The Accident


apparently I need to fill out this field.

Thinking of you.

A summer dream. Violently happy.

All the love... Absorbed in you, Oblivious.

One time, Red light means go.

Sudden death! Passenger.

Nobody’s fault but mine.

Oh, no!

Pray for me. Save me!

Roads: Relentless Reminder.

The family. The funeral portrait.

This is heavy. To bid you farewell.

I know it's been ages since I last commented on this, but since you used both Portishead and Massive Attack in this I must once again compliment you. Nicely done!!
