“I never enjoy anything. I’m always waiting for whatever’s next. I think everyone’s like that…living life in fast forward, never stopping to enjoy the moment, too busy trying to rush through everything, so we can get on with what we’re really supposed to be doing with our lives.”

“In the sea of desks,

There’s talk of games and bags

And long pipes that leak dreams 

With the strike of a match. 

And there’s a loudness to the whispers I hear. 

Whispers shouldn’t be that loud, should they? 

There’s a girl over there 

Who everyone knows 

And men without ears who will

Stand by the door for a price. 

In long hallways, there are angry mobs of dwarves 

And rats 

And one single angel.”


Stuck In Love (2012)

I never enjoy anything. I’m always waiting for whatever’s next. I think everyone’s like that…living life in fast forward, never stopping to enjoy the moment, too busy trying to rush through everything so we can get on with what we’re really supposed to be doing with our lives. I get these flashes of clarity, brilliant clarity, where for a second I stop and I think ‘Wait, this is it. This is my life. I better slow down and enjoy it because one day we’re all gonna end up in the ground, and that’ll be it, we’ll be gone.

“There are two kinds of people in this world: hopeless romantics and realists. A realist just sees that face and packs it in with every other pretty girl they’ve ever seen before. A hopeless romantic becomes convinced that God put them on earth to be with that one person, but, there is no God and life is only as meaningful as you fool yourself into thinking it is.”
