    It's complicated. I was young,

    open-minded, curious, alive. I figured out I was a therian. I kind of got to know myself more, I changed. I turned into this dark, sadistic, self loathing thing because I didn't know how to feel about myself. Also, everything that's happening in the world. War, starvation...

    Sharing A Life With Somone Is Far Different Than Them Completing Yours...

    I guess I changed when the realization that a single individual can't complete another person, finally kicked in. They can only make them better, improve them, or in the words of the lyrical "genius" that is Beyonce: upgrade them. I guess that's what they had in mind when they...

    Mirror on the wall. Tell me what you see.

    Can't even recognize me? Can't blame me. Dazzling smiles turned to sour frowns. Bright eyes turned to dark stones. Can't blame me. This is what happens to good girls you see. Busy pencil in my hand turned to burning cigarette. Can't blame me. That's what happens when you play a...
