I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
she said, “lover, come and hold me, I am terribly afraid.
while you’re shouting at the stars, my scars are not fading away.”
he said, “darling, I was begging heaven make them disappear, but,

Did you hear that Max and Sherri Bemis (from the bands Say Anything, Perma, and Eisley) are naming their daughter Coraline? She's due to be born in February.
I saw it on Twitter, and was thrilled. They are wonderful people (I met them at a Coraline screening, oddly enough), and I love their music. Joy.
Jess, is that you? Jess, I’m pretty sure it’s you and I’m pretty sure you’ve been calling and not saying anything but wanna say something. Hello? You’re not going to talk? Fine, I’ll talk. You didn’t handle things right at all. You could’ve talked to me. You could’ve told me that you were having trouble in school and weren’t going to graduate, and that your dad had been there, but you didn’t. And you ended up not taking me to my prom and not coming to my graduation and leaving again without saying goodbye again, and that’s fine, I get it, but that’s it for me. I’m going to Europe tomorrow and I’m going to Yale and I’m moving on. And I’m not going to pine. I hope you didn’t think I was going to pine, okay? I think… I think I may have loved you, but I just need to let it go. So, that’s it, I guess. Um, I hope you’re good. I want you to be good, and, um, okay, so, goodbye. That word sounds really lame and stupid right now, but there it is. Goodbye.
The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.
