About Stock (and Typography)Did you know that no matter what gallery you submit to on dA, you HAVE to credit your sources?

Her face on the canvasIn this twilight dreamI'm mourningRinglets of fire burned in memoryAs my paintbrush bleedsI'm drowningIn candlelit stains upon ivoryWith Her coffin behind meI'm weepingTears undisturbed by Her soft fingertipsThough Her ghost is with meI'm breakingMy heart into brushstrokes to revive love.
