  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    jokes You rarely brush your teeth, the acidity in your mouth rises and you can spit acid like a reptile. Spermotoxicosis bells ring (eggs). It's not a bra, it's a posture corrector. How many guys surrounded the guy and his girlfriend, the guy hit himself with his own shocker, the girl gives her handbag, girl: well, what should I do with you, next time she is a charge of a shocker, go ahead Rambo. Populism and reforms are a toast, nothing will come true. Poems My heart raves about you, inexhaustible attraction, you are a beautiful eternity in my dreams, you are the foundation of my happiness, my tenderness will heal your wounds, love for you is a dogma of the heart, tears of sincerity of the violin, and touching piano notes, separation of suffering is a cello, cymbals of insight of love , flashes of passion, deepen love, I recognize in you infinite beauty, bottomless love, you are the infinite power of orgasm, pleasure, one second is like an eternity of memory pleasure, you are a tattoo in my subconscious, in my dreams, three times of endless love: dreams of you are the future, the present is love, the past is the nostalgia of eternal fidelity. Aphorisms Like a ghost that passes through all the abomination of this world, devoid of illusions, the radiance of emptiness, the dramatic puzzles of selfishness, the colorful palette of atmospheres of memories is the basis of the picture of the world, merging with eternity, to know its infinite wisdom, reincarnation around the cosmic axis, love is a relationship of energies, illusions give insensibility and cloying, virtuality is happiness in self-deception, digital illusions. Populism is a monopoly of manipulation. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
