"I’m tired, can’t think of anything and want only to lay my face in your lap, feel your hand on my head and remain like that through all eternity."
"Do you like me?”
Silence bounced, fell off his tongue
and sat between us
and clogged my throat.
It slaughtered my trust.
It tore cigarettes out of my mouth.
We exchanged blind words,"
and I did not cry,
I did not beg,
but blackness filled my ears,
blackness lunged in my heart,
and something that had been good,
a sort of kindly oxygen,
turned into a gas oven.
"You can live somewhere your entire life and never truly feel at home."
"All the hardest, coldest people you meet were once as soft as water. And that’s the tragedy of living."
"Soda becomes vodka. Bikes become cars. Kisses turn to sex. Remember when dad’s shoulders were the highest place on earth and mum was your hero? Race issues were about who ran the fastest and war was only a card game. The most pain you felt was when you skinned your knees and goodbyes only meant until tomorrow. And we couldn’t wait to grow up."
