I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

And I was a fool. I was a fool to think that even for the slightest second, that someone as magnificent as you would actually fall in love with me. To think that someone who holds the universe within their eyes would actually need someone who can barely grasp the moon and the stars. You were my home, darling. You were my world. And now I am homeless, and I’m trying to learn how to create my own world. But I am homeless, and I am homesick.

I love the fact that twenty one pilots is gaining popularity rn and i’m so proud of them but i’m afraid that some shitty fans will slowly come one by one, this might be good since the clique is getting bigger but i don’t want josh and tyler to get mobbed every time they go out, i don’t want people to spam them on twitter asking for a follow back, i don’t want people to only like tyler bc josh ‘is just the drummer’, i don’t want people to ship joshler so hard that they might ruin their friendship. I couldn’t be more proud of them but i’m afraid that this will happen.

I could build a future between your thighs
then look into your eyes trying to find
my own private history channel
with a life long documentary
on whether or not this was meant to be
and I don’t want to turn any of this into poetry
you’re so beautiful
flowers turn their heads to smell you.”

and when I’m all alone
I’m riffling through the pockets
in the back of my mind
trying to find spare excuses
so I can call you on the phone

and it’s strange
the way I need a reason
just to call you up and say
that I thought about you today
