After one drop you got a fountain to seize
Just a french girl lost in her own mind.




" (…) au milieu des confidences les plus intimes, il y a toujours des restrictions, par fausse honte, délicatesse, pitié. On découvre chez l’autre ou dans soi-même des précipices ou des fanges qui empêchent de poursuivre; on sent, d’ailleurs, que l’on ne serait pas compris; il est difficile d’exprimer exactement quoi que ce soit; aussi les unions complètes sont rares."

" (…)  in the midst of the most intimate confidences, there will always be found restrictions, because of false shame, delicacy, pity. In the other or in yourself, precipices or miry paths are discovered, which hinder you from penetrating any farther; you feel, moreover, that you will not be understood; it is difficult to express accurately something, no matter what; therefore fully developed union are rare."
