Casting Shadows…

Don’t be angry when his heart wanders Don’t sit in the house and try to ponder You never quite understand – here’s why No matter your reach it’s still too high. The truth is that I cast a long shadow. Across the days and nights from sunrise to sunset Devotion is something that a heart […]

You Eclipse Me

The Sun is in love with the Moon. How on Earth could such a thing be true? The Sun is fieriest passion ignited in the radiance Of the Words of Creation in perpetual motion. But the Moon is but a watcher, timing the tides. Should one so magnificent to be near is to die in […]

Strange Fruit –

Walking through the dark woods one night I see Strange Fruit Swinging black as the night from a white oak tree Strange Fruit hanging And I gaze up and ask what crime was committed Strange Fruit hanging down Or was there none but what was made fitted Strange Fruit hanging down from  What little excuse  […]

My love, It was always you You haunt my dreams and my reality. Since I was a girl I have longed for you For your kisses and your gentle caresses. Even your bites are like sweet poison in my veins I delight in the pain because it comes from you. I have loved you all […]

Heroin in Her Tears – By Sydney Knox

Ella was twenty-seven when it happened. She had long been fascinated by the deep end of the lake – the very middle to be exact – since she was a child. The lake was just an old stone quarry, long abandoned by the town that grew up around it. The lake was her favorite place.  […]

The Men of the 10th Legion

Caesar’s 10th…. Without question, Julius Caesar was one of the bloodiest, yet most prolific military leaders this world has ever known. You don’t get that title without good, loyal men around you and the charisma and intelligence to keep them that way. We can marvel at Caesar’s accomplishments – his Gallic campaigns are studied until […]

Scandals In Rome

Caesar’s Girlfriend Got him Killed… Rome Cat Sanctuary under Threat It’s rather ironic that the place where Julius Caesar met his end is now a cat sanctuary tucked away into a nondescript corner of the city. All around the ruins of temples and overgrown weeds, trams and cars whizz past oblivious to the fact that […]

Vestal Virgins

Chastity carried a high price…. First – a quick history lesson to set the scene. Vesta was the Goddess of the hearth and home. By design she was also a virgin and her priestesses had to be virgins as well. The genius or spirit of the goddess was symbolized by the eternal fire kept in […]
