I ranted, I pleaded, I beg him not to go

For sorrow, the only lover I've ever known

Sadness is a blessing

Sadness is a pearl

Sadness is my boyfriend

Oh sadness I'm your girl

Lykke Li, Sadness Is a Blessing

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone

No more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden

No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love

No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world

Florence & The Machine, Blinding

And brotherhood, justice, eternal life? Show me a religion that prepares one for nothingness, for death. That's a church I want to enter. Yours prepares one only for more life, for dreams and illusions and lies. There is a fear of death from man mostly who wouldn't live a day. Who would want this nightmare but for fear of the next. The shadow of the axe hangs over every joy. Every road ends in death, every friendship, every love. Torment, lost, betrayal, pain, suffering, age, indignity, hideous lingering illness... and all of it with a single conclusion. For you and every one and every thing you have ever chosen to care for
