“Inside all of us is a light, but some beacons are darker than others, and some are so dark they never realize they are a form of light at all.”
Courtney M. Privett, Mayfly Requiem

“The dead are never truly gone. They linger in our minds and hearts and torture us with a malice they were not capable of in life.”
Courtney M. Privett, Shadows of Absolution

“We are meant to love. We are meant to lose. Love is our promise of a bittersweet end, and our desperate, hopeless struggle not to hurt anyone along the way.”
Courtney M. Privett, Mayfly Requiem
