That the barriers of time
In death
Be abolished
And all great minds meet each other.

An unbeliever's hope.
Not for my sake,
But for my kind's legacy.
A Prayer for Christopher Lee
I am not religious and have never believed in an afterlife, but recently I have found myself hoping for one. Not because I fear death myself, but because it saddens me immensely to think that nothing remains of the greats of the past.

I was already thinking this before Thursday's sad news. That was the final push that made me put this thought down in poetry. It's far from being just about Christopher Lee, but it's about him as well.

If I ever publish this elsewhere I might change the title.
I don't really know why I bother writing this since about three people will read it, but anyway...

I just realised it's been over a year since I posted anything. I have a small handful of poems I've written since, none of them I consider particularly worth submitting.

I can tell myself that I've been artistically sterile because my life has been a rollercoaster through mind-hell for the past two years and something. I can tell myself that until my tongue drops out, but the fact remains that I don't think I'll be producing much without encouragement. Be it poetry, short stories, photomanips or whatever else. God, my gallery is like a bad study in ecleticism.

(Thank you for actually reading this)
I'm not writing this journal to whine about my life and artistic crisis. I just want to ask you, you lovely person who's reading this, to write an honest comment underneath about why you're watching me and if you'd like me to carry on doing whatever it is you like about my old stuff.
You like my poetry? Say so.
You like my old photomanips? Say so.
You have no idea how this ended up in you inbox and/or what's in my gallery? Say so anyway.
You get the gist. I just want to know if it's worth trying to be active again or not. I would do a poll but I can't because I'm a peasant. Don't be nice to avoid hurting my feelings. Because if I'll think you guys like my stuff but then nobody looks at it it'll be much worse. I'm quite resigned to the worst anyway, and it's alright. I'll just concentrate on my novel and save up my poetry for unlikely real-life publication.

Be honest, not nice.

I'll shut up now, comment!

Hi, thank you!

Oh, that's just an old thing I came up when I was 15 or so, about the fact that I liked "dark" stuff but in real life I was as shy and non-transgressive as a lamb. It's old and silly but I can't be bothered to change it. I still find the "black angel" concept cool though.
