And so I continue to play out this strange role. The reason is quite simple.
Because by doing so, maybe I can return to some semblance of the past.
Because by doing so, maybe I can figure out why I like walking so late at night.
I guess, in a way, you could say I’ve fallen in love with my previous self.
Ryougi Shiki (Remaining Sense of Pain - Light Novel by Kinoko Nasu)
I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity. Nor I had time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.
