Eye for an Eye

Eye for an eye … I attacked an innocent branch with my face, it returned with a defense in the form of a stabbing in my left eye. Leaves and bark scattered, but the eye suddenly went blind. It will pass, but I can’t strain it too much.

On the other hand, I will have a longer time to enjoy the beautiful prose of Maja Lidia Kossakowska.

Anyway, I stare with one eye, like a stereotypical pirate. The only thing missing is a wooden leg, a parrot and a hook …


I feel suddenly an odd urge to look at all those beautiful images of alluring, red-haired Sauron in all his dashing glory. Bonus, if there is a not less glorious shadow of Morgoth behind him.

Or this is not odd at all.


This parasite never stops eating my flesh, drilling in my brain. One day I think I forgot about its existence, the second, it hurts me even more, reminding me that it will accompany me to the rest of my life.

“Depression is really a nasty beast” said my friend today.

“Worthy to have as a trophy” I replied. It’s hard to hunt this worming presence, though. Not impossible… yet harder every year.

But I have so many trophies on my wall.

I must believe.

Night of Heat

And how to exist here? The vampire cooks in a forest sauce mixed with mushrooms. 36 of burning Celsius degrees, the sun peels the skin like a red-hot iron glove.

Is this a medieval torture? No, it’s summer in my beloved town. And I, cold-blooded, snow-loving beast¬† (true daughter of the north) and worshipper of the rusty colors of autumn, curse what the world stands on. My feline familiar does long cat and chills the belly on tiles, dog doesn’t even ask for a walk (amazing thing).

And I… I drink lemonade after lemonade and pray to all pagan gods for a storm.

The probability that the storm will come to my town, which her brothers and sisters avoid at all costs, is somewhere like… 20 percent. I still have some hope…

Even my vampiric urge to drink blood ceased, after realising that blood is actually very sticky and mineral water is much more refreshing.

Curse the sun.
