"I'll dissolve when the rain pours in,
When the nightmares take me,
I will scream with the howling wind,
'Cause it's a bitter world and I'd rather dream."

I'm so excited to find the original source of this image, the title, and the short verse that goes along with it. I am planning on getting this tattooed as an upper arm sleeve. This image has spoken to me through some very dark depression. I am even more inspired now.

Heyydaydreamer please be aware this gorgeous piece of work is being used by a homophobic hate spewing Twitter account @questionLGBTedu it has been involved in the targeted abuse of LGBT individuals. I thought you should be aware

I remember when four years ago my art teacher walked into the classroom with a printed version of the exact same picture and said we have to do our own version it. Can't believe that I found this!

Hi, I have been searching for the owner since I saw this randomly. 

I made a poem and used this piece to illustrate an abstract meaning.

I would like to finally ask for permission and use the link to give credits for illustration.

I absolutely love this.  The colours & contrast between the girl & the rainbow is so striking.  
This says so much to me. Love it.

The actual design is simple and elegant. However, the detail you have put in to the girl gives her substance and presence. The colours complement the figure. Beautiful piece of work

Hello! Would you mind if I recreated this? If I post it anywhere, I will cite you as the artistic genius behind the idea. It's absolutely beautiful and I would love to try drawing/painting it on my own.
