Day 221 – I crush everything

"I lie below, you float above
In the pretty white ships that I’ve been dreaming of
And I’d like to swim beside you
Getting dizzy in your wake
Getting close enough to touch you
Getting brave enough to take you into my arms
And bring you down to be with me

But I can’t do that thing anymore
I can’t be the thing I was before
Maybe I am better off alone
Because I crush everything
And I crush everything
And I crush everything

I crush Everything – Jonathan Coulton

I had this Image on my to-do list forever and since I haven’t done anything involving a bit more post processing work for a while I thought it was about time I started again.

I don’t know why, but this one came so naturally and was done without lots of corrections, revisits, etc. The only thing that made me struggle a bit was placing the font. I am still not really happy with it, but I couldn’t find another place that wasn’t totally destroying the balance in the frame.
