The Maiden’s Raven

Everything she touches turns to dust.

Her love too often mistook for lust.

She meant no harm she meant no ill

Yet bad things happened without her will.

She stood alone her mouth shut fast

Silent  knowing  she could  cause harm that lasts.

Casting her eyes down away from those that stare

She lowered her eyelids pretending not to care.

She touched the tree it’s leaves began to fall, tears from her eyes she shed then stretched to kiss the tree, and was alarmed to find it dead. Deep sadness filled her heart, great pain threatened to rip her apart. To her knees she fell thoughts of horrors in her head did dwell. Her life was spent just two steps from hell.

Looking out across the sky her beloved raven she saw fly. Towards her he neared she begged him not to land on her, not to approach her nor come too near. “I beg you friend do not land on me, if you die I shall be so alone in this world, you see” This she said in trembling tones holding such dread it chills your very bones . He hovered lovingly in front of her and in her hands he dropped a flower.

It was a tiny but perfect rose, she held it close to her heart she waited for it to curl up and fall apart. It did not, she could not believe her eyes in fact this rose began to thrive. Falling to her knees she cried out to the darkling sky. Please help if a God there be, set my lonely heart free and help me say the words I should  instead of all the wrong words that I do, when I only truly do mean only good.

        Thank you. It is a constant battle for us artists to keep our work from being misused all over the internet. If you have to upload pictures to your blog for personal use, try websites like deviantArt. You can search for your keyword there and download the picture from the legitimate source. Then use that picture and mention a credit (link) to the original artist. Most artists don’t mind when their work isn’t modified and they are credited. A lot of (in fact I think most) artwork that you see in public domain doesn’t belong their. Like, I had no idea that my work was being posted around unwatermarked like that. It was when I google searched my images, I came across all the pages that are abusing my work.

        I do totally agree and I do now use deviant art and I alway link back to the artist. I am very careful now about what I use. Just keep on being talented!! 🙂
