Forever is over by DestinyBlue Forever is over by DestinyBlue
What do you do when the cracks come through? When what once was true is now just dust... When forever is over? 


Things we think will last forever fall apart. It's so hard, when foundations crumble, but you get to build anew from the ground up. You might not have noticed how ugly the wall really was till it's gone :)

Girl from: She's brOKen by DestinyBlue Really wanted to develop her story further, while keeping her with the 'words'. I like to think she enjoys reading. Her situation is more hopeful here, she is tackling the problem. Inspired by a real girl I saw (please read the description of 'brOKen') I send lots of love and thanks out to her. I know my 'brOKen' image has been shared a lot online and I can't help but wonder if she's seen it...

Mm, sorry it's kinda quick and not so colouful, I just liked the concept enough to finish and share :) It's a wallpaper... for reasons I'm sure you can imagine ;) heh

Sending out lots of best wishes for Christmas to all. Especially those for whom Christmas is not an easy day. Deep breath guys, just try and make the most of it :)

This piece hits hard for me in the sense of heartbreak...I recently got dumped by someone I loved so much...I thought we were going to last so long, and we didn't. I especially love this piece because to me I feel like although it may hurt, moving on and relieving yourself from the past, forgetting about forever and starting new, will eventually make you better in the end. It's better to open yourself up to the future no matter how scary than to hold onto pain. It's hard, and we all cry sometimes, but we're human, and I feel this piece, at least for me, shows that. I really love this. A lot. Amazing job. :heart:

The terrible moment of knowledge. When all the love inside us turns into pain.

i really love words within words. "brOKen", "fOreVER", "beLIEve". it's really cool overlap in meanings that can run deep

ANGER and DANGER... maybe you could do something with that.

I noticed it when I walked over a sewer that said danger but my foot covered the D and I read ANGER, which was ironic because I was walking about outside because I was fuming. XD

I really love your work. The beautiful art and relatable messages that fit perfect together... Happy I found you on dev-art !

I like this one. Here's an alternate story to it:

She was having a hard time getting over him, she was brOKen. She decided that their forever was over.
<3 it sucks I know.

This reminds me of the song Forever by Idina Menzel, it's on her album, I Stand. I highly  recommend her music as it inspires me so much. As for the art, well this kinda made me think that I'm not going to be like this forever and that thought has given me hope. Thank you.
DustyWinds Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014
Your works are so beautiful. This is thought-provoking, in the best kind of way. What DOES happen when forever ends?
flora-deer Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
Wow, so meaningful ^^ You always seem to have a clever, interesting take on everything that makes people seem to think more deeply about things. I just scrolled through your gallery, and oh my, it's very inspiring.

That's amazing and so creative~! Llama Emoji-23 (Shyness) [V1]  I was wondering, would you consider people buying a wacom tablet if they were interested in doing digital art? or is there anything else they could use to do digital art?

Hey! I really love this piece and it even inspired me to write a poem for it!!
This poem is totally based on this art... I hope you like it:

So true, people do seem to use the word forever a lot, some of them mean it (which even if they do most of the time they can't make it last) and others don't.

Pleasing to the eyes and gives meaning to the heart. Bravo

After brOKen this is my second lyric inspired by one of your pictures. I hope you like it and that it is ok, that I postet the picture together with the lyric on my homepage. I love your art.


You said we are forever,
Now the walls are falling down,
I canīt believe itīs over,
Crashing to the ground.
Your love was not forever,
A lie behind your smile,
Pretending is now over,
I was happy for a while.

I donīt want to be, broken anymore,
Donīt want it to be, like it was before,
Want to paint my life, in all the colors again,
Maybe find new love, but I donīt care when,
Want to stand on my own feet, just for a while,
And want to find new reasons, for me to smile.

My wallīs not black forever,
You could not hold me down,
The dark days they are over,
I build my life on brand new ground.
This fight will stay forever,
Have to live my whole life through,
The dark tunnel is not over,
But at the end there is light too.

I always thought, that I have to be strong,
But in the end, all my strength was far gone,
I felt weak and broken and was all alone,
Looking for my friends, but there were none,
Searching for my dreams, but they were gone too,
And only hope helped me, pushing through.

My life is not forever,
But Iīm not dying anymore,
My fall is finally over,
I found a purpose to life for.
My life is not forever,
Iīm not broken anymore,
The dark days they are over,
Iīm a lion, hear me roar!
