Black

Black

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything…

I take a walk outside, I’m surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head, I’m spinning, oh,
I’m spinning, how quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything…

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I’ll be… yeah…

Uh huh… uh huh… ooh…

I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life,
I know you’ll be a star in somebody else’s sky,
But why, why, why can’t it be, can’t it be mine?

Aah… uuh..

I’m a little at odds with this picture, to be honest. I’ve done lots and lots of pictures depicting depression, sadness, and pain……but the difference between all of those and this one is my state of mind. Those times I was feeling that at the time I took the shot, this one is different. I’m as happy as I’ve ever been so why a sad picture now? It started simply, really……I said to Vrir……’I need to blog these boots’!. And of course, Vrir being Vrir said, ‘I have an idea’! He says that a lot, I have to say……he’s an endless supply of creativity for me. So, lo and behold….a chair with ropes and a knife appeared before me! 😀 He dashed off to real life and there I stood, looking at that chair and wondering what the hell to do with it……I loved the idea….but normally that’s not what Vrir and I do with a chair with ropes. ;D So anyway, this is what happened……the pose….the lighting…….and of course the chair, ropes and knife all ended up depicting a part of my life, as I see it.

On a happier note…….it’s Eddie Vedder time!!! Wasn’t he adorable back in ’92? He’s still a very handsome man….he’s aged very well, as they say……but man….’92 seems like a lifetime ago.

So none of that is why I’m here today, though…..I’m here to talk about the boots! This lovely pair of boots! They’re the ‘Susan’ boots from **UTOPIA@Design** and they’re incredible, to say the least. The perfect texturing and design makes them a must-have. They fit the SLink(Hourglass/Physique), Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya/Venus) mesh bodies and come with 12 colours, 16 preset colour combinations and 6 areas to customize. They’re available now at FaMESHed, which runs until the end of the month.

Here’s a hint for anyone wondering what to wear with the boots!! The ‘Vanessa Pants’ from *Just BECAUSE* come with a version to wear with boots, and they fit perfectly under these! They fit the major mesh bodies and come in 26 colours. The fit is incredible with a unique waistline that really draws the eye.

I added the ‘Jolene Top’ from Blueberry to complete the look!

The hair is ‘Char’, a past VIP group gift from TRUTH Hair.

As always, my look starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is ‘Go Away’ from Del May.

The ‘{Tied Up] Chair/fallen’ is from Sway’s.
