Murder is a terrible thing to do, but I just might give it a chance for you. We met last June on a wide and windy sidewalk, and I saw so soon you didn't walk such paths as I'd walk. How full your lips were with the subtle thoughts you'd slept upon, and you swung your hips with the easy malice of destroying what you stepped upon. Murder is a terrible thing to do, but I just might give it a chance for you. Out damned spot! I just can't wash this hand enough, because, tool or not, he probably had hobbies and aspirations and stuff. You taught me how to make an exception of myself, to embrace joy now and leave my scruples on the shelf. My heart was thrilled to see your eyes light up because of me, and my head was filled with your scent and your shitty Ayn Randian philosophy Murder is a terrible thing to do, but I just might give it a chance for you. Murder is a terrible thing to do, but I just might make an exception of you.

There's a ghost watching you fuck. There's a vampire watching your workout. There's a ghost watching you fuck. There are forces of primordial darkness all around us.
