A sight slightly away from the beaten path. Hidden, somewhat- not without reason. Of embarrassment, of a fear of judgement. Perhaps uncharacteristic of a creature like I. Perhaps that confession is more embarrassing. Perhaps I'm not doing myself a favor by mentioning this.
This isn't everything, and it's not even all of the things that would be listed here. Many things that I have written down come from casual conversations and the like, overheard exchanges, my own words in moments of many feelings, or are simply just too personal, that have affected and stuck with me just as much as what you see here, and many even more. I don't wish to breach privacy, but their dear places in my heart deserve to be represented too, even if I cannot do them full justice here.
Turn on the light.
"You're a werewolf and I'm a full moon
And all your very worst enemies will be gone soon"
"Even as a child I know
That I'll never have friends like these again
Even as a child I know
And I'm giddy with companionship"
"The room is filled with people that love you"
"Don't forget, I'm with you in the dark"
"suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. and life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular."
"Safe in the light that surrounds me, free of the fear and the pain
My question in mind, has helped me to find the meaning in my life again
Victory is real, I finally feel at peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I'm here, it's perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means
If I die tomorrow, I'd be alright, because I believe:
That after we're gone, the spirit carries on"
"Receive the pain, but this isn't where this ends"
"I'm not your little boy,
"I wanna be okay"
"There is much pain in the world but not in this room"
"No matter how hard I try
I'm still not trying hard enough to be great"
"But he plays guitar much faster than me"
"I wanna be everyone's dependable guy
But no one knows just who to believe"
"Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other"
"raise a fist for the nameless faces he disgraces"
"You will always be the bitter, saddest part of me"
"i have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. if i cannot satisfy the one, i will indulge the other"
There is a certain emotion I feel right now, a feeling. Perhaps more a feeling than an emotion. I'm not sure what it is, but it's probably got something to do with three things that are present at the moment: editing this webpage, looking at another webpage, and the song I'm thinking about.
