Cry for Me (an image & a poem) by 

(listen to the music (below) as it enhances the viewing experience)

Another one from those days. . . Revisiting them makes me remember and appreciate how far I have come since then.

Cry for Me
Visible beings occur frequently hearabout.
They speak so low so not to shout.
Time walks by while hope it found.
Clocks tick furiously without a sound.
Ears all listen to things not said.
People sigh for those now dead.
Hearing this no purpose near,
Cry for me, I live in fear. . .

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    How did I miss this? Your talent is just taking off at the moment, and your ability to match images to music is second to none. This is just wonderful.

  • Thank you Anna, I am really glad you think so. I get a bit worried about exposing myself so deeply. Even though this was written a very long time ago it still reveals a part of myself that I have kept put away in a dark corner for quite a while. It feels good to let it out.
