- Ian McEwan in Machines Like Me

Love wasn't possible without a self, and nor was thinking.

- Ian McEwan in Machines Like Me

Feelings. The truth is, for so long, I'd forgotten what those even were. I've been stuck in one place, in a cave you might say. A deep, dark cave. And then, I left some Eggos out in the woods, and you came into my life and for the first time in a long time, I started to feel things again. I started to feel happy. But lately, I guess I've been feeling distant from you. Like you're pulling away from me or something. I miss playing boardgames every night, making triple-decker Eggo extravaganzas at sunrise, watching westerns together before we doze off. But I know you're getting older. Growing. Changing. And I guess if I'm being really honest, that's what scares me. I don't want things to change. So I think maybe that's why I came in here, to try to maybe... stop that change. To turn back the clock. To make things go back to how they were. But I know that's naive. It's just not how life works. It's moving. Always moving, whether you like it or not. And, yeah, sometimes it's painful. Sometimes it's sad. And sometimes... it's surprising. Happy. So you know what? Keep on growing up, kid. Don't let me stop you. Make mistakes, learn from 'em and when life hurts you, because it will, remember the hurt. The hurt is good. It means you're out of that cave.

And the moral of the story' -
Girl , soft from not paths .
Stay alone and just not on ,
Never trust a stranger .

Never go to bitt'ren end .
Do not give yourself in someone else's hands .
Your beauty attracts them ,
and a wolf is every man .

Remember one thing: In the night
is already so many Wolf wakes .
Wines them no tear ,
Wolves have sharp teeth .
