Hate Stone 04:40
The stone is cold and wet. The magic-men remove the gloves and place their right hands on its surface, their eyes closed as they chant the incantation in unison. And then they each splash blood from their palms onto the sacred pillar and the spell is cast They have sealed their hate into the stone and all of them drop to the ground about it, lifeless. Every living thing that approaches the stone will feel conflict and be driven to violence. Plant will suffocate plant, beast will attack beast, insect will devour insect and man will kill man near this sacred stone

It was in the cold dungeon and surrounded by the holy we were chained to the floor, damp to the bone, breath pressed out by weights piled upon the chest. We were hung from the stone, forced to drink, drowning. We spat out our bile, cursed them. With pure hate, we confessed. We were placed in the line, a procession of ghouls, towards the auto-da-fe. A black sambenito, all serpent and flame. My fate is the fire, bound to the stake. The festival unfolds. I can smell the flesh burning. I can hear the shrieking and the crackle and the roar of the blaze over the moaning and the glee of the crowd. Those screaming men and women ablaze, with necks that would not be throttled; heretics until the end.

We had left a life of merciless death for something we had glimpsed in dreams. A place we could sleep unarmed and fear could be left to the past. We drank away our memories. Fucked and kissed goodbye our scorn. In secrecy and ritual we smashed our swords and buried our names. But those whom we'd left behind needed only to see a face. So they brought this steel upon us. So we let death into our hearts and slew our foes where they stood and left all their corpses in that place _____s more _____ftures, hate sheathed to the waist and death in our hearts where it has always belonged. Amidst blood forever. I knew the sword was hatred and most fierce vengeance is all.

Lost In Fog 09:34
Out among the bracken, the rocks and the dead fog has risen Covered with mud and dew. almost blinded by branches that stab through the cloak This used to be a forest Now it is damp ash, mould, death and bone Lured here by voices carried on winds that batter by howling and singing of drowning and final gasps, The chattering of the dead mesmerises and urges me to fall; to be trapped beneath the cloak. Spoiled in the bog. Breathing moss that fingers and joins one's blood that will flow to this mass womb of lost, drifting, mad shadows.

March through the shade of the weeping boughs. All lament, fist and blade and no shame. This weapon is ready and a curse is at my lips. To cut and howl at all of that creed whom cross my path for the first and the final time. As brave as they may, it is a surge into the maw. I will summon the will of pure, bursting hatred and be blind to the humanity of my snake-like foe. My work will be so, so rough and when I am done, when I hear no more man, strong or riddled with moans, then I will fall to the ground, a husk, completely spent and probably to my grave!
