Until It Sleeps by snow-valkyrie Until It Sleeps by snow-valkyrie
~*Inner thoughts*~
This is my fractal for the Halloween II Contest ---> [link] I am submitting this work under the fractal category. Duh!:giggle::slow: I worked hard on the symbolism in this fractal. Sometimes dark thoughts can swallow your love an positive thinking whole. It can be a frightening experience if you let it take you over. Welcome to the world of metal illness. Despite what the world says, it is not trendy or the "new black". Mental illness can consume you mind, body and soul. The frightening part is most people have no idea what is wrong with them until it is too late.

Comments, questions, and critiques are welcome and appreciated. Enjoy!

~*Musical Inspiration*~
Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side

So tear me open and pour me out
There's things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

Just like the curse, just like the stray
You feed it once and now it stays
Now it stays

So tear me open but beware
There's things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you so hold me
It stains you so hold me
It hates you so hold me
It holds you so hold me
Until it sleeps - Until It Sleeps, Metallica

Wanna listen to the complete song? Of course you do! ---> [link] :headbang:

What I love about this kind of Art is, I don't think It's meant to always show one specific shape.

Wallpaper'd and Faved.
