adventures in dysthymia

Sunday, May 22, 2005


Tannhauser, baby --
that's who I feel like lately,
(hear that Wagner shit
in the background?)
choosing between the sacred
and the profane.

Even eternal Venus
can't fill a mortal lifetime.
I'm empty. I need more;
more than what we are,
more than being
your sometime lover,

your go-to guy,
the friend-with-benefits.
Sometimes, yeah, sometimes,
baby, I think I'd be
better off alone
than stuck here, halfway

between heaven and hell
and not knowing which
I find in you.

actually I'm quite fond of that Wagner 'shit'
