-Mira Gonzalez in Thought Catalog
i love this. “The Sadness We Share.” 2 lovely friends, Steve Roggenbuck and Mira Gonzalez, at the behest of Tao Lin, discussed relationships and other things at Thought Catalog as part of yesterday’s Tao Lin Day.
What is the difference between being an independent person and being a person who is accepting of loneliness?
Thanks, sorry house! I will thoroughly enjoy the book and Mira’s ass.
last night i had several nonspecific thoughts
about distance, or sadness, or impermanence
it was as if all sounds and textures existed independently of me
and independently of human experience in general
it was late and we were on drugs
my body felt weak or depleted
you were was facing away from me
my hand was barely touching your arm
we laid in your bed and mumbled together
consciously allowing ourselves to experience the absence of loneliness
resigned to the knowledge that we will never be able to fully express anything
in the morning your breath was sour and i felt angry at you
i imagined the sound of your voice, in the future
when you hate me more than you ever have
then i felt the comforting abrupt movements
of your hand pushing against my face
i was reminded of a hospital waiting room
ten years ago
when i still had asthma attacks
Anonymous asked: I think you are the love of my life. I would do anything for you. When I think about you I say "damn". My friends ask me to stop talking about you but it seems weird to stop talking about you. I would give up my collection of books, comic books, CDs, tapes, records, DVDs, and 'art' just to see you eat a peach.
Anonymous asked: Look Im not a desirable person because my teeth are really messed up and i act 'emo' and make jokes about ODing everytime I go to parties. And I'm terrified of living. But I want you to have dinner with me. Or I'll make you pasta with nothing on it and you can comment on my appearance in a cold detached manner. And I'll look at you in a knowing manner. I think I could really offer you nothing but annoyance and pain.
