Extreme Nine of Division - Spade -Sword

The Chaotic Infinity:
Vacuous Doom Grieving
Abysmal Damnation Brooding


Darkness - EMPTINESS - Insanity
Desolate - Confusing

The insanity of bats
out of the abyss
of Hell...
on a full moon.


The Ghoul:
Agent of Death and Darkness
... and The Corpse

Devoured by darkness, less the moon
Eerie maw, from emptiness hewn
Pointing to a waiting grave
Insanity is the coming wave


A nugatory necrophore is annihilating
A desolate cadaver is rotting


E 9 of [ / ] Spades - {00000}
The Chaotic Infinity:
-- Vacuous & Bemoaning

Nothing, empty, black and scary
Vacuous, confused and weary
Insanity, dark abyss drawing in
Damnation, no more sin

Vacuous doom bemoaning
Abysmal damnation brooding

COURT - (one half)

The Braindead Zombie
Vacuous abyss, no thought in head
Doom, damnation, bemoan the dead

Hearing the Brain
of an Auditory Mind
and the Thoughts from a
Solitary Circumsphere.
