my goodness ..... this is an explosive outpouring of emotion. i can see why you have been called the goddess of darkness. the words are powerful on their own, but the fact that you have illustrated them with the image 'asteroid-hits-earth' suggests that there is a great deal more suppressed energy still firing away, molten magma like, under the surface, ready to be blown asunder at any moment . and gurgling within that boiling rock, yet to erupt, are ( or at least there appears to be ) many unresolved issues.
so mother of wormwood ..... sprung up in the track of that serpent as it left the garden of paradise, i can see why it is often used in making vengeance. you battle for your children, perhaps like Bellona the Ancient Roman war goddess that drank wormwood and was crowned with snakes. they say its flowers can help those on journeys esp when they involve magical paths ! but yes, you are of course correct, pure wormwood oil is lethal. i guess the skill is knowing just how much you can take. to cure you or kill you ........ i read your previous piece Guilt (for Gnu) your son Gary, and i for one would never believe or even consider that you were anything other than a very caring mother. most important of all (in my opinion) is that you never deny your children and you are continually showing the world that you are proud of them.
OMG, you are a goddess of darkness, this is a vivid portrait of emotion in words... it creates it's own reds and smoke-greys in the way you paint with the words. Excellent, I very much enjoyed reading!
wow............this ones pretty hard hitting to say the least. this could be taken several ways.........not even going to go into that cuz i have no clue. perfect wording and infinitely intriguing................hmm.....maybe a fav. not sure. sorry i don't have many more words or nothing constructive. very sharp colors.
