Ave Maria:Llena eres de Gracia by neurolepsia Ave Maria:Llena eres de Gracia by neurolepsia
This started out as a joke.
(he took the picture) and I were at the Cemetary in La Perla (San Juan, Puerto Rico), and I saw this statue of the Virgin and almost squeeled "I wanna pray with Mary!"

So I took the rosary ~abiotica sent me from Mexico (which her mother blessed, personally, I proudly add) and in my head started actually thinking, to not giggle, chanting those numbing lines I was suprised I remember after all these years...
"Ave Maria, llena eres de gracia,
el senor es contigo, benditatueresentretodaslasmujeresybenditoeselfrutodetuvientreJesus.
SantaMaria, madredeDios, ruegapornosotrospecadoresahorayenlahoredenuestramuerte
AMEN"
But the smile gives me away.


It looks conceptual enough to fit into this song.



dreams lie shattered
shards endure
now the wraiths her mind possess
like shells of precious flowers
dried out and hung with love
making eyes into frozen temples
that stale you in her gaze
so pale, so cold, so beautiful
if not clinically insane

now the decades pass unanswered,
and she prays with silent lips
sometimes she talks to angels
when she has her little fits
but you must believe in something
- sometimes that something's real
sometimes our motivations are tied
up in what we feel


so elegant, her poetry
falls from her pallid lips
she flows like icy roadways
when the wheels start to slip
and if her course lays waste, to this i pray
away to your design
her minions shall dance your dreaming eyes
and sing her fragile rhymes


Ave Maria,
just give us something
but it's lost on deafened ears;
Ave Maria,
just give us something
to ears that cannot hear.

Ave Maria,
just give us something,
but it's lost on deafened ears
Ave Maria
if God is speaking
she's the only one who hears.

Yo tmb soy gótiko y me visto igual o más loko ke tú, es una buena pieza aunke kreo ke no deberías estár riendote para más seriedad en la pik además de respetar a los katólikos, (no lo soy) pero respetar sus kreencias, no es para dibulgarlas aki, a pesar de eso es una pik interesante, SAludos
