Mysterious Skin

Mysterious Skin ★★★★★

I wished with all my heart that we could just leave this world behind, rise like two angels in the night and magically....disappear

My fucking heart dude my fucking heart. How does one even begin to digest this, it's terrifying, solemn yet is impassioned with a sense of emotionality and humanity all the way through. We can try to forget, punish ourselves for past actions but we can't ever escape from them. The best thing you can do is try to pick up the pieces, perhaps console and confide in one another. Maybe then one day we can rise out of the ashes and work towards getting our lives back. No one has the right to steal our livelihoods, no one should exercise their burden onto us, we have the right to love. We shouldn't have to live in a world where fear, hate and confusion is the normality, no one should laugh as blood streams from our faces. Could we dare to indict the past? Are we able to do the impossible? Can we enrich our souls? Yes, yes we fucking can and I don't ever wanna live in a world where the answer is no.
