i'm always trying to get there
i never really get there
to that quiet place where
i accept myself
instead i'm deep inside some high school
locker room no clothing
popping the zits of my self loathing
under fluorescent lights
and the bell sounds
and the lights flash
and there's all these questions milling around
and you're too ashamed to ask

"My secret has been revealed!!!! I'm a closeted Amberholic!!!!! Please help me!!!! Someone!!!"

[Mood: numb                                  ]

[Music: Thursday - Where the circle Ends]

The whiskey's wearing out
And the madness is creeping back in
Your face is coming out
Of the blur in my head

I can see you standing in front of me
Sitting here in that cell
Where they can't see me
Or have they just forgotten about me at all?

I shouldn't look to where
You stand staring at me
But the madness is creeping back in
I can feel it growing
Like an old familiar friend
Coming back from a long journey

I've been waiting for you
Dreading to see your face again
But though I've been trying
To make you lose your way
You're smarter than drunken me thinks

And the madness is creeping back in
And will settle for good
Now that the whiskey has worn out for good
And your hand just reached for mine
To make sure it can't reach out for the bottle

[music: Tori Amos - Mr Zebra]

spring haze
You are Spring Haze. Lost, not knowing what it is
that you are looking for, but knowing it's out
there somewhere. Sweet, wistful, and sad.
Perhaps this has to do with someone your soul
loves. Perhaps not. You are on the edges of
eternal wanting.

Aieeeee... Which Tori Amos song are you? (Or, what is your Angst?)

This is what the wall above my bed looks like right now. I just changed the pics up there and yeah, I have an obsession with Amber Benson, it's really pathetic! lol

[music: Ani DiFranco - Grey]


the sky is grey
the sand is grey
and the ocean is grey

and i feel right at home
in this stunning monochrome
alone in my way

i smoke and i drink
and every time i blink
i have a tiny dream

but as bad as i am
i'm proud of the fact
that i'm worse than i seem

what kind of paradise am i looking for?
i've got everything i want and still i want more
maybe some tiny shiny key
will wash up on the shore

you walk through my walls
like a ghost on tv
you penetrate me

and my little pink heart
is on its little brown raft
floating out to sea

and what can i say
but i'm wired this way
and you're wired to me

and what can i do
but wallow in you
what kind of paradise am i looking for?
i've got everything i want and still i want more
maybe some tiny shiny key
will wash up on the shore

i guess i've only got three
simple things to say:
why me?
why this now?
why this way?
with overtones ringing
and undertows pulling away
under a sky that is grey
on sand that is grey
by an ocean that's grey

what kind of paradise am i looking for?
i've got everything i want
and still i want more
maybe some tiny shiny key
will wash up on the shore

I have no idea if I listen to this song when I feel in this particular mood or if the song puts me in that mood... anyway, this song is always linked for me to a feeling that I cannot really describe. It's not just the words, it's the whole music of it, the sound, the way the words flow with the music; of course the words are important, but it's the whole thing about it.
This song is just a state of mind, a way of being for me... anyway, enough with that.

I got this email from Irena today. She says she's just been busy and holds no hard feelings against me, but she just doesn't know what to say, what could be said.
This all thing feels weird for me and if I'm honest with myself... well, I guess I haven't been honest with myself, and therefore not with her, for quite some time now. I did feel a lot of things at the begining, I did really feel it was special, but then it kinda faded. I didn't wanna admit it and I think I'm just trying to convince myself that there was something special here, that what we had was something huge. It wasn't, and I think we just both wanted to believe that it was. Now that it's over, I think I just have troubles admiting that I fucked up and said things I didn't really mean. It's hard to admit that to myself, but it's worse to let her see it. But what's weird is that I get the feeling that she feels the same. She doesn't say it, of course, but it's like I can read it between the lines. We got miscarried, took what we had for something it wasn't, and we have trouble admitting it.
If we did admit it, we would just hurt each other and I know this is something we don't want. I never wanna hurt her, though I guess I did, because no matter what, she's really a wonderful person; it's just that I don't feel this special thing I feel inside whenever Kathrin comes to my mind...

No one ever said it would be this hard

[mood: sad                    ]
[music: Plastic Mary - Cruel sun
           Tegan & Sara - Heavy  
           Tom McRae - Second law]

Today I said goodbye to Irena.

Well, I had to admit and accept that she wasn't gonna talk to me so I sent her an email. I said that I didn't blame her for not wanting to talk to me (I have no idea if it's just for now, but I assume it's for good) and that I was sorry for what happened, that I never meant or expected things to turn out the way they did; I also said that I hoped that she got the life she deserved and that for what it's worth I still loved her a great deal and would be there whenever she would feel like talking to me or anything.

This is all so weird... It's the first time I feel that way about someone, you know, like you love someone (I can't really say I'm in love, but I really do love her loads and really care about her) and they love you, but you know it's just not working and it's no point being together.
It's just amazing how a lot of the things I feel/felt about her are things that I had never felt before. I don't know, there's just something about her that makes her special. Of course there are other things that... well, that I'm not too comfortable with, but I'll always see her as a very precious and special someone. That's why it hurts and saddens me to see that we got where we are, after all the things that were said. But I guess... well, all these things about Kathrin that woke up in me make me realise that it wouldn't have been fair to go one like that when my heart was somewhere else.  
I can't blame anyone, and I'm not even trying to; I guess it's just the way things are, but I wish we could have found a way to sort things out so that we could at least still be friends...

I guess I miss her, somehow...
It's just another person on the list of people I miss every day...

Thoughts of her...

[mood: nostalgic                                      ]

[music: Tom McRae - Beautiful

             Tom McRae - The boy with the bubblegun]


Dear Kathrin,

I’ll never be able to send this, but I wanna write it here, just to let it all out.

I used to day dream about you a lot, and I still sometimes do, but I’d never actually dreamt about you, not really… only in the past few days you’ve popped into my dreams quite a lot.

I don’t really know how I feel about this… well, yeah, I do: I feel nostalgic.

I think it’s high time I admitted that no matter what happened, no matter how hard I tried to convince myself (and almost succeeded), deep inside, a part of me is still waiting for you to come back and ask me to start it all again, to give us another chance.

It’s never gonna happen, I know this, but I can’t help feeling the way I do. I know you’re happy right now, as much as you can be, and I never wanna interfere with this, because you being happy is the thing I want most in the whole world, but the feeling’s right there in my heart.

I guess it’s just this failing that whatever happened with Irena is, the fact that what I mostly feel like lately is lonely, well, all these things, together with having been in Germany, they made me realise that you’re part of every best memory I ever had, and I don’t really know how to handle this. I just can't help having thoughts of the happy times we shared, of moments of tenderness we had, and how right my life felt when I was with you. I have never found anyone who could make me feel the way you did, and this is so special that I know I'll never feel quite the same again. I used to think this was a good thing, but I have to admit to myself that I miss you more than I ever thought possible to miss someone. I miss you in a way I've never missed anyone; it's a silent and aching feeling... 

If I could speak my heart out to you, without caring about the consequences, what I’d say is this: “Kathrin, I know what happened and what things were like when you decided to end our story and I totally respect and understand that because I would never have wanted you to stay with me when it didn’t make you happy anymore. However, I can’t help being there waiting; and I want you to know that whatever happens, you’ll always have a place to run to, someone to turn to. For what it’s worth, I love you Kathrin, and I always will, some way or another.”

But I can’t say these things, so I’m writing them here, knowing that you won’t read them and it’s probably better that way…

[mood:cold                           ] 
[music: Ani DiFranco - I know this bar]

I am sooooo cold... outside and in... 
I'm not surprised that I started this on a cold grey rainy day; they always tend to get me into a writing mood... It probably also has to do with the fact that I feel lonely and have been feeling so for a while now.
I don't know why I have that sentence in my head because it's not really got anything to do with me being gay or not but I remember reading a Tara/Willow fic in which Tara answered to what it was like to be gay by saying it was lonely. It's something
that stuck inside my head lately, like some songs do and you don't know why, except if you're honest to yourself you always find a reason why a certain song line is stuck in your head... Anyway, nevermind...

It looks like Irena won't talk to me anymore. I realise that things haven't really been the way they should have been between us, that I probably disapointed her, but I thought we could agree to disagree on some things and accept that it meant that being together wasn't the best thing to do, whithout holding grudges.
I have no idea how she feels, what she thinks about us, about me, and I have to admit I miss her; because whatever happened, whatever things are like right now, I can't go back on what I felt and ignore what happened... I just wish she'd talk to me, I guess.

I also wish Chris would talk to me more! lol I know how she is and I won't start overanalysing things and think she doesn't wanna talk to me, but I guess today's a day when I wish she was 'around'... Just like I wish Knocker was around. I know he's having fun and a great time with Katie right now and it's cool, cause he deserves that and it's high time he was happy (... and I hope Katie doesn't fuck up again and hurt him one more time), but I can't help he was around, teasing me about my pathetic crush on Amber and, yeah, just fooling around with me...

But, oh well, I guess it's me and myself today, and it's good that way.
I'd better go get something hot to drink before I freeze.
