“Unstructured” by Aiden Muscovitch

Riding my heart, flying like a kite.  Awaken my love, awaken my light.  Channel my soul, control my mind.  Have my life, take away my night.  Everlasting eyes, peering at a gaze.  Long-lasting love will never be the same. + Never Won’t happen, the past is inevitable.  Always watching, I am pitiful.  Take your time, you’re already beautiful.  All you do is doubt, flaws are … Continue reading “Unstructured” by Aiden Muscovitch

After I was done I was told that I have to do the ultrasound again, but this time they would use contrast dye, which makes the ultrasound clearer.
