Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story watching, expecting, bullying demanding rituals are performed in its honour. But nothing that occurs in the day really touches you anymore nor ever will again because the legacy of loss never leaves nor ever will again. You watch the light start to die and there's relief at its passing, a candle lit to encourage darkness in and hurry light out. Then blessed night rolls in slowly like an incoming tide soothing, comforting, engulfing. Affairs of the light seem distant now no longer important deserve no special attention, so you pour a drink a vodka and darkness on the rocks which merges with valium to celebrate the death of the day. Best part of the day is night that's when the bastard light grows dim let's oblivion begin. TIME HEALS NOTHING Time heals everything so the saying goes, yeah so it does in about a thousand years given the wounds I'm carrying now and the wounds I know will come. Time heals nothing in this life, pain recedes like an ebbing tide, there's a brief respite then pain flows back. Wounds appear to have healed but it's only superficial – the merest memory scratch and they're open once again. Time heals nothing in this life, you just become less than you used to be, dead where you used to be alive. You still feel but the pain filters everything and so very little of real substance touches you. Pain has changed you forever and you'll never be you again. So be warned - time heals nothing in this life. Nothing. GOD'S SUICIDE Imagine if God took a long hard look at us all again and was disgusted with what He saw. The wars the torture the starvation the greed the poverty. Imagine if He decided, ‘That's it, I'm tired of it all, I've had enough.' Then quietly committed suicide. SWIMMING WITH PAEDOPHILES Some people like to swim with dolphins, the braver ones like to swim with sharks but I'd like to swim with paedophiles. I'd take them out in my boat to a quiet, calm part of the ocean, tie their hands behind their backs, strap on their oxygen tanks, then tip them over the side of the boat. I'd swim down with them to fifty feet then wrap anchor chains round their ankles, rip off their oxygen tanks and watch as the sick fucks disappear into the deep. NEVER BEEN ALIVE The Doctor said to me, “It's bad news I'm afraid. The cancer is worse than we thought. You're going to die soon.” I looked at him and said, “But Doctor, how can I die soon when I've never been alive in the first place?” LET'S PRETEND I'M THE DEVIL Let's pretend I'm the Devil and I tortured you six days a week like your God does, would you worship me on the seventh? Let's pretend I'm the Devil and I allowed some psycho to kidnap and murder your five year old daughter as your God has done, would you worship me on the seventh? Let's pretend I'm the Devil and I stood by and watched as your home and everything you've worked for disappeared in a fire or flood as your God has done, would you worship me on the seventh? The horrors he inflicts on you are endless. I'm sure many examples easily spring to mind so why worship him on the seventh? He demands so much yet the only explanation offered is some 2000 year old story about his son being crucified then some vague rambling in a book that still causes doubts. And hey check that one out, if he allowed his only son to be crucified, what chance does a nonentity like you have of his mercy? Actually I am the Devil and I'm coming over to visit you in your home, I'm going to torture you six days a week like your God does, let's see if you worship me on the seventh. FROZEN LAUGHTER There are a hundred tons of frozen laughter locked up inside me, trapped like tons of ice at the north and south poles and it will take more than just a few rays of sunshine to unfreeze it all in this lifetime. EVERY NIGHT Every night I drift off to sleep hoping that I'll wake up sane. Unfortunately every morning I wake up and am disappointed yet again. CHECK THE DISTANCE Check the distance from yourself from the man you thought you'd be. Check the way all roads departed from the ones that led you here. Check the dreams that lie behind you on dead-end tracks that beckoned clear. Check what's left what's left inside you fragments now remaining here. Check the road that lies before you grows emptier each passing year. No choices left no ‘Dreams This Way' signs narrow road till this life ends, you realise with grim foreboding you're headed now where karma sends. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT MYSELF I decided to make a list of all the things I like about myself these days, taking into account my looks, personality, good points, achievements, and status. So here's the list : GOD HAS BEEN SACKED In an amazing turn of events today and in view of all the recent tornadoes, floods famines and wars, God has been sacked as Ruler of Earth. Looking at God's record over several million years and taking into account such things as the fate of the dinosaurs, the extinction of other species, the dangerously unstable state of the planet, all engineered by God and also what mankind has suffered from day one, the Inner Council of Heaven has decided that God should step down. He's received plenty of warnings in the past but none have had any effect. Lucifer has been appointed as the new Ruler of Earth. After all how much worse can he make it? FROM DAHMER I will take you home. I will snuff you out. I will eat your flesh. I will steal your soul. You are mine forever. You will never leave me. I am Dahmer. MESSAGE TO FAT BASTARDS I have a message for all you obscene fat bastards out there. When the new laws come into force, you're all goin on a special diet. It goes like this : there are no calories in a fuckin bullet. You're all getting one each. Just for the hell of it, you'll be shot thru the mouth. Exceptional cases will be given a gastric band.... tightened slowly round the neck. I WILL TEACH YOU EVIL You serial killers you eaters of flesh you slayers of souls you amateurs. You Stalins you Hitlers you Saddams you beginners. I approve of your work so far but you still have so much more to learn. Come to me to Lucifer come to me and I will really teach you Evil. THERE IS A LIGHT I have been stumbling through this dark tunnel a long time now. It's cold it's dark it's empty. Feels like I've been here forever. Suddenly I see a pinprick of light away in the distance. My heart lifts my hope lifts at last there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I stumble on encouraged, as the light slowly gets stronger. I smile then see it's the headlight of an oncoming train. Tweet
