Five Second Slave

Thu, 11/19/2015 - 22:53 -- Dehausi

Whips. They’re flames of hatred about his body; cutting deep into the flesh and making him bleed.


Cords. Wrapped around his neck; wound tightly, softly, then tightly again. And it manipulates the speed of which he breathes- manipulates the way he walks; the way he speaks.


But never the way he thinks, and the things he believes.
