Favorite Quote:
"Love me for my ugly, for my pretty is deceitful"


Blinded eyes swimming in a sea black as tar
No reason to turn when you're left in the dark
As the prophecy states, you will pay for the sins of those before you
Cruel and unusual, I know
What once filled you up was stolen in the blink of an eye. Maybe faster.

It's hollow to say the least
And dart after dart piercing where there's still feeling left
Happiness is fleeting
A mere fish hook
The Devil's bait
How it enslaves you
A lush for sweet sweet poison
Far worse than the damage crank would cause
Pure, love is, 'till they breathe their bitter rancid breath on it
Like new fallen snow violated by feet.

Inevitable
Forever does not exist for us
To 'be' dead
Impossible
Can't 'be' anything if you're extinct.

And what is instinct for if we cannot escape death?
We're not here for a reason. We're just here. And then we expire.

Karma.

Yet another lie.

Bad is bound to happen.

Happiness is fleeting
for it disturbs the natural order of things.

Happiness is fleeting
And life is a
joke
