Now, You’re Mine

I just can’t stand it babe,
the way you’re always runnin’ ’round.
I just can’t stand it, the way you always put me down.
I put a spell on you because you’re mine.

She was the dangerous sort of beautiful. Rare, because she knew it. Even more rare because she knew how to use it. And he? He had abused it-the love, the loyalty, the whole package, as neatly as it was wrapped. He had discarded it, discarded her. But she didn’t cry. Instead, she dressed to kill in a dress meant to showcase everything he was about to lose. She greeted him with a smile and the softness of ruby-red lips, and then she stood back, watching and waiting for revenge to take its course…

Where There’s a Man Who has No Voice, There Ours Shall Go Singing

nova ryr slipper endless pain retro rewind.png

 

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all ok
And not to worry because worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I will not be made useless
I won’t be idled with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

 

I’ll go back to my regular format soon, because I looove telling you guys stories, but this post contains my first Rock Your Rack preview for the 2016 Rock Your Rack event hosted by Models Giving Back, so here’s the deal:

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I am participating in Rock Your Rack this year on just about every level one can participate, these posts are going to be special. With each Rock Your Rack post, I’m going to include some facts about breast cancer that not only every woman should know, but every man (because: Did you know that breast cancer does not explicitly affect women? While breast cancer in men is rare, it can happen.)

Breasts should not be so taboo. Know your body. Check yourself regularly. Don’t be afraid to speak up and speak out. We’ve all seen the shirts that say ‘Save the Tatas.’ Hell, I think I have one. Some people laugh (because hey, the word ‘tatas’ is funny, right?) but breast cancer is a serious issue. Here’s some of the reasons why:

  • One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.

If you’re looking for another way to get involved in the fight, please stop by and check out the Rock Your Rack event, which opens on October 1st and runs until October 16th. Sales generated from purchases of items at Rock Your Rack 2016 will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. For more information about Rock Your Rack, the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and the event hosts, Models Giving Back, please see this post.

She’s Like the Wind…

She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun. 
She’s taken my heart, 
but she doesn’t know what she’s done.

In the Mood for a Melody

 

In the Mood for a Melody.png

 

And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”

She approached the piano, her heels clicking lightly against the worn wooden floor beneath her feet, and hid a sad smile as she reached out to move her fingers over the old ivory keys, pulling a layer of dust away with her fingertips.

Somewhere behind her, she heard a man’s voice.

“Do you play?” He asked.

She froze there a second, her hand poised in mid-air. Sometimes, she could still hear the music, still remember the way it felt to bring the old instrument to life. It called to her, much like a siren’s song, but she had denied it for so long.

“It still works,” the man added, sounding almost hopeful. “Might need a bit of tuning, though.”

She turned and tilted her head ever-so-slightly in his direction. “I don’t play anymore,” she said.

“But you used to?”

“Yeah,” she said with a soft nod of her head. “Used to. Don’t anymore.”

The silence hung between them a moment, and then she heard him again, posing the one question she’d never been able to answer for herself, much less to anyone else:

“Why?”

Such a Beautiful Disaster…

And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful
Or just a beautiful disaster?

The dream had been a nice one while it lasted. She had even smiled in her sleep. But then her hand stretched across the pillow, and her eyelashes fluttered.

She sat up.

A warm ray of morning sunshine was dancing across the wall and filling the room with a soft glow of light, and…

And she was alone. Again.

The dream had been a nice one while it lasted…

If You Love Me…

Hold on to me. 
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady.

Dust Yourself Off and…

Before you ask, because I know that, seeing the title, you’re all probably wondering:

No. I didn’t lose my mind. At least not all of it. Not yet.

too fly for a bad guy blog.png

 

I may have had just a little  too much fun with this old pose from DeePosed, but I couldn’t help myself. As usual, it’s been an interesting couple of days, and I have handled it with my usual…decorum. Seriously, though. If I ever have a day where nothing goes wrong and I can actually breathe without metaphorically getting punched in the gut, I will probably die of happiness. But I digress.

So I was playing around with some older poses and exploring Second Life because that’s how I roll, and I decided to get dressed up and have some fun and take some pictures. This is the “Too Fly” Shorts and Blouse from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. It’s one of the first items I nabbed to blog back when I made their blogger team, and then I took about 9 million pictures and for some reason hated everything I took, scrapped the whole idea, and shelved it for later. So here it is today, in all its smexy glory! I paired it with a new release from -Endless Pain Tattoos- that will be at this round of the Totally Top Shelf event running from Aug 5 – Aug 26  called Ananke. And because this photo was still (at least in my opinion) lacking in the sass department, I added this awesome wind-blown hair from Argrace called “Haruka.”

*brushes off the haters*

I. Feel. Fabulous.

And I am. And that’s what I’ve learned in the last couple weeks.No matter what knocks me down, or who, or even why, I am always going to get back up and brush it off because I am fierce, and I am fabulous…and maybe just a little bit stubborn. Nothing and no-one will keep me down for long. That is my new promise to myself.

But y’all came here for the fashion, didn’t you?

Let me enlighten you!
