“È come se un filo invisibile tenesse legate le nostre anime. Quando mi allontano troppo da te il filo tira lentamente fino a far staccare la mia anima dal mio corpo. E lei rimane li, vicina a te, te la trascini dietro, ovunque e ciò mi fa sentire un vuoto dentro, una mancanza, un continuo bisogno di tornare da te.”
