Over The Past Years I have Become Increasingly Obsessed
By The Fear That Surrounds Growing Older Alone.
However, My Constant Instability, Combined With Intuitive
Intellect, Have Shown Me That To Be Utterly Knowledgeable.
- You Have To Experience Fear -
- And Nourish it -
Where I would Usually Indulge Myself in Repulsing Even The
Slightest Idea of being in Isolation, Maybe it's Become Necessity.
Hell, Maybe I'll Kill Myself Just To See if I've Got The
Necessary Testicular Fortitude To Embrace The Everblack
- There's So Much New Misery Around -
-Mine is Becoming Obsolete -
Nothing Hurts More Than a Summer Spent Fitting Sanity
Back Together Like a Child Attempting a 10,000 Piece Jigsaw.
However it's refreshing to be able to Feel to such a depth
That the eyes become Wet, Narrowed and Bloodshot.
- The Realisation That Pride and Masculinity -
- Is Just Another Product of Society -
Hopelessly Built Upon Thousands of Years of Irrelevant
Hierarchies, Throwing us Back into a Feudal Cage.
We are The Omnipotence. We, The Human. Not Some
Dreamt Up Creator Who Disguises Fear as Faith.
- Maybe This is Hell -
- And We're All Burning Together -
