A Thousand Years by cyan-fox A Thousand Years by cyan-fox
Please :+fav: or comment if you like it.
Make me happier : D

A thousand years, a thousand more
A thousand times a million doors to eternity.
I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand times
An endless turning stairway climbs
To a tower of souls.
If it takes another thousand years, a thousand wars,
The towers rise to numberless floors in space.
I could shed another million tears, a million breaths,
A million names but only one truth to face.

A million roads, a million fears
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
I could speak a million lies, a million songs,
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time.
But if there was a single truth, a single light,
A single thought, a singular touch of grace...
Then following this single point, this single flame,
This single haunted memory of your face...
I still love you
I still want you,
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head...

I may be numberless, I may be innocent
I may know many things, I may be ignorant
Or I could ride with kings and conquer many lands
Or win this world at cards and let it slip my hands
I could be cannon food, destroyed a thousand times
Reborn as fortune's child to judge another's crimes
Or wear this pilgrim's cloak, or be a common thief.
I've kept this single faith, I have but one belief

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head
On and on the mysteries unwind themselves,
Eternities still unsaid
'Til you love me...

The colours you used are very expressive. I don't much care for Trancy or Claude but you really make me want to change my mind with this wonderfully depicted picture. I love water colour pictures! It looks like pastels a little bit. You fooled me!

You're welcome. I am not sure I like boys who shove their fingers into their maid's eye sockets and throw crap everywhere. Alois is an ungrateful prig in my eyes. He always wants what he cannot have.
Claude is in it to get a good soul so whatevs. He should ditch Alois! Bit they are cute together! I'll give them that^^

I :heart: that you've created such a gorgeous palette through the use of traditional media. The soft lighting on their faces enhances the mood, too.
