'Got no friends, got no lover
Got no wife, got no brother
But I’m doing the best that I can
To say, to see, I fail to be
Got no dog, got no socks
Got no drugs, got coffee without a mug
It gets me so up tight
To be, I hide, why can’t you see
Got no giro, got no gun
Got no car, got no fun
And soon I will be dead, and if I’m not
Then please, oh please, stab me in the back
Got no highs, got no sense
Only lows and self-confidence
And everybody’s on the run ‘
For what’s the use, to get it on with me’
- Albert Camus, Notebooks 1951-1959 (via stainedpoems)

'Oh god, I'm so lost
And I’m here in darkness
And I want to see the light of love
I’m looking for meaning in my life’
Christiane F. photographed by Ilse Ruppert in her room in Hamburg (1983).
Christiane F., a onetime heroin-addicted teen prostitute, a junkie from the age of 12, was put in the spotlight in her early teens during the late `70s, after a series of interviews about her life and West Berlin`s drug scene, which led in a top-selling book and a film (”Christiane F. – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo”) based on her memoirs.
Her intriguing story, as well as her great looks instantly turned her into a media darling and a kind of controversial heroin-chic celebrity.
Along Alexander Hacke, her boyfriend at the time and member of the German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, they recorded two albums and also appeared in a film.

'Lean out your window, golden hair
I heard you singing in the midnight air
my book is closed, I read no more
watching the fire dance, on the floor
I’ve left my book, I’ve left my room’
