Touch Them

Kim Addonizio is my absolute favorite modern day poet. She’s got the most beautiful soul and her poetry comes from a very raw place. I was fortunate enough to meet her in Portland, OR many years ago. If you like poetry, even if you don’t, I really suggest you look into her work.  So, I’m sharing this one below and I hope you will find some more of her work to enjoy on your own.

First Poem for You
by Kim Addonizio

I like to touch your tattoos in complete
darkness, when I can’t see them. I’m sure of
where they are, know by heart the neat
lines of lightning pulsing just above
your nipple, can find, as if by instinct, the blue
swirls of water on your shoulder where a serpent
twists, facing a dragon. When I pull you

to me, taking you until we’re spent
and quiet on the sheets, I love to kiss
the pictures in your skin. They’ll last until
you’re seared to ashes: whatever persists
or turns to pain between us, they will still
be there. Such permanence is terrifying.
So I touch them in the dark; but touch them, trying.

Feelings

I appreciate when my friends are compassionate and tell me that I should not feel guilty about something I’ve done or been part of by suggesting it was not my fault. Sadly, whether I am at fault or not, if I played a part in something that makes me FEEL guilty. I’m going to feel guilty. Nothing is going to change that until I forgive myself. People in SL love to warn other people about each other. I get it. If you are truly concerned about me, you want to protect me. However, how can you truly know how one person will be with me? Your experience is yours, not mine. So many times, I’ve been warned about someone I dated. The things I was warned about never happened to me. So, let me make my mistakes and stop trying to infect me with your fears. Furthermore, your enemies are not my enemies just because they are yours. If I choose to dislike someone, it is of my own accord, not because you told me to. This does not mean I am disloyal to you. It means I have a mind of my own. You can not wear a tag, proclaim to be something and expect me to respect your so called title or self appointed position in life, especially in SL. If you get my respect, you earned it. If you don’t deserve it, you sure as hell won’t get it.
I don’t need you permission to feel anything. I don’t need your permission to laugh, to cry, or even be hysterical. You do not live in my mind, you cannot possibly understand it the way you think you do. I joke around a lot about doing what I want, but in all seriousness? I DO WHAT I FUCKING WANT! You do not get to shame me for the way I speak, write, laugh, dance, flirt, or anything else. Your approval is not required, nor is it necessary. If you like me, fine. If you don’t, you are free to walk away. No one is going to beg you to stay. I’ve only chased one person in my life. I caught him, then I could hardly get rid of him. Now he’s dead. The lessons learned were mine, not yours. If you think I’m going to chase you for any reason, you’re in for a very long wait.
I’m not suggesting I will never ask for opinions or advice. I’m merely saying that I am in charge of my feelings, no one else. So, if I don’t feel guilt when you think I should….or I do feel guilty when you think I shouldn’t….fuck off and don’t tell me how to feel, motherfucker!

Demons

Sometimes I’m just at a loss for words, but its as if musicians have crawled into my soul and done it for me. So, yes, this is another song post, but this particular song is pure poetry. I feel it wrapping around me like an invisible shroud.

Jacob Lee – Demons

My heart is weak
Tear it down piece by piece
Leave me to think
Deep in my structure
I think I still love her
But I need some sleep
You’ve taken my breath away
Now I want to breathe
Cause I cannot see what you can see
So easily
I thought my demons were almost defeated
But you took their side
And you pull them to freedom
I kept your secrets and I thought that
You would do the same
Leave me in peace
Caught in my memories
Lost underneath
Deep in my structure
I feel a rupture
From where she should be
You’ve taken my breath from me
Now I want to breathe
Cause I cannot see what you can see
So easily
I thought my demons were almost defeated
But you took their side
And you pull them to freedom
They know my secrets and won’t let me go
Won’t let me go
I thought my demons were almost defeated
But you took their side
And you pull them to freedom
I kept your secrets and I thought that
You would do the same

“No, I don’t have to tell a soul about this, I promised myself. When you are a kid, you don’t know yet that a secret, like an animal, can evolve. Like an animal, a secret can develop a self-preserving intelligence. Shaglike, mute and thick, a knowledge with a fur: your secret.”
― Karen RussellSwamplandia!

That’s just a really deep quote from one of my favorite books. It stands all on its own and makes beautiful, perfect sense to me. In the book, the context is quite complex. I’ve not met anyone else that’s ever read it though. I chose the quote for personal reasons, but the book it comes from kinda fits the picture…so, yeah, that’s about it. *laughs*

Olivia

Sometimes music is the only thing that gets me through the hard times. This emotional roller coaster I’m on…well, I am so grateful for musicians. I recently told a dear friend of mine that we thank our soldiers for all they do for our country, but we rarely thank the musicians for what they do for our souls. I, for one, would be lost without music. That’s probably why I’ve relied so heavily on music when it came to blogging, these past two weeks. However, I’m going to take a break from that. I’m going climb out of this abyss of self pity and self loathing, because its just not good. Fine, I felt my feelings and yes, I’ve been working through them, but I can’t keep wallowing in them. I’m either going to write about them or move on.

In the picture below, I’m showing you the back of the latest dress from Chic Moda, Olivia dress and scarf. It is absolutely adorable from the front and plenty of bloggers are showing it off. However, I see my avatar from the back more often than not and I was so tickled with the details on the back. The ribbon and the buttons. I had to show this side of Sassy’s stunning design. It’s got a subtle asymmetrical hem line which allows for quite a bit of creativity when posing for photos. You can wear the accompanying scarf and add your own. You can grabs yours at Tres Chic and please remember to demo!!
Happy Shopping!♥

Dangerous Proposition

Alright, so its been happening to me a lot lately, that I’m hitting a wall when it comes to something to write about. I know, that may come as quite a shock to some of my friends as I’m usually quite chatty with them, but for some reasons I’ve really struggled with things to say lately. I’d hate to turn my blog into nothing but pictures and songs. However, at the rate I’m going these days I fear that may soon become the case. So, for those of you that actually read my blog, I am asking you to submit some questions or topics for me to write about. No matter how silly or insane, I will make it a point to write SOMETHING about whatever is suggested. So, toss me a comment below or on my Facebook page and I will give it my best shot! I fear this is a dangerous proposition, because some of you might give me something insane, but I’m going to do it…so there’s the challenge!

Help Yourself by Helping Others

“The best way to cheer yourself up, is to cheer somebody else up.” -Mark Twain

I believe this to be true wholeheartedly. For ages, people have figured out that the best way to get out of you own head is to help other people. When we sit too long in our own problems we can drown in them and find ourselves so lost that we begin to lose hope. It’s when we lose hope that we truly become miserable and that is when we are the most dangerous…to ourselves and everyone around us. Our misery makes us toxic. Think about how good it feels to help someone in need. I don’t mean dropping a few dollars into the bucket with the bell ringers at the holidays. I mean, to support a friend and watch them succeed. I mean, to hand a meal to a homeless person. I mean opening our hearts and genuinely helping someone that is going through something so wretched, that we can’t begin to fathom the road on which they travel.
We’ve all had things go terribly wrong from time to time. We’ve all watched someone else suffering and felt absolutely helpless from the sidelines, especially in a virtual world. However, there is something happening right now that could forever change someone’s life in such a wonderful way. It hasn’t started yet, but it shall begin soon. In the meantime, I want to spread the word and I hope that you will, too. A dear friend of mine has undergone the unthinkable this year and despite it all, she has maintained the same positive attitude that made so many of us love her from the very beginning. I won’t go deep into it here, but if you’d like to help someone that not only needs help…and would never in a million years ask….there’s about to be a fundraising event and there’s something for everyone. For more information, please visit the Facebook page: For the love of the Devil

This Dress

Sometimes an outfit just inspires a photo, but the only words are about the outfit itself. This is one of those times. *shrugs* The new Serenity dress from United Colors can be picked up at the latest round of Tres Chic. This dress is to die for, as it comes with so many options, its almost impossible to pass up the fatpack for this one. First of all, it can be a full length gown or a short club dress like you see here. There’s a cross over in the front with the option of making the right bra cup sheer, not to mention the six color options for the bottom as well as both breasts. There’s also a materials on/off option! So, yes, you can do like I did and make it monotone, but for those that want to mix it up, there are plenty of fun ways to do that, too. Oh, almost forgot to mention, there’s color options for the straps, too! I just can’t imagine any sexy woman’s inventory could be complete without it. ♥
