind. If only I had known. If only I had you. I finally understand why things have happened and how it all could go so wrong. Will this pain ever end 'cause I don't think I can carry on...If only I had been less blind I'd have someone to hold on to. If only I could have spoke my mind. If only it were true, we could start brand new, I know I'd make it through. If only I had you... (~IF ONLY by Hoobastank) At last I have finished the colored version of this piece. It's taken me forever but I believe this is as done as it's going to get. I'm still trying to learn how to color on the comp and I'm no expert at lighting or shadows or anything but this said so much to me as it stood now that I felt it was ready to speak for itself. And as such, I do not wish to cheapen this image with a long description and would just rather let it speak for itself...Lord knows, there is so much to be said... my Irish vampire reaching so desperately...as so oft I feel myself doing...if only perhaps we might some day close our hands around that which we've extended them towards.
