Smoke

I thought, I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around and he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry

Well, you couldn't be that man I adored
You don't seem to know
Seem to care what your heart is for
But I don't know him anymore

There's nothing where he used to lie
The conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor

Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn
You're a little late, I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right
Should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light

It crawled beneath my veins
And now I don't care, I had no luck
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can touch, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor

Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn
You're a little late, I'm already torn, torn

So i had originally planned to do a really colourful shot in the woods with a load of colour smoke i had planned on making myself, however nowhere has the main ingredient so i had to change the plan. I so wish i had planned in advance as then i could have ordered some online. :(
Anyway i had this idea this morning whilst doodling ideas and did want to use a fire extinguisher as the smoke however upon reading the label it turns out the powdered smoke contains mild acid which can damage materials, and as this is my good suit i thought no chance i'm doing that now!
Wished it had more colour but i am pleased i managed to do something a little different as i did not want to do a cliche smoke shot. Just wish i had ordered those smoke bombs earlier, pants!
