Favorite Quote:
"As I hide behind these books I read, while scribbling my poetry,
like art could save a wretch like me, with some ideal ideology that no one can hope to achieve.
And I am never real; it is just a sketch of me.
And everything I made is trite and cheap and a waste of paint, of tape, of time." - Bright Eyes

Disappointment is the name of the game
It's a game we each play--day by day
Hiding in the darkest shadows of this cage called your brain
We'll chase the ones who walk away
Keep loving the ones who cause us pain
Sitting alone as you whither--decay
It shall never change
History repeats as memories fade
Things stay the same
Such a sad, sad, bitter shame
I'm so sick of this game
