Favorite Quote:
To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”


Find me when you're sober...
You're always drunk;
drunk from pain
drunk from ecstasy

Does it matter?

I hate the feeling of happiness next to me
Not mine.
Somebody else's.
Unconsciously tantalizing me
with every scandalous giggle.
Does that make me a horrible person?
It can't.
Or maybe I am.

Does it really matter?

I'm here just the same.
Predictable.
Rising like the sun
On a brisk Sunday morning.
Screaming like my thoughts on a lonely night.

Will it ever go away?
I doubt it.

It's disgusting.
He's disgusting-
ly beautiful.
Endlessly fascinating.
Unspeakably divine.
So please my dear,
Find me when you're sober....
Sober enough to see me.
