what lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why…

“you’re only as sick as your secrets.” — rick warren you hear that quote a lot, whether it’s from aa or the dude above, and hearing it again recently really got me thinking. as i said in this post, i toy with the idea of revealing more. but honestly, it scares the shit out of […]
