mind y o u r HEART


You knew in five minutes - But I knew in a sentence

I came to find you
I see you, always struggling

If we could sit together a moment and talk forever just to pass the time

How to explain, So pristine the pain
Kindness made the cut so clean

If you don't know me by now
You will never never never know me

I tend to disappear here and there
So concentrate and you’ll feel me everywhere

One of these days you'll be falling for the least of my moves

It cannot wait, I'm yours

Same Old Flame Again, it never ends

Old Flame | Real Life Version | I'll Meet You There | I Still Care For You | If You Don't Know Me By Now | Drop Dead Blues | I'm Yours

But now you've got the gist Of what my letters meant.


Dear xxxxxx,
There is a letter I can't write.
There is a letter you will never get.
It's unnecessary because we both know what it would say.
It has been years but we both want to read it anyways.
I know you want to write it. I know you think about it.
I know you too well. I'll stop saying that when you prove me wrong

+ "You press them to your lips, My pages of concern."

The lines of self-defense.
The wounded forms appear:
The loss, the full extent;
And simple kindness here,
The solitude of strength.

+ Leonard Cohen - lover lover lover/live (1975)

He said, I locked you in this body,
I meant it as a kind of trial.
You can use it for a weapon,
Or to make some woman smile.

+ R.E.M. - E-Bow The Letter

My loss, and here we go again


the nerd silhouette has a wish list

From Playstation Magazine's Holiday Gift Guide `08 (click the image for bigger size).
Out of all the pages in the guide this one made me think of me...If you take out the Star Wars Lego, the exotic cutter and the plush toys (why them instead of the Samurai Sword the silhouette obviously wants as a gift?). Also, in the "Digital Downloads" department, the only game I've bought from PSN is the almost seizure inducing Wipeout HD. What really got me is that I have both of the games featured (Bioshock + Valkyria Chronicles), I've been tempted by many a Marvel Omnibus but never gotten one and I have the audio book for Artie Lange's book ready to put into my nano.
