My name is Anca .I study medicine but my soul is a volcano which erupts in the symbol of art.I know what you will never be able to know about yourself. The heartbeat that follows the heartbeat you hear sounds like an echo in my consciousness thirsty for an absolute crunch. My feelings are moving shadows of a unique happiness, a memory of the pathos that burns in me as a goblet of becoming, of perceiving love on a higher level. A tear flows over these lines unable to express the incomprehensibility of what I feel. This drop of the purity of a perception, however, tries to warm with sincerity a moment that bleeds on the hearse of a life. It is a symbol of the immeasurable appreciation I carry for you, of the silence in which I could listen to my soul in love with someone other than myself.My phone number is:+40771792009and my email is anasugar@yahoo.com
