Love Face by HeatherHitchman Love Face by HeatherHitchman
something emotive i guess, how love has overtaken me in the past. i dont feel like this now but, this song reminded me of it. the way love can overtake you even though its a part of who you are... like being tangled in your own hair.

"If the elephants have past lives yet are destined to always remember
It's no wonder how they scream
Like you and I they must have some temper

And I am dreaming of them on the plains
Dirtying up their beds
Watching for some sign of rain to cool their hot heads

And how dare that you send me that card when I'm doing all that I can do
You are forcing me to remember when all I want is to just forget you

If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by
All my instincts have failed me for once
I must have somehow slept the whole night

And I am dreaming of them with their kill
Tearing it all apart
Blood dripping from their lips and teeth sinking into heart

And how dare that you say you'll call
When you know I need some peace of mind
If you have to take sides with the animals
Won't you do it with one who is kind

And if the hawks in the trees need the dead
If you're living you don't stand a chance
For a time though you share the same bed
There are only two ends to this dance

You can flee with your wounds just in time or lie there as he feeds
Watching yourself ripped to shreds and laughing as you bleed

So for those of you falling in love keep it kind
Keep it good
Keep it right
Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night"

Your powerful artwork, matched with the deeply meaningful song lyrics, make for something magical. It pulls at my heartstrings - even though I've never been lost in the emotion, I have felt it and was almost overcome...wonderful artwork! :clap: :hug:

I really like this one, especially the softness of the colors. It looks almost like you did it with markers, but I'm guessing probably PS? Very nice, either way :)

Oh! Tch - silly! She was a nymph in a Greek myth. Basically, Zeus (king of the Greek gods and god of thunder, famous for his extramarital affairs) was having a fling with one of her friends, and when Hera (wife of Zeus, goddess of marriage and extremely jealous of her husband's lovers) got suspicious and came to catch her husband and his lover out, Echo attempted to cover for them by chattering inanely. When Hera found that Echo had tried to protect her friend and Zeus, she became enraged and cursed Echo. Echo lost her ability to talk, except that she could repeat the last few words a person said to her. So time went on, and one day, Echo bumped into an incredibly handsome young man in the forest named Narcissus and fell madly in love with him. If I remember correctly, he at first tried to be something like polite to her, but soon got extremely irritated with having the last few words he said repeated at him and told Echo to go away. Echo died of a broken heart, and now only her voice can be heard sometimes, repeating the last few words a person says. Meanwhile, either Aphrodite, goddess of love, or Nemesis, goddess of retribution, became angry with Narcissus at Echo's fate and cursed him. He spotted his reflection in a lake one day, fell in love with it, wasted away pining for it, and became the flower we now know as narcissus. His name is also the root of the word 'narcissism'. :D

Briefly in a poem, I'm not sure of the title... but I always saw her as dark haired after reading it.

Well, she is Greek, so dark hair makes sense!

:giggle: Me too! I think the main reason she reminds me of Echo is that she made me think of a wood nymph, and there are so few stories about wood nymphs actually being in love (usually they're being persued by gods and are not particularly happy about it) that I thought of Echo, even though her story doesn't quite fit. :giggle:
