A nature in me
A nature in me how sweetie life is - but a wonder yet to understand lies deep-down in my heart; how easily nerves flare up in sparks like the blaze of a nuclear nuke, and muscles depolarize in heat like a febrile child afflicted by bad air. i wish i can tread you down like a threshing hook, i dare to be deaf over insolence and loquaciousnes
