Sloom

Sloom

The sea said goodbye to the shore so the sun wouldn’t notice
The seaweed that wrapped its arms around you

The carpet on my cheek feels like a forest
And I run through the tall trees with your hand chasing me

The books that I keep by my bed are full of your stories
That I drew up from a little dream of mine, a little nightmare of yours

To be asked to take this plunge, to forgive and forget
And be the better man, to be a better man, to be a better man

So love me mother, and love me father, and love my sister as well

The cat’s silhouette as big as a monster in this concrete jungle
With street lights hanging their heads

So make all your last demands for I will forsake you
And I’ll meet your eyes for the very first time, for the very last

So love me mother, and love me father, and love my sister as well
So love me mother, and love me father, and love my brother as well
So love me mother, and love me father, and love my sister as well
So love me mother, and love me father, and love my brother as well

I met a man today and he smiled back at me
Now there are thoughts like these that keep me on my feet, that keep me on my feet

Not Afraid Anymore

Not Afraid Anymore

I am not afraid anymore
Standing in the eye of the storm
Ready to face this, dying to taste this, sick sweet warmth
I am not afraid anymore
I want what you got in store
I’m ready to feed now, get in your seat now

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
‘Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no

No no no
No no no
No no no
No no no

I am not ashamed anymore
I want something so impure
You better impress now, watching my dress now fall to the floor
Crawling underneath my skin, sweet talk with a hint of sin
Begging you to take me
Devil underneath your grin, sweet thing, but she play to win, heaven gonna hate me

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
‘Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no

Crawling underneath my skin, sweet talk with a hint of sin
Begging you to take me
Devil underneath your grin, sweet thing, bet you play to win, heaven gonna hate me

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
‘Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no

Hello
How do you feel?
What does that mean?
What does that mean?
Hi
I guess I feel high
Cold sweat
Dripping down
My body

Are you trying to tell me something with your eyes?
All I wanna do now is lay down and die
If you’re gonna do it
You better do it right
But my heart won’t stop swelling

I’ve been a huge fan of *Just BECAUSE* for a lot of years, not as many as JB has been on the grid, but close! The one thing that has always been true is that each piece of clothing is timeless. I can take anything from my JB folder, regardless of it’s age, and look great! I’m wearing then ‘Daphne Top’ here, and it’s long sleeves and very short cropped hem make this lots of fun. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique/Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and it comes in 26 colours plus a print pack of love heart phrases.

The ‘J0116a’ hair is from tram and available at Collabor88.

I’m at -Lost Lagoon- and using a pose from set 66 by SAPA.

Be As You Are

Be As You Are

Virginia Woolf and poetry
No one seemed to notice me
Being young was getting so old
Cheap beer and cigarettes
Life was like a movie set
And I seemed to be given no role

But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon’ understand
So at age 18
I cried to my mother
And she told me, “young man”

“There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
Life is not always a comfortable ride
Everybody’s got scars that they hide
And everybody plays the fool sometimes, yeah
Just be as you are”

They played me on the radio
And everything was changing, so
I thought I was all the way grown
But I can still remember in that cold November
When I realized I’m all alone

But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon’ understand
So at age 22
I cried to my mother
And she told me, “young man”

“There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
It doesn’t matter if you become some star
Life is better when you open your heart
You don’t always have to act so hard, no
Just be as you are”

If I’m speaking truthfully
I’m not who I used to be
And I know some people might laugh
‘Cause my music doesn’t sound the same
And my head’s no longer shaved
I’m worried if I’m on the right path

But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon’ understand
So at age 26
I spoke to my mother
And she told me, “young man”

“There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don’t always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
It doesn’t matter if you become some star
Life is better when you open your heart
You don’t always have to act so hard, no
Just be as you are”

Be as you are

Be As You Are‘ ~Mike Posner~

How’s everyone doing today? It’s Saturday and half of February is gone, I know I’ve said it before…..but where the heck does time go? I’m really excited to say that Vrir and I have finished the photographs for our upcoming exhibit at Attention Gallery, we’ve been busy with this project for awhile and I think it’s shaped up nicely. It’s all new work for both of us so I hope everyone likes it. I’ll fill you all in on the opening day and time of the festivities when it’s finalized.

This is a picture I took while I was just sitting around…….looking all sexy. 😀

Midnight Dove

Midnight Dove

Midnight dove
Why do you wander
On through clouded skies?
There must be a glimpse
Of hope in sight
Spread your wings
And take to flight
Leave the past behind
The dawn will birth
A brand new light

So fly on
And never
Look back from where you came
The sky opens up
And it’s calling out your name
Cause all you got is all
All you got is all
All that you need

I found myself
Found myself
Amongst the thorns and weeds
You found yourself
Found yourself
Amongst the beautiful trees
We’re not the same
No we’re not the same
No we’re not the same
No we’re not the same

Cause I’ve gotta blow like the wind
Flow like the sea
Deep down inside of
Every part of me
My heart’s been achin’
For the freedom
To stretch out my wings

Now with every move I make
And every breath I take
My mind’s been worrying
About what’s at stake
But I just gotta let them go
With the wind

Oh, let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go
With the wind
Let it all go
Let it all go
Let it all go…

Midnight dove
Why do you wander on?
