Bed Bugs


Fuel to the funeral, recess actions failing, the cold feeling. slippery drain habits, the shadow of reaction in the distance as hollow hanging empty. Knot in Noose swift breach to trachea finished. Quietly eyes witness as limbs seem possessed from convulsions. replaced Erection from only a pathetic prosthetic, force of trauma, burning at the third degree.
