Es una chica indestructible,
utópica, a veces,
insoportable, otras tantas.

Se precipita cuando estás por besarla
y cuando estás a punto de irte,
te sujeta de la mano aún más fuerte
porque le tiene miedo a los hasta nunca
y a los para siempre.

¿Es ella real
o es una vaga fantasía?
¿Es ella una canción
o es el verso más triste
de una melodía que todos olvidaron?

No la rompas,
no,
no lo hagas.
Ella intenta arreglar tu corazón
a medida que entra por tus heridas.

Es la clase de chica que entra por las cicatrices,
echando saliva para que sanes,
para que cuando llegue el momento de vivirla,
no te duela ningún rincón del pasado.

Difícilmente se enamora,
pero cuando encuentra al chico correcto,
los lunes se los convierte en música
y quieres regalarle todas las sonrisas
que te resta por delante.

Quisieras vivir siempre a su lado,
pero un día, mira atrás
y empieza a caminar en reversa,
yendo de nuevo a aquel abrazo
que le hizo sentir lugar.

Let us all take a moment and appreciate the joy of Vanessa and Lin’s relationship. They are absolutely adorable!

There were times where people might have seen me and said, “Wow, she’s so lucky.” But I was depressed, I was going through something. That time I went through led me to make “Girl, Interrupted”. Most girls go through that at around that age - 20, 21. It’s much more common than we think, which is why I wanted to make that movie. It worked in the sense that I still have girls come up to me and say that it really helped them, and that was nice to hear.
