Take Shelter by Greyguardian Take Shelter by Greyguardian
(...) w snach
widzę coraz więcej ludzi
mówią krzyczą

a w życiu nic
mnie już nie budzi

w snach mówią do mnie
zmarli żywi
słowo po słowie
się rozpada(...)"

"(...) in dreams
i see more and more people
they talk they shout

and in life
nothing awakes me anymore

in dreams talk to me
dead alive
word after word
is falling apart(...)"

One of the most emotive works I have seen in a while.
Is it really a sheltering hug? Could be possessive as well, suffocating even.

Excellent work, Alicja. :clap:

it could be... sometimes it is just our perception. Maybe it would be better to know the intentions of the one who is holding. But who knows what those people are keeping in their heads? :confused:

I suppose it'd be frighenting to look into others' minds. :noes:
(Considering that others would definitely be frightened if they could take a look into my mind.)

thank you Hanan, it means a lot comming from you.

What are the other reasons to cry?

i don't know... i've always wanted to cry when someone dear held me under his protection or expressed love or tenderness. it's more an emotional overflow.
this maternal figure seems to "contain" you all. my motherly heart is moved. :)

I understand now. Well, for me "being held" was not always only positive experience. Sometimes i get the feeling that this embrace is more suffocating, trying taking away the indivituality.

Nevertheless, it is comforting - too.

Just ambiguous, most of the time.

Wow, that is amazing. I love the outline of the woman and how it gives the sense she is there, but not visible to us.
There is a lot of emotion in this and I think you have done a fantastic job.
