Words give voice to those forces that underlie and permeate the universe, channelling them through human consciousness. These words are the voice of misery and death... a spell of the mind, the voice of murder...

Hear them for yourself...

How I'd LOVE to hear Ozzy Osbourne attack these words - Ozzy - are you out there, my brother...?


A Spell of Death
 

 
 

Be still my thoughts
 

Lie sleepy mid the graves of empty dreams
 

Hold fast my darkling spirit
 

Spit acid poison into times’ mysterious streams
 

 
 

Freeze the glint of eye and tear
 

Murder every photon piercing night
 

Kill the beating of all hearts
 

Bathe the world in stillborn, rattling fear
 

 
 

Of frozen solitude make all their days anew
 

Distill the gall of death’s unliving spark
 

Wake humankind to blindness and to fear
 

Kill the light with spells all woven of the dark
 

 
 

Sow death among the fields of corn
 

Sow hatred where there once was love
 

In pain shall all repent they’re born
 

As bloodied, from the sky careers God's murdered dove
 

 
 

And every child shall spit into its parents’ eyes
 

And every man a murderer be
 

The darkness of the human heart
 

Shall raise its monument to me
 

 
 

Oh! Spin and whirl great deathly vertigo of hell
 

And thunder silent bells, as life retreats
 

And shadow spirits wonder through all minds
 

Now hush! Your hearts no longer beat.

Very dark and deeply woven with many senses running rampant in each line...The awakening of death and its orders rein in all of its beings....Deep...Very deep Keith..

A bit scary Keith. "and thunder silent bells" the senses all askew. I'm glad I pursue the light rather than the dark. Call me chicken.

This is chillingly penned, effective darkness...t e r r i f y i n g.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Oh my goodness!!!! Is this another Sunday night in Bangor, Keith? Sounds a bit familiar. Sorry - the eyes in your biog pic rather startled me and I thought of nights spent in the dim and distant past behind a few Welsh headstones, lined up so regimentally in your Chapel grounds. And they're HUGE compared to out diddly little English ones. Black humour is begotten by such astoundingly good and sophisticated dark writing. This is not the stuff of ghoulies and ghosties but of a genuine commitment to the Seriously Heavy. Have you linked up with Paul Williams across the Pennines there? You could do Double Dark. Love and Light from Kate xx :))

You stopped mine there for a moment Keith, these lines are suffused with indricate patterns of death hand, brought to light by your delicate touch of imagery E.A.Poe, be brought of you! Are you there? then Blessings! Jasmin Horst
Reviewed by Sheila Roy 11/15/2007
Vivid and dark imagery, creatively done. This is a powerful piece; you have personified death expertly with some amazing lines. Great flow, too!

Sheila
