Halloween Nightmares 2023 – Part 1


Stitched you up, put you together
With cotton and feather
Gave you love, put my heart inside you
Oh, what could I do?

When you started talkin’ in your sleep
Saying the things you’d do to me
I didn’t care, I wasn’t scared
Now I’m findin’ knives under the sheets
Crumpled photographs of me
I’m in despair, should I be scared?

Teddy bear, you were my teddy bear
You were comforting and quiet
How did love become so violent?
Teddy bear, you were my teddy bear
Everything was so sweet until you tried to kill me

[- Melanie Martinez -]

Time for a little writeup today 😉 I didn’t write for along time more than just some quotes or lyrics. Sometimes you do not have something to say and then it is better to just shut up I was taught in my childhood – I believe that is true.

Life was just a mess the past couple of months and always when I thought it can’t become anymore worse – it did.

It did come to a peak when I was told I cannot be a teacher anymore, because I had already to many limited contracts – about 12 years (I stopped studying after the first exam due a record label contract and some other reasons, which none ever cared until now). Now that Germany is seriously short on teachers, none even thought they would pull that card after so many successful years, but they did. So, while we hear everyday on the news “We desperately need teachers”, I am sitting at home, not yet sure what I am going to do since I was half of my life a teacher and the other half a musician – I am way not the only one facing that situation and no one does understand that idiotic misery.

Long story short – I had to sort my mind first before I wanted to talk about and just underlined my pictures with songs, quotes and emotions I was in during that process. But now we have the dark season of the year – Halloween and so many other holy days, that pulled me out of my corner and back to work – aka styling and taking pictures!

Since I had a lot of time over the past weeks, I was able to so some fun in SL again and I went to do a few cool Halloween themed hunts and visited some cool dark events, where I found a looooooot of strange, spooky and cool things I want to showcase now in a little “Halloween Nightmares” series – And here is it is… Part 1 😉

(Btw it is really funny AND amazing, how you can find lyrics and songs to al kind of weird imaginations like the one I found for todays post *giggles*)
