Hurt

Artist's Description

I want to thank everyone for all their comments and support on this image. It’s special to me, and I’m not a portrait photographer, not yet!

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

I took this shot of my great friend Gene, when he had no idea I was capturing an image of him. He is so use to me having a camera in my hand.

My father use to say that we are fortunate to have 5 true friends in our lifetime, I can see that now. Gene is one of those great friends whom I’ll always cherish.

Gene is 75, and now moving from the lake (yes the lake i shoot everything at) and moving into the city closer to me. I shall miss that lake, but look forward to having my friend closer to me.

He is also losing his vision…………and this image catches him trying so hard to see what he’s looking at.

Composite of 2 images.
