Sitater fra dette verket

[...]You leave the phone on beside you as you fall asleep. I sit in my bed and listen to your breathing, until I know you are safe, until I know you no longer need me for the night.

Godt sagt! (2) Varsle Svar

autonomy, n.

“I want my books to have their own shelves,” you said, and that’s how I knew it would be okay to live together.

Godt sagt! (2) Varsle Svar

breathtaking, adj.

Those mornings when we kiss and surrender for an hour before we say a single word.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

gravity, n.

I imagine you saved my life. And then I wonder if I'm just imagining it.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

[...]These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

I, n.
Me without anyone else.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

ineffable, adj.

These words will ultimately end up being the barest of reflections, devoid of the sensations words cannot convey. Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

imperceptible, adj.

We stopped counting our relationship in dates (first date, second date, fifth date, seventh) and started counting it in months. That might have been the first true commitment, this shift in terminology. We never talked about it, but we were at a party and someone asked how long we’d been together, and when you said, “A month and a half,” I knew we had gotten there.

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

misgivings, n.

Last night, I got up the courage to ask you if you regretted us.
“There are things I miss,” you said. “But if I didn’t have you, I’d miss more.”

Godt sagt! (1) Varsle Svar

ethereal, adj.

You leaned your head into mine, and I leaned my head into yours. Dancing cheek to cheek. Revolving slowly, eyes closed, heartbeat measure, nature’s hum. It lasted the length of an old song, and then we stopped, kissed, and my heart stayed there, just like that.
