The Trials of EnvyI step in the solitude of silenceThe Trials of Envy by PoisonedOracle
Trapped in a world consumed by tyrants
I loathe the rules and compliance
I envy those who are still aspirant
I walk through the valley of valour
Reminded of the bravery of those come and gone
The very air brimming with their honour
I envy the loyalty they could draw upon
I dread the darkness of my dreams
My deepest fears coming to light
A surreal limbo filled with suffocating screams
I envy those who find peace sleeping at night
I feel water washing up against my waist
I wonder how far into the ocean I should wade
What I would give to have a tiny taste
I envy the freedom of the mystical mermaid
I run through the race of reliving
Desperately trying to catch every sunken memory
In my mind these thoughts are constantly residing
I envy the time when you were here with me
I fall to my feet, crying on the floor
For I know, my envy will serve me no more
Really nicely detailed piece! The message it sends is also great- one day, we'll all be like this. Very original and attention-grabbing! Everything you drew was done with so much skill; this must have been very time-consuming.
Firstly, stunning execution. Such sharp, clean line work and areas of high contrast and blanker areas to let the eyes rest. As my own art style leans toward pen and ink abstract "doodles" as this, this submission caught my eye due to the creative ingenuity the artist used in designing the piece. The design elements in this piece are is quite thought-provoking due to the description, and the addition of the extra synthetic brain.
The Loop"You don't even listen
when I am talking.
You don't care anymore!
I give you all of me
and you give me nothing.
Why won't you talk to me?
We haven't had a conversation
"You're like a robot.
What must I do
to make you feel something?
Do you even love me anymore?"
Activate automated loop
Return null output
"Of course I love you
and I always will.
I don't know what's wrong
with me anymore."
"I can change.
I will change.
I promise to show you
how I really feel."
"I just want you to love me.
I'm sorry I doubted you.
Do you promise to be more romantic?"
"Of course babe.
I love you."
The dialogue in this writing is different than I have seen. The robotic language combined with the simple conversation would make people see how people can act like robots themselves and pocess that quality, and how information is changing the way we think and speak, even when they might not realize it
Because many of us know how this feels. Too many of us know exactly what it's like, and the artists has put those feelings into a poem and connected it brilliantly to the theme. The small sentences that keep coming back are very well found.
The surrealism and simplicity mix brilliantly. The lighting effects emphasize each shape and object well.
I like the way this picture is painted. It creates a very calming and contemplative atmosphere. I'm impressed by the geometrical shapes and their meaning. Everything is thought out well.
