"when i slit my wrists
i'll think of you
when i cry myself to sleep
i'll think of you
when i die
i'll think of you
when you see a sheep
alone in the field
think of me
when you see a child
beaten by their parents
think of me
when you see that sheep
die alone in pain
think of how you neglected me
how you forsaked me
how you forgot me
and let me die
never forget me "


Okay.
Can I just say that I had the shit beat out of me with a leather belt or hands or whatever was handy at least twice a week everyday of my life til about age 14 and never in a million fucking years would I or have I written ANYTHING like that.


I just want to make it clear that you can have horrible things happen to you without having to become a 'horrible teen poet'.

>you got here through Alex's journal, didn't you?

guilty as charged.

>Your name has 'tit' in it.

someone pointed this out on irc about 5 seconds before i got the email telling me of your response... it'll actually a reference to greek mythology. not a corruption of 'tithouse' as some have unkindly suggested ;-)

I see 'tit' I think titmouse.


I also tend to think of madonna.. but that's because no one else so perfectly embodies someone who's boobies should be called 'tits'

Maybe shirley manson.

A titmouse is a little bird



And a Shirley Manson is a flat chested lil twerp who sings with Garbage and has recently decided to be the pop culture poster girl for angrogyny (mainly because she's built like a 10 year old boy) . Despite knowing David Bowie did it 20 years ago.



Not the most convincing of photos.. but well.. look around LJ. She's probably one of the most oft used photos for the LJ icons.

Every angsty chick has decided that they wanna be shirley.

the titmouse looks kinda sweet :-)
shirley doesn't look very angsty, or androgenous for that matter. quite like some of her songs too (i rarely take the trouble to find out about the people who's music i listen to)... i'll probably be shot for saying that around here ;-)

The titmouse looks like a little bird... 'sweetness' is all relative.

And nah, she doesn't look particularly angsty there... but when you see her with the big boots, little skirts and the racoon eyes trying to sell pseudo-goff as pop... well...
it's angsty.

I pretty much revile her music
heh.
but you won't be shot.
