1. It’s easier to write dark than light. It is my gift to bring the dead to life.

2. I will take possession of all I see, love and grief and hope and art.

3. What you have I want. Your peace, sitting quietly with your heart.

4. The Furies, my pets, they howl and tear and spit you out bone by bone.

5. A slow weight, a heavy eye. Time slips through me and is gone.

6. I am so hungry and yet I barely taste. I have cleared the feast and guzzled the wine.

7. Now come here; let me rip the thoughts from your mind.


  1. This is like a gothic version of the anglo-saxon riddles..
    Very good.
    by the way, may I add you to my blog-roll?

  2. Thanks. I hope you added me to your blog-roll.

  3. I did indeed. And from my stats, someone from mine came over here.

  4. You wrote this, I presume. It's good. Sort of like what Zen Tightrope Walking Dude said, although I don't know what anglo-saxon riddles are. I love me some Gothic, though.

  5. I'm sorry. I don't know what possessed me to call zenandtheartoftightropewalking Zen Tightrope Walking Dude. So I'll revise that to just Viv. I saw that that was your name. Again, I'm sorry.
