Holly A Smith Quotes

"I am inundated with feeling. I feel like a pinball machine on tilt. All the buzzers are ringing, lights are flashing, and I am about to fry my circuits.

I immerse myself in the hot water. I want to wash the smells off my body. I can smell Isabellas hair, her breath, and her child vaginal scent. My hair smells of smoke,and I want to wash Francis off me."
