    Fait intéressant, il est l'imperfection qui fait de belles choses, même si ce point de vue peut sembler labyrinthique.

    Poetry the crown of my dreams, the sweet taste of love feelings, filigree perfection, your beauty caresses the nerves, valleys of sensual tenderness of your body, you are my eternal prayer to be with you, your beauty is an eloquent orgasm of pleasure, you are like erotic music of seduction, I see you only one and I see that heaven exists, and eternity is not enough for me to express to what extent I love you, I can talk about it endlessly, you are the most valuable gift of the universe, it’s impossible to think of a sweeter dessert, you play the melody of seduction, I fell in love only when I fell in love with you , my soul travels in endless fantasies about you, my heart loves you a billion times more every second, like you are dancing a striptease using a pole, by pole I mean my penis, Aphorisms The pheromones of selfishness are drawn to profit, people do not see themselves from different surveillance cameras, different points of view. The strained melody of life, the psyche is about to break, the epic eternity of romance in the infinity of truth, jokes To get rid of depression means not to beat the carpet in the yard. Batteries (eggs) shorted between your legs, pluses and minuses of your character. Mosquitoes, AIDS couriers, you've got an email. It’s scary when a child is quiet, and he shits in his hand and draws with his shit on a white wall, the sun, clouds, a house, well, this is a pathetic parody of this. When you try to interfere with a child, he starts to splash everything, and you stumble and vomit, you fall all the time with the child and everything is in shit and vomit, and you both cry like children. Furious debauchery in your eyes, the look of a lioness, you want a porn blockbuster with me. My virginity has ossified, and I will have to try to deprive me of it, it has so ingrained itself into my soul and body. Even after the tenth time, pieces of virginity will remain. I hate it when tall people lean on your head like a cane. A blowjob for a girl is like a flute of manipulation leading to money. Pickup, I don't know the password to her vagina, I need to say what she wants to hear. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
