Artistry

Artistry

I let every thought thread a weft of yarn
Weaving through the warps, a tapestry of us

If I make my arms, the home you seek
If I sway my brush, would I capture thee?
If I hang your scars, in a gallery
As a work of artistry

May I clear your slate and wipe your conscience
Lay it on another shelf
I’ll be anything you ever ask
I’ll take your memories upon myself
If you keep my thoughts and thieve my wisdom
I will find another shell
I don’t ever want to be the selfish reason
You don’t ever find yourself

I felt every thought claw the strands apart
Weaving into knots, a travesty of us

If I stay my arms, and I pull your sleeve
If I snap my brush, would you trust in me?
If I trace your scars, with the broken piece
As a work of artistry

May I clear your slate and wipe your conscience
Lay it on another shelf
I’ll be anything you ever ask
I’ll take your memories upon myself
If you keep my thoughts and thieve my wisdom
I will find another shell
I don’t ever want to be the selfish reason
You don’t ever find yourself

Watching the needle thread through every pore
She told me shading made everything more
Beautiful but I don’t see it at all
I’m more deranged than before
Standing in paints as it pools on the ground
Colours of empathy blending with doubt
Witnessing everything melting around
Until I drown

May I clear your slate and wipe your conscience
Lay it on another shelf
I’ll be anything you ever ask
I’ll take your memories upon myself
If you keep my thoughts and thieve my wisdom
I will find another shell
I don’t ever want to be the selfish reason
You don’t ever find yourself

Lonely Looking Sky

Lonely Looking Sky

Lonely looking sky, lonely sky
Lonely looking sky
And bein’ lonely
Makes you wonder why
Makes you wonder why
Lonely looking sky
Lonely looking sky
Lonely looking sky

Lonely looking night, lonely night,
Lonely looking night
And bein’ lonely
Never made it right
Never made it right
Lonely looking night
Lonely looking night
Lonely looking night

Sleep, we sleep
For we may dream
While we may
Dream we dream
For we may wake
One more day, one more day

Glory looking day
Glory day, Glory looking day
And all it’s glory
Told a simple way
Behold it if you may
Glory looking day
Glory looking day
On lonely looking sky

Lonely Looking Sky‘ ~Neil Diamond~

I’m safe at home, but even for an extreme introvert like I am, it’s getting a little old. But there’s no way I’m venturing out unless it’s absolutely necessary, so I spend a lot of time getting lost in a book. It’s the perfect escape in these troubled times. Please stay home, everyone…..be good to each other…..and stay safe.

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Booklovers’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

The Times They Are A-Changin

The Times They Are A-Changin

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

The Times They Are A-Changin‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

More relevant now than ever before.

Grauland has undergone another change…….and it’s one of Jim’s best designs.

Times Like These

Times Like These

I—I’m a one-way motorway
I’m the road that drives away
Follows you back home

I—I’m a street light shining
I’m a white light blinding bright
Burning off and on

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

I—I’m a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight

But I—I’m a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

There’s 2 new main store releases at *Just BECAUSE* and they’re super cute and perfect for the coming spring weather, if you’re not in my part of the world. Although spring has officially arrived, no one has told Mother Nature that yet. But, about the new stuff……the ‘Dannicka Sweater and Sweatpants’ make a cute little outfit with the casual style and perfect detailing. They’re sold separately and both are fitted for the ‘Belleza(Freya), Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique). and Legacy mesh bodies. The sweater has 3 areas to customize and the sweatpants have two…..both come in 24 pretty colours.

The ‘Twinkle Balloon’ is from PACK and comes with a decor and a holdable version.

The’ G1224′ hair is from tram.

I stopped in at Authors Point for this picture.

I’ll Wait

I'll Wait

You say that I’m a dreamer
You always let me be myself
That’s just what you do, man
When you love someone, you love someone

When I’m feeling worthless
You’re always there to help me out
That’s just what you do, man
When you love someone, you love someone

You know that I will be the light
To always be there at your side
I just wanna tell you why
And this is how it goes

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

Well, you know I get so lonely
But with you I never feel alone
I guess that’s how it is, man
When you love someone, you love someone

You know I’m out here working
You know I do it all for you
Nobody’s perfect, they say

You know that I will be the light
To always be there at your side
I just wanna tell you why
And this is how it goes

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

I’ll change my habits just to show I care
I’ll face my demons just to show I’m there
I’ll be with you till my final days
I’ll change my habits just to show I care
I’ll face my demons just to show I’m there
I’ll be with you till my final days

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

I’ll Wait‘ ~The Strumbellas~
