Desolate sands, vacant blood.
Sunset bleeds into final night.
Aut Caesar Aut Nihil.
Sentinel of dust.
Guard your resolutions quietly.
Calamity comes but to no avail.
The card signifies strength in opposition. If attacked he will meet the onslaught boldly.
Animals do not know sin.
This is the principle difference between us,
To feel guilty is to feel human.
When I die, let the wolves dance in my silver.
Lay the dust of me down in a snowy place.
So I may melt into the earth,
under the weight of your sun.
The graphite colored smoke, that rose from your charcoal covered body, in billows of silver.
The ferocious orange and yellow flames, that dance at the thought of bringing your bones into the sun.
Sandalwood and gasoline.
Look how soon we are all forgotten.
Even the best of us, cannot have our names, carried in the wind forever.
The oldest of demons.
Most loathsome of creatures.
You who dare claw and scrape at the light.
You empty thing.
Crude skin grafted over hollow bones.
Sunken eyes and misshapen spine.
Unnaturally long fingernails.
The cackling laugh of a snarling dog.
You are but a crippled appendage of the world.
Rot like any other dead thing.
Disappear from my memory forever.
lest they find what drunkeness suits them best,
and be called happy.
A human being.
An abhorrent thing to be.
Poor loathsome creature.
As if your heart alone,
wasn’t enough to carry.
I've gone, and given you mine.
The moon ran its fingers through your dark brown mane.
A porcelain lioness, glowing under the night sky.
Norepinephrine. Serotonin. Dopamine.
No matter how wide my embrace,
I can never hold the sky.
I always fall in love with the wrong women.
Distant stars in the dark night sky.
out of reach.
Smoldering, in a sea of cosmic smoke.
Burning, in a dazzling blaze of glory.
For all the stars to see.
These are your waters,
I'm just drowning in them.
“Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.”
Yellow roses, shine golden.
Adorned with blood.
Everyone needs to feel like they have secrets.
I loved you.
That’s my secret.
Soft curling flesh.
Pink, supple and wet.
Seed, tilling around.
Ravishing soil, tickling leaves.
Dancing on sodden land.
I wanted to change, more than I wanted to die.
That's the only reason I'm still here.
Whispered, the butterfly.
I loath the sickly, yellow glow of mans fire.
How it paints the walls of his dwelling with unnatural light.
He has forgotten me.
Now that he can see in his darkness,
he has no reason to leave it.
"Do not worry I will be gentle," said the wolf.
"You mean to tell me, a beast as monstrous as you, is capable of mercy," said the traveler.
"No, not mercy," said the wolf. “Gentleness, there is a difference. I will devour you tenderly.”
The shadows grow pale.
The patient light of the moon,
Hidden enemies, darkness, deception.
Babylon rests, in sun-golden rays.
Fortuna smiles upon you.
Material happiness, fortunate marriage, contentment.
Eternity is the constant abandoning of oneself to infinity.
Time is eternity in motion.
You need not liken yourself to a beast,
as exclamation of your strength.
There are plenty of wolves in the forest already.
You don’t have to be one of them,
if you don’t want to.
You took the beasts among us,
and made them gods.
