A story about a dead woman by moppaa A story about a dead woman by moppaa
Sometimes takes me back to my memory
In the terrible summer day,
When wandered along the river nameless,
I stumbled on the corpse of the unfortunate woman.
She lay there, throwing back his head,
On the neck wound I saw the ugly.
From here it, barefoot, half-naked,
Some mud incomprehensible all smeared.
But that look bad, that hatred,
With a dead girl looked at me.
I exclaimed, meanings of his words not knowing:
"Don't you dare look me in everything she!"
't understand my condition,
Terrible glance eclipsed my mind,
And I ran away from the place.
Reduced crazy damn her eyes...

Ran until quite exhausted I,
But, I turned around and seen this little woman.
Can't be! What terrible power
Was the corpse suddenly set in motion?
And the body of the dead I pushed into the river fast,
And crossed it, the flow of подчиняемо.
And I'm going to run, that was my strength.
And fell on the road, shouting desperately...
And now I looked in the window, sleep-swollen -
Under the window - soaked corpse of the unfortunate woman!
Rubbed his eyes, and shadow is not disappeared!
Deliver us, Lord, to me those memories!

"A story about a dead woman"
Mixed Media (Graphical/Poetry)
First impressions: Creepy, mysterious, watching me.
The dark and desaturated nature of the graphic conveys a sense of disconnection from the world and a lack of life, reinforcing the isolation wrought throughout the poem.
The shadows conceal most of the figure, who exists primarily as a set of eyes. This emphasizes the mysterious nature of the dead woman, and her inhumanity via the distortion and corruption of those eyes.
The paranoia is enhanced by the focus on her eyes, showing her soullessness, and her steady gaze symbolizes the relentlessness of her pursuit.
Overall, I feel the artist intended to impart a feeling of disquietude and outright fear.
The course chosen to do this is not the most innovative, but the approach is rarer, and synchronizing the two forms of media is more complex than a single medium method.
It pays off with a greater emotional weight.
As a final note, whether or not it's intentional, the broken nature of the language delivers the prose with an intense rushed or panicked feeling that contributes to the piece.

Like a glimpse into our larger reality, the true misery of the human condition, that includes pain and death. We want to escape from those toughts, we try to forget, but her eyes are there, screaming our horrible fate to us. Suddenly, we see that horrible vision, right in front of us. Such a vision makes us spin into another state of counsciousness, forcing us to dissociate from our futile wishes and preoccupations, trying to find the strenght to bear the truth about our ultimate destiny. Her disfigured face makes us wonder how she died, perhaps in a horrible way.

It is an horrible thing i unfortunnatly can share with you...I used to work on the Garonne and Her riverside,i saw from far floating woods that weren't floating woods for the textures and colors and smelling can not fools you at all. and floating woods do not wears clothes.
  And last july,not so far from Bordeaux,there is a party every years who gather sailors and musicians,really great during about one week of sailing and three day of absolut party.
Will do it short. It was on the july 20 of this year,it was lunch time,and will always remember that i was drinking maté and eating strawberries on the riverside,alone, when the harassing heat make me want to swim,and the tide was going up.
  Before diving,becoz of an awful smelling,fortunatly i turned the head right,and saw a grey blue black huuuge floating corpse. i didn't puked.It was floating not so fast and changed of moving direction when knocking on trees roots or things in water,as easely as a ballon even if it was so so huuge.I took my stuff,clothes and begin to walk to civilisation to tell about,for peoples with child used to eat and play at the time.
  It was someone who disappear from the 10 of july from a city 30km above from the point i discovered it,or she,exactly.

Stunning. Overly stunning. It is so realistic. I am almost speechless. 

Love the little "poem" at the end. It goes really well with the picture. 

Nicely done, Moppaa.
