Get out of my head

"What are you doing here?," she asked angrily.

"You don’t belong here. You don’t belong anywhere. You don’t deserve to be housed where you are cared for and treated with respect, and you certainly don’t deserve to call this place home. I will not let you stay here, this is no place for someone like you. Someone like you who tortures me every day. Someone like you who gains pleasure in knowing the more time you spend in here the more agony and unhappiness come unto me. Someone like you who could find a new home in a matter of seconds. No, this is no place for someone like you. So please, do me a favor and get the Hell out."

"There is no such thing as happiness. Life bends joy and pain, beauty and ugliness, in such a way that no one may isolate them. No one should want to. Perfect joy, or perfect pain, with no contrasting element to define them, would mean a monotony of consciousness, would mean death."

Tonight I Cannot Fall Asleep

Tonight I cannot fall asleep.

For every time I shut my eyes, your face appears to me, whispering soft and loving words into my ears.

Every time I shut my eyes, the thought of you consumes me and I am unable to focus on any one thing.

Every time I shut my eyes, I dream about you and me, being together and simply being happy.

While every time I shut my eyes, I am reminded of all the good you are I am also reminded of all the bad.

Every time I shut my eyes, I am reminded of all the troubles we have and why we could never be.

Every time I shut my eyes, I am reminded how unhappy I am because of you.

And this is why, every night, I can shut my eyes but cannot fall asleep.
