  1. Sustain the life you live
    if that life isn’t enough
    then sustain for the life you want

  11. My life was sustained, balanced on something that was shaky and invisible. It’s like we all coasted on glass, not realizing it was shattering beneath us. I could look back and see the real reason life was so messed up now- we all sustained ourselves on things that truly didn’t matter.

    She passed me a mug of coffee. It was like drinking stale black sugar lumps. I could barely keep the stuff down.

    “We’ll have to start running again.”

    She shook her head. “Nuh-uh. I don’t want to.”

  15. “Someday”, I murmur, more to myself than anyone else. But it’s alright. I’m most definitely used to it now.
    “Someday.” It feels self-important in my mouth, and I like the weight of its syllables on my tongue. The words start to flow before I can suppress them, quiet and fast. “Someday, he will come to his senses, and he will realize what a good friend I have been all along. And he will dump his girlfriend and kiss me and tell me that I am all he’s ever wanted.”

    It is wishful thinking, but it sustains me.

  17. Caius didn’t try to sustain friendships. He didn’t need them, so why put effort into them? If people wanted to force themselves into his airspace, he guessed that was their business, but it didn’t mean he had to indulge them. He found that the less interested he acted the sooner people left him alone. And that was good.

    At least, it had been until Delaney.

  19. This is deja vu, the taste of repetition all that sustains me from falling over the edge. I know I have seen this before, heard these sounds, felt these vibrations. Why is it always when the world is darkest, when I am sitting in the backseat of a car, staring out the windows at the flashing, whirring, streetlamps, that I get the feeling I have been running around this wheel for so long I don’t even know which way is up?

  21. I’ve never been able to sustain a good relationship with anyone and I really wish I could understand why. I guess I’m too hard to deal with, but in reality, I just want to be loved by anyone or anything. Any sign of affection always makes me happy, I guess that’s why I get too attached a majority of the time.

  27. I tried to sustain something in my life. But one thing lead to another. Sometimes life doesn’t want us to sustain things… sometimes we just keep going, making new challenges, solving problems that don’t exist. But our lives are still being sustained by the weight of our own hands, by our perception and our dreams.

    What else was she supposed to do? It’s not like she had been given much of an option. Her son depended on her. His sick, tired eyes were burnt into her skull.

    “You know this is illegal, right?”

  38. It was a simple plan for men with vast cash reserves and a network of muppets who owed them favours. Sustain the pressure financially until he rolls over. All they had to do was to keep the law suits rolling, which meant accusing him of anything they could think of. None of it had to be true. You just had to keep going until he ran out of money and couldn’t afford a fight. Then you stick the boot in.
