To Live & Love in L.A.

musings of miner for a heart of gold.


"Look at me- I’m considerate and sweet. I am a caring, kind, loving woman.
And you-
You are the most self-absorbed, irresponsible, immature, thoughtless, man I’ve ever known.
But I love you.
What the hell is so wrong with you that you won’t just LET me??"

"I went to see a doctor once, and they recommended I take something for anxiety and depression. I was put on something that was similar to Prozac for a little bit. I took maybe six or seven pills and got fed up with it [laughs], so I just stopped taking them. That stuff’s not for me. There are probably things in my life that I need to figure out, and I’m not the type of person that figures them out by talking to someone I don’t know or taking prescribed pills. As long as it’s not prescribed to me, though, I’ll take it."

"she talks with a broken heart -
her voice lutes brokenly like a heart lost, musically too, like in a lost grove, it’s almost too much to bear sometimes…"

- Kerouac (via ariannachicana)

"there are worse things than
being alone
but it often takes decades
to realize this
and most often
when you do
it’s too late
and there’s nothing worse
too late."

- bukowski
