The Poison Garden…

the poison garden 3Welcome to The Poison Garden! The Alnwick Garden was established in 2005 by the Duchess of Northumberland. This uniquely creepy garden contains over 100 deadly and hallucinogenic plants, enough to put this Wit over the gruesome edge…

I wondered why so many gardens around the world focused on the healing power of plants rather than their ability to kill…I felt that most children I know would be more interested in hearing how a plant killed, how long it would take you to die if you ate it and how gruesome and painful the death might be.”

As I prepared to give myself to my eternal night…

wedding night

Wedding Night

The dark night softly calls to me and beckons me to bed
With promises like sand grains tinkling through an hourglass
And whispers of sweet nothing upon which to rest my head;
A pillow of oblivion beneath the even grass.

As dusk had drawn its velvet curtain on the world’s unrest
The veil over my eyes was lifted; darkness shone like light
And then a lifetime’s longing rose from deep within my breast
As I prepared to give myself to my eternal night.

How soothing and seductive, these caresses formed of bliss;
The life that once entranced is ravished now by Death’s allure,
For he has breathed into my bosom  with his endless kiss
A shadow of that consummation I cannot abjure.

No more is time my enemy; I’ve put away all pride;
Hence even hope has flown, with all the burden of my cares-
And now with pure abandon will my soul, that joyous bride
Embraced by her Beloved, shed this garment that she wears.

Addiction

by Christopher Courtley

She stalks the shadows of my mind
And the dreams she leaves behind
Taunt me with her memory
Haunting nightmarish ecstasy.

A sickly lust, a prick of fear–
The night descends and brings her here
Naked and untouched by man
A moon-white virgin courtesan.

She is all and I am hers
Abject slave to a heart that stirs
For no one–so I nightly sit
In paradises counterfeit.

Loving her is poisoned bliss
Her kiss is death and still I kiss;
So banish sun and harsh daylight
And come sweet angel of the night–

Come upon the moonlight’s streaming
Come and light my darkest dreaming
Come and fill my veins with pleasure–
All I want, and all I treasure.

And so I’m wrapping up the 13 Days of Halloween series. Hope you’ve enjoyed some of my haunted posts, got a chill or two, and ultimately feel inspired for the day of scares and tricks and treats of Halloween tomorrow. So I leave you today with one last cemetery image that I love. The color work I think is so pretty…with the haunted vibe of death and resting souls.
