Sadly, she learned too late to truly live.
For the Samhain Contest held by xgnyc ~ digital/photomanipulation entry (I wrote the epitaph, too, so it is sort of a combination entry, digital and literature.The epitaph reads:
Here I Lie Beneath this Stone.My own stock and landscape picture.
My Body is Still, My Spirit Alone.
When I did Live, My Heart was Ice Cold;
Days Filled with Frustration, Annoyance so Bold.
Not a Chance did I Take to Love and Adore,
At Death it's too Late,
True Life Comes Before.
