When it was blood, sweat and tears
When you leave all the pain and fear
Not gonna watch, just close the box
And get us in the ground

Epitaph - Two Cow Garage

“Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever. It’s like the tide going out, revealing whatever’s been thrown away and sunk: broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones. This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes, not knowing the future. The ruin you’ve made.”
― Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye
