"I used to think my journal was the place for all the things i could never say aloud.
but then one day i met a girl, and I told her everything.
I told her that she rescued me, and I didn’t even know I was drowning.
I asked her how she could call herself a pacifist when she’d caused so many riots in my chest.
I quoted Victor Hugo who said “to love another person is to see the face of God.” which I knew was true. because now I can see every holy wrinkle.
And then after I was finally done, and I finally told her everything…
I learned that my journal is the place for all the things I should never say aloud."
