But I’ve never seen a scarlet, or a riot, or the violence of you.

“I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand. Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man? These sensations barely interest me for another day. I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away.”

Joy Division

“The pain I’ve had since you left, is stronger than the love we had.”

“If you leave
When I go
Find me
In the shallows”

Daughter

“You’re this creature, My memory has turned you into. I’m a helpless soul, I’ve painted myself into.
I miss you. Or this version of you I remember when we were together. 
My memory of you was gorgeous, sublime. Now it’s distorted and broken, a destruction by time. 
And I miss you, or the version of you I remember from when we were together.
And I’m going to try and find you. Deep inside my mind. Before… You’re destroyed by time.”

“Feel pure isolation rage inside you. Hold onto it. It may be all you ever feel again.”

“There are push doors, pull doors, automatic doors. There are doors that open but don’t close. And there are trap doors, that you can never come back from.”

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadows and the soul. – P.N.
