So, I pick up my pen to put into words how much I love her, how she has the longest hair in the world and how I’m drowning in it, and if you think that’s pathetic, I pity you, how her eyes are mine and she is mine and she is me and when she screams, I scream and everything I will ever do will be for her, always and always I will give her everything, and from now until the day I die I will get in the morning only for her, only to make her want to love me, Translated by Frank Wynne.
