This week’s blog post orbits around the initial starting spark; a reveal of my chosen phrases, the who and the what and the why. Two week's worth of words that relate to Delta’s immediate process. An overindulgence, really.


"The unreal is more powerful than the real." - Choke

“The unreal is more powerful than the real. “

“Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it.”

“No one is as beautiful as she is in your head. Nothing is as exciting as your fantasy.”

These phrases are excerpts, out of context, from the book I’m currently reading; Choke - Chuck Palahnuik. Chosen for their brutal and frank nature, they reflect the way a dream can become an overwhelming venture. Grass is always greener, etc.

"We just are, and what happens just happens." Fight Club

“We just are, and what happens just happens”.

A less unsettling, yet less hopeful, Palahnuik quote. A fallback thought for those days I’ve fallen behind. Found when revising Fight Club, the first Palahnuik novel I read/fell in love with. 

"Babe, there's something lonesome about you." Hozier

“I will not ask you where you came from; I will not ask and neither should you.”

“I should’ve worshipped her sooner.”

“Babe, there’s something lonesome about you.”

“Babe, there’s something broken about this.”

“All you have is your fire and the place you need to reach.”

“Her fight and fury is fiery but oh she loves.”   

“I’m all but washed, in the tide of her breathing.”

All Hozier’s wonderful lyrics, rediscovered after recently attending a small and beautiful Hozier concert. These particulars sung to my New Romantic. 

"My story isn't sweet and harmonious."

“My story isn’t sweet and harmonious.”

A near-correct amalgamation/modification of Herman Hesse’s words, an author acknowledged in our Devoured Library.

"I don't miss you at all." Amy Holford

“I don’t miss you at all.”

No explanation needed, I’m assuming. Taken from Amy Holford’s beautiful song, I Don’t Miss You. I’ve always taken strength from her lyrics, mostly I Won’t Wait sung for Burberry Acoustic.

"I know he did you wrong, we can make it right." Good As Hell

“I know he did you wrong, we can make it right.”

Good As Hell – Lizzo

No explanation needed.
