Loving being poolside DAILY! Lost track of selfie Sunday i guess...So selfie Monday? On vacay in Florida, my first time ever and second vacay in 22 years, i still always keep my closest friends in my pocket! My super chula Wondertwin @jengiebean has selflessly taken over many of my Admin duties to give me a somewhat real break ️ And @_stealyourthunder_ surprised me by sending back this edit...he might be happier for me than i am for myself to have this opportunity with my family ️ I am thanking you both from the bottom of my heart bc i love you guys so much! .

"I put ketchup on my scrambled eggs
And everybody thinks it's funny
I don't get mad
I don't laugh cause you don't shave your legs
But everybody thinks it's funny
No need to get mad
I don't spend my time with anyone
Who doesn't think I'm wonderful
Or somewhat cash refundable at times
Now I'm out here counting airplanes
Trying to make sense of the change
And I don't wanna be just anybody
So don't try to figure me out
I won't try to figure you out
I don't wanna be some average anybody
Now I got friends that ride into the storm
And ride out of the storm with nothing
They rode into the storm with
And there seems to be a price for everything
You get what you pay for then you pay for
What you already thought you bought before
When you're up between the new sky line
The city lights and the warm sunshine
It's a long way down
When you can count on one hand what you love
And can count on who you love to help you on your long way down
You end up counting airplanes
Trying to keep up with these changes
I don't wanna be with anybody else
So don't try to figure me out
I won't try to figure you out
I don't wanna be some average anybody"

"You cast me in the shadows
Thinking she wont know
When she asks you questions
Vague reassurance you will throw
If there ever is a doubt
You will quickly shut it down
Making jokes, having fun
Reminding her she wears a crown.
Who do you think you're fooling?
It is none of us, you see
We just can't let you fade into
A simple memory
So we let you play our hearts
And make us think you're there
When all you really do is charm us
Into the temptation of an affair
You are confident and cunning
Giving the right answers for it all
Knowing just when and how to duck out
When all of the chips fall
She knows about me
And i know about her
We keep a watchful eye "Nothing to worry about," you reassure
I think it's time you let one go
Go on, set one of us free
However, we each just sit and hope
"Please don't let it be me!" ~ɱعℓı

My sister and her husband dropped by my house yesterday to bring a gift to my kidlets. The kidlets LOVE their "nernie cleaners" ! Most of my camera roll at any given time is weighted heavily on the side of photos of my kidlets. I think I show a lot of self-control in not over posting them here. However, once in a while, I just must indulge in the cuteness because I can't stand it!!!!!! Please bear with me on this collage

You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah
We chased our pleasures here
Dug our treasures there
But can you still recall
The time we cried
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Yeah!
C'mon, yeah
Everybody loves my baby
Everybody loves my baby
She get(s high)
She get(s high)
She get(s high)
She get(s high)
I found an island in your arms
Country in your eyes
Arms that chain
Eyes that lie
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through, oww!
Oh, yeah!
Made the scene
Week to week
Day to day
Hour to hour
The gate is straight
Deep and wide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"

Asked by my incredibly talented friend Heinrich to collaborate i was thrilled but had a hard time deciding which photo to edit. If you saw my previous post, you saw the bnw edit i did with his shot for his @darkinstacptguy account. I hope you will visit BOTH of Heinrich's accounts as you will NOT be disappointed! He also edited two of my photos (one on each account) and did an amazing job! Thank you for the honour Heinrich!

When my incredibly talented friend Heinrich asked me to collaborate with him i was beyond honoured! I absolutely love all of his work! Finding it difficult to choose just one of the amazing photographs he was allowing me to edit, I chose two. One for his black-and-white account and one for his regular account. I hope i am presenting his work in good light since bnw is my weakness. Please check out his amazing bnw account and our colour collaboration later this eve. (Btw, Heinrich will also be editing my photos for his accounts...i can hardly wait to see!) .

meliromero ️ Those of you who REALLY know me, know what a big step this is for me...this is me, ALL OF ME, during an explore in February.
"And, what’s more, this ‘precious’ body, the very same that is hooted and honked at, demeaned both in daily life as well as in ever existing form of media, harrassed, molested, raped, and, if all that wasn’t enough, is forever poked and prodded and weighed and constantly wrong for eating too much, eating too little, a million details which all point to the solitary girl, to EVERY solitary girl, and say: Destroy yourself.

  •   meliromero @darlene_arney03 thank you ;) i really appreciate it, this was hard for me 2w
  •   darlene_arney03 Anytime :) We are always the hardest on ourselves aren't we? :) just like who you are and that all that really matters :) ♡ 2w
  •   meliromero @darlene_arney03 just saw this as im trying to catch up! Agreed with everything you just wrote. However, that is the tricky part for me. I feel like what I look like is not really who I am anymore. A disparity has developed so that I am having a difficult time accepting. Rather, I refuse to accept it. However, i am improving that situation daily ;) thank you again 1w
  •   meliromero @mimiwings @sitte @segamanasingha @fridakitten @_paintedzebra thank you so much ️ sorry for the group hug but IG is suddenly giving me a hard time w limit caps on my tracking app. I hope it can be fixed as you know i prefer to reply individually 1w

"There's a Red House over yonder
That's where my baby stays
There's a Red House over yonder, baby
That's where my baby stays
Well, I ain't been home to see my baby,
in ninety nine and one half days.
'Bout time I see her,
Wait a minute something's wrong here
The key won't unlock the door.
Wait a minute something's wrong baby,
Lord, have mercy, this key won't unlock this door,
something's goin' on here.
I have a bad bad feeling
that my baby don't live here no more.
That's all right, I still got my guitar
Look out now . . .
I might as well go on back down
go back 'cross yonder over the hill
I might as well go back over yonder
way back over yonder 'cross the hill,
(That's where I came from.)
'Cause if my baby don't love me no more,
I know her sister will!"

Barely breathing,
More than used,
Left behind,
Badly abused.
I take in the stale air,
The wheezing i hear,
Life is not fair,
I wish mom was near.
Every gasp i take
Is hard to bear,
The sounds i can't make
A scream i don't dare.
I always thought i'd die young,
But i just kept on
Year after year,
One of life's pawns.
Gone are the thrills,
No more need for frills,
Left with the chills,
Breathing through these
Rusty gills.

    I want to go
    I want to get out
    All guns are loaded
    And have gone off now
    I'm channeling 17 dead revolutions
    That have long gave up the ghost
    One drink of water and I'm drowning
    The space between the dime and the dollar
    The space between the city and the suburb
    Some kid took another kid
    Pumped him full of holes
    Just to see a new horizon
    One drink of water and i'm drowning in it
    Not alright
    Downed city downed city
    Two and two sawed in two 6d
  •   meliromero @quietplaceinspace how i sooooo love Fugazi! Great pairing 3d
