"She buried her ears into the calm of his heartbeat, and in a matter of seconds: fell terribly in love with the way her loneliness fell softly and suddenly, asleep, in his chest."

"I don’t think I could love you so much if you had nothing to complain of and nothing to regret. I don’t like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and of little value. Life hasn’t revealed its beauty to them."
"1. There’s a box at the back of my wardrobe hidden from my parents with all the things I’ve stolen. Necklaces I’ve never worn and jackets not made for me. I’m a thief, I’m a thief and I’ve been a criminal from the age of seven and it scares me that I still have no remorse.

2. My sister once asked me if I was bi-polar because I’d turn on her so quickly that it was comparable to a city blackout. I’m not bi-polar, I told her. I’m just an awful person trying to find the nerve to be better.

3. In the small alleyway between our house and our neighbours, there’s an everest of cigarette butts, compiled over years. My friends tell me “do you know what you’re doing to yourself? Do you know it’s bad for you?” Of course I know it’s goddamn bad for me and bad belongs with bad, didn’t you know that?

4. 36 is the number of times I’ve already fallen in love this year and it’s not even May. My problem is that I’ve got the heart of a fly and it lives for 14 days and then dies. I’m trying to make it live longer.

5. My mother named me after her midwife, Salma. The name means peace, but I wailed like a falling building until I was seven. I’m older now and I’m trying to live upto the name by keeping my cries on paper. But I’m scared of this habit the most. I’m scared that one day I’ll open my mouth to cry to somebody and that nothing will come out."
