Love sucks if you’re the Goblin King. As if we haven’t been in the same place. Maybe that’s why I love this scene even more as years go on. So here it is, the final scene between The Goblin King and Sarah in Labyrinth.
Jareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous up ‘til now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that’s generous?
Jareth: Everything! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn’t that generous?
Sarah: Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City. For my will is as strong as yours, and my king…
Jareth: Stop! Wait. Look Sarah. Look what I’m offering you. Your dreams.
Sarah: And my kingdom as great.
Jareth: I ask for so little. Just let me rule you and you can have everything that you want.
Sarah: Kingdom as great. Damn! I can never remember that line.
Jareth: Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave.
Sarah: You have no power over me.
Sunday is such a slow day. If you want to do something, you are forced to do nothing.
Drive till it is Monday. The roads filled with few cars. Just speed along looking at the death around you left brown and bare. There is a smell of snow with warm air under the cold breeze. The sound of scurry could be an animal moving the lifeless leaves looking for a green of food or just the wind tricking you. You could be the only life left in this bitter air. Trees have cut off leaves of nutrient and confiscated for themselves. You are cut off from people. You put behind you people and people forget about you.
I think I finally came up with a possible tattoo idea. I am a happy, smiley person for the most part. I do have a slight problem of being to hard on myself and it is in no particular area. If I make a mistake, I feel I’m not where I should be, I’m late for a very important appointment, or someone looks at me the wrong way. I guess most can say it is the way of a Virgo but I know it is my way. It’s hard to change. It isn’t until I’m not in the moment of beating myself up that I look at myself and laugh or just shake my head at my ridiculousness.
This tattoo could be something to look at in those moments. Calm me, remind me, just bring me back to reality, and point out my craziness. Are you ready?
“Always look on the bright side of life.”
Don’t know where it would go but if you are reading this and you know me you will know I am most likely never getting a tattoo but it’s a nice fantasy I play out and now I’m one step closer.
