All that was me is gone

Standard
All that was me is gone

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lass that’s gone!

He calls me his queen, and his love, and he pretends not to hear me crying myself to sleep every night. My voice is raw from calling out my sweet mother’s name, then every god in Olympus, and any hero who could come to my rescue. My eyes are cloudy from the gloom and the permanent darkness of the underworld, this dreadful cage where I must now dwell.

My disheartened Persephone is wearing the beautiful “Spirit of Hope” gown, a lovely design by Silvan Moon, created exclusively for Gotham Island, a wonderful fundraiser event. The proceeds will be donated to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can find this and more until October 31st.

Persephone’s lovely face is the beautiful Lisa skin from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, which you can find at the current round of eBento. I chose the freckled version in this warm walnut tone. The jewelry set I wear is from the Sugar Drop collection, one of Zuri Jewelry’s latest creations, combined with an adorable Zahra floral crown, fit for the daughter of Demeter.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

Searching for my sins

Standard

La tierra muerta, como un ojo ciego,
Seguirá andando siempre sin sosiego,
Pero en la sombra, a tientas, solitaria,
Sin un canto, ni un ¡ay!, ni una plegaria.

A dead world like a blinded eye,
Restless forever moves through the sky,
But fumbling in shadow and all alone
Not a song nor a cry nor a prayer intones.

Mary Tudor 2

I was born the Queen’s daughter, resented by my father for not being the prince an heir that he wished for. By his whims, I’ve suffered through downfalls and brief flashes of grace, I saw him drive my mother to wither and die alone, I saw others rise and tragically fall. Now I am the queen, and the most unhappy woman on this sterile Earth.

Today I drove my inspiration from one of the darkest moments in the life of Mary I of England, first daughter of the infamous Henry VIII. After a psychological pregnancy ended her hopes of having a child and heir of her own, her beloved husband left her with the excuse of fighting Spanish wars.

Mary Tudor 3

Here she cries to the god she’s always loved and defended, in an effort to understand what her sins are. She wears the majestic “The Queen’s Daughter” gown, created by Silvan Moon designs exclusively for the October round of We  RP. The head piece is included, and it’s available in different colors. It’s absolutely exquisite, wonderfully rigged, and ready for Maitreya, Slink, or standard SL bodies.

The gorgeous jewelry that my melancholy queen Mary wears is by Zuri Jewelry: one is a complete classic, the Czarina Jewels here in the Elite version (metal/gem/pearl changing menu), and a new release: the Filigree Ring. It’s not fitted or rigged, but it’s already located on the ring finger, for Bento hand users.

Mary Tudor 1

The head I’m wearing today is the new Kiana Bento head by Genesis Lab, a most generous and adorable group gift. I added some wrinkles (Omega appliers by Izzie’s), to better illustrate Queen Mary in the situation I was portraying, lonely, depressed and in pain, thinking that god was punishing her for tolerating “heretics” in her realm.

Sola, con sus criaturas preferidas
En el seno cansadas y dormidas.
(Madre que marcha aún con el veneno
de los hijos ya muertos en el seno.)

Alone, with the creatures it preferred,
In its breast worn out, sleep interred.
(A mother moving on with venom pressed
from her children, dead now, in her breast.)

That’s why they call it the blues

Standard
That’s why they call it the blues

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

The leaves and winds already sing tunes of the fall, and I still miss you. I used to count the days, then the weeks, now the seasons go by as well, and you’re still away. There’s a void between my arms that aren’t holding you anymore, there’s an infinite empty space beside me on our bed, and there’s a merciless silence where your laughter used to warm up my heart.

GreetingFall-1

My nostalgic girl is wearing the new Country Girl outfit by Anachron, exclusively created for the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, a second life event for the benefit of Médecins Sans Frontières (doctors without borders), an international aid organization. You can find out more about the organization and the event clicking HERE.

The skin is a new beautiful treat from 7 Deadly S{k}ins, Koko, created based on the latest Akeruka group gift, a cute Bento head called Kumiko. It was a flash offer and it will soon be available in several skin tones.

GreetingFall-2

The offer includes full Omega appliers in two skin tones, and a modifiable shape designed for the Kumiko head. I’m wearing a slight modification from this 7DS shape. Because the head appliers are Omega, you can also try it on with other Omeaga-compatible heads.

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I’m your man
