    001. we all learn to make mistakes and run from them.
    002. soldier on, keep your heart close to the ground.
    003. what makes a man spend his whole life in disguise?
    004. if it brings me to my knees, it’s a bad religion.
    005. i’m walking around like a soldier who’s home from war.
    006. does it almost feel like nothing’s changed at all?
    007. you carried a black heart passed down from your dad.
    008. now after all these years, you are at last opening.
    009. head hanging with horns, from your father.

    Favourite films: The Young Victoria

    Some people are born more fortunate than others. Such was the case with me. But as a child I was convinced of quite the opposite. What little girl does not dream of growing up as a princess? But some palaces are not at all what you’d think. Even a palace can be a prison.

I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend…
