Synphonic: a surreal dream usually overly positive and based on happy desires or memories.
And though you say goodnight
I feign my sleep with closed eyes
My mind running, yet wandering
Around the hope I'll still be alive
To see the happy ending I once dreamed of
And dream of them I do again.
Place the Blame
A daughter should not be responsible for her mother.
A child should not be responsible for themselves.
Nor a victim for the crimes that hurt them.
From Buffy: The Vampire Slayer:
"Passion. It lies in all of us... sleeping, waiting. And though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open it's jaws and Howl. Passion is the source of our finest moments: the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But, we would be hollow: empty rooms, shuttered and dank.... Without passion, we'd be truly dead."
From Kate & Leopold:
"It is no more crazy than a dog finding a rainbow. Dogs are colorblind, Gretchen. They don't see color. Just like we don't see time. We can feel it, we can feel it passing, but we can't see it. It's just like a blur. It's like we're riding in a supersonic train and the world is just blowing by, but imagine if we could stop that train, Gretchen? Imagine if we could stop that train, get out, look around, and see time for what it really is? A universe, a world, a thing as unimaginable as color to a dog, and as real, as tangible as that chair you're sitting in. Now if we could see it like that, really look at it, then maybe we could see the flaws as well as the form. And that's it; it's that simple. That's all I discovered. I'm just a... a guy who saw a crack in a chair that no one else could see. ... I'm that dog who saw a rainbow, only none of the other dogs believed me."
