I want to feel wanted and cherished and safe.
I want to find someone who won't trade me for another.
I want to find love that is visceral and life-sustaining.
"What if it's not what you see, but how you see it? What if the magic is in your perspective?" He gestures to the plateau that spreads in front of us. "What if real magic is about having the right outlook? The right view on life?"
I can’t look into his worried eyes for another second, so I stare at the links of his chain. I want to wrap my fingers around it and pull his mouth down to mine. I want to feel his lips. His tongue. His body.
It makes no sense. He broke my heart and I still want him so much. How is that possible?
She is everything I’m not.
And Perry chose her.
I actually feel like trying to be nice.
Her arm was shot, apparently.
It’s becoming infected, apparently.
I should feel bad for her, I suppose.
When everyone you know is on the verge of drowning, you don’t stop to tell the person next to you that you don’t like swimming.
You just don’t.
“People who try to be nice are false. They’re liars. You should never force your behaviour to be a certain way. You should just be. Maybe it’s not going to be nice, but at least it’ll be honest.”
“It’s strange how you can know something – know the pointy, sharp truth – but still want to bend and blunt the edges so it fits better in your mind.”
