Annihilated

I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
The bright sun was extinguish’d, and the stars
Did wander darkling in the eternal space,
Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth
Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air;
Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day,
And men forgot their passions in the dread
Of this their desolation; and all hearts
Were chill’d into a selfish prayer for light:
And they did live by watchfires—and the thrones,
The palaces of crowned kings—the huts,
The habitations of all things which dwell,
Were burnt for beacons; cities were consum’d,
And men were gather’d round their blazing homes
To look once more into each other’s face;
Happy were those who dwelt within the eye
Of the volcanos, and their mountain-torch:
A fearful hope was all the world contain’d;
Forests were set on fire—but hour by hour
They fell and faded—and the crackling trunks
Extinguish’d with a crash—and all was black.
The brows of men by the despairing light
Wore an unearthly aspect, as by fits
The flashes fell upon them; some lay down
And hid their eyes and wept; and some did rest
Their chins upon their clenched hands, and smil’d;
And others hurried to and fro, and fed
Their funeral piles with fuel, and look’d up
With mad disquietude on the dull sky,
The pall of a past world; and then again
With curses cast them down upon the dust,
And gnash’d their teeth and howl’d: the wild birds shriek’d
And, terrified, did flutter on the ground,
And flap their useless wings; the wildest brutes
Came tame and tremulous; and vipers crawl’d
And twin’d themselves among the multitude,
Hissing, but stingless—they were slain for food.
And War, which for a moment was no more,
Did glut himself again: a meal was bought
With blood, and each sate sullenly apart
Gorging himself in gloom: no love was left;
All earth was but one thought—and that was death
Immediate and inglorious; and the pang
Of famine fed upon all entrails—men
Died, and their bones were tombless as their flesh;
The meagre by the meagre were devour’d,
Even dogs assail’d their masters, all save one,
And he was faithful to a corse, and kept
The birds and beasts and famish’d men at bay,
Till hunger clung them, or the dropping dead
Lur’d their lank jaws; himself sought out no food,
But with a piteous and perpetual moan,
And a quick desolate cry, licking the hand
Which answer’d not with a caress—he died.
The crowd was famish’d by degrees; but two
Of an enormous city did survive,
And they were enemies: they met beside
The dying embers of an altar-place
Where had been heap’d a mass of holy things
For an unholy usage; they rak’d up,
And shivering scrap’d with their cold skeleton hands
The feeble ashes, and their feeble breath
Blew for a little life, and made a flame
Which was a mockery; then they lifted up
Their eyes as it grew lighter, and beheld
Each other’s aspects—saw, and shriek’d, and died—
Even of their mutual hideousness they died,
Unknowing who he was upon whose brow
Famine had written Fiend. The world was void,
The populous and the powerful was a lump,
Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless—
A lump of death—a chaos of hard clay.
The rivers, lakes and ocean all stood still,
And nothing stirr’d within their silent depths;
Ships sailorless lay rotting on the sea,
And their masts fell down piecemeal: as they dropp’d
They slept on the abyss without a surge—
The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave,
The moon, their mistress, had expir’d before;
The winds were wither’d in the stagnant air,
And the clouds perish’d; Darkness had no need
Of aid from them—She was the Universe.

A Game, anyone?

A Game Anyone?

I do love to be beside the seaside!

As a youngster I used to play on the volleyball team at school, I was a dangerous player at the net being able to jump and being tall the opposition used to hate seeing me line up across the net. I used to love it. I never played on a beach till I was much older though and I loved it even more, the sand is much more forgiving than hard gym floors.

Once again Reve Obscura has nailed an awesome bento pose, including the ball the pose is a great addition to anyones library this summer.

White Knights has opened again at The Avenue for another round and MOoH has released these shorts there  at a reduced price, I love the colour packs that come in these shorts also, so grab some up in ready for your summer holidays.

Fameshed Go is a fab event that rewards you for heading into designers stores and buying the items released for the event, you collect points where you can then head to the Fameshed Go Room and points make prizes!

This cute but sexy top is one of those releases from Masoom, I love the colour options in the fatpack, including this Silver.

You’re in my head like dum-dum-da-da-da

Dum-dum-da-da-da-dum, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-dum, dum-dum
What you, what you gonna do?

You’re my discretional sin
I feel you on me when I touch my skin
You got me hooked and you’re reeling me in
When I look in your eyes, I’m on the edge

You’re on my mind like a song that I can’t escape
I don’t know how many da-da-dums I can take
I need to know if you’re feeling, feeling the same
Is it too late?

But now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do
I tell myself I’m not that into you
But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after 3

You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-dum, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-dum, dum-dum-da-da-da
You’re in my head like

Dum-dum-da-da-da-dum, dum-dum-da-da-da

You’re my obsession, my truth
I come alive whenever I’m with you
And now I dialed your number again
And you come over and over, and then

You’re on my mind like a song that I can’t escape
I don’t know how many da-da-dums I can take
I need to know if you’re feeling, feeling the same
Is it too late?

But now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do
I tell myself I’m not that into you
But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after 3
And now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a thing we make
We’re skin on skin, I need this spell to break
But I don’t wanna go and I know that you know

You’re in my head like
