Lost Together

Lost Together

Strange and beautiful
Are the stars tonight
That dance around your head
In your eyes I see that perfect world
I hope that doesn’t sound too weird

And I want all the world to know
That your love’s all I need
All that I need
And if we’re lost
Then we are lost together
Yea if we’re lost
Then we are lost together

I stand before this faceless crowd
And I wonder why I bother
So much controlled by so few
Stumbling from one disaster to another

I’ve heard it all so many times before
It’s all a dream to me now
A dream to me now
And if we’re lost
Then we are lost together
Yea if we’re lost
Then we are lost together

In the silence of this whispered night
I listen only to your breath
And that second of a shooting star
Somehow it all makes sense

And I want all the world to know
That your love’s all I need
All that I need
And if we’re lost
Then we are lost together
Yea if we’re lost
Then we are lost together

Lost Together‘ ~Blue Rodeo~

The focus of this picture is the pretty tattoo which says ‘Love will set you free’ and I’ve learned is very true. I love the bird with spread wings like it’s about to take flight, people see a bird as having true freedom, like humans aren’t. But, aren’t they as limited in life as we think we are? Their daily life is finding food, raising a family and in the case of some, just trying to survive the elements is a challenge. As I sit here and look at the thermometer outside this morning I wonder how anything survives living outside in the winter here. But once daylight comes the birds all start the daily routine of feeding themselves, life goes on. Anyway, the ‘Love Bird’ tattoo is from Wild Roots and it’s available now at Bodyfy. It comes in colour and black versions, includes 3 ink tones, and is compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus the tattoo layer for the classic avatars. Bodyfy runs until February 28.

The ‘Lily’ brassiere and thong are from /erratic/.

The ‘G1113’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Submission’ set of poses from .Infiniti..

Little Talks

Little Talks

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I don’t like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I’ll walk with you, my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep, it’s keeping me awake
It’s the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can’t even dress myself
It’s killing me to see you this way

‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There’s an old voice in my head that’s holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love.

Some days I don’t know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don’t listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Hey!

You’re gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that’s left is a ghost of you.
Now we’re torn, torn, torn apart,
There’s nothing we can do
Just let me go we’ll meet again soon
Now wait, wait, wait for me
Please hang around
I’ll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don’t listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!
Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don’t listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Sometimes the most important conversation you can have is the one with yourself.

I’m wearing the ‘Shirley’ lingerie set in white from BigBeautifulDoll.

The ribbons tying my arms are from the ‘Tied Up Ribbon Gacha’ from Sallie.

You can only see the back of my head but it’s the ‘G1204’ hair from tram.

Heart Of Gold

Heart of Gold</script

I want to live
I want to give
I've been a miner for a heart of gold
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind
It's such a fine line
That keeps me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old

Keep me searching for a heart of gold
You keep me searching and I'm growing old
Keep me searching for a heart of gold
I've been a miner for a heart of gold

'Heart Of Gold‘ ~Neil Young~

I must apologize to .oyo. for this most unfortunate portrait, but given the circumstances in which it was taken, I did the best I could. 😀 While spending some quiet time at Chesapeake Bay I was camming around the sim and came upon .oyo. quietly sitting alone. I didn’t make my presence known, and I felt like I was spying on her as she at times looked bored and other times talked to herself. I focused on her and found an angle I liked and then found a windlight that seemed to put her in a nice light. And then the struggle began, while fighting lag and trying to time my picture with a nice moment in her fast moving AO, all I could capture was her in less than flattering moments. As I attempted yet again to get that perfect shot, I clicked, I froze and I crashed, without seeing what could have been the perfect shot. So, dear .oyo., wanting to post a picture of you, here is the best of the bunch, which isn’t saying much, really! Thank you for seeing the humour in it, no matter your expression you’re beautiful, and you do have a heart of gold.

Black & White

Black & White

Lonely feeling
Clouding up my empty mind

Searching for anything
But nothing’s all I find… Sometimes

Better men have crumbled
Beneath the weight of life
A Lesser man would never try
We’re stumbling along
Trying to reach the light
And we dream in colour
But we live in black and white

One day you wake up
And life has passed you by

And the only way to get it back
Is to free your mind… you might find

Better men have crumbled
Beneath the weight of life
A Lesser man would never try
We’re stumbling along
Trying to reach the light
And we dream in colour
But we live in black and white

Better men have crumbled
Beneath the weight of life
A Lesser man would never try
We’re stumbling along
Trying to reach the light
And we dream in colour
But we live in black and white
Live in black and white
Live in black and white
Live in black and white
Its alright

‘Black & White’ ~Richards/Crane feat. Myles Kennedy~

Where I live the winter feels like a very black and white world, the snow covers everything and if I look out into the horizon of prairie, there’s only a blue sky, white ground, and the greys and blacks of the trees. I love deep rich colours, so this is a little dulling of the senses, but there’s something about it’s simplicity that’s quite striking. It makes spring and summer that much more vibrant, I think. I can’t yet imagine how spring will look, all I know is today it’s winter, and I mean the deep dark frigid bowels of winter. This is the anti-hell….as hot as hell may be we’re equally cold, but that’s okay…..I close my eyes and look ahead to summer and swear I won’t complain about the heat and that I’ll enjoy every single minute of it. I just hope summer lands on a weekend this year! 😀

Today I’m showing you the ‘Fly’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio. There’s lots going on, but it’s clear and concise on it’s theme and it all ties together really well. The colours are pretty and although I’m not showing my hands, I love how the tattoo covers part of the hands like gloves. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, comes with 4 ink tones and it’s available until February 25 at the Vanity Event.

I made my first trip to frou frou, one of my favourite events that doesn’t come around often enough for my liking. I picked up the sleek and classy ‘Brenda’ set from YASUM Design. It comes in 2 pieces and is exclusive for the Maitreya mesh body. I chose the ‘Mocca’ colour to blend with the tattoo. frou frou runs until March 8.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from pose set ’96’ from [addme.].

I’m standing against the ‘Old Wall’ from .:revival:..

I Try

I Try

Games, changes, and fears
When will they go from here?
When will they stop?
I believe that fate has brought us here
And we should be together, babe
But we’re not

I play it off, but I’m dreaming of you
I’ll keep my cool, but I’m fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free
But I’m just a prisoner of your love
I may seem alright and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front, just a front

I play it off, but I’m dreaming of you
I’ll keep my cool, but I’m fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
Boy, I need your touch
Your love kisses, and such
With all my might I try
But this I can’t deny, deny

I play it off, but I’m dreaming of you
I’ll keep my cool, but I’m fiendin

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

You may not realize this, but FaMESHedX is open until February 14, so there’s still a few days to get over there and pick up some pretty things to celebrate with your person of choice! *Just BECAUSE* has the ‘Ava Lingerie’ exclusive to the event and I’m showing you just a portion of what this set includes. I’ve taken it down to just the bra and panties, the on/off toggles on the skirt and chains make it really versatile. There’s 26 colours and 6 metals to make it your own. Once FaMESHedX is closed the ‘Ava Lingerie’ set will be available at the JB main store.

I’m using a really expressive bento pose from CKEY Poses here. It’s from the ‘Energy’ set which contains 6 versatile poses that show a range of motion and emotion. Drop in at the new CKEY Poses main store or shop on Market Place, there’s lots of couples, male and female poses for pretty much any situation you might want to create! Remember to sort your Market Place page by newest to oldest to see whats new and exciting! Happy posing. 😀

My favourite hair is ‘G1204’ from tram.

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