Into Dust... by shinga Into Dust... by shinga
Still falling
Breathless and on again
Inside today
Beside me today
Around, broken in two
Till your eyes shed
Into dust
Like two strangers
Turning into dust
Till my hand shook
With the way I fear

I could possibly be fading
Or have something more to gain
I could feel myself growing colder
I could feel myself under your fate
Under your fate"

Mazzy Star - "Into Dust"


I've been wanting to draw something like this for ages. I used to be able to dance... quite well, even. I loved it. And now... well. Now it's hard to even think about dancing, much less be around it. When I see it, when I remember when I used to be able to do that... it breaks my heart and I feel like I'm falling into nothingness.

/emo, maybe :P Still... I don't do much art about disability and, well, I have a lot of feelings about it. Might as well draw.

edit holy crap a DD? I've never had one of those before O.O; *blush* It wasn't easy for me to decide to show this level of vulnerability with this pic but wow. I'm truly touched by this.

Into Dust... by *shinga is executed simply yet elegantly, and the sentiment hits you in the gut like a ton of bricks. ( Suggested by KytheraOA and Featured by kozispoon )

I found your dA through a friend, and i was just flipping through because your art is amazing, but.... this really touched me.

Thank you for showing this and allowing us to see this vulnerability. I can relate and it made me cry (in a good way). Thank you SO much for posting your art.

This piece is amazing - it's deep, thoughtful, emotional and really hits home. I understand the feelings behind this as I deal with a dissability as well. to be that beaten down by your on body -having to watch life and what you love pass you by is a pain deeper than any other. You've displayed that emotion sincerely and beautifuly.

I really, really love this picture. It conveys so much emotion, and its been brilliantly done, and it's amazing, and... I have no more words.
May I use this as the cover photo for my poem "She Wants to Fly"? Your picture just exemplifies exactly what I was trying to write.
