This only silence knows...
How paradoxical we are...
we...
the hollow...as I lay on my bed...
next to on one...
while others around the world...
lay next to someone...

But that's not what differentiates us...
cause right now, me and them...
we are all alone...
as they turn their backs to their women...
Instead of holding them tight...
we are one and the same...
we...
the vacant...

No...
the difference is when you are here...
next to me...

Yes...
when you are here...




...I sleep next to everything.

------------------------------------
Rain...

The rain is what gave me life...
every drop is a cell that completes me...
a drop was my first, my only, my last breath...
a river my blood...
an ocean my masterpiece...
-------------------------------------
Words we hear...
nothing more than a habit to our ears...
the good mornings and goodbyes between lovers...
not knowing they are actual strangers...
the conversations and rhetorical arguments amongst strangers...
not knowing they are lovers...

An infusion to the mind,
or to the heart...

A chemotherapy for loneliness...
---------------------------------------------
Honesty is a scalpel...
that is my tool..
and I use it methodically, with precision...
my steady hand and sterilized heart...
would be envied by any surgeon...

Patient and calculative...
I made a weapon...
out of my own imperfections...

I saw myself and all the things I've done...
what I've done so far...
so many things I'm counting...

What have I done so far...
that hasn't led to nothing?
----------------------------------------
In this frantic world we live in...
Where death's speed is a thousand lives per second...
I saw...
your face...

...and everything stopped.



Oh my God, this is so good! These parts here are from a free sample of the first chapter and I'm craving mooore! And the paintings are ... Woah, you could just stare at them all day, they're so enthralling. The words.. Such brutal honesty..
