Story 1

she said she didn't
know why said no she
hated him even
when he tore his clothes
in his hurry to

touch her said it was
hate still the moment
his tongue said even
then she said even
hate as he whispered

beggings in her ear
yes she said still but
sometimes said sometimes
his touch said sometimes
lust softens our bones
