i am the girl with
more faith in myths than in
the future.

there are more dead bodies in this world than the living.

and if that doesn't frighten you, then i
don't know what would. i guess you could
say that graves are just the closets in which
we hide our skeletons in.

  {but don't
            forget to
                       throw away
                                     the keys}

there are ghosts all around us.

and i think that maybe,
just maybe,
i'd rather take my chances down in
the underworld with them than up
here where the earth is slowly
dying—

all because of the living.
There are about 7 billion people currently living in the world today.

Think about all the people who have died since humans first appeared.

The ghosts really have us outnumbered, huh?

Have you ever read "The Garden of Proserpine"? If not, you really should.

Death has its flaws, but phantoms are not one of them. Case closed, move on.

Outnumbered, yes. For every living person, there is about nineteen dead people.
Life is very expensive, and by the time you realize you've been ripped off, it's too late.
They say life's a gift, and I say yeah, and there is no receipt, so you can't return it.

I love it. But the dead cannot hurt us more than they did while living.
