“I have my mother’s mouth and my father’s eyes; on my face they are still together.”

“You are terrifying and strange and beautiful, someone not everyone knows how to love.”

“The ego hurts you like this: you become obsessed with the one person who does not love you. Blind to the rest who do.”

“My alone feels so good, I'll only have you if you're sweeter than my solitude.”

–Warsan Shire
