In the Darkness by UntamedUnwanted In the Darkness by UntamedUnwanted
I wish I could explain why, after so long, when pictures have evaded me, I choose to post this. Perhaps it is because after almost a year and a half, I have clicked something I am actually proud of.

Or maybe its because I feel like I owe this to the memory of all that I have lost this year. So here it is.

Rest in Peace April 2011- April 2012

I am sorry for your loss.

This is a gorgeous picture, and without reading your artist comments it has an emotional impact. It reminded me of how I felt when I lost my dad.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can think of nothing more painful than losing a parent. <3

Thank you. I had many years that were beyond amazing with him. He was an incredible father. I could have had a terrible father who beat me but who lived to be 100. Mine died too young, but I was lucky in that he gave me so much love and so many wonderful memories that they will last until I live to be 100, and passed on in my children. :heart:

Anything I can do for you?
I could try to write a tribute,
but I can't promise how it'll turn out.

Is it odd that a photo you took shocks me speechless just as much as your writing does? You have me sitting in both awe at your capability for passion and shock at the emotions I find in just a single picture.

I hope you never forget just how beautiful you are and that you never give up because there are people here who love you and cherish you...

P.S... is it sad that I missed you? Your work is beautiful and the intensity of your emotions speaks in every piece you create....I bet the pictures that "evaded" you are just as awe-inspiring as this one and I hope you realize just how true that is of all your work, posted or not.

Scry nigh, through mind's tearful eye,
Dreams lost and left in their time.
They plead, "Why? Please stay behind ..."

Turning away (heart denied),
The ashes fall to her side.
Their calling haunts every stride.

Fiery soul (her only guide)
Reluctantly must decide
Her fate has yet to arrive.

I would be happy to discuss the matter with you, but I fear your triumphant return to dA will keep you busy responding to others' comments for several days (at least).

May each comment serve as prayer to quell mind's voice of naysayer.

It would be interesting to see your reaction when the volume of comments on your latest submissions causes dA to crash.

How I am doing is not important.

Very happy to see that you are in relatively good spirits.

Very afraid of your kindness causing that to change for knowing a few bits of trivia that will ultimately sort themselves out.

It is truly heart-warming that you would ask. There are others here who have missed you terribly. They will need you.

You have nothing to be afraid of. :) It's always good to talk to you.

I have missed DA too. But have always had this fear that I will come here one day and everyone would have forgotten me. I hope today is not that day. :)

It's a powerful image, Nik! There is darkness but also love and hope.
I'm glad you found again that photographs can express your emotions almost as well as writing does. It's a very powerful medium and you have a talent for it. I hope you will find and share more images that come from your heart.
