#drowning

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND YOU WOULDN'T TAKE MY HAND I WATCHED YOU FALL INTO THE OCEAN BELOW

"On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping, White Ophelia floats like a great lily; Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils... " ("Ophelia" by Rimbaud)

"It is so much simpler to bury reality than it is to dispose of dreams" -Don DeLillo
