Your Suicide by linnyxito Your Suicide by linnyxito
In memory of my friend. A true story... It's been a couple of years since it happened, so it feels good to have finished this... A very personal project :)
(Hope I'm not offending anyone - I don't mean to. And you guys don't need to comment unless you really want to. I know this sort of deviation may make people uncomfortable...)

EDIT: I can't believe I got a daily deviation... I really have no words... And all those comments, whoa - you people are so amazing - I really am super-grateful. This means so much more than you know.
EDIT 2: I found you something - a song:…
I really found comfort in its lyrics: "Cry, heart, cry yourself to sleep, cry a storm of tears if it helps you breathe."
EDIT 3: A minor edit done to fix spots here and there, plus I added a rather important line ("Told us to remember you").

As always, send me a note if you want to talk, I'm usually around DA on a daily basis. (;
And some of you asked if you could share this... Of course you can. (:

This piece... it goes so deep, and is very intimate and sorrowful. On the one hand, it is heart-wrenching to hear about the man who killed himself. But the piece has a tangible sense of hope at the end, when the person talks about trying to save their brother from that same fate, and make him happy again. Very good job expressing emotion in this piece, it is very moving.

Replace the he with a she and this exact thing happened to me.  I'm very impressed by how well you articulated your feelings, I certainly wasn't able to.

Thank you for your kind words - they mean more than you know. I also want to say that I am very sorry for your loss... I hope that she can find peace and that you can, too.

I've loved this picture for soooo long but I didn't look up the original ( just saw reposts ), and I'm so glad I finally did, time to add this to my favs to have it where it belongs. I'm so glad you created something like this, I don't think you can even begin to imagine how many people it has touched :D
