True Blood Quotes

Everyone I love leaves, everything I touch dies, so forgive me if I don't share your faith in my lord.


I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago
