It’s worthless. My heart is open, rent like the veil in antiquity. From top to bottom, from the inside out, the whole of my existence is tarnished by my pain, knowing what you willingly subject yourself to. This poison will never make it better. This filth will never call you friend. Is a friend someone who takes and takes, and never gives? I’m content to live, and let live, but I can’t let you live if you’re dying. To say that there’s any way this could help would be the utmost in lying. And I’m not trying to live your life for you, I’m simply stating a fact that this could never make you better. There’s so much more to life than this poison hid in honey. This cannot offer consequence save need and harsh addiction. This wall that you will one day build will seal you in four ways, and odds are, you’ll never come away from where it will make you go.
Rashly do I offer words
To speak and to be heard
And though I go yet undisturbed
My ruin signed and sealed
Shall offer up my soul
And I shall remain unwhole
I cannot say I was not told
Oh a fool, I will not heal
I’ll remain in this decay
And I’ll suffer my chosen fate
And I’ll rot while still I live
For such wisdom did I hate
All I see is my own failing
In wild waters, I was sailing
All with lightning and hailing
But I counted myself strong
Shall I walk back where I go?
Or shall I stay here? No one knows
Will I die here all alone?
And I said, “I fight for the users. The ones who have need, who are mired in filth and decay. The ones who struggle with a need that isn’t a need, just a hunger manifesting itself as a need. It’s a desire we aren’t meant to bear. Just save us from this. God, save us from this.

Brett Griffin, this is why I love you.
This is a bad picture, so I’ll try to take a better one when its healed, but I was pretty stoked on how Zack’s knee came out tonight.
Blake is freaking unreal, it looks quite a bit better now that it’s clean. Hopefully he didn’t hide a penis or “Blake” anywhere in there…haha
I’ll give you fair warning, I’m sailing off in a sea of discontentment,
I’m sailing off in a sea of my illusions.
Were there whispers of a thought that never should
Have shown its face among a sleepless city?
Was the wind its carriage returning it to me?
I cast it aside; against hope, my hope had held that he should hide himself.
Alas, that this evil night should pass under my thoughts.
The howling hound is tamed to just a gentle gust,
And yet his unintended passenger returns to my window pane.
Yet this thought, cast away so forcefully, should reinstate itself
In so eager a recipient; he welcomes that which he evicted.
But a word at which I might cower, altogether mighty yet frail beyond description
Holding power unduly, bearing no substance: my lust, my fatal flaw.
An all-consuming fire; I fall like rock from sky.
Dust against the wind; I crash as waves upon a shore.
I sold my wares to many buyers, entrapped myself with many fires,
And yet I never saw such wrong as in another’s speck.
I offered my hands to everywhere, some to here, and some to there,
But I have since withdrawn and mended the soul that was a wreck
Now I lay my hands to rest, my soul barest, whole undressed
For I never could have hidden who I truly am from you.
Is it really too hard to believe that my intention is not to get into with you? Please don’t assume that’s what I want, or that it’s what you need to offer me in order for me to like you. I’d rather have a beautiful mind than a beautiful body, but a sweet smile and some sparkling eyes don’t hurt either. So value yourself, and exercise your right to say no, and to keep saying no, until someone worth it proves themself to you. Love conquers all.
Tumble, Tweet, update, whatever the fuck you think is going to make your life more interesting. Yeah, we do these thing to spew our thoughts, but they shouldn’t be our lives. There’s a sun, a moon, skies, stars, and a bunch of interesting things out there. Go and live. Life is short. Too short for a fucking computer screen all day.
