You can’t trust a cold blooded man
Girl, don’t believe in his lies
Can’t trust a cold blooded man
He’ll love you and leave you alive
There’s one thing you must understand
You can’t trust a cold blooded man

Can’t trust a cold blooded woman
Boy, don’t you lie in her bed
You can’t trust a cold blooded woman
She’ll love you and leave you for dead
There’s one thing you must understand
You can’t trust a cold blooded woman

Angels & Demons – Part 2

Originally shot for Eclipse Magazine // June 2021 Page 159-168 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_june_2021

Angels & Demons

What would you choose? Who would you become? Would you rather be enchanted or consumed by Heaven or Hell, Light or Dark, Good or Evil, Love or Hate, or to be Blessed or Cursed. Angels and Demons are polar opposites of one another within many cultures and in fiction. On one hand, they are a form of symbology and on the other they are seen in religion, mythology, and fantasy. Magical and mystical beings that we will read find in books, movies,movies, TV, anime or plays from ancient to modern. Even within the confines of real life and Second Life, we will roleplay and become one of them.

Despite the difference in abilities and the cultural milieu they come from, they share some similarities, such as, hierarchical ranks, miraculous or magical powers, and the enmities and friendships with each other and with mortals. Though Angels and Demons are often in a never-ending battle to defeat the other, in that chaos comes a little spark: opposites, suddenly attracted to or obsessed  with each other. Will they escape and find peace or be consumed by their conflict?

Their appearances can differ, both taking on ugly, distorted, fear-inducing manifestations, or transforming into beautiful, ethereal and alluring personas. Angels usually are depicted with long, modest, feather-like flowing garments, while a Demons attire is often tight, conforming to every curve or their form making it matter little how much or how little clothing they wear.. Although in the more modern age and flight of fantasy, anything goes, the color palettes don’t often change. Angels decorated in white and softened colors and pastels signifying purity and innocence, guiding you on your travels, while the Demons adorn black and deep, rich colors, warning you to watch where you tread, but do you want to? Will they draw you into the darkness forever lost in their grasp.

Open mind for a different view…

TUNES

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words, I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

And it’ll be my last
Music of the future
And music of the past.

Would be impossible to do

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

Made for Eclipse Magazine // January 2021 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_january_2021

“Loving the monsters always ends badly for the humans. It’s a rule.”

[- Laurell K. Hamilton -]

For the current issue of the Eclipse Magazine, again I was allowed to showcase a role play genre. My choice this time was Vampires. I wanted to cover the more traditional and vintage side of it as well as the modern one.

For the more traditional, Victorian one I had the great pleasure, to get some company from Vivien Delancoure. It is always fun to do picture with friends, but usually I just do not dare to ask, as sometimes I take ages until I have my final pose, shot and background. I hate to waste others peoples time. With Vivien it was different. She is a blogger as well, making wonderful pictures and creates most of her poses by herself – Just take a look at her Flickr HERE. So she knows how long it can take and that made me brave enough to ask her, if she would like to join me for a picture. Her style is usually goth-romantic or dark romantic, which already was perfect for what I was going for. She was so sweet and patient and made the whole shoot to a lot of fun combined with a lovely chitchat 😉 I have a feeling, that this will be not our last shoot together as it really was awesome to work with her.

Thank you Vivien, for your time, patience and a new growing friendship I do not want to miss again 😉

My style you can find – like usual – below this post. For Vivien’s look, just take a look at her blog HERE.

“… yet Daylight put an End to all these Evils…”

“ All these, however, were mere terrors of the night, phantoms of the mind that walk in darkness; and though he had seen many spectres in his time, and been more than once beset by Satan in divers shapes, in his lonely pre-ambulations, yet daylight put an end to all these evils; and he would have passed a pleasent life of it, in despite of the devil and all his works, if his path had not been crossed by a being that causes more perplexity to mortal man than ghosts, goblins, and the whole race of witches put together, and that was – a woman.”

Originally created for AUDAZ – https://audaz-sl.com/

“Nin knew how much humans loved money, riches, and material things—though he never really could understand why. The more technologically advanced the human species got, the more isolated they seemed to become, at the same time. It was alarming, how humans could spend entire lifetimes engaged in all kinds of activities, without getting any closer to knowing who they really were, inside.”

You’re Forgiven not Forgotten…

TUNES

All alone, staring on
Watching her life go by
When her days are gray and her nights are black
Different shades of mundane

And the one favorite toy that lies upon the bed
Has often heard her cry
And heard her whisper out a name long forgiven
But not forgotten

A bleeding heart torn apart
Left on an icy grave
In the room where they once lay, face to face
Nothing could get in their way

But now the memories of the man are haunting her days
And the craving never fades
She’s still dreaming of a man long forgiven
But not forgotten

Still alone, staring on
Wishing her life goodbye
As she goes searching for the man long forgiven
But not forgotten

You’re forgiven not forgotten
You’re not forgotten
No, you’re not forgotten
