"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

The Sparrow Lover's Wife

Nobody ever thinks of the sparrow lover's wife
Raising pigs alone
For a sparrow lover who never comes home 

I wish the sparrow lover's wife
Would pay the sparrow lover back in kind
Let the cuckoo wear cuckold's horns

It's true,
I was once the sparrow
But in truth, I'd rather be the sparrow's lover

To die in the middle
(To die in the heavens, no less)
Is a kinder fate than to live to the end.
