I could never be with a girl who don't smoke
Cause I feel so lonely if you don't smoke with me
It's like baby
Just come sit on my lap
While I roll up this mango
We'll take a trip to a tropical island
I'll treat you like an angel
Bend you in all the right angles
And I hope you treat me good
Cause your such a looker
High heels like a hooker
This lemon liqueur got me tippin
This mango got me trippin
Got a boat load of bud trees
Lost somewhere on the island
Everyday sand in my toes
Lookin for my many o's
Baby girl sittin next to me lookin into the abyss
Floatin on an island
Wish this was my land
But I can't buy land
Cause Im lost like this island
She got her makeup running
Trying to fix that shit
I'm like baby just wash it off
That shit don't fly with me
Nice and clean
Smoke that green
Get bear naked
Eat some granola
Float in the ocean and forget about jewels and gold
Cause baby girl you and me were gonna get old
So for now just deal
Your hand is done just fold

Experience is Everything and NothingExperience is Everything and Nothing3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Everything that has happened or will happen was meant to happen;
However nothing was meant to last forever, even if it was intended to.
So live life like you meant to do everything that you did do or intend to do.
And don't worry if you or anyone else doesn't understand why everything happened.
Just be thankful that you lived long enough to experience it all.

And when I sang there were angels. And when I spoke, doors opened.
And when I was loved by all I was most hated. And when I fell I became a god.
There is no such thing as strangeness in the world. There is only that which has been and that which is. Nothing is ugly but perception makes it so.
Tick. Whirr. Hiss.
The mechanics of the body, our substance, operating in the face of countless organic flaws, should not be confined to the pettiness of beauty. In action lies worth. The value of the flesh lies in its persistence and the minute intricacies of its functioning.
What is the difference between these soft hanging lips, and the smooth determination of a heart, the elegance of bone? Why should I love these less than the other?
These are slick, secreted away in the sanctuary of our mass, requiring excavation and delicacy.
Tick. Click. Cling.
There is so much to hate about faces. Faces lie. Skin lies. Muscle, sinew, bone. These things do not lie. They are the most unappreciated gems of cr

Total sleep in the last 3 months:
- 5 hours!
Once again, a well done job!
A little word from the author:
So, it has been almost 3 months since I have given in to one of my favorite hobbies: role playing on messenger. I became enamored of role playing several years ago and developed two of the characters you see here, Faust and Cendre.
During an innocent discussion with Amaltheren, a friend of mine, we started playing a couple of scenarios involving Cendre and Morquendi, her character. Role playing is like smoking. Even if you stop, you always go back to it.
I enjoy role playing a lot because it gives me a little escape from the grayish taste of daily life.
It also enables me to keep a permanent link with my characters, to create new ones and to give them a 'real' life without having to draw a comic.
I like the interactions created when role playing, and when the characters interact well that is all the inspiration I need to take a pen and start drawing non-stop.

In a white hospital bed, pale as the lifeless bones of a decaying skeleton, with my flesh exposed through the backless dress of my hospital gown, I listen to nurses discuss my mental health. I can taste the quiet tap of a pen on paper and their tiny smiles of contempt.
Shame comes in waves. Its not like a scalpel or the cold touch of a surgeons hand. They never tell you that it can eat away at your insides like a virus. (That it eats you alive). Shame is not a symptom of the mentally ill. Its just a side effect.
In my creased hospital dress, I wish for death. The sweetest sleep away from detached, gloved hands and dissociative expressions. The never-ending hostile questions and the silent blame and accusations lying unspoken on dry lips.
You did this. Youre not sick. Youre just a twisted, manipulative lunatic.
Under medication and the slow Novocain drip of sedation, I wish for another disease. I want a tumor in my head something t

A hard CRACK while sitting in
a soft chair. No pain registered.
The absence of it
is like watching explosions in space.
You follow the curve of your skull. You remember
how skulls are formed like tectonic plates.
Your head wants to be a planet,
volcanic, living, in change.
You continue to your left shoulder,
the one with all the problems.
But today, it has nothing to say.
Your rib cage moves
like oceanic waves, expecting a storm
that hasn't come.
You stand up,
you consider your legs,
nothing feels wrong,
But you can break
more than your body.

"La petite poule grise L'tait un petite' poul', une petite poule, grise Qu'allait ponder dans l'glise " I sang in French as I rocked back and forth on my feet, Cherish yawning in my arms.
"Why are you singing to my daughter in French, Mir?" Niall asked, coming in and planting a kiss on my cheek, he had some kind of food in his mouth , but I didn't ask.
"Because she's going to speak French." I said.
"Because you don't speak it."
"Why would you do that to me?" Niall asked, wrapping his arms around my waist and kissing my neck.
"So we can talk about boys without you listening in." I smiled, turning my head to look at him. "See, I'm smart." I said in French.

Can anybody hear me?
Are these messages
Coming through clearly?
Over a year has gone by
Since I felt the ground beneath me.
How much longer must I wait
Till these binding walls release me?
There are so many worlds
Left to be discovered.
My mind is set on new horizons,
But you're holding me back.
If you are listening to this
Than we have reached the other side.
We've chosen the path
That you so readily denied.
It only takes time
Wait it out...Wait
It only takes time
What do you want from me?
I refuse to be the coal
That burns in your machine.
Why do I even try?
When there's so much
Holding me back from the open sky.
Sitting like a stone,
You don't budge at all.
Crying for relief,
I lie in disbelief.
Sitting by the phone
You act like you don't know.
What's it gonna take
Just to make you break?

Pale hooves scuffed on the sun-shriveled ground. All four were connected to black legs that jerked periodically, supporting a new body birthed by the earth and breathed to life by the wind. The skin was black and the body hair was white. A neck that would grow more sleek with muscle given more years was thin now, curved, and supported a delicate head with a straight, small nose. The pair of black delicate sensory organs pulled in the dry air. Coughs came from the dark mouth as the air burned the young throat. Long lashes over small eyes fluttered, trying to grasp the concept of sight.
A song murmured overhead and the filly twitched both small white ears. She looked up and amaranth-pink strands curled in a line down the equine neck from between the ears to the withers. A great bowl of blue greeted her. She turned. There was only the heat beaten ground with parched cracks that opened like so many desperate mouths towards the sky.
What am I? Where am I?, the filly thought. Where

Christmas was here, well it was close. Two weeks away is pretty close isn't it?
Anyway, it was christmas time. I was with my girlfriend on the set of her latest photo shoot. God I was a lucky man, she is beautiful. Stunning blonde hair, incredible, sexy body and a gorgeous face with eyes that I could stare into for the rest of my life. Why was she with a guy like me? I was just a standard guy, nothing special. Brown hair, not very muscular at all, I didn't even have a job. I've been relying on her for money for months.
She was modelling some amazing outfits for the holidays. They showed off her body perfectly.
I was stood around for a good half hour or so when it was time for a break before she got into the next few outfits. We were in her dressing room talking to eachother about whatever. We were sat in there a while when she suddenly tripped over.
