  • ...if you love someone, your madness, which is love itself, leads you to acknowledge being able to live with it. I was an atheist then, and he came from one of those creepy radical christian families. Our 8 year relationship always consisted me of telling him to be HIMSELF, and not to a woman, who, (and this part is true), would only end up lonely and unhappy. Anyway, he didn't listen. I was raped o my virginity at 25, almost 26, (7 days earlier), and he never knew. I was drinking too much at the time, and apparently, (for the last two weeks, he was living with me), he dropped back on meth, and I yelled at him like, from what I hear, "his mom, not a friend." I had no right to do that. I moved continents after that. From America to Asia.
