Addiction is the hallmark of every infatuation-based love story. It all begins when the object of your adoration bestows upon you a heady, hallucinogenic dose of something you never even dared to admit you wanted - an emotional speedball, perhaps, of thunderous love and roiling excitement. Soon you start craving that intense attention, with the hungry obsession of any junkie. When the drug is withheld, you promptly turn sick, crazy and depleted (not to mention resentful of the dealer who encouraged this addiction in the first place but who now refuses to pony up the good stuff anymore - despite the fact that you know he has it hidden somewhere, goddamn it, because he used to give it to you for free).

“The following views expressed do not necessarily
reflect those of the prevailing order, who
prostrate to their naked kings, tailor the seams
of funeral shrouds on foreign shores, but shed no
tears for the dead of the endless list of informal
wars – the justification for will be spelled out
coming soon to a screen near you. I’m feeling less
hopeful and so much less human as my days are
reduced to little more than settling for revenge
and wondering whatever happened to the kid that
pledged “first do no harm”? Chalk it up to an
overdeveloped sense of unbridled vengeance.
Somebody fed me too much New Hope for breakfast,
cuz as the empire preemptively strikes back
(again) and the voice of Luke’s father baritones
this is CNN I recall Arab kids slaughtered reduced
to sand-niggers and rag-heads. And now I’m
expected to mourn dead Americans? The
executioner’s willing citizens? I’m so sorry and
I’m trying to think it through, but when the
chickens came home to roost and hand-delivered
matching funeral urns to the bully that never
learns I could’ve swore I heard a chorus rise and
fall wishing them so many more unhappy returns.
But in every war waged, only kings emerged


Its this stupid withheld number that calls me constantly. I wish I could freaking block it you have no idea. I’m going crazy. I don’t want to turn my phone off in case someone calls me and their having an emergency and they need me to help them. Chances of that are slim but it could happen. Also sometimes work or someone from work will call me at like 7 or 8 or some other time when im asleep asking me to come to work and i like to pick up as many shifts as I can.
