Delusions of Reality

Alone is where I'll wait,
      and alone is where I'll be

Waiting for you
   by the shore of a sea...
       that thrashes, and crashes, and sings to me

Sings of things forgotten
    and things yet to be
  'til past and future intertwine
     to embrase this dream -- this reality

A song for love
     and a song for pain
A song of loss
     and one for gain
A song for hope
     and a song for joy
A song of dreams
      of death,
      ... of many things

A song for you,
     and a song for me --
        Two lost souls...

        ...dancing with eternity


Well, this one took a little longer than I was planning on spending on it. But it's finally done :) Hope you like it...

The poem was inspired by the piece... not the other way around.

Oil on canvas 48x36"


Wow... Wasn't expecting a DD for it. Thanks though, and thankyou to everyone who has looked/faved/commented on it. It is very much appreciated :nod:

I noticed some people asked about prints. They will be available soon, check back in a day or two :)

:jawdrop: this is totally awesome! The colours are the part that jumps out at me the most, but all of it is brilliant!
I love the design, slightly reminds me of the world between worlds thing in Narnia :XD: But different too, obviously..
Very awesome concept :D

Very beautiful. I love the colours, and the composition, and the way the roots of the tree curls. Very cool.
