I am a playwright who does not write comedies, or tragedies.
The world is not what it is supposed to be. We are tragically off course.
They don’t know I only speak in runaway train stations
and everybody is always a few minutes too late to the platform.
No one has ever gotten the chance to get too close
because it is never romantic to fuck the girl who makes love to her own sadness every single night.
I don’t want to sew.
How else will the buttons get onto the coat?
For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.
It would cost you a groaning to take off my edge.
I have brought you a hero’s fate, and a hero’s fate is never happy. It is never anything but tragic.
A person’s tragedy does not make up their entire life. A story carves deep grooves into our brains each time we tell it. But we aren’t one story. We can change our stories. We can write our own.
Eros und Ananke sind auch die Eltern der menschlichen Kultur geworden.
Love is fate that ends in tragedy.
