One day you fall for this boy. And he touches you with his fingers. And he burns holes in your skin with his mouth. And it hurts when you look at him. And it hurts when you don’t. And it feels like someone’s cut you open with a jagged piece of glass, and then you realized you always felt that way.
Never blame anyone in your life. Good people give you happiness. Bad people give you experience. Worst people give you a lesson. Best people give you memories.
Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.

"And then, something happened. I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom. "

"You are not your job. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fuckin' khakis. You are the all singing all dancing crap of the world"

"Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need."
I miss you. I missed you even when I was with you. That’s been my problem. I miss what I already have, and I surround myself with things that are missing.
So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them.
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
Some people
are uncomfortable
with silences. Not me.
I’ve never cared much
for call and response.
Sometimes I will think of
something to say and then
I ask myself; is it worth it?
And it just isn’t.
Think of how many people have sat next to you on a bus, train, whatever. Now think how many people have sat next to you on purpose with their fingers crossed in hope that you’ll talk to them. I’m sure somebody has. There’s plenty of times when somebody’s seen you and hoped that you spoke to them, but you never did because you don’t have the guts and neither do they. Don’t go around thinking nobody likes you and that you’re not loved. There’s been plenty of times when a stranger has spotted you and thought “Oh, they’re just my type” but haven’t had the courage or confidence to open their mouth and initiate a conversation. The funny thing is - neither have you.

Writers are forgetful,
but they remember everything.
They forget appointments and anniversaries,
but remember what you wore,
how you smelled,
on your first date...
They remember every story you’ve ever told them -
like ever,
but forget what you’ve just said.
They don’t remember to water the plants
or take out the trash,
but they don’t forget how
to make you laugh.

Writers are forgetful
because
they’re busy
remembering
the important things.
I’m tired of my life, my clothes, the things I say. I’m hacking away at the surface, as at some kind of gray ice, trying to break through to what is underneath or I am dead. I can feel the surface trembling—it seems ready to give in but it never does. I am uninterested in current events. How can I justify this? How can I explain it?
The castor plant (Ricinus communis, Euphorbiaceae) currently holds the Guinness World Record for most poisonous plant. 5-8 seeds is the human lethal dose.
