“As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a god. I don’t think there is a god, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a god. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different god, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.”—Ricky Gervais: “Why I’m an Atheist”.

Struggling to remember how I felt at the time. An evolution of understanding that hasn’t progressed very far. Sickening feeling that I should have seen it coming. That I did, but didn’t want to see it coming. Does that mean I could have done more? I think your mind was made up. Another bystander. The movie you were playing, the songs in your head. This was no reunion. No stars were aligned that day. In a dream I saw you. You said you were all alone. Sharp these words; they stayed with me. In the end, I know they’re true.
Is the first wander, the gauze gaze. Sometimes the best secrets are the worst kept. You’re the only one? Prove it. Prove it. I see it twisting my feet waiting for the first. We should laugh so its not obvious. You held my hand too tight for too long
“I wasn’t a misanthrope and I wasn’t a misogynist but I liked being alone. It felt good to sit alone in a small space and smoke and drink. I had always been good company for myself.”—Charles Bukowski (via fuckyeahbukowski)
“I want to meet a woman that will make me stop and listen to what she has to say. I want a woman who will make my jaw drop in awe. A woman that has little time for me. One who does not throw herself at me. One who respects herself who has a sense of herself. Where is she?”—Henry Rollins (via caitbearpig)
