“ I am a Millennial. Generation Y. Born between the birth of AIDS and 9/11, give or take. They call us “the Global Generation”. We are known for our entitlement and narcissism. Some say it’s because we’re the first generation where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up. Others think it’s because social media allows us to post every time we fart or have a sandwich for all the world to see. But it seems that our one defining trait is a numbness to the world, an indifference to suffering ”
Madison Montgomery, American Horror Story
“ He looked at me like I was crazy. Most of my lovers do, and that’s partly why they love me, and partly why they leave ”
“ While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close. ”
“ Isn’t it strange? There are so many people out there who secretly love someone. And there are so many people out there who have no idea that someone secretly loves them. ”
Is it you, or is it the idea of you?
Is it your kisses, or is it what happens when I think of your kisses?
Is it the way I feel in your arms, or is it the way arms feel around me?
I want to be held.
I don’t want to let you nearer.
I want to be loved.
I don’t want to let you in.
I want to be the last thing you think about before you go to sleep.
I want to be the first thing you think about in the morning.
I don’t want to feel like you’re thinking about me too much.
I don’t want to feel like I mean too much to you.
I want to feel like I mean everything to you.
I want to feel nothing.
I want to take, and take, and take from you.
Take your love. Your affection. Your time. Your words. Your lyrics. Your thoughts.
But I don’t want to give.
I’m not going to give.
Pretty fucking sweet.
