"To be someone’s best friend requires a minimum investment of time. More than that, though, it takes emotional energy. Caring about someone deeply is exhausting."

"When you provoke extreme emotions from a person, they’re not quite themselves at that point, or perhaps, they’re purely themselves."
"Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it."
"…Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory."
"

I need to stop
being in love
with the ideas of
what could have been.

We could have
slowly inched closer
and held each other
a little tighter.
We could have
laughed a little harder
and fallen in love
some more.

There are so many things
that could have happened,
but did not.
We almost were.
We almost were.
And we almost happened,
cupid almost won.
But he didn’t.
And we didn’t,
either.

We could have
lasted too,
oh darling,
I’m sure we could have.
We were almost there.
