Time to Liberate

“Four walls like a prison
Feels like another victim
Something’s wrong
Something’s missing
You scream when it hurts but there’s nobody listenin’
Gettin’ sick of going psycho
Burnin’ quick, a downward spiral
Not a slave or an animal
Someone break me out this cage
It’s time to liberate
From everyone who loves to hate
From everything that’s makin’ you live the lie
Don’t you think it’s time to twist your fate
Liberate”
~ James Durbin – Liberate

I’ll Be Ok

“We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can’t keep anything you take
Lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
To not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I’ll be okay
How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open”

Rabbits and a Paper Fan

Another challenge was presented after my post: Challenge to Challenge. This one came from my adorable elven friend, Luca. I wonder what she was looking at to make her think of those two things. I should have asked her to clarify which kinds of rabbits, because she and I are like a couple of 12yr girls when we get together. We’ll giggle and make everything dirty. So, I can easily imagine this being about the sex toy kinda rabbits. However, since she didn’t clarify and the first thing that popped in my head was little white rabbits…that’s the direction I’m going.
I thought a bit about white rabbits and paper fans. I wondered why I automatically think of white rabbits and whether or not that makes me a racist in the bunny world. As for the paper fans, I thought of the type I use to make with accordion style folded paper when I was little girl sitting in a church that was so old, it didn’t have central air and the stained glass windows didn’t open. (Yes, I grew up going to church.) This led me on a rather long trail of thought regarding things I used to believe in, like Santa. I remember being about 4yrs old, living in Germany. I had this huge plate glass window in my bedroom and what I’m sure now was a falling star, I just knew I saw Santa flying across the sky.
It’s almost as if Luca knows me and how my mind works…jumping from one thought to another as memories unfold. It’s funny, the older I get the more often this happens. It makes me grateful to have some pretty cool memories to rely on.

Is that Santa
Do I see Santa?

Blueberry pt2

I recently did a post about mixing Blueberry sets and I promised that you’d be seeing this combination soon. I love this top so much. I know it’s supposed to be a bikini top, but I wear it with so many things. With that said, I’d like to mention that these leggings come with a hud to write your own message. I believe there are 14 charaters, 2 fonts, more than a dozen symbols…AND you can customize the colors of the letters. These Reign sneakers tie the whole thing together as they are fully customizable, as well. (I think I just made up a word, but let’s roll with it.)

I Tried

When I tell someone that I don’t believe I have a true love or that you no longer have a heart to give, they immediately feel sorry for me. They want to save me and convince m that there is a true love out there for me somewhere.  Meanwhile, I have a man telling me that anyone would be a fool not to love me, but does he? How could he when he is with another? I have tried to believe that there is something special out there for me, but I’ve surrendered to my fate. I know now that my place is in the shadows. I know that my place is a secret hideaway, for it in the dark that the truth hides. Whatever there is about me that people find so lovable, there must be something equally wretched that sends them away. And that’s ok. I know now that I tried. That is not my life. Love has eluded me repeatedly and now? I’m done. I tried.

I tried
Sometimes I feel that I am what I deserve
A hundred crimes, no way to pay them off
So when quiet fills the night and you hurt
Know I am sorry for all that you lost

Honky Tonk

Josh and I were attending a Savannah Rain show at Seaside Lounge a while back. We were on voice and Sav started singing Tanya Tucker’s “Love Me Like You Used To.” I got lost down memory lane and told Josh, “This is a true Honky Tonk Song.” Being English, he’s not really familiar with exactly what a Honky Tonk is…so I began to explain it and he insisted that I write it down. So, here it is…

This is one of those songs you play on the jukebox, because there’s not usually a live band unless its Friday or Saturday night. But once in a while on a Monday night, you just get overwhelmed with that bluesy lonely feeling. You crave the dim flickering lights and loud music, being surrounded by people, but not really interacting with them much. You half hope that someone will notice how sad and lonely you are….you half hope they don’t. And then certain songs will simply take you away…you close your eyes to fight the tears as you sing along, as the music is loud enough that no one can hear you anyway. You somehow find some solace in your solitude and in the bottom of a bottle.
Sometimes you go to that particular bar, just hoping you’ll see HIM…as you know he frequents that bar regularly. You remember dancing with him when no one else was dancing. You reminisce about the good times as the tears stream down your face.
Regardless of the reason, you sit alone at the bar and unless you had too many, you leave alone and thankfully a bit more numb. That’s been my experience with Honky Tonks anyway. Yes, its always country music and on weekends its a much livelier place, but weekdays brings out the sad and lonely along with the regulars.

I’d like to add a little note, that not all country music is sad…so you should check out Savannah Rain, she is by far the best live country singer on the grid in my opinion and Seaside Lounge has some great live performances, so be sure to check them out, too. Ya know, when you take a break from shopping and want to show off your pretty new clothes!

Cornered

Go to your corner! Go to your corner!

She was sick and tired of being in the corner and this time she wasn’t even finished getting dressed. “Will we even go the new club now,” she wondered.
She dared to ask in her brattiest tone as she pulled her hair out of the way, “Can you zip me up so we can go to the club or should I just get undressed to stay in this damn corner?”
Knowing his brat all too well, he growled, “Undress and stay in the corner.”

She didn’t want to go to the club anyway.

Cherry Bomb

“Hello, dad. Hello, mom.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!
Hello world! I’m your wild girl.
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!”
The Runaways – Cherry Bomb

I don’t have the mindset to write anything especially deep or meaningful for this post. Oh sure, I thought of analogies about how life’s not a bowl of cherries. Instead, I just have a bunch of random stuff floating about my head as I think about cherries like how I just love cherries. I love cherry designs, cherry lips, and cherry flavored candy. I chose the song Cherry Bomb to quote from for a few reasons. I used Cherry Bomb as a display name for about a year a while back and loved it. I also loved the move about the band. Doing a bit of a retro look with cherries everywhere, it just seemed the natural thing to do.
As I sit here thinking about cherries, I’m reminded of the cherry eating scene from the movie Witches of Eastwick and how they made that one lady throw up cherry pits during church. Don’t yell at me about spoilers, either, cuz if you haven’t seen that movie by now…well…just shame on you. *laughs*
The outfit is from Pretty Mess and can be obtained at the current round of Collabor88, the subtle tattoo and adorable hair are currently at Vintage Fair. I just love how many gorgeous vintage designs can be found all across the grid at the moment. If you love dressing up and playing with the styles of yesteryears, there’s no better time to shop than now.
