"Maybe the bad things that are waiting to happen to us won’t happen, maybe there’s happiness at the end of the left fork and warm places with the people who love us and no noise but no silence neither and there’s plenty of food and no one dies and no one dies and no one never never dies." The Knife of Never Letting Go, Patrick Ness.
the noise is a man unfiltered, and without a filter, a man is just chaos walking
but a knife ain’t just a thing, is it? it’s a choice, it’s something you do. a knife says yes or no, cut or not, die or don’t. a knife takes a decision out of your hand and puts it in the world and it never goes back again.

And it’s funny, in a moment like that, when what’s really happening is too intense to deal with, sometimes it’s best to leave it unspoken, and just enjoy each other’s company instead.
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms
