Elevation



The church bells rang
and the cardinals flew

An altar of blood 
keeping the two

Safe across the 

city's walls

Until their final 

dying fall.

And later, the violin 
player starts 

and fails
to make a woman

from gut and hair,
of air and longing

but I'll give him points
for trying.

For Love,
what is deeper

than Death
but You? 

And how weak the word
that wants Your flesh

but bends before
such broken bread.

trying to make a woman. The gist of many a tale.

Being on opposite sides trying to preserve life to make life but failing...only the sound of the violin can aid the will to live intil the church bells ring again

If I had a dive for every point I get for trying... :P

This reminds me, I have updates to share with you... mail you soon.

Speaking of violin.. from one of my favourite anime (the one that features Captain Heena) a beautiful, beautiful piece - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5RSkiCd6Yk

It makes one cry if you watch it in context of the show.

To make a woman out of sound, that is such a beautiful expression that it hurts!

Charles, yep.

Mark, if music be the food of love, play on.

Aniket, my email inbox is impatiently tapping its foot.

And I want to learn to play the violin, if only to play that song.

Cat, you know I'm a sucker for impossible things.
