    You are a hot shower of passion, ultra divine, overdone with sexuality. From you passion to trembling, everything vibrates inside like a vibration signal of passionate sex. From the mouth, the waterfall pours not saliva, but compliments. My sperm cells are endlessly ready to sing of your beauty. You are sexy hypper. You're like a porn addict. From your beauty I want to growl and bark, such an instinctive delight. Like a stripper who gets bombarded with money and likes. I love only you, I am aware of it to the very depths of the subconscious. My love for you will be reincarnated. I want to suck on your beautiful body and caress and caress. I am the powerful sticky stick of love, I am like the glue of love addiction. You're like a hot fetish. The endless depth of insight that I love only you. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
