She came forth--from a Fairy-Tale--
with lips as red as Blood--
an' Eyes as green as Malachite--
Her Skin an' Spirit  Pale--
Birthed by some uncanny God--
as Darkness birthed all Light.

Around her, all the Witches Dance--
an' work their Mysteries--
While Daemons yet undreamed Of--
embrace in black Romance--
And still, Her tender heart Perceives--
their wretchedness in Love--

Her beauty eludes Label--
Her essence, Undefined--
For She knows not what she Is--
Or of what She is Able--
Her Nameless Art, Her Sacred Mind--
Her Inviolate Song, in Bliss.
Her Nameless Art
A poem about :iconmothermoonsayshello:, my best friend in the world.

May revise later. The last verse still urks me.

I don't even know what to say, here.

This is clearly a hate crime--and an incredibly violent one, at that--yet news coverage is minimal at best, and the Pagan community(which I thought would be up-in-arms, if no one else)has scarcely paused to blink. 

I mean, fuck. It's shitty enough that everyone ignores the American-inspired child witch hunts going on in Africa right now, and the government-sanctioned ones in Saudi Arabia--but this happened in fucking Oklahoma. Right under our fucking noses.

And nobody seems to give a shit.

Just in case anyone thought that people couldn't get any dumber.

To celebrate the new year, I am deleting everything in my gallery spare one or two sentimental works. 

I will be slowly updating with new art and writing, so please bear with me.

That is all.

You seem to know your way around the inexplicable, so can I ask you a question about something that's been happening to me?

Thanks! 

OK, so just as background, I haven't had any previous occurrences and my family does not have a history of gifts (is that the right word?).

Since last month, certain places have given me an illogical instinctive response that didn't happen before.  It is like my gut instinct is screaming for me to get out.  The feeling doesn't stop until I cross a certain "boundary" which often doesn't correspond with the walls of the room.  Once I'm out of the boundary, the feeling goes away completely and I can look at the room without any anxiety.

I've been in these rooms (one of them is the downstairs bathroom) dozens of times before, and it is getting to be a real inconvenience.  Nothing new has happened in the neighborhood and no one has recently died or been seriously injured.

Does this sound familiar and should I be doing anything about it?  I'm not sure I want to get rid the the feelings, as they seem like a useful danger alert system, but is there any way to understand why they are happening or what they are warning about?

Sorry about the text block.

I get similar impulses all the time, though that's more of a lifelong thing for me...hm.

Is there anything new in your life at all? Anything troubling you? Or, conversely, has anything great happened?
