I’ve piloted back to this moment to see you
as you were, a skeleton carrying your own ruined self –
a hungry ghost, deflated shriveled skin, mouth unhinged
to scoop up stray bits of the love you never got –
over your shoulder. You clobbered the girl that I was
with your miserable sack of nothing, beating into me
the whippings you got as a girl. But know that
I am rebuilding myself:

I have the technology, I am learning how
to regenerate, and I am reincarnating as a queer
man. Are you surprised? I am becoming what you
hated most.

  1. Are you in bad need of love spell to bring back your ex lover or reunite your marriage? I had a problem with my husband a year and six months ago, which lead us apart. When he broke up with me, I was confuse and did not know what to do to get him back until i came across Dr. Omoluyi on the internet on how He has helped so many people solve their various problems. I Emailed Him and I told Him my problem and i did what he asked me to do for him to help me, to briefly make the long story short, Before I knew it, in less than 24 HOURS, my Husband gave me a call and he came back to me and told me he was sorry about what was going on between the both of us. Finally, I am deeply showing my gratitude to Dr. Omoluyi for keeping his words and promises in bringing back my husband to me in just 24 hours. If you need his help, you can email him at: [ ], Call +1 (518) 460-6400 or Reach him through his Website: [ ]. Mia Klaus, USA.
