could be an organ donor, the way i give up my heart

you're really loving this aren't you dear, now you've got me on the ropes out here
with nowhere else to run to now, just stay and face the music
it'll all tie me up into knots
-cartwheels, the reindeer section


i think of you
in slippery seconds,
in quicksand memories.
in lonely crowds,
and quiet parks.
in silver sunbeams
and winter grays.
i think of you
and i think of me
and i think
of how it came to be,
that i think of you
when i think of me.

if i could turn around, i would tonight

love it isn't safe, you give it a knife and watch it maim
love it isn't free, you can buy it off
- give it a knife, paul michel


and together
we'll burn up
and out
like a dying galaxy
of infinite stars
forever never.

"what i want is to be needed. what i need is to be indispensable to somebody.
who i need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention.
Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction." - Chuck Palahniuk
