No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine they can reach one other. In reality they only pass each other by.

There's nothing deviant about love.
Love is watching someone die.


You know that point in your life when you realize the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of home is gone... You feel like you can never get it back. It's like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist. Maybe it's like this rite of passage, you know. You won't ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something. I don't know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place.

- Garden State

Sometimes you have to get away to find home.

A Beautiful Lie reviews
One-shot. “I love you.” A weight disappeared off my chest, faded away with the admittance of my words. I told her I loved her all the time. But this time the words were different. The meaning had changed. Everything had changed.

One-shot. "All this time?" I nodded, my throat dry. "Every day. Even after a few years passed. I couldn't escape."
