she's still out to get me

i'm not saying it's your fault
although you could have done more
oh you're so naive yet so
how could this be done
by such a smiling sweetheart
oh and your sweet and pretty face
in such an ugly way
something so beautiful that every time I look inside
I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
true or false it may be
she's still out to get me
just don't let me down

who's gonna keep my baby warm?

 my queen of the Bronx
blue eyes and spitfire
I saw you walking back and forth about another boy
thinking that you may want to leave
so give me the fevers that just won't break
and give me the children you don't want to raise
and tell me about the cool
he sings you in those songs
if it's better than my love then bring it on
and take it back out to the streets where you know you used to be
for the Romeos uptown if I bring you down
and you're tired of those vows and you're really walking out
stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home
i'm hearing that he tells you he can read your palms
is he better than my love?

Summerfest is here! It opened officially on the 20th and there's plenty of stuff for the ladies. Among Summerfest, Shiny Shabby also opened as well as The Fantasy Collective. Check out all these events to mark the end of the month must-sees off your list.

sad strong safe and sober

all our sins come back to haunt us in the end
to hang around and tap us on the shoulder and smile silent
it's all implied
you'll die trying to live this down
you might as well forget it
still i'm convinced that wondering 'what if' is the worst thing there is
so we bottled and shelved all our regrets
let them ferment and came back to our senses
drove back home and slept a few days
woke up and laughed at how stupid we used to be 

This is my first submission to The Hair Fair contest!

ways and means

arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street
Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street
your typical city involved in a typical daydream
hang it up and see what tomorrow brings

sometimes the light's all shining on me
other times I can barely see
lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it's been

I'll use my hands

one mile to every inch of
your skin like porcelain
one pair of candy lips and
your bubblegum tongue
and if you want love we'll make it
swim in a deep sea of blankets
take all your big plans and break them
this is bound to be a while
Collabor88 is open! I don't really need to say much more. I think that speaks for itself!

graceless heart

regrets collect like old friends
here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way
and all of the ghouls come out to play
and every demon wants his pound of flesh
but I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
it's always darkest before the dawn

This quick picture was inspired by Vix Nirvana from Storybook. I'm kind of amazed at how far she has come in such a short time. We were happy to welcome her to The Fantasy Collective when she first started creating again and since that time she has continued to get better with each release. But, don't take my word for it. Check out her flickr and see for yourself!

Admittedly, I don't normally do furniture or decorative blogging. But, I had a lot of fun today setting up my newly acquired parcel on the Pemberly sim. I went through a lot of different houses but the one that felt the most right was this shotgun from Trompe Loeil that was sold during one of the last few rounds of The Arcade. These houses are now out for sale at Trompe's main store in a gacha for only 25 linden a play. Honestly, at that price, why would you not own all of them already?

The floral gazebo you see in the side is from Zerkalo and is currently being sold at Fameshed. I caught Anais setting up and was in love at first sight. The mesh is really nicely done and the textures are gorgeous. If you're not a floral person, there's a vintage natural texture that can be purchased.

the real thing

I remember when my heart caught the fever
you were standing all alone in the summer heat 
I was with my boyfriend
my new boyfriend
he was as sweet as he could be 
but one look at you and I was through
my heart switched up on me
the meanest thing you ever did is come around
and now I'm ruined
