“Life is about knowing when to blink,

and when to stare in awe.”

Isabelle F.

“One of the hardest lessons you will ever have to learn is that you can’t save anyone.

Not with love, not by force.

Not even by bleeding yourself out to keep them alive.

You can only be there.

Keeping them warm while they fight and hope it is enough.”

Isabelle F.

I’ve come to the conclusion that human beings are impossible beings.

With our art and resilience and fragility.

We are the universe condensed into flesh and bone.

Brimming with so much hope it could implode into a thousand stars.

Isabelle F.

One day, we found each other among the chaos and confusion of existence.

And today,

in this dawn,

in this city,

in this life, we grow within the other with love blooming from our fingertips.

“In the end it didn’t matter who was the lighter and who was the match.

We both got fucking burned.”

Isabelle F .

“All my life, I believed falling in love would feel like calm water and a soft place to land.

I believed I had found it. And that I was so so so lucky to be holding it.

I didn’t realize the blood running from my fingers until it was to late.”

Isabelle F.

“The day I lost you my tongue felt like copper.

Salty and rusty and so so heavy it almost forced me to the ground.

The day I lost you my lungs were ready to give out.

I had forgotten how walking the same earth as you kept me alive.

The day I lost you I found myself.

It was so hard, to remember who I was aside from the person who loved you.

I’m still not sure, darling, but I’ll keep on searching.

One breath at a time.”

Isabelle F.

“When I say I’m yours I don’t mean I belong to you like a property.

That’s too easy, darling. Too plain for this love that we’ve crafted.

When I say I’m yours I mean my soul chose yours to make a home with.

It means my every heartbeat pounds to the rhythm of your smile, and my every breath aches to fan over your skin.

It means your name is etched on my eyelids so I can take you with me when dreams come to carry me away.

It means I’ll stay even when everything else is fading away.”

Isabelle F.

“You swore the future would wait for us.

Swore it would be enough to hold onto sandcastle promises and volatile tides.

Swore the days we spent in bliss would turn into an eternity built together.

But, darling, time flew by so fast we never even had a chance to catch it.”

Isabelle F.

“In the end the words we didn’t speak were the noose that took the last breath of whatever love was left between us.”
