Your Heart Burned Black by the opaleye
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary:

You just lie there before me, before my canvas, while I immortalise your being - while I give your life purpose - through colour and shape. People are going to look back on this work and say, “She was important.” They will say that you had a life with meaning.

Is your life meaningful, my dear?

Here sits an artist. Before him, his subject. Where will this piece of art take them? And where have they been before? For in the future lies the past and in the past there lies no future. Follow them on their journey through time and paint, through canvas and passion.

Through life.
