lane changes


your screams
are so off key
like steam vents whistling
no sign of relief

breaths freeze over
faster than all life
collapsing to nature’s
iron grip

i’m leaning in and i’m
heading out
further rest stops
late at night
not a soul
in sight

just you and i
and no matter
if i grate my teeth away
i would be nothing without you
i would give anything
to have you stay


i love concerts so much that i have pre concert depression thinking about the post concert depression i’m going to have 

What people think depression is:


What depression actually is:

The feeling of hopelessness and despair over long periods of times commonly followed by suicidal thoughts. The action of simply getting out of bed becomes a near impossible thing to do physically AND mentally..

It’s not a choice - it’s a chemical imbalance in the brain. So telling someone to fake it till they make it, just get out and do things, socialize, or anything else will not cure depression so just stop and understand what it actually is first. You’re not helping by saying these things. If anything you're making them feel even more worthless.



Are you ever super obsessed with something for a while and then it fades out into you casually liking the thing and then something triggers it and suddenly it’s back to full blown obsession

I must have watched Shrek about fifty times, but only last night did I notice that Lord Faarquad pops a boner when the mirror shows him Fiona.





Christ on a bike!
