1. “We are the only poets, everyone else is prose.”

2. “My life had stood a loaded gun.”

3. “Jealousy is the cousin, the cousin of greed.”

4. “She dealt her pretty words like blades, how glittering they shone.”

5. “Would you be the savior of the broken? The beaten? The damned?”

6. “The coast disappeared when the sea drowned the sun.”

7. “Hope dangles on a string, like slow spinning redemption.”

8. “Parting is all we know of heaven, and all we need of hell.”

9. “I am nobody, who are you? Are you nobody too?”

10. “Pain make your way to me and I’ll always be just so inviting.”

11. “Just like the match you strike to incinerate, the lives of everyone you know.”

12. “It might be lonelier, without the loneliness.”
