Spirits! Why you like to take refuge within the sugary fetus thrown to the Leviathan from this fabulous black ink sea's shores? Don't get in the domains of those cemeteries. There, the spectres keep a jealous guard over the corpses in which in former ages the fire made to them the offering of passions. Beside, the black out that fell over their memories, needs bodies that times after times vomit the dust from which they are made. They are in a dire situation. The spaces revealed by the sun in the daydreams of the legendary forest—aren't cradle for newborns.
It's useless a tender hope for your three-dimensional's dreams, moreover, isn't blood that runs through those images piled in the mirror's subconscious. What do you feel now that you are next to my coffin while at the same time the emotions given off by the sorrowful wolf's howls, tear you apart? Perhaps you want to take a nap on its melody; with the hope that, once awake, got your physical bodies back. Which ones they might be? What they do? Are they sleepwalkers wandering through streets on which their footsteps get mix with the dogs'? Streets that don't take the trouble to make them stumble. Maybe, they've built up a quicksilver bridge as a way to cross where they could be seen. Surely, those bodies are happy without spirits that make them uneasy.
Spirits! You like to plunge in the asphalt's vapors. But it's useless, because your existences don't take part in any breath of life. The flesh is too busy leading its herd of worms toward the stockade. Spirits! What came over your lives that suddenly made the Limbo the best option. Of course, in there the air is purer. No wonder you fell asleep when arrived to its realm. You enjoyed the oblivion's shelter, but couldn't endure so much harmony and started to miss the hell of your bodies. But they don't remember you, and they won't. They've forgotten you because they too, are in their own limbo... They're the madmen's bodies!

Why don't you try with the cypress' seeds? So you'll have all the time you want without really need it; just like the graves under its shadows. What about the birds of prey or the cactus from deserts made out of stony tears? Try to feel the pleasure of a whole sea of poison while swimming within a snake's body. Make the pilgrimage through the cannibals' intestines. Fly with bat's wings till the peaks of the male goats' horns. Wait at the end of all religious war through the mankind history. Become the straw in the eye drawn by a blind man. Interrupt the conversations of the heroes' statues. Don't cool too much the air in the room of the dying, you won't do nothing there; only become the victims of even cooler prayers. In any case, you won't convince the new consecrated corpses.
Get exile in the solitary parks, there you'll be heated by the vagabonds' blasphemies. Become a huge wave and flood the bodies of those who escaped from prison hidden behind the moon eclipse; or maybe you want to dwell in the branches that never have been trimmed by the hurricane; engage yourselves in a ceaseless search in the places that give off solitude. Scan every corner of the nature, and don't forget the secrets that she doesn't dare to reveal even in the tiniest flower... Never give up!
You know very well that the physical lives worn out quickly compare with your sighs. Oh yes! Get lost in an infinite quest. But please, don't take refuge within my sugary fetus; for the Leviathan's hunger disappear when behind the woolly light of its favorite tidbit, are hidden dark spirits exhausted by the quest of their physical bodies; bodies that already have started the path of decay, still alive; wandering through the map of a new nightmare.

About Me

My photo
Odilius Vlak, is the pseudonym of a guy whose real name is Juan Julio Ovando Pujols. He was born and still lives in Dominican Republic. The pen name turned out to be his spiritual name, because it was chosen by his soul, and not by two pieces of rotten flesh, namely, his parents. As a writer he likes to explore the dark aspect of the imagination and place the result in the light's showcase with a fantastic attire. So far, his main way of expression is the prose poem. Some may be very lyric; others, very narrative. But, all of them being a kind of philosophic declaration of why the Dark Fantasy should be loved. He has two unpublished books, of which several samples will be show in this virtual temple: Plexus Lunaris and Bottonless Tombs. Currently he's writing the first story of the book "Chronicles of Tandrel". It will be a universe builded in the same way that "Zothique the Last Continent", by Clark Ashton Smith; that is, showing the whole feature of it, through a series of tales. He also run a Blog in spanish devoted in part to the sacred figure of Clark Ashton smith: the «High Priest» of the Dark Fantasy.
