“I wore you on me at all times
Like I now carry my pen.
Unlike your own opinion my
Belongings must have a function.

To be my subject nursed your thirst.

Was it my fault, or your own, that you forgot
—I do not deal in tender verse.”
Mie Hansson, Where Pain Thrives

“In the blackness of the midnight sleep world, immunized from the harsh glare of daytime reality, the active imagination of the soul dances in the mind of a dream weaver. Safely shrouded in the all-encompassing blanket of darkness supplied by nighttime sleep, our secret wishes speak to us by channeling the collective mythology of the primordial mind. During the wee hours of night, right before first light, we summon our personal muse to tell us in operatic fashion what it means to be human. If we listen carefully, our muse’s heart songs shares with us what it means to experience both the tragedy and comedy of life, and encourages us to unreservedly embrace in a moral manner the banality, brutality, beauty, and splendor of nature that occurs eternally in the cosmic world that swaddles us.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“و كم من الدماء كانت ستُراق؟ أجبني على هذا السؤال! و كمن كان عدد الأرامل اللواتي سيلبسن الثياب السوداء حدادا على أزواجهن،وكم عدد الامهات اللواتي سيلبسن الاسود حدادا على اولادهن الذين ماتوا قبل اوانهم؟

“Мислех си, че човек никога не знае след какви загуби може да оцелее. Никога не си в състояние да предвидиш какво можеш да надживееш. Едва когато катастрофата те връхлита и ти си сред нея, се разкрива дълбочината на вътрешните ти резерви – и нито миг по-рано.”
Алегзандър Чи

C. JoyBell C.
“I think that the process of giving your true love to someone, mainly surrounds the act of opening a door inside that's all locked up. Behind that door lives the small child that is the real you. The small child who hurts too much and feels too much and laughs too loud and always believes... true love involves unlocking the many padlocks on that door, taking her by the hand, and guiding her to the arms of the one you've chosen to love. And I think this is why some people change forever... because they loved someone in this way, but it only hurt too much. The little one was wounded. So this is why you take her back and tell her she's better off staying inside. It is a poetic, lyrical tragedy. Some people die this way, before they ever are dead. Or maybe we don't die; maybe we live on, behind that door.”
C. JoyBell C.
