Inspired by what Bella says in ‘New Moon’ about her state of mind when Edward has left – ’It’s as if there is this hole inside of me’.

It’s one of those feelings I think a lot of us can relate to. Here’s the poem to go with it.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Brilliant. You have so well captured the essence of the emptiness that is left after a bereavement or loss. So much work has gone into this image and I commend you on all that you have done. Fabulous.

  • Thank you so much Anna. It was a difficult one as it didn’t properly come together until the last. It was struggling under my stylus… so to speak. LOL xo
