”She is a mystery, her emotions are too, you can’t figure her out, no one can. She is not defined by meaningless words on ripped papers, I would love to write about her but I cannot define her by a sad poem, she is so much more. She dances with the devil like he is made of the threads of an angel. she glances at the sky like it’s a reflection of her soul, she finds pieces of herself in the moon and stars and she can’t help but raise her hand and move her fingers softly while murmuring to a sweet lullaby. She doesn’t hold on to the people she loves, scared that if she did she’ll break them under her fragile hold. She looks at herself like she is a scintilla, another pointless nothing, but she looks at people like they’re sunflowers with galaxies floating in their roots. she is a delicate snowflake but she isn’t measured by the temperature, she doesn’t melt when she is warm, she isn’t controlled by the weather, in fact the only thing that controls her is the unknown limit of mortality. She clutches her soul like its the only salvation she has of her existence. She isn’t scared of the darkness, the fire in her veins is enough to provide her light. She isn’t like most of us, she isn’t stuck, she is lost and she doesn’t want to be found.”

”Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

”You always did love the ocean. Her white, frothy foam and enormous waves. Her salty sea breeze and gardens in her depths. The ocean never whispered cruel words behind your back, did she? That’s why you tried so hard to become friends with her. Maybe if everyone else had been nice, they would’ve seen the sunflowers and good intentions growing in your heart. Now I realize that you asked to go to the beach quite often. While we would be tame and lay out on our beach towels upon thrones of sand, you would dive into unexplored regions of water, washing away every thought of man/monster. I can’t even tell which is which anymore, from the stories you told me. What kind of secrets did the seashells sell to you? They must have been precious jewels for the amounts of time you spent under the sea, like sand slipping through an hourglass. We always joked that one day you would swim away and never come back and you just laughed and said “If only.” If only.”
