The Tinderbox by vhm-Alex The Tinderbox by vhm-Alex
Weary from the war, I stumble into fortune
Strike a deal with a witch and cut off her head
With pockets full of gold, I journey into town
Trade my scuffed boots for bribes and burberry

Though my heart remained mute
As I fed the poor with the king's cutlery
Locked in towers behind walls, comes some divination
Where true love is promised to me

Now I live alone in this dirty old attic
And my friends have no strength to climb up the stairs

So in the dark I spark this old box of tinder
And your love is ferried to here

Dark to just one spark
And you have my heart

But as quick as you come
You're always gone so soon





COLLABORATION WITH ANDREW MAR.
THANKS TO HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN & PATRICK WOLF.

Wow, so pretty. The colors, the expression on the girl's face, the wolves, I even love the background. It looks a little like a forest in the winter.

Very Alphonse Mucha! Actually, I can probably find the same pose of a woman dripping a sheet...

I love the flow of the wolves and the spry looking colors. I love the parts that lack color and the design. For some reason I do feel like her pose is a bit immature for such wise presence and power the other parts hold, yet maybe you were going to youth. Overall, lovely, truly lovely.
