Tied Down

Tied Down

These days the lovers trade their places
Dancing all around each other’s chairs
I can see the numbness on their faces
Jealousy fills up their hearts in pairs
So please could I be selfish with your body?
‘Cause I don’t think I could share you with nobody

Oh when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep the tide down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh ill get you tied down, tied down

Ohh, late at night you’ll hear the screaming echo
But we all pretend we never heard the cries in the daytime
Don’t you worry my touch won’t leave you hollow
I’m never going to let you change your mind

Oh, when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep your tied down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied, ohh
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down

Don’t be afraid to leave your mark
Give me the scars to remind me
Just how good you are (how good you are)
And if your faith turns into to dark
Pull me closer and know
That it’s enough to keep you tied down

Tied Down‘ ~Jaymes Young~

Take two…….I just deleted a whole paragraph of text while struggling to write something. Some days are so easy…and other days the only words I can put together is,’ hey, how are ya?’. Today is obviously the latter! So I’ll keep it short and simple today……..hey….how are ya? 😀

I want to show you the wonderful artwork of Sandowl from Wild Roots! Her tattoos are always highly detailed and eye catching. This is the ‘Love is Kind’ tattoo and along with the incredible message, it’s perfectly placed to show perfectly to show it to the best effect! The full saying on it is, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ and it’s words to live by, because there’s just not enough love in this world. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, Omega, and classic avatars so no one’s left out!

The ‘Widowmaker’ lingerie set is from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. and it’s available at Collabor88 for a few more days, then it’ll be at the mainstore. The set is compatible with the SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and Maitreya mesh bodies and includes sheer and solid versions.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is so feminine with lots of wisps.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from set 91 from Overlow Poses.

My Immortal

My Immortal

I’m so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
‘Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face, it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
All of me… me… me…

My Immortal‘ ~Evanescence~

What do you notice when you see me, my lips may curl into a smile but my eyes don’t shine. Do you see that? Do you hear my laughter, but not notice the worry lines that crease my face? You might make note that I always ‘seem’ happy, but do you notice my silence when no one’s looking at me? Everyone wears a mask, or two…….and it’s only certain people that want to know the person inside that will see these things and know that what’s on the surface isn’t all that it appears to be. Through my life I’ve always had a mask ready to wear when talking with anyone. To most people I was the joker….always with a joke handy and a good natured insult for anyone I liked, but what no one knew was how exhausting it’s always been. I could wear that mask for as long as I needed to, but when I was finally alone I’d be drained mentally and emotionally and I’d plummet down into the depths minutes after smiling and saying goodbye. So, when people I’ve know for years find out I’ve struggled with depression all my life, they don’t believe it. How can someone seem so happy and full of life be depressed? Easy…..people pick up that mask…wear it for as long as they need to……then go back to their reality when alone. It’s something that I never told anyone, and generally no one ever noticed, but once every now and then someone comes along that can see through the mask…and when that happens it’s like finding the kindred spirit that’s been missing from a your life!

So, it’s October, and Thanksgiving is this weekend for us Canadians……not a good time to be a turkey! But, it’s also just a few weeks til Halloween. It’s not my favourite time of year, I hate being scared and I see nothing exciting about any of it…….so needless to say I don’t have kids stopping in for candy. But, there are some really cool things that are created in the spirit of the occasion. Sandowl of Wild Roots has created 3 incredible face tattoos and they are stunning! I’m wearing the ‘Cracked Skull Tattoo’ here and it’s available now at The Darkness Event. It’s highly detailed and creepily gorgeous with 3 ink tones included and compatible with the Catwa and Lelutka heads plus any mesh head that’s Omega driven. I could wear a layer of eye shadow at the same time easily so you’re not limited in any way. The Darkness Evet runs until the end of the month.

I know everything else in the picture isn’t clearly visible, but I’m wearing the ‘Fleeting’ hair from Stealthic and the ‘Payton Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE*.

One good thing about it being October is that the Pose Fair is underway and there’s literally tons of poses available for anyone and everyone! I’m using the ‘Apocalypse Sunrise 01’ pose from Bauhaus Movement. I have to admit to having stood on the Bauhaus Movement pose stands for a long time, but damn….they were all sooo good! You can purchase a fatpack of each set or you can purchase the poses separately, you’re choice! There’s lots of gifts available for Pose Fair group members(free to join) and there’s something for everyone there! The Pose Fair runs til the end of the month.

Halo

Halo

Remember those walls I built?
Well, baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound
I found a way to let you in
But, I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light
I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t forget to pull me back to the ground again

And it’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin’
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I’m never gonna shut you out!

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo, halo
I can feel your halo, halo, halo
I can see your halo, halo…
Halo, ooh ooh…
Halo, ooh ooh…
Halo, ooh ooh, oh…

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby, I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo, halo, halo

Halo‘ ~LP~ (Beyoncè cover)

I’d never heard of LP until Jack Slade started covering one of her songs at his shows, and I’m completely in awe of her. Amazing vocals and she puts so much emotion into her songs. This isn’t my favourite song of hers, but it says exactly what I want it to say, today. I hope everyone’s having a great weekend, so far.

I’m wearing the ‘Queen Rose’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio today. I wanted something simple but beautiful to accompany my panties. Haha…doesn’t that sound rich…..like a pair of panties is a whole outfit….well….today…for me……it is! It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies and comes in 4 ink tones.

The ‘Tina’ panties are from Tachinni.

You can only see a little bit of the ‘Ascension’ hair from Stealthic. The gorgeous copper colour goes so well with my freckles.

My skin is ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Keely’ set of poses from Imitation.

Black Horse

Black Horse

Two, three, four.

Well my heart knows me better than I know myself
So I’m gonna let it do all the talking.
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.

I felt a little fear upon my back.
He said, “Don’t look back, just keep on walking.”
When the big black horse said, “Look this way,”
Said, “Hey, lady, will you marry me?”

But I said, “No, no, no, no-no-no.”
I said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no-no-no.”
I said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.”

And my heart hit a problem in the early hours.
So, I stopped it dead for a beat or two.
But I cut some cord, and I shouldn’t have done it,
And it won’t forgive me after all these years.

So, I sent it to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
Now it won’t come back ’cause it’s—oh—so happy,
And now I’ve got a hole for the world to see.

And it said no, no, no, no-no-no.”
Said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no-no-no-no.”
Said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.”

Not the one for me.

Said, “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You’re not the one for me.”

Big black horse and a cherry tree.
I can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me.
Big black horse and a cherry tree.
I can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me.

Black Horse and a Cherry Tree‘ ~KT Tunstall~

I’ve always loved this song and I think it suits the picture well. When I was a teen I wanted a horse sooooo bad, there was cows galore, but the only horse was Prince, a great big gelding that my Granddad had. I was never allowed to ride him because he was a handful but I had memories of being on the other horses Granddad had had when I was little. Mandy was the one I remember best…..a white mare that was completely bomb proof with kids. I did get a horse eventually, her name was Sandy and she was bright red that really shone in the sunshine. She wasn’t even close to being bomb proof and I landed on my butt on the ground a few times, but I always enjoyed riding. Mostly alone but sometimes with Granddad on Prince. I don’t have a horse now, but it’s crossed my mind to get a couple. I don’t know if I ever will, but I think if I do it’ll be draft horses….a Clydesdale or Percheron maybe. I believe in the saying, ‘go big or go home’, at least when it comes to horses! 😀

You’ll notice the great sleeve tattoo I’m wearing today, it’s called ‘Nelly’ and it’s from Carol G Tattoo Wear. This is the black version and there’s a colour version also and they’re available now at Cosmopolitan. I love the intricate swirls and the fading as it nears the shoulder and hand. It’s perfect for summer with sleeveless tops and swimsuits to show it off. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until June 30.

I’m using a guys pose……which isn’t anything new for me, the men’s poses always have an aloof and almost uncaring look that I’m drawn to. This one seems to say, ‘I just don’t really give a sh*t!’. It’s from IntoXx and the good news is that it’s FREE, to anyone!! No group needed, just stop in at the IntoXx main store and click on it.

To show the tattoo off I’m wearing the ‘Bella Tank Top’ in ‘nude’ from Tres Blah.

The jeans are the ‘Lila Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram.

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

I’m at Isle of May, in one of the many chairs scattered about, for this shot.

Pieces

Pieces

Run away, run away if you can’t speak
Turn a page on a world that you don’t need
Wide awake and you’re scared that you won’t come down now

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Now and then there’s a light in the darkness
Feel around till you find where your heart went
There’s a weight in the air but you can’t see why, why

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I want you, everybody wants you
Tell me what you’re needing, give into your bleeding
Never any feeling for yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Can you hold onto me
Can you hold onto me

Run away, run away if you can’t speak

Pieces‘ ~Rob Thomas~

I’ll start with the ‘Pretty Roses’ tattoo from Carol G. Tattoo. I could tell you how highly detailed this tattoo is or how it goes down onto the hands for a completed look. I could say that it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies and also anything Omega driven. But, you already know all that, and you don’t need me to tell you that any tattoo from CarolG is done with the greatest of care and with an eye for the tiniest detail.

I’m not in any way talented in the way of playing musical instruments, I wish I was….I really do. But, I’m hopeless, and will probably never be any different. But in Second Life I can hold this guitar like a BOSS, and make it look like I’m a brooding artist struggling to shed my angst! IntoXx has released the ‘Guitar Gacha Set’ for the May round of PocketGacha. The set includes male and female poses with guitar props consisting of 6 common, 2 rare and one ULTRA RARE, which is a set of 3 couples poses(including the guitar). This is the ‘Female.2, RARE’.

The ‘Luma Tube Top’ is from *Just BECAUSE*.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at the always beautiful Isle of May for this picture.
