Mistakes

"They help me live a lie, erase all my mistakes"

 

Another meds/lyrics inspired picture, I converted it to black and white with the good old channel mixer, and then used a layer mask to let the red show through.

 

I scribbled out the word in pencil, to show that the erasing is temporary (As the mistake was in pen) Eventually you have to face these things on your own.

 

The eraser was included to show the temptation to rub out the cure, and try to deal with things before you are ready.

 

The split pill is just there to tie the image together.

 

Note: I recently saw someone had copied this on to their blog (Without asking! - Kinda naughty, but hey...) they put some really nice text with it:

 

"Everybody makes mistakes; that's why they put erasers on pencils.

But some mistakes are written in pen.

And cannot be covered even with correction tape.

And some people when you try to cover with correction liquid,

They scrape it off with their hands and feet."
