The Ultimate Drug
A week from now, a dream I’ve had since 2015 will be coming true.
I feel a thank you is in order,even though the message won’t actually make it to the desired recipients, I know .
12 years ago, I fell madly in love.
It was a wicked affair because I was already in a relationship with The Rasmus. After hearing Wings of A Butterfly for a couple of times, it grew on me and I found myself wanting more. I was a young baby-bat back then, totally seduced by this newfound fascination. HIM’s lyrics and music somehow resonated with how I was feeling at the time. It made me feel less... lonely. I was high on them, scavenged the internet, metal hammer and religiously stayed in front of the TV every Friday night for Viva La Bam hoping for an appearance.
I obsessed over each and every bloody note that came from this band. My addiction to it helped me get through plenty of downs and was (still is) the soundtrack to my highs - fuck! My boyfriend just proposed to me with Right Here In My Arms playing in the background!! Another epic memory forever stuck in my head each time I play that song
