Behind the door

Standard

What I’ve felt, what I’ve known
Sick and tired, I stand alone
Could you be there? ‘Cause I’m the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven, too?

Bride 1You will be here, I know that much. All the rest is noise, the flowers, the intricate bejeweled gown, the dazzling jewelry, the elaborated plans… it’s all beautiful, but nothing more than a pretty background. This is our story. Come beside me, and speak the words that make my demons run.

Bride 2

Come lay beside me, this won’t hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she’ll never love again
She lay beside me but she’ll be there when I’m gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she’ll be there when I’m gone

Taste the poison

Standard

I can feel you calling me
I can see the cracks between these walls
But this pain
I choke on the words as they rise in me
To survive, I lock down

Music and laughter fill the air, a siren wails in the distance, someone yells something to the bartender… my body moves to some rhythm by inertia perhaps, while the blaring chaos around me muffles all my thoughts. Good. Some things are best unsaid, even if it’s just with the voice inside my mind.

Smoking 2

Cigarette smoke and sweat drench the soft cotton of my Witchy top, one of the latest creations by Witch)O(Craft, released at Suicide Dollz and soon at the main store. I can feel it crawling on my Muriel skin, smokey eye shadow and all, a beautiful creation by 7 Deadly S{k}ins that you can find at the Vintage Fair.

I need fresh air, or perhaps I really need to poison my breath in solitude. Maybe the silence won’t be enough to awake the dark thoughts. I let my Sierra heels by Renegade carry me outside. You can find these ravishing shoes at the Good Vibes event.

Smoking 1

Say the words
I can’t face the world
If I could say the words
Everything would be broken still
We are broken

Quote: “Lockdown”, by Amy Lee.

Voices I hear

Standard

Mystical voices, floating, calling;
Dim farewells – the last, the last? –
“Come, come away, the night is falling;
Come, come away, the day is past!”

You cannot be sure if what you heard is the wind dancing through the cracks of the cave, or an eerie whisper calling your name, playing with your fears. Could those be steps, could those be crystals clinking through the silence, or just a random water drop crashing on the rocks?

Crystal demon 1

A silhouette emerges from the darkness, pale as a deadly sin. The moonlight shines on the majestic symbols engraved on its ghastly skin, the delicate beauty of red roses, evoking droplets of blood on silent snow.

It turns around in a blind stare, a blinding stare, a scream trapped in your throat. There is beauty and it’s almost overwhelming, or perhaps it’s just the lure of darkness itself.

Crystal demon 2

Tell me your message, Ye who are calling
Out of the dimness vague and vast? –
Lift me, take me, – the night is falling;
Quick, let us go, – the day is past!

Dis-moi, Josephine

Standard
Dis-moi, Josephine

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds all day long…

She’s all feathers and luscious pearls, the most exotic midnight glam. Behind her dazzling smile, a dangerous secret is hidden by a song. Her voice enchants everyone in the room, a true spell cast by her playful eyes. She dances all their fantasies away, swiping their careless confidences away, while they’re too entranced to know that they’re the enemy.

Josephine 2

Fabulous like no other, the Black Pearl plays a dangerous game. Today she fascinates the troops clad in her magnificent Miss Fisher Gown, designed by the amazing Silvan Moon Designs for the upcoming round of the Vintage Fair (June 8th to 25th). The fabric is super luxurious and the rigging feels incredibly authentic. It will be available in 6 colors.

Adored by a legion of admirers, the Creole goddess wears the glorious Charlotte pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry, with matching ring and bracelet. The Elite menu allows my to choose between several combinations of gems, metals, and pearls for a unique look.

Josephine 1

The music continues at the Twisted Summer RFL Sale, named Sockdolanger and themed after the Roaring 20’s. Nothing more fitting for the Black Venus than the fabulous Josephine Baker headpiece by Sweet Revolutions, and the Bento Satin Gloves by Maraschino (formerly Anachron). The event runs until June 30th.

The silence seems unnatural after the roaring energy of the party. Nothing but the swish of her garments and the subtle rustle of her magical pen, scratching stolen secrets between the lines of her music sheets.

Sleepy time gal
When all your dancin’ is through
Sleepy time gal
I’ll find a cottage for you…

Let’s dance

Standard
Let’s dance

Yeah, I feel you too
Feel, those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns
To free the you

Demon 3Surrender, embrace the pain, scream for me… it’s time for luxurious kink. Owned and stretched on the Vilnai Angled Bondage Cross, an exclusive creation by The Roawenwood for Romp. It includes sensual animations, optional cuffs, and three different wood colors. This is the last day, so if you still didn’t go, this is it!

Demon 1

If you were thinking leather, straps, garters, and heels, look no further than Les Encantades at We ❤️ RP. It’s the Crystal outfit, fitted for several mesh bodies and in different colors. The corset is a thing of beauty, with a very low cleavage that allows a glimpse beyond its edges. The extremely sensual skin is Pepper, by 7 Deadly S{k}ins, in one of the fantasy tones variation.

Demon 2

One day you will see
And dare to come down to me
Yeah c’mon, c’mon now take the chance
That’s right
Let’s dance

Exactly like you

Standard

I know why I waited
Know why I’ve been blue
I’ve been waiting each day
For someone exactly like you

Seven years ago, on a beautiful summer night between German holidays just like now, I saw him for the first time. He walked on the dance floor and I remember thinking he was the most handsomest man I had seen. Only a few minutes later, he was dancing with me, the first of many nights that I would feel the world disappear in his arms.

Dance 1
Today we dance again, he gets lost in the sensuality of my Clairy gown, created by Witch)O(Craft exclusively for the Dazzle event, which runs until May 25th. He runs a hand through my back, playing with my Zuri Jewelry pearls, and exploring the curves of my new Cherry Blossom tattoo, also by Witch)O(Craft, which you can find at The Avenue until May 22nd.

He introduced me to Second Life, and he also took me to my first visit to 7 Deadly S{k}ins, a favorite since life before mesh. Tonight the lights shine bright on my Seventeen skin, an exclusive creation for Ultra, and his handsome Judas skin. I will never forget that first night, that first dance… that feeling of the imminent first kiss… he’s the love of all my lives.

Dance 2

You make me feel so grand
I wanna give this world to you
Baby you make me understand
These foolish little dreams I’m dreaming
And schemes I’m scheming

Twisting, turning

Standard

In the dark, see past our eyes
Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies
Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
On a quest, meaning, reason

Leiptr 3

Each move is calculated to excruciating precision as she twists, turns, and jumps, clad in that tight Paradox outfit from The Fantasy Collective. Crafted by Stargazer, this erotic attire is fitted for Maitreya bodies and available in several colors. As usual with Stargazer creations, the textures give a mesmerizing impression of multichromic metal with “oil spill” shine. It seems to play with light.

The neon seams of the clothing match with my new Leiptr piercing set, by Drunken Brokkr. This extremely cool set was created exclusively for the SciFi Expo, in support of Relay for Life in Second Life, signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The lip rings are Bento rigged, and the lightning flickers on all the pieces.

Leiptr 2

The dark purple of the special RFL edition contrasts with the pale beauty of my Coriander skin, one of the latest creations from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, found exclusively at the AnyBody event. Coriander is as beautiful as it is versatile. Available in many skin tones, it also includes browless options.
