Dead in my Mind

Hmmm you may be thinking - what has happened to my sparkles?! But this picture by larafairie at deviant art really caught my attention. It sums up how I sometimes feel... Not often, but sometimes. She says about the picture:

It basically describes how I have been feeling. That silent gaze - even though something as beautiful as the butterfly comes my way - my feelings are unchanged and are deep in thought. The mask describes how I've tried to hide myself from the world, when I hide I feel better in myself, no one can judge me and I can't hurt anyone.
Some pretty powerful stuff - check out the rest of her work - it's pretty amazing too.
