Bugs stab their sweethearts in the stomach.

Male bed bugs and bat bugs use sharp penises to stab their partners in the abdomen and deliver sperm directly into the blood. Bean weevils, who have huge and spiny penises, also lacerate their mates during sex.

In this day and age where relationships appear as a mirage of something that could have amounted to something great , where political affiliations amount to die hard allegiance (literally) that one can opt to kill for the sake of someone else, where we throw away dark pasts in the name of moving on The question is really are we just storing up negative energy in the name of moving on and one day KABOOM!..Everything goes up in smoke.


I guess my thought for today is when we say we are moving on it should mean we have come to the realization and acceptance that whatever happened happened to make us better ,stronger ,more resilient and at the end of it all the other party knows they pinched us at the wrong place and they pinched us real hard till we decided to pack up and move on……
