  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Revelation of the depths of the soul In a vessel from my broken heart where my eternal love for you is stored, bloody ink of love of love of suffering, with red tears of sorrow I write about love for you about an endless suffering soul, I can write about my nostalgic feelings all my life, my obsessed nostalgia is eternity devotion to you. The revelation of the depths of the soul, everything but you is insignificant. I immerse myself in a deep hypnosis of love for you, in the dimension of infinite love, where only you are. Neither the pill nor the psychologist will help stop thinking about you, take away these thoughts as if taking your own life. It draws me deeper and deeper into the depths of love, all this is very deep in the subconscious. Life without you is the agony of nonsense. Every second I fall in love with you more and more and this cannot be stopped because it is love.You are like the warm light of my soul, every memory warms the soul, the light of your love is like a night lamp in the terrible loneliness of the night, like the lightest, weightless notes of romantic music. You are the true decoration of reality. You are my eternal hunger for sex, a waterfall of love inspiration in which you bathe, the waters flowing from the ocean of hot passion.A brutal dose of daily excitement from your divine body. My body burns in the eternal flame of lust for love for you. You are forever at the top of the ratings of beauty and my ideals and values, the peak of absolute beauty. Records of likes and reposts of your body shapes are only in my mind. When I think of you, blood cells turn into notes of love passing through the heart, penetrating the soul, in neurons there are only impulses of your image of them hundreds of billions a day, all over the body going into the soul and dreams. A powerful force of love for you comes from me. You are my true ideal of love, the rest are just insignificant clones of your ideal, since you are an example of true beauty, it is with you that I crave to be forever, since you are a priceless gift of all eternities and all universes. My love for you goes to infinity. Author Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
