Rose without a thorn

Standard
Rose without a thorn

Are you like the others, so quick to judge
And for this the queen must fall
Was it my heart that doth betrayed me
‘Cause I loved more than one man?

I died a queen, and they said I would have rather died the wife of another. I’m not sure what I would have rather died, or lived, or dreamt. I died before my bones were even fully grown, and all my dreams fell with the thump of the axe on my neck. But my dreams were never truly mine. “Non autre volonté que la sienne“, no other will but the king’s.

My inspiration today is the tragedy of Catherine Howard, fifth wife of the infamous Henry VIII. Some say her terrified ghost still runs through Hampton Court, as she did the day of her arrest (the day after Halloween). Here she wears the Belladonna dress by Dreaming Thicket, one of the new “branches” of the store that was Anachron. You can still find it for a few more days at We  RP.

Her lovely face is my new Liva skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the Cosmetic Fair. I chose one of the newest tones created by Izara, called “Cloud”. Her lovely tiara is the Tiara of the Mist, by Zuri Jewelry.

Truth within the writings of a letter
Signed and sealed poor Catherine Howard’s fate…

I died a queen, and I can’t remember how it felt to be a child. All I ever was, was someone else’s desire, and a pawn. I would like to curse you all, I would curse Mannox and his perverted hands on my 13 year-old body, Dereham and his husband/wife game when I finally thought I was free. I would curse the rotten old black-hearted king who sent me to die… but I couldn’t even do that. Culpepper was right. I may have been, indeed, a little sweet fool.
