Black Roses by cemac Black Roses by cemac

There are times when we feel unable to change the path our life is taking, trapped in a web of circumstances beyond our control and the key to our happiness seems always to be just out of reach. Nothing is as certain as change and as there are changes for the worse, there will also be changes for the better and the key to happiness begins with positive thinking.

I dedicate 'Ten Black Roses' to SandraPascuini and Mirencity. To Sandra for her support and for being a very special and kind deviant artist and to Mirencity also for her support and kindness and for demonstrating the power of positive thinking. Thank you both :heart:


A closeup of the details is here [link]

Edit 28/01/10: Fixed foot, water, brightened candle and key, added hilights to skull and hourglass and more texture to shadows.

Inspired by:
TEN BLACK ROSES
[link]
Life is like a boat in the bottle
Try to sail, You can't with no air
Day by day it only gets harder
Try to scream but nobody cares
Through the glass you see the same faces
Hear their voices fade like they drown
When your life's a boat in a bottle
You're surrounded, drifting alone.
Don't leave me now
Stay another day
With me.
When you're sad, and no one knows it
I'll send you black roses
When your heart's dark and frozen
I'll send you black roses.
Far away we wait for each other
I'm still on that road to nowhere
Kiss yourself for me in the mirror
Tie a black rose into your hair.
Don't lose your faith
Share another night
With me.
When you're sad and no-one knows it
I'll send you black roses
When your heart's dark and frozen
I'll send you black roses.
Ten black roses
Ten black roses.
Life is like a boat in the bottle
Try to sail, you can't with no air
Day by day it only gets harder
Try to scream but nobody cares.
When you're sad, and no-one knows it
I'll send you black roses
When your heart's dark and frozen
I'll send you black roses.
Ten black roses.

Thank you very much Barbara :tighthug: I am fine where I live although it has been very wet, which has caused phone and Internet connection problems. Such a small thing in comparison to what so many families are going through. :heart:

:fingerscrossed: me too :nod: Not getting much better here, heavy rains and flooding but at the end of the street and it didn't last too long. I don't understand it! We are in the middle of a drought, it hasn't stopped raining but our dams barely rise. It is obvious that the governments must have put the dams in the wrong place. At least no bushfires near me this year but in other states they are experiencing this. <sigh>

It's scary how threatening water and fire has become in recent years. In recent years the tragedies caused by fire and water have become far to frequent.

I can not believe how far you have come in the last few years. Absolutely astonishing how you have mastered photoshop and beyond. Amazing picture Coral. I can't praise it or you enough. I hope you are doing well and my thoughts are with you even now. :huggle:

Thank you sweetie :hug: Sooooo busy :( I am helping to clean and remove everything from the house of an elderly relative. She was an obsessive shopper and hoarder and I am washing and folding everything worth saving to give to charity. So far around 120 towells and I can't begin to count the sheets, doileys, pillowcases, quilt covers etcetera. Almost 200 cakes of soap and 12kg of sugar and an unbelievable amount of stockings and underwear had to be binned. Hundreds of clothing articles still with the labels on them to be transported. I have a 90% dust allergy and get allergic conjuntivitis and chronic asthma and can't wait until it is all finished. Two weeks so far and at least the same again :(
