I am currently using this amazing piece as an icon to an original instrumental score (work in progress). If you have an issue with this please let me know and I will remove it immediately. If you only knew how aptly this applies to the woman who is currently devouring my soul. Thanks. I hope between us I can hit her where it counts. aaaargh!!!

HI? WHEN I SEE THIS ARTWORK I WANTED TO WRITE POEM. I'M SORRY FOR GRAMMAR MISTAKES. SO CHECK THIS OUT!

FOR LOVE

WOULD YOU SELL YOUR SOUL FOR LOVE?

A MAN WITH UNTOUCHED HEART,
WHOSE MIND HAS NO DIFFERENCE FROM INNOCENT CHILD,
BLINDED BY TAINTED WOMAN WHO WAS HURT FOR COUNTLESS TIMES …
HIS HEART WAS BURNING ON FIRE …
FIRE WHICH GROWN FROM THE WOMAN’S BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE,
THE INNOCENT MAN SEDUCED BY THE BEAUTY …
DIRTY DESIRE BLOOMED FROM HIS PURE BODY …
BILLIONS OF SENSUAL SPARKLES EXPLODED INSIDE OF HIM …
NO MORE LOOKING BACK, HE BECOME FEARLESS,
HIS ONLY FEAR WAS LOSING HER …
BUT HE NEVER HAD HER, THE WOMAN NEVER LOVED HIM …
BUT WHO SAYS ONE SIDE LOVE ISN’T “LOVE”? …
THERE WAS LOVE SPREADING ALL OVER THE TWO OF THEM,
BUT THE WOMAN NEVER FELT IT,
ONLY ONE WHO WAS IN LOVE WOULD FEEL IT …
HE WAS DESPERATE TO DO ANYTHING TO SHARE HEAVEN WITH HER,
HE WAS READY TO SELL HIS SOUL FOR LOVE …
HE GAVE HIS ALL,
BUT “HIS ALL” WAS “HER NOTHING” …
THE POOR MAN LOST HIS HEART FOREVER …
THOUSANDS OF TEARS FROM HIS OLD SAD EYES WHERE FLOWING DOWN THE RIVER ENDLESSLY …
ABANDONED MAN WHO’S IN HELL OF DARKNESS …
NO ONE KNOWS, NO ONE CARES …
EVEN THE ANGELS FROM THE SKY DOESN’T CARE,
FORGOTTEN BY GOD … … FROZEN BY SADNESS,
HE … … … … … … . .
