1. At first you seemed just like my dream of a fine and better life.
    Much more than I could ask for in a lover or a wife.
    Though I work with my body and my work makes my hands rough,
    there are gentle things inside me that are anything but tough.
    There are lessons you could teach me, things I do not know,
    things I’ve never done, girl, and places we could go,
    but you only wear your tailored suits for me to rip and tear.
    Oh, can’t I hold you quietly and smell your perfumed hair?

    I saw you as the answer that I never dared to dream,
    I saw you as a window into a world I’d never seen,
    I saw you as a vision come to raise me from the mud,
    but you came to use my sweat to cool the fever in your blood.

    I’m not Marlon Brando with his motorcycle bike,
    and when you call me your animal it’s a name I do not like.
    Oh please, do not tear my back, yes of course I bleed.
    The violence you search for is not what I need.
    Your silken skin is armor that begs for brutal hands,
    but why can’t I be gentle and tell you of my plans?
    I know now that you’re using me, not I just using you,
    and you’re not so scared of losing me as I of losing you.

    At first you seemed just like my dream of a fine and better life,
    much more than I could ask for in a lover or a wife.
    Though I work with my body and my work makes my hands rough,
    there are gentle things inside me that are anything but tough.

    I saw you as the answer that I never dared to dream,
    I saw you as a window into a world I’d never seen,
    I saw you as a vision come to raise me from the mud,
    but you came to use my sweat to cool the fever in your blood.

    My grandfather was a painter. He died at age eighty-eight, he illustrated Robert Frost’s first two books of poetry and he was looking at me and he said, ‘Harry, there are two kinds of tired: there’s good-tired, and there’s bad-tired.’ He said, ‘Ironically enough, bad-tired can be a day that you won. But you won other people’s battles, you lived other people’s days, other peoples agendas, other people’s dreams and when it was all over there was very little "you" in there, and when you hit the hay at night, somehow you toss and turn—you don’t settle easy.’ He said, ‘Good-tired, ironically enough, can be a day that you lost. But you don’t have to tell yourself, ‘cause you knew you fought your battles, you chased your dreams, you lived your days, and when you hit the hay at night, you settle easy—you sleep the sleep of the just, and you can say "take me away."’ He said, ‘Harry, all my life I’ve painted. God, I would’ve loved to be more successful, but I painted and I painted, and I am good-tired and they can take me away.’

    Anonymous asked: Do you think it's possible to create a breathlyzer that you can install in your car and to unlock the car you would have to breathe into it and if you're over the legal limit the car stays locked, restricting you from going anywhere? Just a random idea I had to help curb drunk driving. I dont know anything about engineering, cars, or breathlyzers.

    edwardspoonhands:

    This is so possible that it’s an actual thing for people who have multiple DUIs. They have them mandated by judges. 

    SC just passed a law about this.

    have you ever stopped liking somebody that you liked a lot and suddenly notice that they are a shitty person and realize how blinded you were by how much you liked them
