    "Why live a life, that's painted with pity and sadness and strife?
    Why live a dream, that's tainted with trouble, and less than it seems.
    Why bother bothering?
    Just for a poem and another sad song to sing.
    Why live a lie?
    Why live a lie?" ~Emilie Autumn.

    I haven't visited this thread in months...

    Just saw the above little poem.. Wow.. I'd totally relate to that mood some months ago and sometimes during certain instances..

    .. Makes me think of one of my favorite poets both full of realism, wit and heart, Dorothy Parker, and of one of her many written testimonies of humble greatness (if that's even possible):


    "A Dream Lies Dead"

    A dream lies dead here. May you softly go
    Before this place, and turn away your eyes,
    Nor seek to know the look of that which dies
    Importuning Life for life. Walk not in woe,
    But, for a little, let your step be slow.
    And, of your mercy, be not sweetly wise
    With words of hope and Spring and tenderer skies.
    A dream lies dead; and this all mourners know:

    Whenever one drifted petal leaves the tree-
    Though white of bloom as it had been before
    And proudly waitful of fecundity-
    One little loveliness can be no more;
    And so must Beauty bow her imperfect head
    Because a dream has joined the wistful dead!"

    My faith in this world is a bottle of nothing. Still I fly, still I fall. Mad girl, can you believe what they've done to you? Wouldn't they stop, when you asked them to leave you alone.
    In all your fairy tales, how did the Prince say he loved you? ♥
