Mahler

We come up fifth-floor-front-door fucking. I want you to leave me to me. Silence is a god when silence believes it exists. I consider my bathroom human: love loves me like a parasite. I do not believe in cigarettes without bad endings. I believe in the heart of beginning again before I go to bed. I believe in a heart while I sleep. I wake up looking at the front door.
