Shedding the Veil Pt:2 by KassandraLeigh Shedding the Veil Pt:2 by KassandraLeigh
5. Nocturnal Embrace

[Lyrics by: Vittorio Manara / Music by: Macbeth]

Light is disappearing, dark
is closing in upon me,
In front of my eyes a
new sunset,
another day is dying
between my arms
and the night rises
caressing my face.
A nocturnal embrace holds
me to itself
like two lovers, escaping
from glances
Lost in the darkness,
surrounded by silence,
through the oceans of time,
we'll fly away.
And the stars in the sky
will look us
while the wind will blow
among the last leaves,
my soul will dance lighted
by a pale moon and an
overture will accompany
my steps.

wonderful, as always.

love the texture on the skirt... :+fav: for that alone, not to mention the lovely surroundings... and of course the inimitable you.

the colors are also excellent, although I might have done it in a sepia-tone style, but that's my personal preference.

I love your expression here... it's got either that "would you get over here and show me some affection.. dammit!" or that "What the hades are you doing?" look. I really like your dress... or is it your corset thingy and a skirt? In any case it's really good looking. The flowers are an interesting touch too.

This is good... keep up the great work Trance!

That's a good one. How pretty. I like the light and colors. There is something unusal about the lighting and the way it reflects off that skirt that is eye appealing. Of course, I know it's the fabric and that's the way it comes out on camera, but it's still interesting.

Okay... do you ever do anything bad? LOL... I love this one! Red is my fav color! All my cloths are either black, gray or red! You always have such great fabrics and clothing! You rock! I am partial to crush fabrics myself! What kind of art class(s) do you teach? Sorry your birthday was kinda a drag... we all have those days... at least you have a ton of people here that think you are the best! :hug: My 18th birthday was like that, my mom and my friend amanda were the only people that remembered. Oh well...
