“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”

I genuinely think 

               c.o.n.f.u.s.i.o.n.
    could perhaps 
          set a momentum 
                to prevent proper
           prosperity   

   ensconced 

           by life lesson 
      after life lesson 
  after life lesson 

    much thought propels 
      me to characters 
  similar to that of billy crystal
     in when harry met sally
          with regards to mentality 
       of constant doom

  harry always read the end 
     of the book first — which 
as someone who is neurotic 
   i completely understand 

       but it\’s a though
    someone could say 
       they only appear 
     to look upon a single 
        brush stroke of a grand 
  and magnificent piece 
    like for example 
 the mona lisa 

   most do not comprehend 
       as one gazes upon a whole 
  image not the individual flourish 
      that riddle each canvas 
          adorned with oil paint 

    to live in a poised fashion
      would certainly induce 
   a not so pleasant anxiety attack 
       there are always layers 
     that should be appreciated 

  as onions are cubed 
      in part to their various scales
          that shed perfect strips 
     formed from the inside out 
 
       as art it first cultivates 
            in the core of who we are 
       proper respect essentially 
          must be shown 

      regardless of the medium  
          at your feet 
              as that will truly allow 
       your obsession to feast 
          on something 
                   other than 
               opium
