The next time you walk into a room full of people, I want you to see how they talk and interact and exchange and tell stories and make jokes. Simply watch, listen, soak it in.

Soon you’ll see there’s a hidden anxiety underneath all their language, a deeper sort of quest for each person to validate their individual existence. You’ll see this web of tug-of-war where everyone is pulling, clawing, scratching, grasping for this weight.

It’s like there’s a secret limited stash of golden currency in the air, and everyone’s fighting for it by telling the better story, bragging about their bank account, trying to be the funny guy, showing off their intelligence, dropping famous names, wearing a name, holding up false bravado, pretending to be a mystery, masking their voice in tight controlled expressions of eloquence.

You know what this is: insecurity. Everyone’s fighting for glory to cover the emptiness, that vacuum fracture. And even when they get the glory from that room, it will never be enough: because we weren’t made for the temporary glory of this earth. Our true glory is beyond the room, outside one another, from on high.

Your breath was smoke in my lungs.
Your kiss seeped venom into my veins.
Your touch poisoned my soul.
And your words turned my blood to flames.
I became addicted all too soon
And you left
Just as quickly.

Our business is unfinished,
Like this open circuit running red.
Because as much as I hate to admit it,
You’re still stuck inside my head.
And I’m addicted.

The blade bites like your venom.
I search slit after slit,
Spilling all of me
To find a drop of you.

It was never easy to quit. (via raumfahrer-rolf)
