Then watch how she will welcome you with a thousand buds. The man who loves a body is called a guy. A man who loves a soul is called a real man. If you fell in love, then love like a real man. Do not throw her away like this. If you have hope on one side and fear on the other, it is like wings. You must have both to fly. .... Let her cure you.

You've accepted being 'the darkness, a swamp, and a monster.' Why? Because it is easier. Have you ever worked to get out of the darkness? No. Why? Because you feel strong there. … Do you have the courage to erase your past and write it again? You didn't even have the courage to look me in the eye and tell me you loved me. .... You already gave up on me. Let me go! Let me go!” He holds on to her, crying, then spins her around and kisses her. OMG! Amazing!
