from by Et Tu Brute



This is me four beers in, a sad sorry sack of shit. Sluttering May 4th and it's 11 past 11 and I am wishing that two years felt less like two minutes. Oh, how the calendar weighs heavy as if it hung itself on me.
And I wish I could get this drug test over with, because it feels like I'll never get high again. And I'm living life on shot-clocks as if my twenties didn't have another five years to grow or accomplish anything.
Saving time, sharing shorts, no you can kill it. "Days and days and days and days of sour grapes." I wish I had the type of friends that knew that I would die for them. I wish I weren't as loyal as I am.
I don't believe in anything, but I pretend to have a soul. It makes things much more comfortable.

"I wanna have someone there, and like it's easy to be like 'oh it doesn't matter who's there,' but dude, it matters who's there. Like, you want somebody you trust and actually respect with or without their clothes on... I don't want to be in a flat alone, like with an acoustic guitar. I just, I don't want that. It's impossible to make a proper decision when you're twenty-five years old because you don't know anything."
