Painting - Souls Entwined

Reactions: 
it is actually quite sad how this painting came to be, i was sad
i call it "Souls Entwined," the sybolism is apparent
the two souls are wrapped in eachother's arms 
and
in love
entwined
within eachother
...
the world around them contrasts
like it's rejected them
they're both rejected in almost the same way
(just as the close colors suggest)
and as they embrace,
a heart is thier shape
this painting is a sign of how i long for love
how i long for my soul to be entwined with another's
The title is inspired by the song "Cyanide Sun" by H.I.M.
One of my favorites...here are the lyrics[from leoslyrics.com]
Should've known how hard it is to stop tearing each other apart

Separating souls entwined with all these labyrinthine lies


I am dead to you, a shadow doomed
My love, forever in the dark
And of all untruths the truest is you
Too close to my heart


This emptiness I've made my home
Embracing memories of dreams long gone
One last caress from the corpse of love is all I want
Underneath the cyanide sun


We've sailed the seas of grief on a raft built with our tears
Looking for a way to disappear for a moment from our deepest fears

I'll be drowning you in this river of gloom
Forever in my heart

This emptiness I've made my home

Embracing memories of dreams long gone
One last caress from the corpse of love is all I want
Underneath the cyanide sun

it makes me think of how i was feeling...but also about love and passion
"souls entwined" ...when you feel that your soul is entwined with someone else's...
you must truly just head over heels for them and you will truly never leave
it's got to be the most beautiful feeling in the world
