Speak to a loved one as if for the first time and you may discover that you are meeting them for the first time.
I wish to fall in love so that I may take a vacation from seeing.
Distance is often the closest thing.
It is frightening to be in the company of unhappy people who, through sheer unawareness, believe they are happy. They will poke you with the thorn and insist they handed you the bud.
Better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
You are a beating heart, a falling tear, a pulsing vein and a joyful shout. Do not quiet yourself or wither away for our comfort. Let us confront our fragility so that we may feel the joy of loving you for what you are.
Everyone is fragile–especially those who seem impenetrable.
