A life beyond the darkness

Is all most wish for.

Still the waves lap the shore

Of our consciousness

Slowly slapping the silvery

Synapses until epiphany comes.

We are the answer to the ultimate question…

And we are the counterpoint as well…

An ageless angel

Sat upon the snow-covered

Mountain, a light against the darkness.

He tends to the dead and the dying on the

Battlefield.

The men lay in pools of  blood

Calling to him. Asking for forgiveness

And salvation between gasps of

Flooded lungs. They sat calling, wanting

Only rest…They continued to call

Into the night unaware that

Lucifer

Is his name.

Craze

leave a comment »

An indian summer

The heat rails against

The spirit that I have salvaged.

I cannot feel what

The others want me to feel.

Pumping hips,

Vigorous needings…

Allowing myself to feel

Exposed to the world.

Feeling what I haven’t allowed myself to…

No matter, I put on my armor again…

I cannot allow another chink to leave me

Open.

Immortality

leave a comment »

A culling of ice and fire

Searing away the infidel.

The most fearsome only leaving,

Leaving.

A might battle for the reign

Filling the halls with the clang

Of sword and steel ringing,

Ringing.

A final flash of silver,

A trickle of blood wandering

Down a blade of war and dripping,

Dripping.

Alone, a sovereignty made of bone

And flesh twisted a thousand ways

Around a solid vessel of festering,

Festering.

Solidarity has its place in the grand

Schemes of paper princes and barbarians

Fighting their battles and raging,

Raging.

I watch throughout the ages

My brethren all slain by my sin

Soaked hand….with their bleeding,

Bleeding.

So, for eternity, I sleep upon my throne

Of memories and maimed majesties

And will continue on Enduring,

Enduring.

Living Death

leave a comment »

Whirling around

A goddess

Dressed in finery.

She is alabaster

Flesh and ruby

Blood.

Life courses in her

Veins yet she has consorted

with Death.

Spray of blood

Another willing

Victim consumed.

An orgy of blood

and infidel…

sacrificed.

Language and “Dirty” Words

with 3 comments

After passing through a throng of people the other day (not to be confused with a thong of people) and hearing the words George Carlin’s “Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television” multiple times, I had the thought that maybe as a people we are beginning to come further along down the road to believing that words only have as much power as you give them. Personally, I believe this. Ass, shit, and other “dirty” words said have gotten to be almost as commonly accepted as words such as puppy or tea, and honestly, I think that its kind of refreshing.

The reason is because…wait for it….words only have as much power as we as a people allow them to have. I mean seriously if you don’t get offended simply because I refer to my butt or my rear or my sphincter as my ass, the world would be a better place. Just like any other myth out there, the idea that there are certain words that have a negative stigma is also an urban legend….just because I say God damn, doesn’t mean that I’m condemned to a fiery corner of hell to wail and gnash my teeth in for an eternity (besides if you truly think about that saying…only God can condemn or “damn” someone…the person is not “damning” God because really that is just a silly train of thought).

I will admit that I myself did go through a time when “curse” words would never pass my virgin lips because I thought that it was wrong. I even made the argument to another student that since we are logical, thinking creatures shouldn’t we be able to express ourselves intelligently without using them. Now, however, I find myself seeing it a different way. Why should I explain myself out in several sentences that I am unhappy with someone when a quick “Kiss my ass” will do? It so much more concise, and in a world where speed is prized, concision is brilliant.

So, I guess what I’m trying to stress is that you shouldn’t let a few four letter words cause you to go off the handle. If you don’t agree with the usage, I would say just let it roll off because seriously you’re being just as bad as the vegetarian who tries to force people to not eat meat…just live life and be happy with what’s going on…don’t let a few “dirty” words get you down.
