No, this is not from a novel. I'm currently redrafting, Ada, my first novel.

“Missing you,
I missed a part of me
I shared with you
that’s now gone.

Missing you,
when really,
it was the way you made me feel
and the things you made us do.

Missing you
I shouldn’t be.
But I can’t help missing
who I was with you.

Missing you,
I missed
and missed so much of the world
and wasn’t even missed in return.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Some people are in such utter darkness that they will burn you just to see a light. Try not to take it personally.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Come, friends.
Come with your grief.
Come with your loss.
Carry all the pieces of your heart
and come sit with us.
Bring your disappointments
and your failures.
Bring your betrayals
and your masks.
We welcome you no matter
where you come from
and what you bring.
Come and join us
at the intersection of
acceptance and forgiveness
where you will find our
house of love.
Bring your empty cups
and we will have a feast.”
Kamand Kojouri

“The reason as to why we are attracted to our opposites is because they are our salvation from the burden of being ourselves.”
Kamand Kojouri

“You have no choice. You must leave your ego on the doorstep before you enter love.”
