“Maybe.. just maybe, the light can reach even the bottom of a dark ocean.”
“As if you can see right through me, into my heart.. Always, out of nowhere, you just show up.”
“Stars only shine when they’re set against the night.”
“Do you think you’ll be able to forget?”
Maybe, I don’t know. I think a lot of things.
You ever start choking on an apple and think to yourself, “Fuck you, you dumb apple. I am not dying right now”, and swallow it?
“It’s not wanting to win that makes you a winner; it’s refusing to fail.”
Bite through the pain and let your confidence breathe again.
“It’s like dancing when the song’s already over.”
Moving without getting any closer.
“Searching the past to find the future. This is all that is there. I need it not.”
“I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless. It’s frightening, turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same.”
“Did you do it?”
“What did it cost?”
“It was gone. Start over again. All the doubling he could hold. The pain was gone. The tears were gone. He would not cry.”
You forgot your training. Remember to count doubles. It will stop.
I’ve been burning my heart out.
“You will know you’re reborn tonight.”
Must be rough but I’ll stay by your side. Even if my body’s beat to the bones.
“I don’t want to go through that ever again.”
So cry no more.
“Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.”
“Brothers, what we do in life.. echoes in eternity.”
“People should know when they are conquered.”
Would you? Would I?
“But you know that I gave all I had and then some after that.”
I still don’t understand.
“I buy your love, but you’re giving me the shortchange.”
Who is the fool here?
“So you can paint me any way you like, I can be the villain if it helps you sleep at night.”
Everyday I relive the same nightmare.
“You were so quick to find all my weakness.”
