Days I feel like a human being, while other days I feel more like a sound. I touch the world not as myself but as an echo of who I was.

Quote
““You’re not a monster,” I said. But I lied. What I really wanted to say was that a monster is not such a terrible thing to be. From the Latin root monstrum, a divine messenger of catastrophe, then adapted by the Old French to mean an animal of myriad origins: centaur, griffin, satyr. To be a monster is to be a hybrid signal, a lighthouse: both shelter and warning at once.”
— Ocean Vuong, from “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous”

Every time I wrote your name, I lied. Every time I wrote your name, it was the truth.
