Golden Dreams

It took me a while to figure out how to make the background for this, it kept looking quite flat. And also, I'm not sure of the proper technique to make nice gradients with the brushes I use, they often end up looking too uneven.⁠


Golden Dreams⁠

“Sometimes when a heart⁠
Carries heavy golden dreams,⁠
A sudden change comes ⁠
And, like an arrow, pierces through.⁠
The gold pours out⁠
As a flood that could drown a soul⁠
While its glimmer fades⁠
And turns into rust.⁠
The same way it turns out⁠
That it was never gold,⁠
It seems those dreams⁠
Shined too bright to be true.”⁠
