silly Juliet.

" In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be. "

Are you having trouble keeping up?Seeing thisthingthrough?

I want to know who you're running from -- me or you?
You're too confused to open up  ( feel the way I do ) .
I want to know who you're thinking of,

'cause I really have no clue.

when you

Another   game   of   charades. . .
don't you know everybody plays?I don't want to lose to you that way.
Maybe we'll be different this time around? Maybe we'll be different..

I don't know.

Don't want to strangle this,
so I'm holding back for now.


(calm down , don't take it too far--)
I know only time can heal scars, so
I'm ready whenyouare.(whenyouare)
(tied down, don't want any false starts--)
I can do without the time apart , soI'm
READY whenyouare. ( when   y o u   are )
...I'm ready when you are.

-- Trapt

Are you having trouble keeping up?

You know that I will wait.

(i wonder if it's good enough to make you stay?)

You're too confused to open up;
you don't know what to say.
Well, you can tell me if you think it's love.

I won't be far away.

Were mandkind murderous or jealous upon you, my brother, my sister?
I am sorry for you, they are not murderous or jealous upon me,
All have been gentle with me, I keep no account with lamentation,
(What have I to do with lamentation?)

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)

I stop somewhere waiting for you.

(tasting bright sweat and dark pavement)

i collapse with air burning fiery holes into my lungs, street gravel pressing temporary tattoos of dots unto my palms. and you are already standing behind me. barely winded, and nothing but love and understanding on your kind, kind face.

i didn't ask you to run after me.             i whisper.

but i couldn't help it.             you answer.

(and you say exactly what i want you to say)


After all this time,
   I never thought we'd be here--
     never thought we'd be here,
(when my love for you was blind)
but i couldn't make you see it--
       i couldn't make you see

that i loved you more than you'll ever know

(a part of me died when i let you go)

Jimmy Eat World--

THIS is who i am.

( i'm sorry, but )
off how I feel

you KILL me;
you BUILD me up,but just towatchme break--

i know what i should do
but i just can't walk away.

tell me

i NEED answers
         for what all
the    w a i t i n g
i've  done  means

you KILL me;
you've got some nerve but can't face your mistakes

--i know what i should do,
(but iJUSTcan't turn away)

voices to voices,lip to lip

i mean that the blond abscence of any program
except last and always and first to live
makes unimportant what i and you believe;
not for philosophy does this rose give a damn...

E.E. Cummings

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down
