This girl I know needs some shelter
She don't believe anyone can help her
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don't want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can't change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her
I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her.

First, the photo.

I like how it's zoomed in so you can see the texture on the petals. However, it seems a little washed-out at the top, on parts of the petals, and underexposed in the lower right, thought this may be part of the darkroom manipulation, whatever that is...

Also, it looks like there are JPEG artifacts in the lower right.

Second, the poem.

If you wrote it, I have this to say:
I do like the emotional challenge it describes.

One overall problem is that I can't see any way that the photo and poem are connected; but I am wondering, was it intended to be that way?

(Sorry if this is negative-sounding.)
What do you think?
