The Weapons an author has at her disposal are flawed. There are words that feel shapeless and overused. Love, for example. I could write the word love a thousand times and it would mean a thousand different things to different readers.
What is the point of trying to put down on paper emotions that are too complex, too huge, too overwhelming to be confined by an alphabet?
Love isn't the only word that fails.
Hate does, too.
And hope. Oh, yes, hope.
So you see, this is why I never told my story.
If you lived through it, you already know there are no words that will ever come close to describing it.
And if you didn't, you will never understand.
Gosh, this book.. THIS BOOK! It was the ruination of me in a thousand, soul-shattering ways. It made me feel things as a reader that I didn't know I was even capable of feeling. This is one of those books that seeps into your bones and slowly settles itself into your soul; leaving a permanent imprint upon your heart.
