when the gloves come off. by deadbear when the gloves come off. by deadbear
"so far and few these precious days,
when we can leave behind us,

compulsive dissolution,
or broken bones and violence,

on these we waste our other days,
but days like this are timeless,

free of all pretentious things,
which now seem to define us.



i love you little bear.
-mayday"
