I would have rewritten my entire life for you.

My entire life would have rewritten you.

Have you rewritten my life?

You have rewritten life.

Rewritten life.

If you never tell me to let you go, then I’ll hang on forever.

I’ll tell you to go hang forever if you never let me on.

Forever – I’ll never let you tell me if you hang.

If you let me, I’ll hang forever.

Let me hang forever.

Hang forever.



Chapter 4


She felt a shedding of his skin, like a snake, and knew that he’d discovered a piece of his soul that even she hadn’t known existed.

Even he’d known a snake felt a piece of his shedding skin, knew that she discovered his soul… and that she hadn’t existed.

He’d discovered that she existed; she felt a piece of his shedding skin; a snake hadn’t known; and a soul knew.

A piece of a snake existed; she knew he’d felt his discovered skin and shedding soul.

A snake felt his soul; a shedding of skin, she discovered.

She felt his snake, discovered a shedding of a soul.

A snake discovered a shedding soul.

Shedding a soul.
