The Things People Don't Say

I’m for whatever gets you through the night.

"I know that life is whole and good,
but for me it doesn’t get into my blood,
it just goes straight up to my head."

"…but I am a phantasm,
a phantasm beyond belief,
a phantasm to the core."

"So the week slips or sticks through my fingers; rage, misery, joy, dulness, elation mix; I am the usual battlefield of emotions."

"Kiss me, lover. One darling kiss."

"If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already."

"He is ugly and sad… but he is all love."

"What kind of fuckery are we?"

"If I was my heart I’d rather be restless."

"It is so hard to realise one day that you’re meaningless. That no one needs you, though there you are, wanting to give of yourself."

Anonymous: Do you agree that happiness is the ultimate human end point in life?


No. Self-overcoming is. Experiencing your own humanity is. Loving the subtleties, fighting your own fight, letting go, communicating your heart, becoming who you are is

"I’ve often lost myself
in order to find the burn that keeps everything awake"

"The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love."

"But I tried, didn’t I? Goddamnit, at least I did that."

"There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand."
