The Bride

How far would you go to get back the one you love?

The rain seemed to go on without stopping for hours.
The showers came down in sideways sheets.
She waited patiently underneath a large oak tree,
which shielded her from the rain.
She had waitied for the sun to set and the caretaker to leave.
She was decked out in her billowing white wedding gown,
veil pulled down over her face which was tear streaked.
It had been 6 months since he left and her devotion showed no signs of wavering.
Why did you take yourself and not me with you? she wondered.
This was a question she had asked herself time and time again
to no avail.
She remembered when it first happened and she was livid with him.
How cowardly
How selfish
she thought.
The wedding gown she wore they had purchased together just 2 months prior to his….leaving.
She firmly gripped her shovel and wished the downpour would cease.
Her love would wait for her though.
Just as she had wait for him.
She began to hum a tune they would always sing together.
As if the fates were listening the clouds broke up
and the downpour was reduced to a trickle.
She trudged through the soggy grass and dirt
over to him. She plopped down on her knees.
Her intended wedding dress now stained
with wet earth.
She lay her head against his tombstone and sighed.
The rain started again heavier than before,
but she did not care.
She stood up and plunged the spade into the
wet ground, forcefully scooping out clumps of mud.
Breathing heavily, she cursed him
for being selfish and the sky for its showers.
She dug as if was the only thing that mattered.
She dug until she hit the pine box in which he lay.
It seemed to take forever but not even the blisters that formed on her hands
or a storm would keep her from seeing her heart again.
The lid was raised and she wept at the mottled shriveled
shell of her beloved.
“Dammit Chris !” She shrieked and plunged the spade into
the corpse’s throat. She did it again until the head seperated from the neck.
She firmly grasped the remaining hairs on his scalp and snatched it out of the coffin.
Out of the hole she climbed, gripping the head close to her bosom.
With the head in one hand and the spade in the other,slowly she trudged to her car and gingerly placed the head in the passenger seat.
She started the car and headed home.
At a four way stop the light turned red and she gazed over
longingly at the head.
It was good to have him back.
It was good to be near him again.
“You know if you asked me to marry you again just as you are I would do it in a heartbeat.”
she said aloud.
She lifted the head and placed her lips to his black shriveled pout.
The light turned green.
Her lips were still firmly planted on his, or what remained of his
when the honking 18 wheeler ripped into the side of her small sedan.
The impact sent them flying into a tree culminating in a marriage of twisted steel,
and blood.

Inspired by a fake story

Sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction and other times it is that very fiction which inspires all too real dastardly deeds. You may be familiar with films inspired by true crime such as Cannibal (2006) which was about German internet cannibal and killer Armin Meiwes and Karla (2006) which focused on the tawdry and terrible crimes of serial killers Karla Homolka and her husband at the time Paul Bernardo, but what about films that actual true criminals like? This list highlights crimes inspired by film as well as films favored by murderers.

*Matamoros NarcoSatanicos- The Believers (1987) The creepy flick with African based sorcery at its core starring Martin Sheen and Jimmy Smits was reportedly screened for potential recruits of the cult by an enthusiastic believer herself, Sara “La Madrina” Aldrete . The cult, led by Adolfo “El Padrino” Constanzo, went on to torture and sacrificially murder 13 people. Aldrete, who resides in a Mexican prison has since gone on to write a bestselling book about her time in the cult and make art. Constanzo ordered a loyal follower, Alvaro “El Duby” de Leon to execute he and Martin Quintana, a lover/loyal follower as authorities closed in on his Mexican hide out.

* Richard Ramirez- The deceased serial killer, rapist and burglar was very much a fan of the skin suit making, woman in a well keeping, dancing while tucked serial killer “Buffalo Bill”(played by Ted Levine) from Silence of the Lambs (1990). During an interview with a popular newspaper the serial killer admitted;”That guy on the show “Monk”, I really liked him in “Silence of the Lambs” and also stated just months before his death that he was particularly fond of one infamous scene from the film; ‘That scene where he says, “It rubs the lotion on its skin,” I really like [it].”

* Sarah Edmonson & Ben Darras- The drugged out teenage couple repeatedly watched Natural Born Killers (1994) before taking off on a Southern fried crime spree that left Bill Savage dead in Mississippi and Patsy Byers paralyzed in Louisiana. In 2010 after serving 11 years on a 30 year prison term, Edmonson, the daughter of an Oklahoma supreme court justice and niece of the state attorney general has been released from the Louisiana women’s prison where she was being held and ordered to serve her parole in Oklahoma. Her partner in crime, Darras, who is not from a politically connected family still remains in a Mississippi prison.

* Allan Menzies- The Scottish murderer watched Queen of the Damned(2002) more than 100 times and was convinced that Akasha (played by the late Aaliyah) ordered him to kill. He brutally murdered his best friend Thomas McKendrick and drank two cups of his blood and ate a fragment of his skull after Mckendrick (who actually loaned the film to him) insulted his belief in vampires and made a tasteless sexual comment about Aaliyah. Menzies told his lawyer, “He should never have insulted my bird.”

*Lee Boyd Malvo- The surviving half of The Beltway Snipers serial killer duo, was obsessed with The Matrix (1999). He and father figure serial killer John Allen Mohammed (who has since been executed) claimed ten lives. In hundreds of drawings and notes Malvo wrote about “Freeing yourself from The Matrix”. Malvo even told officers that if they wanted to understand him they should watch The Matrix. In jail, dialogue from the movie written on pieces of paper were found in his cell.

Protest this

Women do a lot of apologizing and explaining their decisions. This is a fact, it is a way of life in a society with oppressive religious dogma and patriarchal standards.
Well here is one woman who will not be apologizing ever for her stance on a woman being able to choose what to do with her reproductive organs no matter what the reason. Some people think; “I accept abortion if she was raped or she will die is she carries to term.” but that is a poisoned way of thinking, how about if she just does not want to contribute to overpopulation or has no earthly desire to breed?

People use the ol’ “what if your mom aborted you?” defense, which makes no sense rationally as you are not obligated to do as others do (yes even your mother) for this is your life and you have to live with your decisions. She birthed you for whatever reason and if you have a womb it should be your choice; not your mother’s, not a male politician who will never know what it is like to be pregnant, not some bible thumping housewife indoctrinated in the ways of being a “god-fearing” woman in denial of her right to choose, not some religious text that was not written with you in mind, hell not even the man who impregnated you. This is your body. Here in the deep bible belted South, access to women’s rights to reproductive health are being stripped away at an alarming rate.

The religious agenda who claims to be looking out for the best interest of the woman in fact has no concern for the woman other than insofar as her hosting an embryo. When the woman actually gives birth then she is of no importance to those “pro-lifers” who claim to give such a damn. When said woman is unable to feed or support the child she was bullied into breeding or is suffering from post partum depression, where are all these so called allies when she is suffering (mostly in silence, for women are taught to not cause a stir and not be self serving and not look out for number one)? For many, a woman is good for nothing more than making other people and if she is not doing that or trying to make her own choices that do not involve that then she is demonized. How many women have been bullied or forced into breeding due to misogynistic religious rules, lack of support and/or funding ? People talk about bullying and high school , how about bullying when it comes to reproduction? It is an open and widely accepted practice.

Abortion clinics are closing left and right. There is government funding for abortion, but only if giving birth will kill her or she has been raped. Yes, lets make her relive her sexual assault to justify why she wants to take control of her body when someone else violated her choice in the first place. Women should not have to justify choices they make with their own bodies. Ever. Little do the “pro-choice” fanatics know or wish to accept, women have been terminating pregnancies for as long as there have been wombs. Hell, nature has been terminating pregnancies for as long as there have been wombs.Truth be told, a great deal of pregnancies end in spontaneous abortions, known to the layman as miscarriages. Time to protest Mother Nature right? How dare she ey? Pregnancy termination did not suddenly begin with clinics. The abortion industry has been commercialized and industrialized so that money could be made off the procedure but you can say the exact same thing about the birth control industry and anything that has been commercialized for capitalistic gain.

If anything, all these restrictions and closings will hopefully drive women to educate themselves and learn how to take their reproductive matters into their own hands. Unfortunately some will be in such despair and have no one to turn to that they may engage in unsafe means a la “coat hanger abortions”, this would not be the case if women’s bodily processes and options were not so shamed and hushed. There will always be midwives and wort cunning women with the knowledge and skill to assist in pregnancy terminations. They can close all the clinics they want, women will still find a way. Go protest that.
