Blood Echo.

You mistake my pulse,

For a knock on the door.

Leaky Encroach.

You’re not telling me who I am,

You’re not telling me who I could be,

You’re not showing me a world I don’t already see

You’re not who I imagine when I see a leader in front of me;

No, honey,

You’re late.

I don’t endorse smoking. But if that’s your thing, don’t mind me.

Relish Hellish Greenish Tinge

I won’t lie and claim to know what hell is like

But, If I was to hazard a guess? I would have to say:

Marrying a narcissist may quite literally be the easiest way

To gain a decent amount of perspective.

A Reality Bend.

Roses Past The Deep End.


I’ve made many, many mistakes.

And I’ll continue to.

But through each one, I’ve come to learn a great deal;

Resist the temptation to leer at my pitfalls

You might just see something.

Cusp Of Ruination.

Fumbling in the dark

Yet, when I look within

All I see, is my soul.

Burning, like the rising sun.

The Else-world Inclination.


*Scribbles* “Okay, Okay Last question — I swear”

“Somehow, I doubt that”

*Ahem* “I’ve been observing everything for a while now.

Tell me, does life for you humans ever get any easier?”

“I don’t know. But if it does, do let me know”

“Yikes. I don’t think I could last a day. How do you cope with all the madness?”

“I mean, you’re ‘here’ aren’t you…”

Anyone else remember the Ridiculousiology series? No? I surely do. Had decided to end it at part 4 but then snatti89 added more art with the charming penguin and I felt compelled to add the final, “Final” part to the series.

No promises, who knows how many more final parts I’ll think of adding to this. On the plus side, it will be consistent with the theme of the entire series.

It’s A Voice, Not An Echo.

I’ve roamed the halls of my mind alone

Long enough to hear a welcome stillness.

A quietness, birthed entirely by the muzzling of lost voices,

All listless whispers deep within my head unequivocally dead;

No other lingering tones,

Apart from one that still chooses to call it home

… My own.

Broken Keys And Missing Dial-tones.

“No. I wouldn’t dream of going ahead with it.

… Can’t bear the thought of leaving you alone.

You know that — right boy?”
