“I cut my hands up every time I touch you.” Tori Amos. Self explanatory, but I have dreams sometimes about my hands bleeding so it touches me uniquely.
Ever loved a quote that was misunderstood by you and you liked it better the way you misunderstood it? Chevelle has a song called Safewaters (I really enjoy that whole Vena Sera album) about wishing to devolve into a form you used to be and I always heard the line “You mark the place where I exist.” I don’t like this idea that I voluntarily allow other people to mark the place where I exist because I choose to exist in a dark and drunken place when other people create feelings in me that I can’t own. Now, in sobriety, I mark the place where I exist. Other people don’t have this power over me. I had given it to them but now I took it back. The line actually says “You mock the place where I exist”.
