“Can't you for once, just this once, stop over thinking, and just…feel?”
Mayumi Cruz, It's Not Just Semantics

“Oblivion is bliss. It makes one feel at peace.
But not quite.
Not quite.
My brain is at peace.
But my heart isn't.
It longs for its other half.
The half that comprises the whole.
The half that matches its beat.
The half that makes it throb.
The half that makes it strong to overcome anything.
Even oblivion.”
Mayumi Cruz, Chroma Hearts

“Stop running and start feeling.”
Mayumi Cruz, It's Not Just Semantics

“When asked, How do you write? I invariably answer, One word at a time.”
Stephen King

“I wrote my first novel because I wanted to read it.”
Toni Morrison

“I think new writers are too worried that it has all been said before. Sure it has, but not by you.”
Asha Dornfest

“How did we come to this? Two tormented souls, two shattered hearts, two people tied and bound in a perpetual circle of gloom. There was no light in sight. Only darkness. Only sorrow.”

Excerpt From: Mayumi Cruz. “CHROMA HEARTS.” iBooks.”
Mayumi Cruz, Chroma Hearts

“I will continue doing it, even if it takes a lifetime. Because I love her. I love her enough to look past the horror of what was done to her and cast my eyes forward, rebuilding our future.”
Mayumi Cruz, Chroma Hearts
