Sometimes ... you can cry until there's nothing wet in you. You can scream and curse to where your throat rebels and ruptures. You can pray, all you want, to whatever god you think will listen.

I don't kill people.
Perhaps it's just another inhibition to do away with it. Perhaps not. There's really no way of telling.

It's 4 A.M. and the sky is beautiful up and away from this room and this bed and the oppressive inevitability of sleep. I HATE SLEEP. But sleep always comes (that, or madness). — Jhonen Vasquez
