    you will fall
    and wonder
    why the world
    isn’t filled
    with soul clones

    it isn’t

    now don’t you feel stupid

    she reminds me of Bombay Sapphire
    long sexy stem

    The Cauldron of Emotions by Charldia

    A cauldron of emotions bubbling and brewing inside
    Some make us proud, some we want to hide.
