Just checking in on whether the eyes are low? In haste.
Just thought I’d see if the bone is sharp? Speak soon.
Quickly following up on whether the heart is honed. Cheers now.
Just quickly following up on whether the nerves are ripped! Much love!
Just quickly checking in on if the throat is cracked? Be well!
Just thought I’d check in quickly on if the jaws are keen? Big hugs.
Thought I’d send a reminder on whether the lips are split. All best.
Wanted to send a follow up on if the chords are firm. All best
Just following up quickly on if the breath is brass. All best.
Just following up quickly on if the tone is steel! All yours.
Just following up quickly on if the lungs are spent? Take care!
Wanted to check in on whether the hurt is fine? See you.
Sending a follow up on whether the grief is full. X X.
