Wish I Could Fly by CelticBotan Wish I Could Fly by CelticBotan
My original character, Melissa. More art featuring her in my gallery: [link]

Halfway through the night
I wake up in a dream
Echoes in my head
Make every whisper turn into a scream

I dreamed I could fly
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following you
Over the trees
Subways and cars
I'd try to find out
Who you really are

In the middle of the night
Cool sweatin' in my bed
Got the windows open wide
Thinkin' about all the things you said

I wish I could fly
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following you
I'd fly over rooftops
The great boulevards
To try to find out
Who you really are,
Who you really are

I wish I could fly now
Wish I could fly now

I wish I could fly
Around and around
Over this town
The dirt on the ground
I'd follow your course
Of doors left ajar
To try to find out
Who you really are
Who you really are...

("WISH I COULD FLY", by Roxette)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No meio da noite,
Eu acordo num sonho.
Ecos na minha cabeça
Fazem cada sussurro se transformar num grito

Eu sonhei que podia voar,
Lá fora no azul,
Sobre esta cidade.
Seguindo você,
Sobre as árvores,
Metrôs e carros.
Eu tentaria descobrir
Quem você realmente é

No meio da noite
Suor frio na minha cama.
Estavam as janelas bem abertas
Pensando em todas as coisas que você disse.

Eu queria poder voar,
Lá fora no azul,
Sobre esta cidade.
Seguindo você,
Eu voaria sobre os telhados,
As grandes avenidas,
Para tentar descobrir
Quem você realmente é,
Quem você realmente é

Eu queria poder voar agora
Eu queria poder voar agora

Eu queria poder voar
Por aí ao redor,
Sobre esta cidade,
Sobre a sujeira no chão.
Eu seguiria seu caminho
De portas deixadas entreabertas,
Para tentar descobrir
Quem você realmente é,
Quem você realmente é...

("WISH I COULD FLY", by Roxette)

(I really like her hair)
You show emotions clearly through tense body language. Her distraught appearance paired with the thrown bedsheets makes us curious about what she's been through. This is fantastic. : )

Melissa feels like something is lacking in her life, that something is just missing - you probably know the feeling, like I do and everybody else who like this piece, I think that's why it's one of my most popular pieces recently, people just can see themselves in her place and I love this so much, being able to reach you guys this way, on my own way, and with Melissa's own way =)

Thank you so much, dear!
I'm really happy you like it! :hug::hug:

Amazing, the raw emotion in this piece is just staggering!
Not a single line is out of place, and the pose is very emotive. The disheveled hair, the tears running down the hand...every detail just emphasizes the message of this piece. Amazing work, as always! :D
