Hopefully this may inspire a story and/or song and/or film.  I made it as an illustration to go along with my contribution to the 10min writing challenge #7 - CLEAN: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/883259


 


All of the material I used is in the public domain from a free stock photo website.


 


*I'm new to hitRECord, so I am a little unfamiliar here, but I am looking forward to collaborating more soon! :)

Photo I took years ago for my 35mm photography class.  Thought it would go great as cover art for my short story "The Saddest Sky in the World" about a supposed impending apocalypse.

Of Messengers and Wolves


by theserpentthecharmer:  


 


"I've sat through a thousand other sunsets in my life


They've all been beautiful but this one is for you 


It's warming the air around us while the darkness sets in


You are still alive and so am I for the time being


 


It's gotten hard for me to write and color lost its glow 


But the night took you away and left me no place else to go


You're more than a painting ever conveyed to our eyes


More beautiful than the ivory on old piano keys


I never thought the world was a stage but now I see


It was meant to display you, the unrequited, and me


 -


Crushed under the weight, a skeleton rusting at its hinges


I am worried that these wolves will take you away from me


And I'm in no condition to fend them off with my bare hands


When they're reaching for yours even though you're not there


This is where the fangs dance electric, where moonlight goes astray


-


Why don't we walk a little ways until the atlas gets changed


And a place we knew becomes a graveyard or a stage 


I barely know the sound of your name, but I'm trying


There is only so much a man can find in his own heart beating


 


Sometimes I fear it's your footsteps leaving


And I wake up to find I was always alone


I'd have asked the ocean to spare us but it owes me no favors


I guess this is love and these must be its labors"

I'm really happy with how Casa di Loops created such a perfect ambiance to complement the tone and feel of the imagery and voiceover.


 


Would love to hear what people think!  Any feedback would be much appreciated!!  And thanks for watching!

I was inspired by Tears from Heaven by brandi jeaux and The chapel of nowhere by belcath1981 and wanted to merge the two together.

Here is the shorter version of the experimental Childhood video I made using Spaceship's mix of Metaphorest's "Make Your Mind Up."

The picture of the upside down sky is a picture I took that I haven't uploaded to HitRECord yet.


*This image is in need of a tiny story....

It was really the snake inside her that scared her the most.

Jonavan was a bad boy today.


He turned into a werewolf.


 


This is a tiny story about an imaginary friend I had when I was three.  His name was Jonavan.  I wanted to find an appropriate drawing to go with the tiny story and "TOM the Rascal" was the best thing I could find that I thought would fit with my story.

Lucky was she


who got caught in the leaves


and floated on up


where Heaven should be.

I Dreamed a Dreadful Thing


 


I dreamed a dreadful thing again.


The severed limbs swam round my head.


Tidal waves crashed all around me.


And you were poisoned, ignoring me as if I were 


nothing but a leaf, floating down stream.


 


Distorted and skewed faces replaced


all the windows and shutters,


Boxing me in.


Surrounding me with devious smiles 


even though I could not see them.


 


 


-I tend to have very vivid, unimaginably scary nightmares that still stay with me after I wake.  So today, after such an occasion, instead of dwelling on the images in my mind, I decided to write, and this is what I wrote.
