➳ “It all started with a declaration. A small leap of faith that struck everyone as incomprehensible and wrong. So we hid the papers and continued to work on it in secret. Our little secret.”
➳ “Once, I knew what it was to love another; later did I know what it is to lose. Only now do I know what it is to carry the memories of two alone.”
➳ “…because for dead men walking, the world dies for them before they die for the world.”
➳ “Submerged in a dark sludge, with no means to find my way, ‘til you came and helped me rise out to see.”
