The sound of a dull knife
hacking, hacking, hacking
through a daughter's vertebrae,
her face pressed firmly against the cutting board,
her screams escaping as only yellow butterflies
somebody told her lies

An infant died playing Russian roulet
Ten bottles on the table
five of milk,
four of water
and one of poison
somebody let the noise in

A fisherman's child found my only lover
in a garbage bag cradle, muddy mouth gaping,
vines embracing her moldy wrists
mother nature is an artist
she'll paint your corpse deep black
somebody held me back

somebody held me back.
sleep tight.

Poetry courtesy of my fucked-up nightmares. Oh, fuck. Why. T^T

Thanks! I recently recorded another you may like, titled The Cardiologist. It's a monologue depicting a heart surgeon's descent into madness.

Oh my... It's really beautiful, send shivers down my spine...
It must be rather scary (to say at least) when you dream of this oAo

Lately, yeah. And even though I'm 18 and therefore technically an adult, I still have to cover my feet when it's dark or that Thing That Doesn't Exist will grab them and drag me into the shadows. Oh, shit. It's dark. I'm in my bed. The door is shut. And I'm thinking about it. Guess who's not going to be able to sleep? FFFFFFfffffffffff :fear:

Also, I went to my old abandoned house that's all echoey and recorded it:

Oh believe me, I've been like that since I was seven, and I still am. It's because our fantasy is so lively and because we have a strange love for the macabre c: our 'strenght' can be our weakness XD

Holy shit... <3
