Undercurrents by Michael Fragstein
For Women Who Are Difficult to Love
You are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

Stuck by Stacie Orrico
One of these songs that always resound from the depths of my adolescence. I haven’t heard this in maybe a decade until today and, wonder of wonders, I still like it.
Now that I think about it, I think I like it so much because it — in its own childish, helpless way — describes the relentless pattern of thought of addiction.
Opening Credits of True Blood
Been re-watching the entire thing since I have nothing better to do and would like to remember the entire series before beginning to watch the new season. I’m posting the opening credits because they always struck me as one of the best, most-fitting and most-haunting credits of any T.V. show bettered only by, perhaps, American Horror Story.
