Smoking a cigarette is like forgetting. When I hit rock bottom, it’s all I have. Light up. Smoke up. Shut the fuck up. It hides the shit. The smoke hides the shit. There’s menthol and vanilla. Some people like them: menthol cigarette, vanilla cigarette, chocolate cigarette, cigarette cigarette. Cigarettes clearly keep me from going crazy; keeps me alive. It keeps me alive until I die.

If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it, too. I want them to be able to do whatever they want around me.
