I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.
—George Carlin (via originalgiantcontent)
Alone is a familiar thing to me
Distance from friends
Feeling left behind
I know it’s me, there is something missing and they sense it
I let this happen over and over
It’s not their fault
Maybe when I stop hating myself
I want this but I don’t know how to stop lying
To me, my own worst enemy
-Neal Shusterman, Bruiser
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
—Fyodor Dostoevsky (via luniversale)
The years beat down our rage
into a quiet sorrow.
People talk of the weather
and what they ate for lunch.
I drink beer in a quiet room
and outside the rain
falls down in a fine
and steady mist.
Today there is an emptiness
that touches everything
but I bear it no grudge.
Things fall apart
as they always have,
there’s nothing new in this.
I breathe in
existing in the moment
and waiting for the next.
what if tattoos just randomly appeared on our skin at key points in our lives and we had to figure out what they meant for ourselves
That would suck cause most of my tattoos have absolutely no meaning.
“I don’t need a new love, or a new life. Just a better place to die.”
