Astral Romance by penguin-chilli Astral Romance by penguin-chilli
‘A Nocturnal Concerto
Candlelight Whispers Me Where To Go
Hymn Of Gathering Stars As My Guide
As I Wander On This Path Of The Night

Embroidery Of The Stars
Undress My Feelings For This Earth
Send Me Your Salva To Heal My Scars
And Let This Nakedness Be My Birth

Macrocosm Poured Its Powers On Me
And The Hopes Of This World I Now Must Leave
The Nightwish I Sent You Centuries Ago
Has Been Heard By Those Who Dwelled In A Woe

The Distance Of Our Bridal Bed
Await For Me To Be Dead
Dust Of The Galaxies Take My Hand
Lead Me To My Beloved's Land

"The Constant Longing For Your Touch
This Bitter Ocean Of Hatred And Pain
This Loneliness I Need To Be Who I Am"

"The Oceans Are Alone As I
Somebody Take Away This Gift Of Mine
No Charisma For The Beast! But Still I Love You Forevermore"

"Come To Me
Deliver Me From Evil
And From All The Days Of The Earth"

No Last Words To Say
Only Memories Remain
A Farewell Then, My Path Goes Forever On...’

Astral Romance - Nightwish


-Two lovers who can only hope that death will bring them both together again…
... years and years trying to connect with each other through two different realms-

This is my entry for the ‘Inner Visions’ Contest by :iconro-stock: and I have to say, I have never fussed over a piece of work more than I did with this piece and I think it paid off :D at least I hope it did :D This was greatly inspired by two things - Firstly, Nightwish and their song Astral Romance(hence the title) and Secondly, the story of The Phantom Of The Opera

The Message?

...There Is Nothing More Eternal Than Love,
Nothing can stop Love,
It Still Exists,
Even In death…


Many thanks to:
