Phantoms by adorkableXbabyXwhale Phantoms by adorkableXbabyXwhale
Your Phantoms are scarecrows
With cold burning eyes
And touching hands like lead bullets
As ammunition

A dozen roses
And I’ll go cold

I’m trying, I’m trying
But eyes fade
Nights and Days
Into the end of nothing

Falling forever
Forever
Forever and ever



Found Poetry from the song Demolition Lovers by My Chemical Romance.

I picked this song because it's my favorite by them and the lyrics are really deep and meaningful. Plus the song is long so I had a lot to work with xD

This is for #MCRdeviantClub 's Found Poetry Contest.

The poem is sort of stupid, but I liked how the drawing came out. I'm a first timer with watercolors so excuse my lack of expertise.

Oh and I'm really sorry for the crappy scan. My scanner sucks butt enchiladas :l

EDIT EDIT: Holy guacamole people, thank you SO much for all the favorites and comments and the daily deviation! I'm so unworthy of this! Thank you a million times! I'm gonna go cry of happiness now~

Beautifully arranged, I can just hear the song flowing out of the image.
Of course, that could be because it's blasting on my iPod 24/7.
Anyhow, this is magnificent. I present to you the highest of fives. :iconfinnandjakeplz:

There's something very striking about the way this is put together, the way the words fall down the page add to the essence of the message on the ultimate futility of our puny existences and inescapable fate.

I think my favourite detail of this poem was how the words were very slightly blurred where it said "but eyes fade". It made this very real for me!
Grats on the DD; it's completely well-deserved! :squee: :heart:

Well, I know you wrote that you're sorry that what you painted wasn't pro and you'd just started, I think that I'd prefer this simple coloring rather than something overly complicated.
Those grays and blacks look like smoke curling up and spitting out, and those hands just add an air to the picture that makes it so amazing. And then there's the way you cut the lyrics out of the song and pasted them on in the unsure, sad, descending way that adds even more emotion to it.

I know you might be thinking "Wow, okay, I didn't plan anything or for it to be this nice; you're overestimating/over-analyzing it." but really, how you put it all out is super cool. Sometimes the stuff we don't mean to turn out amazing turns out to be the best.

DD well deserved :dalove:
