Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be the roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.

Mark Lanegan - One Hundred Days

One day a ship comes in
Its good
When it’s something good…

Poetry is poetry, when a poem is a poem…. right?

Pyramid Song-Radiohead

I jumped in the river and what did I see?
Black-eyed angels swam with me
A moon full of stars and astral cars
All the things I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and futures
And we all went to heaven in a little row boat
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

Unsent letters to Diego


“You did not understand what I am.  I am love.  I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious, I am a painter.  I am simply I am…You are a shit.”

~Frida Kahlo

I feel my own blood thundering inside of me, I feel the horror of falling into abysms. But you and I would always fall together and I would not be afraid… I will find you everywhere. You alone can go wherever I go, into the same mysterious regions. You too know the language of the nerves. You will always know what I am saying even if I do not.
