My Hearts a Mess by Rhonda Strickland


Small (20.9" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

Foolish me, I let you in.
I melted with just one kiss.
I fell so hard it hurt
But not as much as this.

Foolish me, I gave myself,
My soul, my mind, my heart.
I never would’ve expected
You were false right from the start.

My hearts a mess,
Don’t know if it will survive
Oh messy, messy heart,
Can it ever be revived?

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…
