i embrace my shadow self

"i embrace my shadow self. shadows give depth and dimension to my life. i believe in embracing my duality, in learning to let darkness and light, peacefully co-exist, as illumination"

my beloved monster

"my beloved monster and me
we go everywhere together
wearing a raincoat that has four sleeves
gets us through all kinds of weather

she will always be the only thing
that comes between me and the awful sting
that comes from living in a world that's so damn mean…"

icarus wish

"sometimes i wish for falling
wish for the release
wish for falling through the air
to give me some relief
because falling's not the problem
when i'm falling i'm in peace
it's only when i hit the ground
it causes all the grief"

"my own brain is to me the most unaccountable of machinery-
always buzzing, humming, soaring, roaring, diving, and then
buried in mud.
and why?
what's this passion for?"

"my mission in life is to make everybody as uneasy as possible.
i think we should all be as uneasy as possible, because
that's what the world is like"
