too close to her

But she knows she has curse on her
A curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
Too close to her,

The pins stick farther in.

Tim Burton in The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories, 1997


“…in that drunken place

you would

like to hand your heart to her

and say

touch it

but then

give it back.”

Charles Bukowski, The People Look Like Flowers at Last

Find what you love

“My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ Falsely yours”

― Charles Bukowski

Tempt me…

“The guy was a piece of sin. If he were the devil holding a contract, this would be the moment I might just give in to temptation and sign over my soul.”
