So I took a bit of a hiatus from SL.  I’ve been logging in occasionally to say hi to some friends, but most times I’ve been afk playing some other games.  I think it’s a good thing to take a break from time to time.  SL can be an amazing place, but it can also be a toxic one.  Especially when you’re already kind of in toxic place emotionally or mentally personally, which I have been.  At least I’m self aware! lol

This picture was intended to be done and posted as my “anti-Valentine’s Day” post for Valentine’s Day, but RL got in the way.  Also, I’ve come to realize…photoshop and creativity is a bit of a skill you kind of lose if you don’t practice it on a regular basis lol.  Hopefully I’ll get back into the picture thing and start posting some more stuff.

While this picture probably seems completely random in a way, it actually tells a story.  Well, more it was inspired by one of my favorite songs from 1990.  Yes, as I admit that fact, I also realize I’m revealing just how old I am lol.  The song is The Beast by Concrete Blonde.  Never heard of them?  I’m sure you’ve heard their song Joey.  That’s what they’re most known for.  But the song this picture inspired was my favorite song on their Bloodletting album (that had the song Joey on it).  Even as a young lass, the lyrics hit home with me, which probably explains why I have such a fucked up view about love & relationships as an adult haha.  Anywhoooo…this is how I picture Love, aka The Beast, celebrating his Valentine’s Day.  Sipping his cocktail in a tub full of bubbles, with your bleeding heart in his hands…


The Beast by Concrete Blonde

(lyrics)

The prey of the beast
Screamed bloody murder
The line is so fine
Between hoping and hurting
Former believers they beg for release
As love looking down on them
Smiles and picks his teeth
Trapped in between Heaven and hell
He knows all the secrets
You don’t want to tell
There’s nowhere to run
And there’s nowhere to hide
Love knows you all too well
He will find you

Love is the ghost
Haunting your head
Love is the killer
You thought was your friend
Love is the creature
Who lives in the dark
Sneak up and stick you
And painfully pick you apart

Love is a poet
Love sings the songs
Pointing his finger
You follow along
Voices are calling
The monster wants out of you
Paws you and claws you
You try not to fall

Love is the leech
Sucking you up
Love is a vampire
Drunk on your blood
Love is the beast
That will tear out your heart
Hungrily lick it
And painfully pick it apart

Love is the leech
Sucking you up
Love is a vampire
Drunk on your blood
Love is the beast
That will tear out your heart
Hungrily lick it
And painfully pick it apart

Love is the ghost
Haunting your head
Love is the killer
You thought was your friend
Love is the creature
Who lives in the dark
Sneak up and stick you
And painfully pick you apart
