to feel love. Pain. Jealousy. Guilt. I wonder if it’s the
same for people, lost in comas. Is there really such a thing”

in the mirror

picked up speed
no limits,no top end,
just a high velocity rush
to madness.”

After body rush,
intensity building.

Touch me there.”

Who cares? Hindsight is useless.”

only not.”
