Tam LinThe snap of a stemTam Lin by iceladydea
a blood red rose
has summoned the handsome man
from beyond the mortal veil
'Why do you call to me, fair maiden?'
He whispers in Janet's ear
his enchanted eyes to see one last sunrise,
his blood to be spilled as a tithe
as red as the broken rose,
a sacrifice for hell,
his only hope is for the strength of love
to protect him from harm,
but all he loves has faded away,
by the flow of time.
"I've come to save you, handsome youth!"
she whispers back to Tam Lin,
her heart breaking for his grisly fate,
knowing that she alone can save his life,
that she is all that stands
between his soul and endless flames,
her blue eyes promising to love him
no matter how winding and dark
the road ahead of them may grow,
she will hold him tight to her,
and never let go.
I like drawing just as much as I love toe socks, chocolate, and ostriches, if not more. And that's saying a lot.
I love reading; my favorite genre is fantasy, but I also like historical fiction, sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, and all that fun stuff.
I enjoy a good game, currently battling addiction with Torchlight 2 and considering trying out Guildwars 2.
I don't really know what else to put here, so until I get inspired, here's a picture of an invisible flamingo eating an invisible cookie:
