leave into madness

find the only sign that you’re numb
lingering on your lips
hide in knowing tides undone
breathe i’m surrounded by your touch, blushed from salted tips
shrouding all i know, paths already found too soon
sigh the lowly miles become, withering your forfeit
fighting knowing one by one
leave into madness
above, hushed in our eclipse
how then would you know – i’m already drowning too?
ah, i’m fading wanting silence, torn
in your shallows i’ll swim
howling the only light on my shore
to align
oh to help me find
oh to align
oh to broken roots
hope that we return soon
leave me fighting shrouded lungs
drifting on from the moor
oh will i lie to soothe my tongue
oh believe my eyes
yearn for it all
leave you to find
all in time
calling your wind to tide
await you in the night
ah, i’m fading wanting silence, torn
in your shallows i’ll swim
howling the only light on my shore
to align
oh to help me find
oh to align
oh to broken roots
hope that we return soon
oh believe my eyes yearn for it all
only where my spirit grows
oh believe my eyes yearn for it all
learn to be whole
will we ever learn
ah, i’m fading wanting silence, torn
in your shallows i’ll swim
howling the only light on my shore
to align
oh to help me find
oh to align
oh to broken roots
hope that we return soon
oh believe my eyes yearn for it all
leave you to find
all in time

Couldn’t Reach Your Ego

On my tip-toes
But I still couldn’t reach your ego
Guess I was crazy to give you my body, my mind
Don’t know what I was thinkin’ ’til now
Everyone thinks that you’re somebody else
You even convinced yourself

Couldn’t even see you through the smoke
Lookin’ back, I probably should have known
But I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone

Loved me with your worst intentions
Didn’t even stop to question
Every time you burned me down
Don’t know how; for a moment it felt like heaven
Loved me with your worst intentions
Painted us a happy ending
Every time you burned me down
Don’t know how; for a moment it felt like heaven

And it’s so gut-wrenchin’ (Ooh, ooh)
Fallin’ in the wrong direction (Ooh, ooh)
How did you sweep me right off my feet?
Baby, I can’t keep
Fallin’ in the wrong direction
How did you sweep me right off my feet?
Right off my feet

Peepers

Tis the season to dress up in all sorts of festive outfits and the recent annual BVN Holiday Party was no exception. They had a themed formal of white and gold. Yes, I had to wear another formal. Lucky for me, I have a weakness for the gowns at Just Because, so I had a few to choose from…even if they make me itch. *laughs* Okay, not really…well, not in Second Life, but I’m not big on formals. That’s just a bit froofroo for my tastes. However, I was a good sport and went to the party in a beautiful golden gown. In fact, my friend and fellow blogger, Caitlin Mirabella, took a picture of us in our gowns and she did a fantastic job. Though none of that is what is being showcased here.
You see, there were lots of fabulous blogger prizes being given away at random and I was the lucky winner of a three month blogger gig with Avi Glam. To be honest, I wasn’t all that familiar with the brand before hand. That has certainly changed and just in time for my adventure with close ups! You see, Avi Glam is best known for their amazing eyes. I’m a sucker for some pretty eyes, so I leaped at the chance to scoop up some new peepers! Be on the look out, because I will be showing off plenty of beautiful eyes in all my close ups.

Saving Ourselves

“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with.”
― Brodi Ashton, Everneath

When I was growing up I was told the same fairy tales that  most of us heard. You knw the ones where some princess or beautiful maiden needed to be rescued? Then magically some handsome prince would come along, save the girl, and they would live happily ever after. I don’t remember any of the fairy tales being about a woman saving a man or saving another woman, much less saving herself. I grew up waiting for some man to come along and save me from the one man I should have been able to trust the most. It never happened. Looking back now, I wish I had been taught that women are amazingly strong creatures and fully capable of rescuing themselves, as well as helping each other. Instead, I was taught that women were out to get each other and that only a man…a handsome prince, usually, could come save the day.
One thing is for sure, it has been women that rescued me far more often than any man. I’m not hating on men, mind you. I’m simply trying to say that women don’t need to depend on any man to fix things. I’d rather see women supporting and encouraging one another, lifting each other up, to show the world that we are not just capable of greatness, but we are made for it! Let’s work on saving ourselves!

On Your Way

Dear Autumn,
I didn’t get a chance to know you, but you were loved by so many. I would have traded places with you if I could. While this song is not a perfect fit from me to you. I do think its carries more than one message from more than one person. I know the world is a little darker without you. As my light has been so dim the last few years, I will do my best to shine a little brighter to make up for your absence. You are greatly missed. I hope you are at peace and that you’ve finally escaped your earthly pains.

Love & light,
Sady

On your way to God,
Did you think of me?
On your way to heaven,
Did you say “I’ll see you again”?

It wasn’t me, why wasn’t it me?

On your way to to the promised land, did you say
“Oh, she was such a friend”?
Then they took you higher and
I don’t know if I can follow…

It wasn’t me, why wasn’t it me?

On your way, I said to the air,
I don’t know if I am strong.
So I climbed to the mountain
And I don’t know what I did wrong

And it was just me, just little ole me…
~ Alabama Shakes – On Your Way

She Don’t Want the World

“The open wound she hides
She just keeps it bundled up and never lets it show
She can’t take much more of this but she can’t let it go
That’s okay, she don’t want the world
And all the things she says
He’s just lying there without someone to hear her cry
She slips off into a dream about a place to hide
That’s okay, she don’t want the world”

Way Down We Go

“Father tell me, we get what we deserve
Oh we get what we deserve
And way down we go
Way down we go
Say way down we go
Way down we go
You let your feet run wild
Time has come as we all oh, go down
Yeah but for the fall oh, my
Do you dare to look him right in the eyes?”
~Kaleo – Way Down We Go

How many of us truly belong in karma or some sort of divine justice? We’ve all heard people say, “there’s a special place in hell for people like that.” Some of us have even thought it or said it ourselves. So, while we sit in judgement of others, regardless of their offense, how many of us want the karma or divine justice we deserve? How many of us have taken a friend or lover down with us?
I think that its far too easy and convenient to point the fingers at others. I think that most of us revel in the crimes of the obscene, for it relieves us of some of the guilt we carry within our hearts. However, what if there’s a special place in hell for people like us? Does karma just skip the little stuff? Just food for thought.

Are You Serious?

Alright, as a perpetually single woman on the grid, I find myself meeting some very interesting people. Yes, a good portion of them are men, for the lack of a better word. Most of them have been pretty nice experiences, but there’s enough bad apples out there….that I’m beginning to avoid the orchard. Although, I’ve heard about women receiving unsolicited dick pics, that has yet to be my experience. What I have experienced has been far more bizarre in my opinion. I’m not going to tell full stories of how I get myself into these situations, but below you will find a few examples of what I  consider to be such bizarre interactions that I’m always left with the same question, “Are you serious?”

  • I was on voice with this guy, I had invited him to my land, things seemed normal enough as we talked about random things like music and movies when he just lies down in my SL bed and says he’s going to sleep there. I thought he was kidding, but then I hear this strange noise from his end of things. Yes, it sounded like he was jerking off. Being me, I just asked him, “Uhm, are you jerking off?” He just keep making the noise until he ‘finished’ and said, “Yeah, I always do before I go to sleep.”
  • I was having a first conversation with a guy. He’s told me a few things about himself. He’s told me I’m cute, blah blah…then says, “Going AFK.” To which I replied, “OK.” Then he said, “I’m going to jerk off, I’ve been needing to do this all day.”
  • I was talking to a friend of mine on Skype, oddly enough about a guy that had been trying to talk to both of us. During our conversation, he IMed both of us separately. He told her that he was helping his best friend inworld, he told me that he was cooking dinner. He went quiet to both of us for about an hour. Then he began with his IMs again, sending her spanks and sending me kisses.
  • The ex-boyfriend of a friend, messaged me on Facebook with pornographic gifs. I asked why on earth he thought it was okay to send those to me and his answer was, “I thought you’d like them.” Next thing I know he was sent me a 15 sec video of him jacking off.
  • I was cuddling with a guy that I had been getting to know pretty well. We were kissing and talking, when he suddenly stands up and says, “I gotta go, my ex girlfriend needs me.”
bags are packed
and people wonder why I’ve declared myself perpetually single

More Skin

Some people on Facebook have expressed surprise at the fact that there’s so much more than just skin at the Skin Fair. It’s always been more than skin, at least as far back as I can remember. Last year several new bento heads were introduced. This year I’ve not seen as many heads being released. However, there are lots of shapes, tattoos, and cosmetics, as well as an abundance of skins.  Seriously, reduce your scripts and your complexity as much as you can, then head on over and check it out. There’s plenty of amazing creations for everyone.
Today I’m showing you the A R T E – Sweetie Skin. I just love how the light catches on this skin and couldn’t resist going black and white for the main photo. However, you can see all three shades in the photo at the bottom.
