the Storms inside .... by time-warrior the Storms inside .... by time-warrior
I couldn't sleep so I was working and listening to some music when I came across this song by Poets of the Fall ...

after listening to it(and crying, lol, I'm such a sap) I stopped what I was working on and had to do this piece, it just came to me ... :cuddle:

Hope you like it.
TW :peace:

Sleep[link]<---Poets Of The Fall

Hear your heartbeat
Beat a frantic pace
And it's not even seven AM
You're feeling the rush of anguish settling
You cannot help showing them in
Hurry up then
Or you'll fall behind and
They will take control of you
And you need to heal the hurt behind your eyes
Fickle words crowding your mind

So
Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in
Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within
Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in
And carry you over to a new morning

Try as you might
You try to give it up
Seems to be holding on fast
It's hand in your hand
A shadow over you
A beggar for soul in your face
Still it don't matter if you won't listen
If you won't let them follow you
You just need to heal
Make good all your lies
Move on and don't look behind

So
Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in
Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within
Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in
And carry you over to a new morning

Day after day
Fickle visions messing with your head
Fickle, vicious
Sleeping in your bed
Messing with your head
Fickle visions
Fickle, vicious:

Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in
Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within
Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in
And carry you over to a new morning

This is very poignant and beautiful. I recently read a quote the in every man there is two wolves fighting, one anger one happiness, and in the end the one that wins is the one that you feed the most. However, In my own self there is mostly saddnes, so perhaps there are three wolves :)

:aww: Thank you. I have heard this tale as well, but you make an interesting point with the third wolf, perhaps he/she is poverty. Poverty is devastating, if it were to represent the lack of a positive emotional experience ... the non-physical food we need to keep the essence of how we perceive our place in life healthy ... it would keep both of the other wolves starved letting despair eat away the desire to seek individual sustenance ... I know most people look on anger as a negative, kind of like losing before one even starts, but thats only true if it is not channeled into a positive motivation to dissolve the situation that created this response ... and happiness isn't always pristine in and of it's self, sometimes it is only a self involved state of acquisition. What I mean is, the third wolf can only exit when we can't accept there is good and bad in almost all things and I think I choose to feed the balance in between. Ugh! I know, blah, blah ... heehee, I do go on at times:D
Hmm, here's a thought, I sometimes think sadness can't be helped if you are fully alive ... actually living in the truth and not buying into fictionalized accounts of how thing really are, because that is how they should be (says who I wonder?)... it takes much strength to feel what is real, but it has it's rewards too don't forget. :hug: LOL, I will hush now.

:sun:

peace,
TW

You are very wise my friend :);) I agree whole heartedly with you, to feel and to be alive brings both the good and the bad, the black and white, the yin and yang and it does take much strength to live and to feel, plus growing older. John Mellencamp once wrote that growing old wasn't for cowards and I know just exactly what he ment :) With the continuation of life comes more pain, happiness, obstacles, and hopefully rewards. There is good and bad in most all things but one thing I have learned is that so much of what we percieve is temporary.
I really enjoy reading your thoughts!!!!!! Its no blah blah blah LOL ;)

A nice piece of photomanipulation...I like the vintage/painting feel of it. You have evoked a feel of despair which is definitely cool.

A beautiful painterly image with a vintage feel. Your interpretation of the source images is wonderful and, unlike many manipulations I've seen recently, seamless. It looks like a completely original work starting with a blank canvas. Very impressive. :rose:

Thank you, hon. I think we all have these feelings at one time or other through out our lives. :nod: So hard when they hit though ... this song has such a comforting vibe to it though, like it's gonna be alright, don't give up feeling. ^^

I love the soft focus effect the you've given the image it adds to the period feel. The title give the picture an greater depth.

time-warrior Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2010
:aww: Thank you so much, such a wonderful comment, yes I wanted it to be soft ... spontaneous,expressive in an emotional context, one where that the viewer could transpose themselves into the scene from their own experience ... either as subject or comforter etc.

I am delighted you like the title, it is definitely not one of my strengths giving my work a title, so wow! Thank you. :nod:
