Shadows of the Veil of Secrets by Iardacil Shadows of the Veil of Secrets by Iardacil
This is for for catching my 9000th pageview. He wanted something dark.. I hope this is dark enough.. :DThanks, friend :hug:

I can feel you how you call me,
but still I cannot come
In the shadows of the veil of secrets
we must live....
Although I can feel, that our paths
never cross again, still:
darkness merge us one
after all...

Tunnen kuidas mind sa kutsud,
aga tulla veel ei saa.
Saladuseloori varjus
peame elama.
Kuigi tundub, et me rajad
eal ei ristugi, on nii:
pimedus meid ühte liidab
lõpuks ikkagi.

Romeo ja Julia - Hele Kõre and Kristjan Kasearu

First part of those lyrics are my free translation of song in estonia.. and tha other part.. is original lyrics in estonia.. So, my estonian friends have the privilege to understand the whole meaning and power behind that song

But you all can listen it here: [link] The page is on english, you just have to chose the speed of the connection and wait little bit.. Please.. it is worth it.. the meldoy... the emotion behind that song.. you don't have to understand the lyrics.. the meldoy.. how it all sounds together...

First, if Romeo and Julia first met, they fell in love in first moment but there was no change for them to be together. This is the grief of knowing that you have met the right person but you will have never the change.. How often we all feel it? The sadness of knowing that world is against you... the grief for the world that they are blind, live in revenge and hate. In their world there is no room for love what can cross that boarder.. But Romeo and Julia know this... but no hope for them... only pain, suffer and sadness... And the lyrics express that really well - they feel the call of each other but they cannot come.. they most live in shadows, keep those things in secret..

Second, and maybe even more inspiring was the grief after Romeo has killed himself and Julia awakes.. he has gone and he will never return. And she knows so well that they will be always together. His spirit calls her to come along... to follow him to the realm of death.. and she knows she will come but this just sounds so wrong.. but yes... darkness will merge them into one and she will follow her lover's fate...

Why that kind of background? The storm.. in both of those cases, the characters are in storm.. in their soul.. they have to make decisions.. and they cannot be correct.. but what will be stronger? The call of the heart of radical thinking of the brain...

And the title came too long, again.. I planned to give the name: "Living in The Shadows of the Veil of Secrets" Will work like this too

Yesterday after I saw my friends :devfrozenrostar: stock account and those fantastic backgrounds I just wanted to make something.. So I started... the result was little different and I didn't used her background but I will, I promise.. in some new manip I will make.. her stock is just fantastic.. Go and check ~ro-stock

So.. I decided something less complicate than usual.. Not 100 layers as lately.. :S I ended up only in 40.. :D And I used that same texture I used in "Queen for a Day" and I love it.. It makes background look just fantastic.. :D and in matter of fact.. it is sand originally...

This is stunning work and fully captures pains of the heart not only in Romeo and Juliet, but other tragic love stories as well. Bravi :)
