Posted on the 31 May 2012 by Somkritya @somkritya
I used to love reading and watching movies. my favorite genres were thrillers and horror. yes i had a dark side and every now and then i used t let it out and pamper its wants and then hide it behind this sweet romantic exterior. But that was Yesterday,Today i am minutes away from being someones dinner and the table tells me its going to be quick and painless. ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
They say if you watch horror movie once in a while you will have nightmares full of gore and vile but if ever you cross that 500 movie limit devil himself will pay you a visit But how the devil will look you will never know it may be as a thing,a person or a cow or a crow and if this happens to be on friday the first you will be on his menu quenching his thirst ~a very drunk man
