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.

All that was me is gone

Standard
All that was me is gone

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lass that’s gone!

He calls me his queen, and his love, and he pretends not to hear me crying myself to sleep every night. My voice is raw from calling out my sweet mother’s name, then every god in Olympus, and any hero who could come to my rescue. My eyes are cloudy from the gloom and the permanent darkness of the underworld, this dreadful cage where I must now dwell.

My disheartened Persephone is wearing the beautiful “Spirit of Hope” gown, a lovely design by Silvan Moon, created exclusively for Gotham Island, a wonderful fundraiser event. The proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can find this and more until October 31st.

Persephone’s lovely face is the beautiful Lisa skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the current round of eBento. I chose the freckled version in this warm walnut tone. The jewelry set I wear is from the Sugar Drop collection, one of Zuri Jewelry’s latest creations, combined with an adorable Zahra floral crown, fit for the daughter of Demeter.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

The love-child of the Spring

Standard
The love-child of the Spring

The missel-thrush has frighted from the glade,
One pale narcissus loiters fearfully
Close to a shadowy nook, where half afraid
Of their own loveliness some violets lie
That will not look the gold sun in the face

The feeling of a quiet afternoon under an unblemished blue sky, the warm breeze playing with the folds of silks on the skin…
