My lawyer died unexpectedly a few days ago. To most people, this probably wouldn't be a big deal. But for me... he was a savior.

The time is now! Amazing writing by S.K. Nicholas.
In my left hand, there’s a lump of clay. In my right, a cigarette. The days are godless as they are sexless. There are those that worship science.

to love the suicide girl
pierced with silver

the wolves who worry her door?
Can your words drown out
their mournful howls
calling out to her feral heart?
Are you ready for the demons
who come with black roses
during long dark nights of her soul
whispering their ugly lies
poking her deepest fears with their dirty nails
wooing her to the razor sharp edge?
Or are you just another would-be lover
who tasted death on her tongue
the blood in her tears
