What Words Can Conquer Death?

An Aspergian's Chemical Romance

burning-tree

My rugged boots stop still in the mud

and the blazing fire catches my eye

I see a man hanging by his foot from a rope

“This is nothing to pass by”

I see five more men

One bound like the Christ, two tied together, and one on either side

of this cross.

I drop to the blood soaked ground, heart rended

at the sight of such immobilizing loss

They are motionless, long gone

from family, from familiarity

of light and darkness

Now they only know silence’s song

I cry out in bitter grief,

because in me they had belief

I’m supposed to put an end to their misery

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
