Once upon the 90's there was an alternative webring, now defunct, by the name of Love, Lies, Bleeding. The username was lovelies, and I took to using that not as an online monicker, but as a username to a lot of web-services. Livejournal was one of them.
Lovelies are the lies told in the name of love.
What lovelies does not refer to:
The Elton John song Love Lies Bleeding
The Australian band Love Lies Bleeding
Any of the dozen movies titled Love Lies Bleeding
The flower Amaranthus caudatus, Love-lies-bleeding
Any attempt to pluralize and nouni-fy the word 'lovely'
And I do not hope for a better world for anyone
In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others
I want no one to escape
But even after admitting this,
There is no catharsis
My punishment continues to elude me
And I gain no deeper knowledge of myself
No new knowledge can be extracted from my telling
This confession has meant nothing
-- Brett Easton Ellis
