Blame it on me

Standard

Now that you’re gone,
I feel like myself again.
Grieving the things I can’t repair and willing…

Paternoster 2

In nomine Patris… I believe I still remember a prayer, maybe it’s not too late to be saved. I feel the weight of many worlds, even the fabric of my sumptuous Lucrezia gown seems to carry some sorrow. This beautiful dress was created for the Fantasy Faire by Les Encantades. The mists have already taken away the mystic Fairelands, but the magic remains. You will find it soon at the main store.

The perfect complement was this amazing Isabella d’Este hairstyle from Oblivion from last round of We ❤️ RP. I love the authenticity in these designs. I had a little fun putting them together, as Isabella was Lucrezia’s rival for a long time… but I digress.

Paternoster 1

Lacrymosa dies illa… She lights a candle with all the strength of her wishes, almost as expecting something mystical to happen. The light flickers on the gems of her Sweet Elegance cross-shaped necklace, one of the latest creations by Zuri Jewelry, reflecting on her warm maple-tone Yoga skin, created by 7 Deadly S{k}ins exclusively for eBento.

Blame it on me,
Set your guilt free.
Nothing can hold you back now.

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 and 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.)

Crown of love and death

Standard

I will never hear her joyful steps and the rustle of her heavy skirts rushing to my arms, the Coimbra sun playing with the reflections of her hair, the hair I kissed so many times. Never again will I hear her loving voice whispering my name, her laughter, her timid sighs. Her voice was silenced forever, robbed from me, ripped off from my heart, as I will rip off yours straight from your chest, and watch you die.

By my power, you all shall kneel, you all must kiss her decaying hand, and swear your allegiance to Dona Inês de Castro, my queen, your queen, the queen you have despised and cruelly murder.

Ines de Castro 2

The Mondego River will sing sad sonnets for her name on the warm summer nights, and the blood she shed will mark the Fountain of Tears for the ages to come, for nobody can ever forget how much I loved Dona Inês, and how unfairly her life was destroyed.

✽ڿڰۣ— NOTE ڿڰۣ—✽

My text is based on a legend surrounding the death of Inês de Castro, lover and allegedly secret wife of prince Pedro of Portugal. She was legitimized as queen after her death, when the heartbroken prince became Pedro I, King of Portugal. This is as far as documented history goes.

Legend claims that he had her exhumed and forced his nobles to kiss her hand and swear allegiance to her as queen, and that he executed her killers by ripping off their hearts, one through the chest and the other one through the back. None of this confirmed, but remains as one of the most tragic real life love stories of Portuguese history.

They rest buried together, their sumptuous marble coffins facing each other, so that they will see each other face to face when they’re awaken, on Judgement Day.

Under your moonlight

Standard
Under your moonlight

Were those sounds in the night, by chance, the steps of my love coming back? Is the moonlight guiding the way of his tired body back to my arms? My hearth awaits, awaits, awaits… I can almost feel his breath on my hair, on my skin…
