    Just random thoughts about my fantasy (one that I've kept with me my entire life) of dropping everything and going out into the world with nothing.

    We've never known life before
    I'll hold you as this illusion melts before our eyes
    The one we cried over
    It was all in our heads

    Strangers in strange cities, being hungry, soup kitchen's, stranger's car (with or without candy), parks, street corners, libraries, death, life, romance, silence, showers in the rain, no clean clothes.

    No idea, no direction, no focus, no plan, no goals, no wishes, no past, no future.​

    Am I running away from or embracing life? Have I ever even really been alive? Is this just a fantasy or the way my life could really be? Is this just a childish dream or something close to free?
    Will I ever really leave the hell that I've created?

    Does anyone else find death as romantic as idea?
    I always associate death with romance for some reason.

    Really beautiful :) I'm guessing that thoughts of death and running away both give you the same sort of means absolute freedom or something?

    I agree that there is somethiing about death which is romantic.
    Its asthough ther is something poetic about someone ending their life, and finally experiencing the freedom they crave.
