Two Photos By Daniel...The Story of Belle

THE STORY OF BELLE

Belle had been a young thing
with beauty and not much sense
She decided to take a powder
instead of recommence

She left her journal open
her last thoughts for all to see
followed the powder
with a snort of strong whiskey

She barely made it to her bed
where she disrobed shaking
her pose intended to tell
restraints were her own making

Alas a too common end for many....

Nice work. The two photos tell such a story, and you've brought it together perfectly.

I love that you brought the 2 photos together it's cool seeing how similar they are! I was also going to kill her but I went another direction. So many artist's die this way...

This is one reason I don't journal. You never know when you might accidentally kick the bucket. :)

Dark but a truly fascinating take.

She sure did not have much sense. Snorting the powder followed by whiskey was fatal,bad decision!
