Autumn Bliss

The Sun wishes to set early if it may And for the graceful birds to travel South.

Basically, it focuses on the tiny world of atoms and their constituents, how they work, and the relationships between them. Quantum physics is used in many scientific domains, such as biology, chemistry, astronomy, and the understanding of materials.…

Love Is a Crime

I did not regret it; these were part of my actions.  As I was on top of him, he could not lay still. It made me feel good, to finally make some decisions by myself. So, I did not hesitate one bit. Before I had time to think, my hand was touching his belly, it felt deep, then I continued my way down. He cried; I did not stop as he laid on his back defenseless. I had done my part, satisfied, I took a deep breath, trying to catch it. My heart was beating extremely fast, everything was done,…
