Ghost

Ghost

I tried it once before but I didn’t get too far
I felt a lot of pain but it didn’t stop my heart
And all I really wanted was someone to give a little f*ck
But I waited there forever and nobody even looked up

I tried it once before and I think I might’ve messed up
I struggled with the veins and I guess I didn’t bleed enough
But maybe I’m alive ’cause I didn’t really wanna die
But nothing very special ever happens in my life

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be

I tried it like before and this time I made a deep cut
I thought about my friends and the way I didn’t give enough
And I should’ve told my mother ‘mom, I love you’ like a good son
But this life is overwhelming and I’m ready for the next one

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be, yeah

I tried it once again and I think I might black out
I should’ve left a letter but I had nothing to write about
My blood is all around me, I get dizzy if I stand up
The cutting part was easy but regretting it is so f*cked

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be

I tried it once again and I think I went too far
The man that I was meant to be
I cut a little deeper and the pressure stopped my heart
The man that I was meant to be
I could’ve told my mother that I love her, I’m a bad son
This life is overwhelming and I’m ready for the next one

Ghost‘ ~Badflower~

I know this is a really disturbing song on a topic that so many people want to think doesn’t exist, but mental health is something that everyone needs to be aware of, not just your own but of the people close to you. These are very troubling times for the world and now more than ever it’s important to be aware of how you’re feeling emotionally. For myself, with a lifetime of mental health struggles, I’m very aware of how I’m feeling and know when my anxiety becomes unmanageable and I start to not want to face each day it’s time to adjust what’s around me. It usually stems from taking in too much world news………I have to balance on the thin line between being aware of what’s going on and becoming too caught up in it. As an empath, I take on the emotions and energy around me easily and it’s a very slippery slope downhill when I feel the negativity, fear, frustration, and hopelessness that’s so prevalent today. So, on this Sunday morning in May I breathe deep……and make my world a little bit smaller……..the grass is growing and the trees are leafing…….most of the birds have returned from their winter vacations and the sun is shining….it doesn’t get better than this!

I’m using a pose from the free gift from SAPA Poses at The Pose Fair Market. The Pose Fair group is free to join and every store has a free gift out for you.

The ‘Mai Per Caso’ statue is from Cammino e Vivo Capovolto.

Greatest Mistake

Greatest Mistake

Sitting on the edge of another day
Waiting on the sun to rise
All that I can hear are the thoughts that you’re thinking

Making up with all of my enemies
Memories I don’t like
I’m tired of the feeling of you’re heart breaking

You were there for me, helping me get through
All my failures, my glories
I owe them all to you
You’ve been holding on, for the both of us
You have always been strong
When I am never strong enough

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

You picked me up when I was down
When I was lost you came and found me
You took the pieces of my heart when they had all broken apart

You were there for me, helping me get through
All my failures, my glories
I owe them all to you
You’ve been holding on, for the both of us
You have always been strong
When I am never strong enough

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

We’ve got to keep on keeping together
Just me and you
We’ve got keep on keeping together
If we’re going to make it through

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

Greatest Mistake‘ ~Jack Savoretti~

I’m still super excited about this, I entered to win a fatpack of the ‘Luna Lace Lingerie’ awhile back on the Tetra flickr and was so surprised when Nata Porola from Tetra sent me the complete set! I don’t often enter anything….and then when I do I get this wonderful gift……how exciting. The bralette and panties, plus a gorgeous necklace(sold separately) make up the set and as always the quality is incredible and the colour palette as gorgeous as ever! The ‘Luna’ set is available now at Collabor88.

The ‘G0127’ hair is from tram.

I’m holding the ‘Coffee on the Go’ from hive.

A Gift of a Thistle

A Gift of a Thistle

‘A Gift of a Thistle’ ~Julian Lloyd Webber-Brave Heart OST~

Just some beautiful music to go along with the picture today.

I’m wearing ‘Nevertiti’ in black from Pink Cream Pie here along with the ‘Charnel Ballet Shoe’ in cream from Azoury.

The ‘Cotton Candy’ hair is a new release by Tableau Vivant and it’s available at Collabor88. This is from the ‘reds’ pack…….always the reds for me!

The bento pose is from the ‘Leah’ set by Serendipity and I’m standing atop Stonehenge at Grauland.

Born To Die

Born To Die

Why?
Who me?
Why?

Feet don’t fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh my heart it breaks every step that I take
But I’m hoping at the gates,
They’ll tell me that you’re mine

Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or design?
I feel so alone on a Friday night
Can you make it feel like home, if I tell you you’re mine?
It’s like I told you honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh, let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I, we were born to die

Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn’t find
All the answers honey

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane

So don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why
Keep making me laugh
Let’s go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime

Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane…
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
‘Cause you and I
We were born to die

Born To Die‘ ~Lana Del Rey~

This is a perfectly depressing song on this snowy May morning. Yes…we do get snow in May, unfortunately. It’s a lovely combination of green and white right now, but I’m sure it won’t stay white for long…at least I hope not. That’s the thing about this part of the world, winter never likes to let go easily, so we get days like this as late as early June. Of course, it could be +35°C next week!

Today I’m wearing the ‘Anna Slip Dress’ from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s an older release, but anything Annie creates is timeless, and this is no exception. The simple lines and the perfect texturing make it really versatile. I’ve boosted the picture a bit so the colour’s a little darker, but the JB colour pallette is gorgeous on it’s own. It comes with solid, print, and sheer versions and the straps and heart are HUD driven for easy colour change. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique/Hourglass), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies and comes in 26 colours plus the fatpack.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

The pose is from the ‘Chloe’ set from K&S Poses.

Song of Women

Song of Women

I am bones and I am skin
I am home, where life begins
I’ve started wars, I’ve given peace
Across the ocean, I carry the seed
I’m your lover
I’m your mother
I’m your sister
I’m your daughter

When Kings fall to their knees
They sing a woman’s song
When birds scream in the trees
They sing a woman’s song
The sunrise in the east
Sings a woman’s song
Every heart that beats
Sings a woman’s song

I am fire
I am water
I am empress
I am thunder
I am flower
I am wonder
I’m the object
Of your desire
I am beauty
I am grace
I am faith

Song of Women‘ ~The HU feat. Lzzy Hale of Halestorm~

This song is truly empowering!
