“”Sometimes I think I’m from another world
when I’m trynna tell a man just exactly where I stand that
I want a man, when i want a man
and when i don’t want a man
i want a man who understands that
and that’s some hard shit to explain
to a man that’s in love with you
it’s a pitiful thing
until i had to figure
that i don’t wanna play around
but i dont want to settle down

Don’t you ever go needing anybody
I always told people that I had just one rule
and they’d tilt their head and
momentarily think that
I was high maintenance
of some sort.

And they’d laugh

“Life is loneliness, despite all the narcotics, despite the shrill tinsel gaiety of “parties” with no purpose, despite the false grinning faces we all wear. But when you finally find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your whole fucking heart and soul, its like you stop in shock at the words you utter. They’re so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long. Yes, there is such thing as fulfillment and companionship, but the loneliness of the soul in its appalling self-consciousness is horrible and overpowering.
I suppose that why I find enjoyment in people. They-in a sense, keep my life from ever feeling lonely. They keep my life full. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me.”
