I can't tell if this is good or not.
...And no, I'm not a Satanist.

Satan's Cross

Paint your hands on Satan's cross;
red nails with frozen tips.
Morning air is flammable
like butane on my lips.
Wrap your thorns around my hips
and motivate the sin
to rise before summer's light
learns how to singe the skin.

Paint your feet on Satan's shoes
with concrete heels and toes.
Tell the world to follow you
and watch the gruesome shows.
As the putrid morning glows,
your eyes, deep and perverse,
signal them from innocence
and off to join that hearse.

  I love this. No, you aren't a satanist... and this piece holds a brilliant way to illustrate the way we give into sin and temptation even when we know that the outcomes of it have a high potential for cumbustion. Very well done.

  to me this means something. it reminds me of how i can sometimes paint a picture of myself and warp all truths in a bizarrely human way. i become like the character of satan.

  It has been forever since I've gotten around to reading anything lately on this site! I've missed reading your stuff, cause it's soooo brilliant! This was a really awesome one, too - I especially loved:

"Morning air is flammable
like butane on my lips."

Okay, I'm off to catch up on more of your stuff!

  I really love the way that you write,
It's almost like "Morbid Beuity" and I have to tell you putting those two words together is not an easy feat. I would love to see the world through your eyes for a day, you see a lot of references about God in poetry ( I'm Guilty) because it is easy to fit him into fantasy and feeling, but all of the poems that I have read about Saten are written by hateful youth and are usually about killing of some sort, you almost danced a ballet with him, Kudos,

  way neat! it's a bit different from your usual writes i thinks
i had to read it like four times over to understand this one part:
"Wrap your thorns around my hips
and motivate the sin
to rise before summer's light
learns how to singe the skin"
because the "...summer's light learns..." part confused me ^_^
i actually completely failed to connect this piece to Satanism at all
i just thought it was a twist on what you normally write about. nevertheless, it is an amazing piece with abstract descriptions as usual!
you amaze my mind ;)

  You know you are absolutely fascinating, i dont know how you do it, where do you get the muse to put a piece like this together. You are a scientific wonder you know.

  This is good
I mean really really good
You showed that Satanists are people who only think of themselves and are eager to bring down someone else into the Negative world they have created with their own mind
I Love the way you put this together
I respectively disagree with Dismentled
Satanists nust certainly are EVIL
they live in the Negative and are so Happy with their Negatives self that the only way they know how to put the Positive Energy that is hidden in their soul into full effect is by bringing their negativity on to others selfishly
Excellent Write
I Loved this
It definately speaks TRUTH
God Bless

  that is so sweet and romantic. KInda like a love-story! Oh, and for the record Satanists are NOT evil! Satanists don't even believe in satan, they only use his image for what it serves;as self-gratification, selfishness, living not in shame; things of that sort. It's the "Satan worshipers" you've to watch out for. The funny thing is, that Satan worshipers are actaully christians, by technicallity! Christian: An individual who believes that Jesus Christ was/is the son of god" By deffinition(and yes my demented self actaully got into an arguement with a preacher over this, he copped out, pusssy was afraid of losing!) Anyways, this in a way is kinda sweet, bitter-romantic. You know what they say though "dance with the devil; the devil don't change, you do!" Wondering I somehow inspire this? I vaguely remember a write the other day about "hanging me from a black cross"? peace sweet thing!

  Morning air is flammable

awsome thought

  I liked it. There was a contrast between the two stanzas, the first being personal to the reader like
"Paint your hands
your thorns"
It had a carnival of horror feel to me in the second stanza which became less personal and chaotic
"Tell the world to follow you
and watch the gruesome shows."
Or maybe not now that I read over it again..
What the [censored] am I on about?

I'll be honest, I can't write. I'm really hungover
Good job though, honestly
