TCN - Whispers by thiscatharticnail TCN - Whispers by thiscatharticnail
the stock is from ~mcismowski-stock (big rose) ~jimfear (BG), ~zommy (laying rose stems), and *ladygekko (rose petals). the dead roses (not the stems) are my own pictures.

i have re-re-re-re-re-rewritten this song god knows how many times until i came up with a version i'm happy with.

it's actually done with a chorus and verse in mind (a first for me)
but i like it anyway

hope you like it!


so sad and wilting, like a rose
bending away from the light it needs to grow
frightened at the thought of heaven
a shadow blooms and saturates her weak-willed heart

whispers echo in my mind
reminding me of all the things I've left behind
the afterimage of confessions
reverberating in my eyes, and coloring everything i see

the fractured thoughts of a promised gift
and the unavoidable cliche, a fall from grace
the love between us should have lifted her
but nine day falls are hard to break

and everytime i close my eyes
im reminded of the chance
that maybe i am still unfinished with this
and the possibility
that sacrifice is vain
and just a means to a selfish end

that i can be finished with this

and then the hope for change comes calling
spreading wide and warm, inviting me
to wrap myself inside the folds
of another young and beautifully stable rose

a gentle smile to comfort me
and a warm embrace to sever my dependence
on a lost cause

and so i throw myself inside
this desire that i'll find
my former self within this passionate rose
just to rekindle the flame
of the faith i used to have
and the will to let myself love again

but try as i will i cant bring myself
to start anew and reborn

since everytime i close my eyes
those whispers hold my thoughts
causing me to shy away from what i must do
even though it's what i want
i cannot open up
and let this rose plant its roots inside my heart

all this so i can forget my history

but in the end
that is all the strength i have
to stand back up when i fall down

and so i draw back in myself
unable to let go and unwilling to grow
becoming indifferent to my loneliness
anchored by the gravity of undying hope
