The monster within….

We hear you walking the night-time stairs, that slight rustle of cloth on air, your fingertips on banister rails, opening doors and going where others would not, where things go missing after the setting sun…chemicals coursing through your veins, numbing your heart to what shouldn’t be…ink in your skin, rose in your hair, and a sheen on your lips that guard the abyss where you hide your cloven tongue…who are you behind those sparking eyes and pretty smile…do we know the real You?

Found on the side of a State Street tattoo establishment south of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

  3. The darkness in our lives and in our souls seem to be growing in this year the Mayans call the last of their long calendar count. Beware of the Solar Galactic Alignment on December 21, 2012.

    • I don’t know if there’s really much difference between this and previous years…and I’m hoping the Mayans just ran out of stone for their calendar. 🙂

  4. This is intriguing to me. The statement, the picture and the dot on the forehead!

    • Oh, Pattu, my friend…I didn’t even notice the dot on the lady’s forehead…I don’t think it is a bindi, though. And if it is, I can’t imagine that it has anything to do with the two sides of the person that are depicted in the picture…. I am so sorry if it offends. My writing and title certainly have no relationship to the dot. Goodness….
