We got ourselves here and it’s up to us to get ourselves out of it. We get to decide if we want to stand or run, if we want to fight or shrug, go where the river takes us or swim upstream.
“I can’t explain you. I can’t hide from you. I can’t forget you. I can’t excuse you. I can’t forgive you. I ache for you, but I don’t miss you. I reach for you, but I know it’s better that you’re out of my grasp. I’ll never have you, but that’s why I’ll never leave you. This is who we are. This is what we do to each other.”
“Do not cry when you enter her. Do not show anger when you bite her neck. Be tender when you hold her down. Be sweet when you turn her over. Remember every second of her.”
