Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

There are things we never tell anyone. We want to but we can’t. So we write them down. Or we paint them. Or we sing about them. It’s our only option. To remember. To attempt to discover the truth. Sometimes we do it to stay alive. These things, they live inside of us. They are the secrets we stash in our pockets and the weapons we carry like guns across our backs. And in the end we have to decide for ourselves when these things are worth fighting for, and when it’s time to throw in the towel. Sometimes a person has to die in order to live. Deep down, I know you know this. You just can’t seem to do anything about it. I guess it’s a sad fact of life that some of us move on and some of us inevitably stay behind. Only in this case I’m not sure which one of us is doing which. You were right about one thing though. It’s not fate. It’s a choice. And who knows, maybe we’ll meet again someday, somewhere up above all the noise. Until then, when you think of me, try and remember the good stuff. Try and remember the love.

In an effort to get people to look
into each other’s eyes more,
and also to appease the mutes,
the government has decided
to allot each person exactly one hundred
and sixty-seven words, per day.

When the phone rings, I put it to my ear
without saying hello. In the restaurant
I point at chicken noodle soup.
I am adjusting well to the new way.

Late at night, I call my long distance lover,
proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn’t respond,
I know she’s used up all her words,
so I slowly whisper I love you
thirty-two and a third times.

After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.

The things you own, end up owning you.



With a gun barrel between your teeth, you speak only in vowels.

I am Jack’s smirking revenge.

It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.

When you have insomnia you’re never really asleep and you’re never really awake.



And then, something happened. I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. Losing all hope was freedom.

Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away. The Queen is their slave.

Only after disaster can we be resurrected.

The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.
