1. This is not a love letter.
2. I am tired of self sacrifice.
3. Every snowflake, however unique, is still made of water.
4. Beauty is becoming a stranger because of people like you.
5. Wounded sparrow tongues do not fly.
6. There are no mitigating circumstances.
7. Infidelity is still infedelity.
8. Make up your mind beforehand.
9. I am my own bloody Cassandra.
10. Happy unwanted birthday to matching little me.

Who, if I screamed, would hear me among the angels?
and even if one of them pressed me suddenly against his heart
I would be consumed in that overwhelming existence.
For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror,
which we are still just able to endure,
as it threatens to annihilate us.

every angel is terrifying.
