I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

"I'll have you know i'm scared to death

that everything that you had said to me was just
a lie until you left
now i'm hoping just a little bit stronger
hold me up just a little bit longer
i'll be fine, i swear"

You're all that I hoped I'd find
In every single way
And everything I could give
Is everything you couldn't take
Cause nothing feels like home, you're a thousand miles away
And the hardest part of living
Is just taking breaths to stay
Because I know I'm good for something
I just haven't found it yet
But I need it"

And this will be the first time in a week
That I'll talk to you, & I can't speak..
And I got the point that I should leave you alone,
But we both know that I'm not that strong
And I miss the lips that made me fly."

I really miss you and wish I could kiss you, but why are you so far away?
Since you've been gone, I've thought over and over about you inside my head
and where I went wrong, where I went wrong.
Every day, I've been thinking a lot about all of the things you'd say since I went away...
I guess I could call you and ask you "How are you?"
but I really don't have much to say...
I sit all alone and I stare at the phone and I hope that you're doing ok."
-the ataris-

I'm trying to believe in you;
but this world sold its fate for parking lots and drunk sincerity."

-the ataris-

Oh and what i wouldn't give
Just to kiss your lips again
To hold your hand next to my heart
And wake up with you in our apartment.
Just one last time
Can i call you my sweetheart?"
-the ataris-

"and know the next time that you
make a wish upon a star
I'll be wishing on the same one that you do
and every night I'm all alone
in some burn out highway town
I'll be thinking of the day that I met you."

-the ataris-

I wanted to believe in all the words that I was speaking,
As we moved together in the dark
And all the friends that I was telling
All the playful misspellings
and every bite I gave you left a mark
Tiny vessels oozed into your neck
And formed the bruises
That you said you didn't want to fade
But they did, and so did I that day...

So one last touch and then you'll go
And we'll pretend that it meant something so much more."


I will never forgive a single day
Mile markers seem to call my name and say,
"You're safer now
Through every town
We'll light your way in reflective green."


"But darling I want the same thing that I wanted before
So sweetheart tell me what's up I won't stop no way."

And everything that I said was true
as the flashes blinded us in the photobooth.
Well I lost track and then those words were said,
you took the wheel and you steered us into my bed,
and soon we woke and I walked you home
and it was pretty clear that it was hardly love."
