Day 202 – Vice – Whispered Words

Am I just another of your stupid whores,

following you around with my tongue hanging to the floor,

waiting for a moment,

waiting for a look,

for you to notice me sitting here,

to notice me at all,

I’ll strip down to my flesh,

I’ll pump blood to make it hard,

I’ll do what you want,

look at me I’m dancing,

look at me I’ll sing,

I’ll do almost anything,

just so you will notice me,

just so you will say,

you wrote something beautiful today,

you wrote something with heart,

you wrote something that touched me,

but as for tomorrow,

well, you better make a start.

People are surprised when reading Matthew’s stories that he’s a sane forty something year old, happily married, father of one, employed full time and dream of dark disturbing things that any sane person would never even contemplate thinking of. But it's true, he’s toyed with writing for most of his adult life, but has always found the peg a writer must fit into is not the shape he wished to be. His writing can be described as lamenting, long, concussive (yes it smashes you in the head), compulsive, and stuffed with rhythmic communication and violence, let’s not forget the violence. His own opinion on his writing is this, “You see, I don't just want the words to seep into your mind, but into your soul, showing you images of blood and beauty through, volatile language, violence, sex, love and sin. My muse takes different shapes, and every now and then you can see her shining her wicked smile in some of my stories, tempting you with her promises, but ripping your heart out instead.” So have a look, and take a seat in my wayward ride, as you join me while I purge through, this twisted road of madness.
