Artist's Description

Don’t You Say I Told You So a poem by RestLeSsD

I think back on those past times.
I know I commited those crimes.
They were so very long ago.
I’ve served my time, please let them go.

Yet you still hold them in front of me.
No day goes by where you see just me.
In your eyes I am not true.
I’ll never be good enough for you.

It is as if I am still jailed.
My heart & soul have been impaled.
My wounds did heal but left a scar,
A constant reminder is what you are.

Can we ever just start over?
Can I stop looking over my shoulder?
Will we ever let the past be gone?
Won’t you let me forget my wrongs?

You smile that smile I know says NO.
In your eyes the scorn does show.
In your heart you won’t let go.
Don’t you say I told you so.
I have to leave now, I must go.
Don’t you say I told you so.

The idea for this image & poem has been in my mind for a while. The background image helped bring the idea to fruition. Thank you mjranum-stock for use of the free stock. I have been working on this off & on for about 2 weeks. And finally here it is.
Partially inspired by real life things with a touch of non-fiction imagination thrown in for emotional impact :o). . .

Image created in PSCS2 using layers, masking, blending, texturing, native & external filters (including a Fractilius filter layer) along with digital painting with tablet & pen.
