letter to God

"oh dear God i'm writing this letter to you
cause i don't have a clue
can you help me?
i'm sitting here
simply trying to figure out
what my life's all about
can you tell me?

i lie awake conducting this symphony
that you have gifted to me
but i don't ever sleep
don't get mad
cause i get weak inside
and i start to fall apart
cause i feel nothing

i never wanted to be
some kind of comic relief
please show me who i am
i been tortured and scorned
since the day that i was born
but i don't know who i am

oh dear God i'm writing this letter to you
cause i'm coming undone
please help me

between the covers

"between the covers of the books that no one had ever read again, in the old parchments damaged by dampness, a livid flower had prospered, and in the air that had been the purest and brightest in the house an unbearable smell of rotten memories floated."

-gabriel garcia marquez

above the smallness

"i dream of flight, not to be as the angels are, but to rise above the smallness of it all.  the smallness that i am.  against the daily death the iconography of wings."

you can get away from it

"where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to never was there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it."
