  • Pulse

  • The Horrifying Truth.

    Into an empty room I stared. Four walls. One bed. One girl. A long white box, imprisoning me inside its own hell. Often she’d come to me. Piercing my innocent mind with the horrifying truth. Draped over her skinny body was a dress. It did not fit the...

  • You'll Never Catch Me
