Hope is Written On Bathroom Stalls by Invoking Hope is Written On Bathroom Stalls by Invoking
It's strange how you can find the deepest, darkest secrets of people scribbled, scratched, and carved into the walls and stall doors of public bathrooms. Sadly, this is the only way a lot of people can admit how they are truly feeling, or what they are truly feeling. You're right. It is saddening.

That is why I chose to use a stall door for the background image, as a tribute to all of those who confess their feelings in secret. This is an adapted poem from my gallery. It's original title is "Stenciled Smiles on Paper Hearts" [link]. I changed titles to be more appropriate.

I used the font "ChristopherHand" for this and used the smudge tool to make the writing look like it was weathered down from age. Please let me know if this impairs the reading of the piece. Don't forget to click to full view.

I also included a tiny tribute to the woman I love, ~EmoRapunzle :iconemorapunzle:, because she is amazing and helped me so much with this concept :heart:

FB shared. While although having never physically scarred myself I know the pain and greatly appreciate the sentiment and work above. Kudos. I only wish it were larger to use as a full wallpaper for my desktop. I tried to stretch it out myself using Paint but it was too distorted to be worth it. C'est la vie.

Hello!
I really like the idea of putting the writing on a washroom door, and I love the font and how you smudged it
However, to me, it doesn't seem to fit the poem very well
I understand that you wanted to stay away from the cliche black and white and gloominess that most people put with these kinds of poems, but the lime green and orange don't quite fit with it, for me. Maybe a slightly more generic stall door? Just my opinion
The poem's beautiful, and the thought you put into the background for it is amazing
*claps*
Thank you for writing!

Text looks too smudged in my eyes. ^^; Not that I don't like this, it's beautifully tragic.

I can totally see what you're going at with this and it's really inspiring. Would it be all right if I tweaked it a little and used it to write a song?

Thank you very much <3

By 'song', do you mean an actual song with music and all, or do you mean lyrics to a song that you will post to dA?

OuO

As long as I'm given proper credit, you may adapt this to be a song. My only stipulation is that I am able to listen to the song once it is finished and inquire as to it's progress at any time and be provided with an answer in detail.

Um'kay. Thank you, I'll work on adapting it first and then the music behind it. Is that okay?
