"a man alone on a park bench looks lonely or in love. waiting or wasted. expectant or expunged.
a bride cries and the tears are cherished. everyone assumes it is happiness.
a person jumps off a thirteen story building. deeply depressed. or the weather felt nice enough to fly in.
a man dies serving his country. a hero.
a man dies serving his country. a villain.
a girl cuts her hair short and they gasp and wonder. maybe her neck got tired.
a smile at the dinner table and everything’s peachy.
a simple ‘I’m fine’ and they leave you alone.
she sleeps around, she’s a whore.
he sleeps around, what’s his score?
you’re young and naive.
you’re old and outdated.
we all know what’s best for everyone else.
we all know nothing."
"you can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for 2 months and feel everything. time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love"
