"I’ve always been a big fan of romance, and I think this story kind of captured the idea of meeting somebody and then an unexpected, unintentional night, unfolding in a really pure manner." (x)
"I blew all my covers, I gotta go figure out a new one."
“That might take a while.”
“I’m counting on it.”
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say you’ve never been in love.
#peace or freedom#that was the deal#and you knew that you chose pain and regret and the eternal fight#but you thought if you took it all#if you made all the sacrifices#maybe he could be safe#maybe he could find peace#and you would burn to let him rake his autumn leaves#to let him bury his boots in the smell of grass instead of blood and screams#if you could give away anymore#to keep him whole and sound#there would be nothing left of you#and you would rest gladly (via yellow-turtle)
