Crumble from Reality

TUNES

Twilight falls on withering flesh
Muffled sighs one final breath
Darkness creeps in to make her claim
Now flows the demon in your veins
She lets the world fall from me
Crumble from reality
There she walks with feet unmoving
Eternally…

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

If you aren’t a joke?

If you are ready to obey
You either a fool or acting like me

And again a pose set took me to the dark side – and sometimes I do enjoy it 😉

This time it was the “Obey Me” fatpack of Black Cat Creations and all those amazing new releases at Kinky and The Warehouse Sale. The fatpack contains 5 poses (and their mirrors) and as well that cool, long whip, which you can re-color to 5 different colors. The cool outfit and the skeleton wrap I picked up at the last FLF while those cool collar, arm and leg sleeves, which match so perfectly to it are one of the awesome releases at the actual round of The Warehouse Sale. I would love to drag your focus on my earrings as well. They are the newest creation of Eclipse Art Studio. An unrigged set of earrings perfect for any kind of mesh ears. The whole gacha is a huge collection of all kind of earrings, while I am just wearing the rares with that awesome little Vikings shield and the chain which connects all the little circles behind it.

While I never would put a whip in my hand in real life, I have to admit i really love how those pictures turned out *grins*. Let’s see what else poses can seduce me to in the future *winks*

And there were sales again… and some new releases as well certainly!

When I got that super cute outfit from +Psycho Barbie+ – the “Mei” outfit – which comes in 3 parts (top, corset and sleeves), I immediately had a “Lolita” impression. Maybe it was the ruffles, or because it looked so cute, I have no idea. But I wanted to do a sweet look with some edges with it. Ok I have to admit, maybe “sweet” isn’t the right word, lets go with playful *giggles*

The awesome No_Cradle hairstyle from no.match, which you can find at the current round of eBENTO, just matched perfectly. It does have 2 different style options, for my post I just used the one with the hair behind the back. You have another option, where a huge wisp falls over the left side of your face, but that didn’t work too well with the cool chain veil from Six Feet Under 😉

I have to say I do enjoy my new “duty” to make pictures and blogs with the loot of my sale shopping and I will try to go on with them between the posts for my amazing sponsors – certainly you will find them featured as well in most of my looks anyway… credits as always down below 🙂

Angel of Death

The Angel of Death
Will come from the sky
And claim up your soul
When the time comes to die
When the Angel of Death
Comes down after you
Can you smile and say
That you have been true

[- Hank Williams -]

I had a very rough few days, thinking about friendship and about the fact that you think you know people and then you get badly disappointed to find out… you were completely wrong by thinking you knew someone.

It is not the first time that I had to find out about the true colors of someone, who called me “friend” for a longer time. Every time when that happened, I told myself to not trust people anymore – especially not in a virtual environment, where it is even more easy to trick people about your identity and character.

For what ever reason, I go against my own guts again and again, when I meet new people. I always try to force myself to not trust them right away or maybe do not trust them at all even. But you know how that goes, if you are an emotional and true person, there will be a point after some time, where you feel something for someone and just can’t hold the protective wall, which you built around you, up any longer and again you fall for something you call friendship after a while. In good times, all will go fine and you think you got to know someone, even if he or she lives all across the world on the other half of the globe. And many times it really is like that, but you again and again will face the fact, that there is rotten tomatoes between all the good red ones. Usually they are well hidden and so it takes a while until they are seeing the sunlight. If they do it mostly hurts. In the past even more than today, as with getting older you experience that more often certainly, even if you never will get used to it.

If I think about closely, the situations where it turned out good, feel even stronger. I don’t want miss the friendship to a hand full of people I met in Second Life over the years – some of them I even call family by now and they most likely or better hopefully never would turn 180° on me. What if I would have gone with my “no trust” policy strictly? I never would have met those I truly care for and think about, even if I am not in Second Life. I would have missed those who I can trust and who trust me and all the wonderful times we shared together. So I guess I will be hurt again in the future, as I am not willing to give up on trusting people in general… I do not want to miss out on those, which possibly could become amazing wonderful friends over the time. Some probably would call me stupid for that, I would call it human I guess 😉

“In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for…”

TUNES

I could take your breath away,
I could make this feel so right
Out of the blackest shadows
Into your burning light
Your touch would enthrall my heart,
My touch could release your soul
Lying warm and dark in your arms,
Come close to me now and take control
Riding through endless nights,
Bury the nameless dead
The stars will rain down in the night
Cast out of Heaven by jealous angels of death
Together we’ll rule our world
Together we’ll rule theirs too

Lightning and thunder collide
At the edge of the world for me and you
In this Paradise you’ll find just what your looking for,
Beauty right before you eyes,
How could you ask for more?
Here behind these eyes,
Here inside my soul
Hear the screams of a crucifixion ring through the dark,
Ring through the cold
Reach up and pull me down
Into your hallowed ground
I’ll lead you into temptation,
Buried in passion I’ll lead you down…
