I'm proud of my heart.
It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,
but somehow it still works.
There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...
