3 Wednesday vs The Man Cave

In death they shall be denied
Tortured by the crucified
Flesh devoured from their spines
The Great Worm to gluttonize

Sightless and headless the bodies of the gluttonous Dorothy Leigh Sayers screamed "the surrender to sin which began with mutual indulgence leads by an imperceptible degradation to solitary self-indulgence." A warning to all those before her to abandon their hope.  Cerberusas slithers and wallows in the vile slush that oozes out from their bodies.  It indulges in the sensuality that they once fed their souls.  Denying them the existence that fuelled their debauchery and bloated corpses. Allowing the fresh bodies of the deceased to roam freely in his presence.  Tolerating the filth that stains their embodiment for it longs for the obscenity that is their flesh.

Like the skeletons that lurk in the closets of our past lives they cast a long desolate shadow over the achievements that glorified them.  Ungodly in appearance they feed off the vices that we used as a crutch to gain such lofty heights.  Lurking in the mountain of skulls that tower over the third plane of hell a lonely wizard stalks the midnight dreary.  Tapping his staff into the inferno he stokes the tormented fires of hell as his two messengers of death tap at your chamber door.  Clawing and scratching along the frozen tundra that reaches out of the flames of Hades demonic creatures long to caress your skull.  The prophet a thing of evil cast his thamaturgy over the land lifeless landscape while his raven like fiends shriek into the tempest of our dreams.  Filing our dreams with the sorrow of a haunted horror, the three of them sit and stair.  Never flittering as the loneliness is left unbroken.   "My soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!"

  1. The art featured here is by Skinner (www.theartofskinner.com). His work has left a significant impression on my feeble little mind and I now own several pieces of his work and his recent book "every man is my enemy".

  3. Vs The Man is a creative writing process that delves into my Hobby room while exploring the literary work of art. Themes of note are Dante's inferno, Nordic Mythology and Edgar Allen Poe. When all is said and done the war between The Man Cave and the days of the week will have show case where I model/paint my models. Glad you like the banner...I will be talking about the sites new look later on in the week along with the future of The Chaos Manifesto.
