Lonely Day

Lonely Day

Such a lonely day
And it’s mine
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Should be banned
It’s a day that I can’t stand

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life

Such a lonely day
Shouldn’t exist
It’s a day that I’ll never miss
Such a lonely day
And it’s mine
The most loneliest day of my life

And if you go, I wanna go with you
And if you die, I wanna die with you

Take your hand and walk away

The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life
The most loneliest day of my life
Life

Such a lonely day
And it’s mine
It’s a day that I’m glad I survived

Lonely Day‘ ~System Of A Down~

I have to admit today does feel like a lonely day, fall has deteriorated into a brown and grey winter look, even though the snow we had a couple weeks ago is gone. I look ahead to winter and even though I need alone time and feel no need to be among people at any time, the energy of the world in this time of Covid takes a toll on a person. I’m going to fight it all I can, I’ll work to keep my mind and body active, not dwell on the things I can’t change and embrace fully all the good things in my life…..there’s so much that’s good. It’s not an easy time for highly sensitive people or empaths…….the negative energy of the turmoil and chaos in todays society can be a burden and leave a person exhausted. So, this is the time to focus on your own health, inner peace, and keeping the bad in the world at bay. It’s hard to not be crushed by the weight of the world, but we have to persevere…..if we can’t look after ourselves we can do little to do our part in helping others and the world. That sounds a little preachy I will admit, especially after so long without writing anything. But, I write it for my own benefit mainly, to remember all of this when the easy path is to try to forget I exist.

Today I’m showing you the newest release from *Just BECAUSE* which is available now at ~uber~. The ‘Lili Gown’ is perfectly detailed and the collar makes a dramatic statement. The ruffles, collar and metals are all HUD driven, along with on/off toggles for a modesty top(not shown here) and collar. It’s fitted for SL(Hourglass), Maitreya(Lara/Petite), Belleza(Freya), and Legacy mesh bodies. ~uber~ runs until November 22.

The ‘Lucille Set’ from Kunglers consists of earrings and necklace.

The ‘Poetry’ hair is from TRUTH Hair.

I’m at Grauland for this one.

House Of Pain

House of Pain

A little past suppertime
I’m still out on the porch step sitting on my behind,
Waiting for you.

Wondering if everything is alright.
Momma said, “Come in boy, don’t waste your time.” I said, “I’ve got time.
Well, he’ll be here soon.”

Five years old and talking to myself.
Where were you? Where’d you go?
Daddy, can’t you tell?

I’m not trying to fake it
And I ain’t the one to blame.
There’s no one home
In my house of pain.
I didn’t write these pages


And my script’s been rearranged.
No, there’s no one home
In my house of pain

Wasn’t I worth the time?
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime and all the time
I looked up to you.

I paced my room a million times.
And all I ever got was on big line, the same old lie.
How could you?

Well, I was eighteen and still talking to myself.
Where were you? Where’d you go?
Daddy can’t you tell?

I’m not trying to fake it
And I ain’t the one to blame.
There’s no one home
In my house of pain
I didn’t write these pages
And my script’s been rearranged.
No, there’s no one home
In my house of pain

And I’m alone again.

House Of Pain‘ ~Faster Pussycat~

The October round of The Liaison Collaborative has begun and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Child’s Play’ pose/prop gacha set. You’ll be playing for one of the 14 poses with props that you can use anywhere. They’re all just added to your avatar for easy posing. It’s another wonderful set with intricate bento poses perfectly matched with props that have a certain innocent creepiness to them. TLC runs until October 26.

Somebody’s Watching Me

Somebody's Watching Me

Who’s watching?
Tell me who’s watching
Who’s watching me?

I’m just an average man, with an average life
I work from nine to five; hey hell, I pay the price
All I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone, and

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I’m trying to avoid
Well, can the people on TV see me
Or am I just paranoid?

When I’m in the shower
I’m afraid to wash my hair
‘Cause I might open my eyes
And find someone standing there
People say I’m crazy
Just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of
“Psycho” too much
That’s why

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

Who’s watching me?
I don’t know anymore
Are the neighbors watching?
Who’s watching?
Well, it’s the mailman watching me
(Tell me who’s watching me)
And I don’t feel safe anymore
Oh, what a mess I wonder who’s watching me now
(Who?) the IRS?

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me it is just a dream

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me it can’t be
I always feel like somebody’s watching me

Somebody’s Watching Me‘ ~Rockwell~

You can probably guess who’s watching me, that’s Vrir standing close by at Hazardous.  I’m wearing the ‘Claire Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s a beauty.  The perfectly shaped bodice and the curve enhancing skirt, which, Annie says,  is inspired by Claire’s dress from Outlander.  It comes in 24 colours with the straps HUD driven for colour change and is fitted for the Maitreya(Lara/Petite), SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya), and Legacy mesh bodies.  It’s available now at FaMESHed.

I’m wearing the ‘Eternity’ hair from TRUTH Hair.

Life Is A Highway

Life is a Highway

Love’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate
Break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around
I loved you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hills
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down, back up again
You’re in my blood; I’m not a lonely man
There’s no load I can’t hold
Road so rough; this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah!)
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye (oh!)

There ain’t no load that I can’t hold
Road so rough, this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life Is A Highway‘ ~Tom Cochrane & Red Rider~

*Just BECAUSE* is in this round of ~uber~ and is offering the ‘Mili Top & Skirt’. It’s available with a print pack with autumn and Halloween prints, which is included with the fatpacks or separately. The top and skirt are sold individually and both are rigged to fit Maitreya(Lara/Petite), SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya), and Legacy mesh bodies.

Can’t Be Tamed

Can't Be Tamed

For those who don’t know me,
I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way,yep
24 hours a day
‘Cause I’m hot like that

Every guy, everywhere
Just gives me mad attention
Like I’m under inspection
I always get a ten,
‘Cause I’m built like that

I go through guys like money
Flyin’ out the hands
They try to change me
But they realize they can’t
And every tomorrow is a day I never plan
If you’re gonna be my man understand

I can’t be tamed
I can’t be tamed
I can’t be blamed
I can’t, can’t, I can’t, can’t be tamed
I can’t be changed
I can’t be tamed
I can’t be, can’t, I can’t be tamed

If there is a question about my intentions,
I’ll tell ya
I’m not here to sell ya
Or tell you to go to hell
(I’m not a brat like that)
I’m like a puzzle
But all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this,
We can make some magic,
I’m wrong like that

I wanna fly,
I wanna drive,
I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don’t know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know

Well I’m not a trick you play,
I’m wired a different way
I’m not a mistake,
I’m not a fake,
It’s set in my DNA
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
(I can’t be tamed)

Can’t Be Tamed‘ ~Miley Cyrus~

This pose is from the ‘Breathing Space’ set from Le Poppycock.

The ‘LoverBody’ and ‘LoverStockings’ are both from DEAD DOLL.
