Spirits Sat as Mourners (Frank - Jodah - Moms)

But those holy words are no match for me... the Beast.
I would end this tale
with a venomous wail,
as I allow those creatures who live in the dark
to tear your very soul apart,
as they stare into the solemn face
of the hypocrisy who would try to change your fate.
It is futile to search for light
when you didn't take such care in life.
Now my dear just rest your head.
Regret has no use for the dead.
Take your place upon this dark road that offers no grace
for you have made no grand contribution to the human race
& tho your soul has fed the beast in me
there is no need to take these things personally
for what you've sowed has now been reaped
& this is just a job to me.

      Jo_Goldsmith, It seems that your wonderful comment got lost in the 30+ other 'junk mail' comments and I am sorry for that. I am so happy to read your comment and to hear that you enjoyed the writing.

      I would secretly hope that my writing would be pure fiction and would not remind anyone of anyone else. That is my dreamer side and so far from the truth. I am so happy that you enjoyed it Daniel.

      I liked it--the priest thought he was doing God's will but instead, he was sealing his own fate to that of unison with the beast via his own hypocrisy...it reminds me of own parish priest.

      Gypsies do like to take journeys, don't they. What a pleasure to have you down one of my paths. My paths do so love gypsies. Hope to see you again. Thank you.

      Thank you tobusiness... I do not fear the dark and really think that beasts get a pretty bad rap for doing what they were created to do. So happy you enjoyed it.

      Phylis, it usually does take a lot of time but I found a pretty decent site that shortens it. These sites always have their limitations but this one is not so bad and shortens the process a lot. I can get it for you if you like.

      Honoring the authors was the most important thing to me. :)

      Thanks for the blushing compliments. :)

      They do honor the authors, Moms. I was amazed and know that kind of work is time consuming and takes creative talent. I am impressed.

      Phyllis - Nice to see you. I am glad that you enjoyed it. I rather like to explore a little beast now and again. The images - You noticing them gave me a big kool-aid smile! I think creating those took the longest. I knew if I made them, I wouldn't have to worry about my hub being taken down for repeated content. I do love how they turned out. I feel like they honor their original works and authors.

      What wonderful compliments Faith Reaper. Thank you so much for coming to enjoy it and then leaving such beautiful words. I am taken back by how much I enjoyed the challenge. I have never done one before and only read about it today. I do love Frank and his works. I am sure that had a lot to do with my trying it today, hahaha... biases.

      Much love faith!
