you see the world a different way.
Maybe love just helps you say
the things that madness can't convey

Juliet: I'm a grown woman.
Sassy Gay Friend: I think you're fourteen, and you're an idiot. You took a roofie from a priest. Look at your life, look at your choices. Have you even slept with this guy?

Sometimes you make me want to build a model
of the Eiffel Tower out of Belgian waffles

Then I stood outside his bedroom window
Standing over him, he begged me not to do
But I knew, had to do

I am nothing,
You are wind and devil and God,
Take my blood and my body
For your love.

Let me drink poison,
Tell me to tear my heart in two,
If that's what you want me to do...

Was simply that I went along with him

“It’s for love, in the end. Pettiest of all pursuits. Arrogance, greed, even revenge… they’re nobler, trust me. I’ve walked all those roads. But love? It twists all the other things. Makes you misstep, makes you irrational, makes you impatient, above all. We couldn’t have gone down there without getting revenge, without falling to our greed and arrogance. So I was willing to wait. To sit back and put it off, tell myself we didn’t have the firepower, didn’t have the numbers we needed to take on the group at the stairwell. Wait until it was too late.”
Satyrical, Worm

Lovers and madmen have such seething brains,
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.
The lunatic, the lover, and the poet
Are of imagination all compact.

Walk on through a red parade and refuse to make amends
It cuts deep through our ground and makes us forget all common sense
Don't speak as I try to leave 'cause we both know what we'll choose
If you pull then I'll push too deep and I'll fall right back to you

'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why

If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
Zedd, "Clarity"
