Do you really need love?

If I had a daughter, I would tell her this….. Everyone wants love; they want it bad, O Lor’ A girl without a lover really wants him bad But when she finds someone her heart beats for, She also gives him the weapon to make her sad. Do you really need love, think about it [...]

Partners in Destiny

What is this talk of Master and Slave? Words are not sharp to slay Nor sweet to assuage this flaming soul. To revolt so badly that your mighty strength Yields to my tantrums and listens to my words.
