Wishes are sometimes just stories that have nowhere to go.
In the distance,far over there, only the eyes can travel when the body is weary.
Sleeping is forgetting and forgetting is peace.
I do not want to be like a small animal bitten by a snake, going stiff with that poison. I want to bite back.
That is how it is with lies. If you can have enough people believe your lies, before you know it, even the one you have lied against will be confused. The lie will make itself at home and the truth will be knocking outside its own door.
