this is a forbidden love
a sinister love
a cold, cruel, beautiful love
a love that worships with knives
a love that demands sacrifice
a love that covets
a love that crafts
a love that hunts
a love that hurts
an unwilling love
an unwanted love
an unthinkable love
a love that forgives
and twists the blade
a love that mourns
and revels in blood
a love with no name
a love with no rules
a love with no place
but the cell, the basement, the casket

roses are red
Daren’s disdain is black
perhaps we should go now
I don’t need a knife in my back

[ My favorite webcomic artist, Kathleen Jacques, held a Kickstarter last year to fund publishing her webcomic Band vs Band as a book (IT’S SO GOOD AND CUTE AND QUEER GO READ IT). One of the Kickstarter levels was a custom picture, which I snapped up. I based the picture on this semi-roleplay where my girlfriend and I talked about how incredibly uncomfortable it would be to have dinner with my characters Tanim and Daren. I think the resulting picture captures the awkwardness perfectly. Happy Valentines Day! ]

“Prayer for Fallen Felines”

Mother Cat, watch over your fallen child
and guide their spirit to the Eternal Land
may they hunt in fields of moonlight
and sleep in fields of sunlight

[ I’m quickly beginning to realize that a lot of my offerings to Bast are going to take the form of writing, which is no surprise. I’m sure there are already prayers/incantations out there for the spirits of fallen cats, but I wanted to write her one myself so it’s more personal when I use it – though anyone is welcome to use it, of course. ]
