"Only" by Nine Inch Nails

I’m becoming less defined as days go by
Fading away
And well you might say
I’m losing focus
Kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself

Sometimes I think I can see right through myself
Sometimes I can see right through myself

Less concerned about fitting into the world
Your world that is
Cause it doesn’t really matter anymore
(no it doesn’t really matter anymore)
No it doesn’t really matter anymore
None of this really matters anymore

Yes I am alone but then again I always was
As far back as I can tell
I think maybe it’s because
Because you were never really real to begin with
I just made you up to hurt myself

[x2]
I just made you up to hurt myself, yeah
And I just made you up to hurt myself

Gives me hope and confidence"

"I haven’t slept for two days
I’ve bathed in nothing but sweat
And I’ve made hallways
scenes for things to regret.
My friends they come.
And the lines they go by"

Rest My Chemistry, Interpol

Tulips Place Third

When tulips age

in a tabled vase

they open their hearts

trusting and wide

spilling petals, pollen

to the floor.

"True I have wept too much! Dawns are heartbreaking;
Cruel all moons and bitter the suns.
Drunk with love’s acrid torpors,
O let my keel burst! Let me go to the sea!"

[from] The Drunken Boat by Arthur Rimbaud

"Run in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies
-
Break the silence
Damn the dark
Damn the light"
