“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered.
But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written.
We adjust to new conditions and discoveries.
We are pliable.
Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum.
I am my own god.
We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system.
We are here to drink beer.
We are here to kill war.
We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”

If you’d like to walk a while
We could waste the day
Follow me into the trees
I will lead the way

Bring some change up to the bridge
Bring some alcohol
There we’ll make a final wish
Just before the fall

Promise I will be forever yours
Promise not to say another word
Nevermind whats done is done
Always was a lucky one

Watch the sunrise all alone
Sitting on the tracks
Hear the train come roaring in
Never coming back

Laying quiet in the grass
Everything is still
River stones and broken bones
Scattered on the hill

Promise I will be forever yours
Promise not to say another word
Here forever deep beneath the dirt
Nevermind whats done is done
Always was a lucky one

“If you asked me now who I am, the only answer I could give with any certainty would be my name.For the rest: my loves, my hates, down even to my deepest desires, I can no longer say whether these emotions are my own, or stolen from those I once so desperately wished to be”

-Evelyn Waugh

cold feet, don’t fail me now
so much left to do
if i should run ten thousand miles home
would you be there?

just a taste of things to come
i still still smile

but i don’t wanna die alone
i don’t wanna die alone
way before my time

keep calm and carry on
no worse for the wear

i don’t wanna die alone
i don’t wanna die alone
way before my time

is it any wonder
all this empty air
i’m drowning in the laughter
way before my time has come

the flesh covers the bone
and they put a mind
in there and
sometimes a soul,
and the women break
vases against the walls
and the men drink too
much
and nobody finds the
one
but keep
looking
crawling in and out
of beds.
flesh covers
the bone and the
flesh searches
for more than
flesh.

there’s no chance
at all:
we are all trapped
by a singular
fate.

nobody ever finds
the one.

the city dumps fill
the junkyards fill
the madhouses fill
the hospitals fill
the graveyards fill

nothing else
fills.

-charles bukowski

you say “i love you, boy”
i know you lie
i trust you all the same
i don’t know why
cause when my back is turned
my bruises shine
our broken fairytale
so hard to hide

i still believe it’s you and me ’til the end of time
when we collide we come together
if we don’t we’ll always be apart
i’ll take a bruise; i know you’re worth it
when you hit me hit me hard

my dearest friend
if you dont mind
i’d like to join you by your side
where we can gaze
into the stars
and sit together
now and forever
for it is plain
as anyone can see
we’re simply meant to be

time it was, and what a time it was, it was
a time of innocence, a time of confidences 
long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
preserve your memories, they’re all that’s left you
