Unedited, Uncensored, Unsettling... By Jason Morton It was over. All over. Nothing left to care for, love or feel. We killed it all. Hope was a concept of the past, a means to Deliverance, deliverance a means to not feel guilty as the bombs fell. Those in charge never cared, they were out for the … Continue reading Stitched… Tuesday!
