Wherever I Go From Here by ericinprogress Wherever I Go From Here by ericinprogress
Misplaced in a tiny moment this time slips away from us,
like every doubt we’ve shared has me constantly counting backwards towards a cluster of empty promises.
Mostly I was just sitting there with you wasting another hour away from moving forward.
I was surprised when you caught me stuck in my head again,
contemplating every bad thing in this world like it was all a fault of my own.
An unfaithful me wanted to cower in a corner every time a flash of guilt triggered another reason to look away from you.
A misstep over a gap in my judgment was a free-fall into a persistent pit of regret.
Anticipating a negative reaction I tensed up waiting for this peaceful moment to fail,
When You playfully nudged me and said,
“Where there are shadows there is also light.”
I shrugged and accepted that you were probably right.
You smiled and I sighed.
Somehow you’ve always had a way of turning my attention to the brighter side of things.
However I don’t know where this life is going.
And I kind of feel like it’s pulling me away from you,
but I hope you know that I’ll take every memory of you with me,
wherever I go from here.

Music that inspired:

"Roads" Portishead

And this one goes straight into favourites. Beautiful composition, perfect perspective: the feeling of being small in front of something much greater is extraordinary, and I love the way you've played with the light to create an unreal atmosphere in the middle of the drawing, keeping the contours and the foreground in focus.

There's just something about this that pulls me in and captures me. I only wish I could explain it. This is beautifully thought up and executed, with such stunning attention to detail and proportions. Fantastic job. I am pretty much speechless.
