Like the mercury I spilled in science class years ago, Divided & Re-Divided then gathered up only at the last moment. There is nothing like the moment you close you're eyes and you realize that there just may be a heaven. To have your lips slowly blanketed by a tongue that is warm & alive. F*$#, what is going on with me !? ... Getting horny over a questionnaire ! -You've got to be kidding me !
