favorite band of all time

I sat and thought about her
On the train ride out
I felt my stomach turn
Like it's done for years now
I thought about her hips and thighs
With the red in my eyes
I felt my body burn

"get your hands off
of me,
things between us
are not the same
anymore"

i pull away and
think of something
sad from a book
or a movie...

"we can't do
this anymore"

or maybe a fitting
song lyric
written by someone
i feel i can relate to

"i'm just
going to leave"

one of my favorite
hobbies
is feeling sorry
for myself

it is second only
to recounting
memories

"We find that extreme joy and extreme sorrow kill equally; excessive and violent laughter sends the tears coursing from the eyes. It is a very common phenomenon in the world about us. Similarly with lovers: when they love each other with an equal ardour, and their mutual affection is intensely strong, they will turn against one another without any valid reason, each purposely contradicting the other in whatever he may say; they quarrel violently over the smallest things, each picking up every word that the other lets fall and willfully misinterpreting it. All these devices are aimed at testing and proving what each is seeking in the other."

- Ibn Hazam
