  • Connotation
  • Attitude and Tone
  • My love is an extreme sickness. Prolonging the disease. My love lives on whatever will keep it going. My reasoning acted as a doctor and treated my love, then left because i never did what I was told. Now that he has left i have realized that my sexual desire was against his rules and that it is deadly. I do not care anymore, and now my mind is past the curing stage. Now I am going crazy and insane. I thought love was beautiful, I have soon come to the conclusion that it is dark and deadly.
