22gigantes.com - Everyone harbors a secret, a desire—or desires—too terrible to reveal. The secrets push up from beneath like poisoned flowers, and only art can free their perfume. The alchemical work of the poet transforms the bitter into the sweet and shows how slim is the gap between madness and consensual reality.With Skeleton Kiss, dark fiction author and music journalist Alex S. Johnson challenges his readers to go on a journey with him. A journey through the darkness into the light and back again. A taste of the horrors of love and the love of horror. In the tradition of such poets as Charles Baudelaire and Oscar Wilde, he doesn't skirt the abyss, but boldly gazes within and shares what he finds. Its title drawn from a song by goth legends Christian Death, Skeleton Kiss revives the scent of decomposing violets, the glory of the 19th Century Decadent movement, the thrilling place where sin meets the sacred and holiness the forbidden.

By tenebraerick Poetry is an art that is hard to describe. It is a form of writing unlike any other form of literature, be it fiction or non-fiction. Poetry does not just tell a tale or bring to mind a vision of things or events that a novel or novella has offered time and again. Poetry gives snapshots of the psyche of the person who chooses that medium to impart an experience unlike anything else.As you read Alex Johnson's work, you will get a glimpse into the mind that is 1/3 passion, 1/3 creativity, and 1/3 darkness. As you read through these, you will get snapshots of environments and worlds that you have not encountered before, and like snapshots, will stay in your mind like mysterious events frozen in time. Here, you will get flights of fancy, downward spirals of insanity, and some somber tones of shadow. These poems are just like the bones from the past and there are not any two alike.The same mind that will give you the vilest of debauchery also pens such poems as this:The BurningWe dance againSoft, sad and slowTo the music from a private radioThe memories hugged harderThe more they fade awayAnd the burning beginsCome, stop, won’t you stay?But it isn’t what we wantAnd both of us know itLove’s a melancholy hauntWe might as well own it.Just like a kiss from a skeleton, this poetry will be darkly intimate with you for days to come. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.
