“I am learning how to be angry and sad and lonely and joyful and excited and afraid and happy.”

“It doesn't hurt. Nothing hurts except the small smiles and blushes that flash across the room like tiny sparrows.”

“This is wonderful, wonderful! Be the bird. You are the bird. Sacrifice yourself to abandoned family values.”

“The one good thing about being kind of shy is that nobody bugs you when you want to be left alone.”

“I stuff my mouth with old fabric and scream until there are no sounds left under my skin.”

“Melancholy held me hostage, and the bees built a hive of sadness in my soul.”
