"I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no Melancholy."
"My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshiped her sooner
If the Heavens ever did speak
She is the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week
‘We were born sick,’ you heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me ‘worship in the bedroom’
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Take Me To Church, Hozier

standing next to me at the bus stop,
and I become aware

of words I don’t know yet. I feel like
I’ve seen you before,
but in a passing car
or a barely lit window
at dusk. Caught
in a moment of humanity.
I close my eyes and I can see us,
laying on cold ground:
but never feeling more alive.
We watch vultures circle above us,
and then move on,
looking for something better,
Our eyes meet,
and your lips part,
smoke rolling out
like a beckoning finger:
have a taste

This is just a test, test 1, 2, 3,
Baby, I’m missing you.
Tell me are you missing me?
Cause it hasn’t been a long time,
but I already wish you were by my side.
People who have a superiority complex based on their enjoyment of vintage music or books are some of the most annoying people in the world and if I ever hear you ridiculing someone just because they may not enjoy listening to the beatles whilst reading to kill a mockingbird and sipping a cup of hibiscus green tea i will literally come to your house and staple your nipples to your elbows
