"Love says: I’ve seen the ugly parts of you, and I’m staying."
"I realized that I was holding on to something that didn’t exist anymore. That the person I missed didn’t exist anymore. People change."
"I can’t let you go now. I want to go places with you; obscure little places, just to be able to say: here I came with her.
"When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn’t make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares are still walking. When we hold each other, we feel not safe, but better. ‘It’s all right,’ we whisper. ‘I’m here. I love you.’ And we lie: ‘I’ll never leave you.’ For just a moment or two, the darkness doesn’t seem so bad."
