“I slaughtered the pigs in my mind and castrated myself before I could touch her….I fell from the cloud I was to embrace…filthy, tattered and worn…speaking only Latin to the bottles in my hand…I follow the path now that scars and forges stigmata’s for the unborn and wilted…I will never bloom, I will never say you’re mine as I do not know where I end or begin, forget my desire and walk from the catastrophe of truth….”—"Erik Truchinski" (via erik-truchinski)
“They rage against mankind,
They spill human blood like rain,
Devouring the flesh of man, and emptying his veins of blood,
Ceaselessly quaffing hot human gore.”—Montague Summers, Witchcraft and Black Magic
“There shall not be found among you… an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord.”—Deuteronomy xviii, 10-12
“Seven are they! Seven are they!
In the ocean deep, seven are they!
Battering in heaven, seven are they!
Bred in the depths of the ocean ;
Not male nor female are they,
But are as the roaming wind-blast.
No wife have they, no son can they beget ;
Knowing neither mercy nor pity,
They hearken not to player, to prayer.
They are as horses reared amid the hills,
The Evil Ones of Ea ;
Throne-bearers to the gods are they,
They stand in the highway to befoul the path ;
Evil are they, evil are they!
Seven are they, seven are they,
Twice seven are they!”— Lewis Spence, Myths and Legends of Babylonia and Assyria
