  I can relate directly to this picture and emotion. It sucks, but its beautiful how you could make me feel  it again with one picture

I take photos of beauty but also of pain. There were real tears on those pillow sheets.

what happened? how did you lose her?

that's a story i can't really tell in-detail.

suffice it to say, she lost her mom during an operation. her dad wasn't around since her childhood. and when her didn't make it, she shut me out.

I'm sorry man, that sucks. I was just wondering if she had passed away.

Stay strong though.

Thank you. I'm quite surprised and grateful, truly I am. But... I don't understand why I was added in. Every other picture is an actual couple (kissing, walking, etc).

My photo is not two-way love. Mine is alone and in excruciating pain. I don't think I like being that one photo in the gallery that doesn't belong.

You truly belong into that feature. Let me explain why.
In this feature I tried to summon all the love-related photography on deviantART. Yes, I know there are mostly two-way love pictures, but look at these ones:

The feeling of longing does also belong to love, and that is why I included you also.
Yours is far the most emotional picture I have ever seen on deviantART.
If you want me to delete it from the feature, just tell me.

It's hard to explain. ...I don't like to disrespect sadness. I mean, shit, just seeing that picture again is flaring up the anxiety that I had battled with every day over her. I lost my soulmate, not a girlfriend. I'm tearing up just typing that.

If you feel that way about it though, you can keep it up. I just didn't understand at first.

Don't. It's ok for me to confront it. I, ultimately, have to learn to let go. Love is a two-way thing.

Such a powerful photo! The black and white helps portray that fact. You know what they say "sometimes one door closes so another will open" I am hoping that a door will open for you and that "someone" will be the one you have been looking for. Someone who will love more than this person did. If and when that happens, embrace it, go for it and love them for all it's worth and maybe, just maybe the door that opens will be your forever "lover and best friend". Thank you for sharing this hard time with us, maybe we can lighten the load some.

I know it's not much but if you need to vent or talk, let me know, I will listen and try to help! Keep your chin up. Things will work out, they always do. Maybe not the way we wanted them too but usually the way that's best for us. Cheryl

I've told he story so many times at this point that it's kind of exhausting to do it more.

However, I do appreciate the offer and there's a chance I may send you a note later on.
Again, thank you for your support. I'm very grateful that I have a good network of friends and family holding me up through this.

hard signature distracts a lot from soft tones, this is one and only flaw of the photo, good idea to show some emotions :) have a nice day!

i can totally understand that. i might try resizing it down and uploading a new copy. for now, i just wanted to make it harder for people to steal.

make transparent watermark and blend it in non-constant texture to make it readable, but not erasable :)

or just let them download, even if someone can make his own webpage and put it under a script that blocks copying - simple printscreen button makes it look weak :P just make a restriction about commercial usage, or something ;)

i'm not all too concerned about it one way or another. steal my work, don't steal my work... no one will ever have what's in my head that lets me produce these. best of luck to the thieves.

now, without signature, it looks like a frame from a movie, nothing distracts from the motive :)
