Top 10 Best Quotes

“Because as soon as I leave after having you, I want you again. And then even when I have that, it’s not enough. When I see another man look at you the way I do, I want to kill him. I want to swallow you. I want to consume you. I want to possess you. I want you.”

“This man is my stalker, my terrorizer, my lover.”

“Hate can become so ingrained in you that it becomes part of your identity, your psyche.

That’s why some people spend their whole lives hating someone they repeatedly invite into their lives: they don’t even know who they are without it.”
