I personally have this huge fascination with Halloween. In fact! it means more to me than Christmas. Christmas? is all fluff and foo foo and it's just unappealing in every which way. Who the hell cares about that fat jolly bastard dressed up and a red suit with his fat gut hanging out, his red nose which is clear signs he's an alcoholic and a repelling laugh that just gets on your every nerve! I need to be royally high just to bear it for fawk sake. Fawk NO!
For me it's the demon, the witches, the ghosts, the vamps, the zombies and the ghouls. The stories, the movies, the lore and everything Halloween holds most dear to my heart. It's MORBID and it's DEATH which I find fascinating to my very chore. Basically? It's that one time of year that I fit right in. Why? Cause I'm the most morbid fawk around. I bet y'all didn't even know I have a Ouija board that I keep... hidden under my bed! Told yeah: M.O.R.B.I.D with a capital M. That house on the pic is even my dream house. Not typical a like, but fawk if I love it!
I've posted a tidy little poem by Poe just to celebrate the up coming event.
The Haunted Palace
In the greenest of our valleys
By good angels tenanted,
Once a fair and stately palace—
Radiant palace—reared its head.
In the monarch Thought’s dominion,
It stood there!
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so fair!
Banners yellow, glorious, golden,
On its roof did float and flow
(This—all this—was in the olden
Time long ago)
And every gentle air that dallied,
In that sweet day,
Along the ramparts plumed and pallid,
A wingèd odor went away.
Wanderers in that happy valley,
Through two luminous windows, saw
Spirits moving musically
To a lute’s well-tunèd law,
Round about a throne where, sitting,
In state his glory well befitting,
The ruler of the realm was seen.
And all with pearl and ruby glowing
Was the fair palace door,
Through which came flowing, flowing, flowing
And sparkling evermore,
A troop of Echoes, whose sweet duty
Was but to sing,
In voices of surpassing beauty,
The wit and wisdom of their king.
But evil things, in robes of sorrow,
Assailed the monarch’s high estate;
(Ah, let us mourn!—for never morrow
Shall dawn upon him, desolate!)
And round about his home the glory
That blushed and bloomed
Is but a dim-remembered story
Of the old time entombed.
And travellers, now, within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows see
Vast forms that move fantastically
To a discordant melody;
While, like a ghastly rapid river,
Through the pale door
A hideous throng rush out forever,
And laugh—but smile no more.
