you say that you love me

you say that you will stand by me

but where were you when it was dark?

where were you when it was cold?

they took a knife to me

they took the life from me

i lay there crying

i lay there dying

cold and weak

unable to speak


you say that you love me

you say that you will stand by me

the warmth spilling out of me

the crimson draining from me

bathing in my life

watching it run from me


the knife went under

and tore me apart.

I cannot speak

I cannot breath

look what you aloud to happen to me.


19 inches of scars

I feel like I'm behind bars

Oh man... intense poem you have going there. But the image shows more hope than the words do. -- I hope this is a reflection of the hope the artist feels, despite pain of circumstance.

I love the hand coming out the light. One question; is it the hand of aid or is it the hand of whatever superior being there is, come to take his soul and thus redeem him via death?

:-) Lydia stephanie Barker replies: "Good question, accually you are correct on both grounds. "

...this picture makes you feel very sad - because he looks so sad... great job!!! i’d love to cuddle him and say everything’s gonna be allright...8

:-) Lydia stephanie Barker replies: "Yea, I was in a different place when I did this one. I’m not happy with the hand (if you can call it that) but it came out okay over all"

This picture makes me sad. To me i see the dragon, beautiful dragon, with a hint of relief or happiness that the hand has come. It’s really good3!! your a true artist that puts emotion into her art! Thumbs up!!2

:-) Lydia stephanie Barker replies: "Thank you so very much!! This isanother of my emotion driven pictures. I will admit that I did not spend much time on this one (very little time) but i think that the desired effect came through okay.
please come again. 2"

Great poem and great picture, again very emotional! The poem really reflects the thoughts suffering often bring, but I like the hope in the picture. An answer to the poem maybe? The dragon is very beautiful, and I like the way all the light pours from the one corner, with the hand reaching out to help. Nice concept, too, actually - a dragon praying! Never seen that before though it’s a very good idea!

:-) Lydia stephanie Barker replies: "i really appreciate your thoughtful comments. i am trying very hard to deal with some difficult feelings and memories. its hard to deal with them much less to not think about them with all the scars. sorry for the ramblings. hope that you have a great day or evening."

I just happened upon this while searching, praying and I too have scars, only 4 in my case and they are surgical scars and still I have cried out this way too: Why if You are God, Why did You allow ... !

Only He knows Why and yet your words and images are a testament and a "light" for others who need help that there Is Hope!

Well done!!
