simultaneously glorifying and bastardising the falseness of divinity
You’re the best at the internet
Favourite LC! Lyrics
I wear a ring of your lipstick around the knuckle of my 4th digit it reminds me what our bodies sowed it will do until we are betrothed
Just write another sad one for your mother, or this incestuous obsession with your sister. You long to write the songs someone would listen to, but can you blame them?
Dreams Don’t Become You
Nothing says “I miss you” quite like war poetry you carved in your door with a Stanley knife
My Year In Lists
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, fondness makes the absence longer
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
Drawing tiny little pictures of skeletons to get across the sense of impending doom
Drop It Doe Eyes
She said, “Oh tell me darling, do you think we have a future?” “Well maybe, kind of, pretty sure we’ve two between us”
It’s Never That Easy Though, Is It? (Song For The Other Kurt)
Plunge your hand, rip out my spine, replace it with a UV light so I can be the beacon of hope that you’d always expected
Broken Heartbeats Sound Like Breakbeats
And every sentence that I spoke began and ended in ellipsis
Knee Deep At ATP
Your feelings are buried in scriptures and fictions, it’s all in the words but I’m here for the pictures.
We’ve Got Your Back
Now when I view the cemetery I don’t see headstones, I see rows of engraved milk teeth, hungry, waiting for me
Who Fell Asleep In
She’d a bruise so black they watched it fade through the full spectrum of colours
A Heat Rash In The Shape Of The Show Me State; Or, Letters From Me To Charlotte
There are photos of us holding hands outside of the frame. I was there, but wonder where our fingers were all the same
There Is A Flag. There Is No Wind.
I can’t believe I chose the mountains every time you chose the sea
Code: A Burn Scar In The Shape Of The Sooner State
Kissing carnivores to make it seem like less of a deal
I Just Sighed. I Just Sighed, Just So You Know
You slit their bellies open left the knife inside, they’d ripped off our collars, we had nowhere to hide.
Too Many Flesh Suppers
There was more life in the weeds than in the few hundred seats in rows from transept to chancel to nave. And when their anger had paused, I turned and answered their calls with your just audience, I’m the applause
So I’m watching LotR (standard weekend fare) and I was just thinking about how all the times when there’s supposed to be an encouraging speech they err on the negative —
“Look at my men. Their courage hangs by a thread. If this is to be our end, then I would have them make such an end, as to be worthy of remembrance.” - Theoden, TTT
“Too few have come. We cannot defeat the armies of Mordor. / No. We cannot. But we will meet them in battle nonetheless.” - Gamling/Theoden, RotK
“Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day… a red day… ere the sun rises!” - Theoden, RotK
“I didn’t think it would end this way. / End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path… One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass” - Pippin/Gandalf, RotK
“Is there any hope, Gandalf, for Frodo and Sam? / There never was much hope. Just a fool’s hope.” - Pippin/Gandalf, RotK
“I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*” - Aragorn, RotK
There are more but I haven’t been collecting them. It’s weird how the most encouraging quotes come from the likes of Sam when you’d assume they should come from the leaders (ov apart from “FOR FRODO” ahhhh).
