My Insides Are Sinking Like Ships
The first obligation is to the heart.
Because that's what you're supposed to do, find someone else to keep you from ripping yourself apart.
Instead, it's a slow descent of incoming calls. It's the nothing that hurts us more than anything.
Out the door, through the hallway. Onto the highway and over the ocean.

A thousand friends are dying and none of them are mine
Even more lovers lost to lust, and lust lost in time
A look of objectivity. A feeling of disdain
We're always lost, always losing. Yet always only left to gain
Author's Notes:
now i'm gonna send this to you.
and kinda hope that you write back
and kinda hope that you dont at the same time
because no matter what
i dont think ill be able to believe anything you say

my insides are sinking like ships




and i'm sorry
i'll always be sorry.

This is my attempt at a decent comment:


Well, first of all, I think the title is pretty bad ass.  Also, I get this.  It's like we're always waiting around for someone to make us happy and it never really happens, so everyone is just sad and shit even when they do finally find the person they're 'in love' with.  At least that's what I get from it.  Wutev though.

You express it so well.

I guess first...we should try to find happiness within ourselves, not within someone else...believe me, this I learned the hard way!

Love the writing Johnny...hope you're feeling better soon.
