‚ÄúO VENENO ARDENTE DO DESGOSTO. THE WHITE HOT POISON OF ANGER.

When oth¬≠ers make us angry at them- at their shame¬≠less¬≠ness, injus¬≠tice, incon¬≠sid¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion- then they exer¬≠cise pow¬≠er over us, they pro¬≠lif¬≠er¬≠ate and gnaw at our soul, then anger is like a white-hot poi¬≠son that cor¬≠rodes all mild, noble and bal¬≠anced feel¬≠ings and robs us of sleep. Sleep¬≠less, we turn on the light and are angry at the anger that has lodged like a suc¬≠cubus who sucks us dry and debil¬≠i¬≠tates us. We are not only furi¬≠ous at the dam¬≠age, but also that it devel¬≠ops in us all by itself, for while we sit on the edge of the bed with aching tem¬≠ples, the dis¬≠tant cat¬≠a¬≠lyst remains untouched by the cor¬≠ro¬≠sive force of the anger that eats at us. On the emp¬≠ty inter¬≠nal stage bathed in the harsh light of mute rage, we per¬≠form all by our¬≠selves a dra¬≠ma with shad¬≠ow fig¬≠ures and shad¬≠ow words we hurl against ene¬≠mies in help¬≠less rage we feel as icy blaz¬≠ing fire in our bow¬≠els. And the greater our despair that is only a shad¬≠ow play and not a real dis¬≠cus¬≠sion with the pos¬≠si¬≠bil¬≠i¬≠ty of hurt¬≠ing the oth¬≠er and pro¬≠duc¬≠ing a bal¬≠ance of suf¬≠fer¬≠ing, the wilder the poi¬≠so¬≠nous shad¬≠ows dance and haunt us even in the dark¬≠est cat¬≠a¬≠combs of our dreams. (We will turn the tables, we think grim¬≠ly, and all night long forge words that will pro¬≠duce in the oth¬≠er the effect of a fire bomb so that now he will be the one with the flames of indig¬≠na¬≠tion rag¬≠ing inside while we, soothed by schaden¬≠freude, will drink our cof¬≠fee in cheer¬≠ful calm.)

‚Äē Pas¬≠cal Merci¬≠er, Night Train to Lisbon

inexpressible
thought lives matter (so do writing lives for that matter)

an expression of the inexpressible. comprised of:

55% sketch-journal: sketches, paintings, artwork, doodles, doggerel, journal entries, and other bits of me.

45% personal blog: now it's personal, before it was just business. not really. this isn't a monetized blog, it never will be. don't need google adsense and clickbait running the show. not looking to sell you something either. all product endorsements are from yours truly. if I mention some vitamins I ingest on the daily, foods I eat, booze I be drinking it's all part of my own existence.

other than that, the usual: listicles, words of the day, imagery, pretentious quotes, you name it I'll have it up.

25% eratta: writings, my not so still life (photos), and what have you.

offensiveness rating of this here blog is well done to medium rare. guaranteed to cause communist snowflakes emotional meltdowns.
