Love has to be reinvented
In the diaries of Cocteau, I came across this fragment, which deeply affected me:
“And then I realized that the world of my dreams is equally full of memories as my real life, so it is the real being and also richer, deeper, full of episodes, and more precise in many details. It was difficult to properly locate memories in one or the other world. They were extraordinary, complicated, and have become my second life, twice bigger, and twice longer than my own”.
Why? Because you have this gun with cold water when I’m turning into someone unlike.
With or without is a trivial difference. Is it not the way to communicate with friends?
We are still here.
I know your deepest secret fear. And you know my deepest secret fear: egoism.
