Our souls and our minds not just our bodies are intertwined.

Feeling the shock effects as we become one, never knowing it was this incredible of a feeling to be connected to someone. I still remember the day that I met you and the thrill of that feeling makes it extremely difficult for me to forget you.

So why are we here?

Why are we swimming in such a big pool of uncertainty? Why do I ever have to question you and me and what… Continue
