Gute Idee, die du hattest mit der Glasserie, alle Bilder davon sind sehr schön geworden!
Aber das gefällt mir persönlich am besten, weil es zeigt, wie zerbrechlich Freundschaft in Wirklichkeit eigentlich ist ~

True. Completely true. Frienship is fragil as glass. I wrote a poesy based in this image (but I don't speak as english as to traslate... sorry. But it is said "you were mi friend, and you prefer to hate me and forget me when your friendship was turn love... and you discovered that I was in love with your best friend. Then, you broke it all... you forget both of us, three friends with broken heart and broken feelings."
Well, in spanish is loooooonger and beauty xD but is the escense of mi poesy.
Thanks for the photo :)

Thanks for the nice comment, I'm happy that my photo was so inspiring to you! :D
I'd like to read your whole poem (I had Spanish at school for two years, I think with a little help from a dictionary I'll understand it.) I couldn't find the poem in your gallery, maybe you can give me the link?

Thank you for the link! I read the whole poem and I understood almost everything (after looking up 50% of the vocabulary ;-)... but I really like translating texts).

I liked the poem, it's very intense. Very dark sometimes, and with some really good metaphors. It sounds sad and a little wearily. I couldn't find all the things you said in your first comment - with the friendship turning to love and you falling in love with his best friend - in the poem though; if you hadn't told me this background story, I probably wouldn't have known what exactly had happened because the poem is so metaphoric. :blushes: But well, as a reader of a poem, you don't need to know all the details that led to the current situation, important is what are the feelings and current situation.

Especially the sentences at the end ("Who sows shadow will harvest shadow, but who hates isn't always hated", if I understood it correctly) touched me. At first it sounds paradoxical, but when I think about it a few moments, it's pretty true, and I can also relate to it. So yes, thanks again for sharing this beautiful piece of text.

It's a little too late to wish you a Merry Christmas too, so I'll wish you a Happy New Year instead! :-)

Merry Christmas too, and happy new year (I wish I could writte you something better, but my english level it's not to hiht and, probabily, I am writting extrange words and expressions (omg, I need practise! long time ago since I studied this beautifull language xD long time since I visit england xD, I think that if we speak it we both could undertand the other... well, in your devious information said that you are from germany, and I supose that your english is sooooo soooo superior that mine :P
Thanks for all!! :D :D

Photographisch noch schöner als das andere, von der Aussage her aber frustrierender ;)

Coole (2er-)Serie, wirklich!
