The Doors - People are strange
People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down
Hovhannes Aivazovsky. Detail from The Ninth Wave, 1850.
I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps “Oh look at that!” Then… whoosh, and I’m gone… and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me. Ever.
I was perfect.
