hard to explain, like she was a mystery inside of an enigma.
it dawns on me, it doesn’t sound sane in the slightest bit but she must
be an alien from outer space. No wonder she seems so pious, so pure.
Suddenly images appear in my head, one flashing after another. It was as

Please, one more time WORK so I pray…LOUDLY. I want to go to her world.
