An assault on the mind is the utmost disgrace. Language flows, shifting, an amorphous creation with no form, no body, only spirit floating through air. I breathe. I suck my life. I taste the world, and I exhale my soul in sound. I defy all those who will abuse language! To twist their souls to twist your soul to twist this world into a hideous shape: A beast, an animal, a monster, a man devoid of his divinity. To say a lie breaks only our contract is a lie breaking our covenant: A spear in the ribs of the Lord. A sword through the neck of the martyr. A thrust in the virgin raped on the altar. And some would choose to wander blindly through the sandstorm of a burning night, tracking, though lost, dusty decaying steps to catch a golden glimpse of the noble idol. While I will regret any drop of poison, any wormwood, ever split my swollen lips. Go to: http://andrewssongs.wordpress.com/ for more of Israfel Sivad’s writings.
