Excerpts of Things I Will Never Say
"You loved me, I became beautiful."
"Deception… that is what life is about. We deceive people
into thinking we are humane, but who are we kidding? We are the monsters under our children’s beds; the monsters inside their closets, hanging on by a thread between our wild thoughts that are clouding our actions."
"All I wanted was to be loved like Poe loved his Lee, Like
William Shakespeare loved his poetry."
"By that time, the sun had already set. It was dark and gloomy as I turned my bike around and had a lonely ride home. That was the last time I rode a bike."
