new moon

time passes. even when it seems impossible. even when each tick of the second hand aches like a bruise. it passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does even for me. (93)

forbidden to remember, terrified to forget; it was a hard line to walk. (117)

it was a crippling thing, this sensation that a huge hole had been punched through my chest, excising my most vital organs and leaving ragged, unhealed gashes around the edges that continue to throb and bleed despite the passage of time. rationally, i knew my lungs must still be intact, yet i gasped for air and my head spun like my efforts yielded me nothing. my heart must have been beating too, but i couldn't hear the sound of my pulse in my ears, my hands felt blue with cold. i curled inward hugging my ribs to hold myself together. i scrambled for my numbness, my denial, but it evaded me. and yet, i found i could survive. (118)

i still wanted to cheat. it was senseless, and i really didn't care. i was going to be reckless as i could possibly manage in Forks. i would not be the only keeper of an empty contract. (147)

there was something to search for unattainable and impossible, uncaring and distracted...but he was out there somewhere. i had to believe that. (16)

it was strage for me being this close emotionally rather than physically, though the physical was strange for me too - to another humman being. it wasn't my usual style. i didn't normally relate to people so easily, on such a basic level. (179)

racing down the road like that had been amazing. the feed of the wind in my face, the speed and the freedom...it reminded me of a past life, flying through the thick forest without a road, piggyback while he ran. (190)

i was like a lost moon - my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic disaster-movie scenario of desolation - that continued, nevertheless, to circle in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity. (201)

his name burst through all the walls i'd build to contain it. Edward, Edward, Edward. i was going to die. it shouldn't matter if i thought of him now. Edward, I love you. (242)

it was like someone had died - like I had died. because it had been more than just losing, the truest of true loves, as if that were not enough to kill anyone. it was also losing a whole future, a whole family - the whole life that i'd chosen... (398)

"La tua cantante." ..."they have a name for someone who smells the way bella does to me. they call my singer - because her blood sings for me." (490)

"you're not asleep, and you're not dead. i'm here, and i love you. i have always loved you, and i will always love you. i was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that i was away. when i told you that i didn't want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy. (510)

"before you, bella, my life was like a moonless night, very dark, but there were stars - points of light and reason...and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. suddenly everything was on fire, there was brilliancy there was beauty. when you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. i couldn't see the stars anymore. and there was no more reason for anything. (514)

he really did want me the way i wanted him - forever. it was only fear for my soul, for the human things he didn't want to take from me that made him so despereate to leave me mortal. (527)


i'll be back so soon you won't have time to miss me. look after my heart - i've left it with you. (95)

"but i'll never see anyone else, bella. i only see you. even when i close my eyes and try to see something else. ask quil or embry. it drives them all crazy." (177)

"sleep, my bella. dream happy dreams. you are the only one who has ever touched my heart. it will always be yours. sleep, my only love." (195)

"i was going to say if i had found someone, but that won't do. if i had found you, there isn't a doubt in my mind how i would have proceeded. i was that boy, who would have - as soon as i discovered that you were what i was looking for - gotten down on one knee and endeavored to secure your hand. i would have wanted you for eternity, even when the word didn't have quite the same connotations." (277)

...just playing with my hair and smiling whenever i looked up. it was probably superficial to notice such things while i had so many more important things to think about, but his smile still knocked the breath out of me. he was so beautiful that it made it hard sometimes to think about anything else, hard to concentrate on..hostile vampire armies. i was only human. (315)

it was childish, but i liked the idea that his lips would be the last good thing i would feel. even more embarassingly, something i would never say aloud, i wanted his venom to poison my system. it would make me belong to him in a tangible, quantifiable way. (324)

"i'm in love with you, bella...bella, i love you. and i want you to pick, me instead of him. i know you don't feel that way, but i need the truth out there so that you know your options. i would't want a miscommunication to stand in our way." (327)

"isabella swan?..i promise to love you forever - every single day of forever. will you marry me?" (460)

"i lived through an entire twenty-four hours thinking you were dead bella. that changed the way i look at a lot of things."
"did it change the way i smell to you?"
"not at all. but...having experienced the way it feels to think i've lost you...my reactions have changed. my entire being shies away from any course that could inspire that kind of pain again." (471)

"i'm not going to cut you in half anymore, bella." i understood what he was saying he was telling me that he loved me the most, that his surrender proved it. (598)

"you know i love you."
"i know,...you know how much i wish it was enough." (602)

i fought with the clasp on my bracelet, trying to undo it with shaking fingers. "no, bella" edward whispered, capturing my hands. "it's part of who you are." he pulled me into the cradle of his arms as the sobs broke free again. (608)

"i cannot live without my life! i cannot live without my soul! - wuthering heights (611)

"i'm going to need that ring. it's time to tell charlie." he once again slid my ring into place on the third finger of my left hand. where it would stay - conceivably fore the rest of eternity. (620)
