‘HALLOWEEN HORRORS and FRIGHT STORIES for 2016’

By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.
http://blackauthorsconnect.com/cgi-bin/blog.cgi?blog_id=299011&cid=10

“Underfoot”
The pounding noise would not stop. I had to find a way to make it stop. Don’t you understand? It had to stop. It began to pound loudly. It was too loud…very loud! Do you not hear it? It’s driving me mad, mad I tell you. Through the crack in the floor the orb peered out.

“Howl Of An angel”
Watching, listening, and remembering all of the things that actually matter in this aging process. One would have you believe that aging is an honor, while on the other hand, a burden on society – the burden being money. How are we going to feed and care for the elderly? Do we do a bamboozling act on them by implementing the “Logan’s Run” theory?

“HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN SCORNED!”
“Demon’s Throat”
“I remember this familiar feeling, for about the third time in three months; of falling – falling down. The falling only came to an end for one reason – maybe two. The point is…I was able to grab onto something in order to break my fall. The primary reason is coming to a complete and utter dead end stop – at the bottom of the stairway, which began at the second floor landing. It didn’t necessarily matter to what position your body was in when this complete and utter stop completed the descent. Albeit, stair-steps and bottom of the stairway landings come into play, the stop is at the bottom of the stairs.”

“When There’s No More Room In Hell”
My name is Salestian Michaels. I’m currently employed by the ‘Philadelphia Sunny Globe Newspaper Organization and International News Network.’ I was born and raised in South Philly, the heart and soul of ‘Mafiosi Life.’ Angel Brondidi and Nick the Needle ran it all when they weren’t at odds with one another.
I was there when Captain Willis Samuel and National Forestry Service Ranger Commander Gerald Glenn confronted and eradicated the monster beast in the park. I didn’t like Glenn very much, although I admired him. He was damn good at what he did. It was his woman that I liked…loved and wanted.

“The Pendulum of Hades”
Fate was issuing from the lips of the black-robed men. What an expression of firmness and immovable resolution? My lord, the grotesqueness! The faces blazed with stern contempt of human nature. Fate continued, in his view, issuance from their lips. He saw them writhe with deadly locution. I shuddered to think what the man saw. The idea of delirious horror…
Can you imagine the thought of him seeing angelical form? Some of the forms having heads of flaming spectres haunted his very soul. He had hopes of receiving help. He thought of sweet rest – in the grave. What peace there must be…in the grave? The thought came to him gently.
Silence, stillness, and darkness would contain such peace.

“Bowery of The Crimson Frock and Flesh”
By complete and utter observation, this opportunity allows the portrayal of the higher powers of the reflective intellect. Men and women of the highest order of intellect have been known to take an (apparently) unaccountable delight in their special analytical abilities; which a proficiency implies the capacity for success in all important understanding where mind versus mind.
“This Evening, Extra Ordinary Murders Have Been Discovered!”
The newspaper’s report stated inhabitants, at about 3a.m., of the ‘Quarter St. Roch,’ were aroused from their beds by blood-curdling screams and shrieks from the upper floors. On the fourth floor of the Rue Morgue, therein resided Madame L’Espanaye and her daughter, Mademoiselle Camille L’Espanaye. They were the sole occupants of the flat, not mention, the entire building.
The thick oozing gore dripped from the razor’s blade tip, down to the carpeted floor. The small puddle of crimson colored fluid began to grow into a larger pool, indicating it hasn’t been dripping very long.

‘Bowery of The Crimson Frock and Flesh’ Part Two: “The Wedding Party”
“They were lured with grapes, champagne, and laudanum. And then they were all euthanized.” The inspector spoke in trance-like sentences. “They were transported and dumped.”
The inspector began interviewing professional men. He spoke with doctors, dentists, taxidermists, veterinarians, surgeons, barbers, and butchers to the disapproval, chagrin, and dismay of Scotland Yard High Officials.

‘Isle Manhattan’
“The Changeling – Loup Garou”
Part Three:
‘A Significant Era of Perceptive Aroma and Vision’
“Even a man, who is pure of heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the ‘Wolfsbane’ blooms and the Autumn Moon is bright.”

“ALL HALLOWS NIGHT” – SHORT STORY IRONY
They believed that they saw the Forrest moving! “There is Movement In The Wood!” Suddenly, the tower guards spotted a showing of arms and war power.
The battle bell rang!
The king of Hell was a giant among giants. The owner of the Souls of Sinners, Supreme Ruler of the Damned, displayed three faces. In each mouth of one of the faces showed teeth anointed in blood; blood so thick and ample, it dripped of foam.
http://gboulwareallhallowsnight.blogspot.com/

“SHAMAN”
They were not aware of the trouble that was amiss. Emergency vehicles were parked at the spot where the body of Lindsey Irvin lay at the bottom of the twelve hundred ft. drop from the cliff of the Strawberry Mansion roadway and bridge surface.
“The Colored Man was chased and treed in the woods in or near the Robert Faddis Woods near Youngsburg. The Black Man tried to shoot himself in the head, but failed. They took the Black Man to the hospital were his injuries were treated. A gang of white men broke the window in the main hallway, corralled the police officer guarding him and dragged the Black Man from his sick bed to the Sarah Jane Newland Farm just to the right of the road and almost directly opposite the farmhouse. In a grass field about fifty feet from the road, they gathered dried Chestnut Rails and old fencing to build a fire. It took all of three minutes to get the fire up to a height of ten feet or more. They asked him if he had any last words…he didn’t.

“The Foxy Grandpa, Billy the Poet”
“The folks who understood science agreed that folks oughta stop making so many babies and
the folks who understood morals agreed that society would collapse if people used s*x for
nothing but pleasure.”
“The people who have been most eager to rule, to make the laws, to enforce the laws and to tell everybody exactly how God wants things to be here on Earth – these people have forgiven themselves and their friends for anything and everything. But, they have been absolutely disgusted and terrified by the natural s*xuality of common men and women.”
http://thefoxygrandpabillythepoet.blogspot.com/

‘The Rails, Some Hemp, and A Hanging’
The company had its share of ‘shiner’s’ on both sides of the war-torn fences. Their horses bayed and pranced in the cold damp yet dark beginning of the day’s morn. My hanging tribunal was short and to the point. My foolish guilt could not be reversed, albeit, my hatred for these ‘Blue-Coats’ and their Black supporters surpasses my pain and sorrowful agony. I do long for the fragrance and joys of home… My dear sweet ‘Abbey,’ my darling wife and young’uns; my plantation and memories of France cut at my brain.
In France I was broke, poor, and penniless… Here in South Louisiana, I have become rich, powerful, and wholesome. I have more than a hundred acres of land manned by two-hundred and eighty-five of the best young and strong Black livestock in the territory. Four hundred head of cattle graze on my lands. The farmyard houses chickens, geese, ducks, pork, and several dozen head of living horse flesh along with a few dogs and cats. I am a very wealthy man indeed.

The Acrimonious, Gauche, and Incongruous
‘Ajantala’
“Heigh! I’ve never seen a woman give birth to such a terrible baby as this one!” screamed the suffering woman.
And when he took the soap and sponge and washed from himself all the blood and goo away from his body, he wrapped himself in an article of clothing owned by his mother. He then sat upright atop a high stool and looked at the people. He looked into everyone’s eyes with his ungrateful red eyes.
“Ha! I am badly hungry for food. What can I eat now?” He then started to sniff the sweet smell of food which was inside the room nearest his mother’s room.
But when they were about to start to eat the food and drink the kolas, Ajantala unexpectedly jumped up high and pierced one of the people with a sharp iron spike.
But to their horror, when they were about to announce the name which his father, the hunter, wished the old ones to name him, the baby himself announced very loudly and clearly to the masses, “My name is ‘Ajantala,’ the Shrine, the Rock from Heaven, and there is no need to give me another!”

“A Thinking Thought”

By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

“The battle against the Devil, which is the principle task of Saint Michael The Arch-Angel, is still being fought today, because the Devil is still alive and active in the world.”
~Pope John Paul II~

“…Choosing not to believe in the Devil will not protect you from him”
~Anthony Hopkins, ‘Rite’~
The visit my cousin, ‘Kitty,’ did inspire the notion to record events transmitted from eye to brain.
The old neighborhood held many battle and time weary scars of erosion and decay. As I listened to the banter of reminiscing and current events, I couldn’t help gazing up and down the block and at every building which held a specific memory in time. I noticed every crack, split, and peeling façade and missing structures while wondering about the people who once dwelt within as well as those of the surrounding North-Philly landscape.

One man who greeted me out on the street was just a youngster when I saw him last. Now as a man, ‘Chip,’ remembered me. I had to ask my cousin “who,” in private of course, “is this man who remembered me while I do not recall his name?” She responded with his identity and a few others who were known yet not remembered. This past life held a great many memories and history that we shall never forget nor see again…

One of Kitty’s sisters, ‘Charmaine;’ who we all call “Butch” or “Butchie;” has been diagnosed with cancer. She and I held a special bond when we were young. I would hate to miss an opportunity to re-bond, especially at our current age. The realization of imminent death has many different effects on individuals world-wide. All death is imminent. For most of us, it holds a brighter yield when it’s you and it staring eye-ball-to-eye-ball.

How many times have we missed opportunities to say something, one last thing to someone who is on the cusp of passing over or who has passed? It’s happened to me and I’m sure it’s happened to you as well.

Oh yes, I’m simply thinking thoughts…thinking thoughts on what was, could have been, should have been, and what could be.

What do you think?

Do you, does anyone or everyone have thinking thoughts? Do you think a person would know the Devil if he or she met him face to face?

Thinking aloud, I can’t help but wonder how many so-called “Thinking People” truly understand the true meaning of “cognisance?”
Considering all the evil and contrary practices and behaviors associated, kindness, contentment, and mutual respect are tread upon. This current presidential election shines a lustrous and blinding glow riding upon blatant divisiveness, hatred, fear, and bigotry than ever before. It’s always been there. It was direct from slavery times until closeted during the late 70’s through the 90’s. The ‘Obama Campaign’ caused a major re-emergence…right out and into the light of plain sight.

There was too much at stake, they (the racist bigots) had to be secretive. But when one is reassured of defeating this man of color or a woman who is perceived to be a compatriot of and for downtrodden folks and people of color, the gloves come off and no punches are pulled; white supremacy comes quickly out of the woodwork, out of the closets to glare and gloat; to dominate and control the masses of colored people throughout the world. “We Shall Make America Great Again!”

~ ‘The True Meaning of “Great Again”’ ~
We should “Pledge Ourselves to Resist To The Bitter End, The Efforts of Our Deadly Enemies in Attempting to Mold A Sentiment Against Us After The Southern Method. Our Deadly Foes Are Now Busy Educating Their Children to Hate Us And To Believe That We Are Low, Degraded, and Vicious Because Our Skins Are Dark!”
Within this current ugly convoluted and racially charged so-called quasi politically charged ‘Presidential’ race for the top administrative position and the “White House” of these United States of America, raises the ire of many ‘right-thinking’ voters. Right thinking is not to be confused with “right-wing” or “left-wing” positions in this divided nation of ours. The term is meant to identify those of us who know the difference between right and wrong.
http://blackhistory.com/content/293106/the-true-meaning-of-great-again
When He/It was defeated and cast out from the realm and presence of “The Most High,” He/It was quoted to say “It is better to rule in Hell than to serve in Heaven!” He/It also vowed to decimate, disrupt, kill and/or destroy every man, woman, and child of humanity regardless of race, creed, or color!

You may ask why there is so much hatred and divisiveness amongst the ‘Children of God,’ the so-called “Mankind…Humanity?” The answer – the warning – the posting is documented in within the text of every single Holy Book – ‘Qur’an,’ ‘Torah,’ ‘Books of Spirituality,’ and ‘Christian Bible’ in and of the world. It’s been explained, taught, and preached in every Church, Holy Mosque, and Synagogue throughout the world.

You and I are very much aware of who heeds the message and who it is that turns a blind eye and a deaf ear. These are the children of Satan…and death, “eyeball-to-eyeball.”

What is it that you see and hear as thoughtful thinking human beings?

We People of Color (and downtrodden folk) have always been daunted and haunted by the one who is/has been/always/will be – hiding in the woodpile… It is he/she who does not wish to be free while attempting to deny you your freedom…
What makes one do such a thing?

What is it that makes him or her hate their own as much as they hate themselves?

You know who you are! Yes, You! The one who spies and reports falsehoods on your family, friends, and neighbors…to and for the pleasure and pleasing of your master(s). Should your candidate, the evil one, win the presidency, what makes you think your fate will be any different than any other Downtrodden Person or Person of Color? The wide boot of oppression will fit your neck the same as ours…

Our family, like many, is no stranger to cancer. Our beloved ‘Allyse Virginia Coulter Cruz’ was taken away from us at the tender age of thirteen. She fought a damn good fight for over a period of several years. In her short-lived youth, the diagnosis came when she was just nine years old.

Butch’s mom, ‘Mary Ettta Henderson,’ passed away due to grip of breast cancer. The curse it seems has chosen to make a grab for my cousin as well. Another cousin of mine, on the other side of the family, ‘Denise,’ who happens to share my birthdate; she was born in the afternoon whereas I was delivered in the morning, also became a victim of the invader, cancer.

I’ll be visiting with her without fail. “Cancer Awareness,” the pinking of anything pink-able, is portrayed widely throughout the nation every year (for many, every day) …without fail.

Would you find it hard to believe that many people opposed the pink of the NFL’s recognition and league-wide display? It’s gotten better over time.

I wonder how many of us will go out and vote this election? I wonder if those who do will vote for the best candidate and not the one who smiles and pats them on the head…the one who call them “boy” and “gal” …the one who will roll back time, put you in (more) chains and label them as thieves, murderers, criminals, and servants in the planned world of servitude – “THE NEW WORLD ORDER?” …I wonder.

“The Modern American Slave”
http://blackhistory.com/content/298944/the-modern-american-slave

Oh, don’t mind me, I’m just thinking a thought. Maybe we all should be thinking a thought…one of peace, love, freedom, justice, and contentment – for all who think thoughts, good thoughts of such.

Til Next Time…

A Nourishing Of The 3rd Eye 

“The Chakra”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By

Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

http://blackhistory.com/cgi-bin/blog.cgi?id=641608

 

Third Eye Chakra – Ajna

6th Chakra

http://www.chakra-anatomy.com/third-eye-chakra.html

 

The Third Eye Chakra transcends time. It is located in the brain, at the brow, above the base of the nose.

 

Third eye chakra:

The gift of this chakra is seeing – both inner and outer worlds.

 

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as gifts of spiritual contemplation and self-reflection.

 

Through the gift of seeing we can internalize the outer world and with symbolic language we can externalize the inner world.

 

The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths – to see beyond the mind, beyond the words.

 

The “way of the third eye” is seeing everything as it is from a point of “witness” or “observer”, or from simply being mindful – moment by moment.

 

It means examining self-limiting ideas and developing wisdom that comes from a perspective that transcends the duality of good or bad, black or white. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.

 

Sixth chakra is holistic in nature. When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchrony. The right hemisphere’s creativity and synthetic thinking is integrated and balanced with left hemisphere’s logical and analytical thinking.

 

The Third Eye is not only the seat of wisdom, but also a seat of conscience. This is where you not only see what is going on, but you also know what it means. This is where your sense of justice and your ethics originate.

 

When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.

“Study the people who took you out of history. Then you’ll understand -your history.” “For your survival, draw on the intellectual heritage of the whole world, but always start with your own intellectual heritage”.

–Dr. John Henrik Clarke

 

“The surest way to kill a race is to kill its religion and ideals. Can anybody doubt that the white race deliberately attempted to do that? This is to kill the souls of a people. And when the spirit is killed, what remains?”

–Frederick Peso, Mescalero Apache

 

“Sure there are a few good whites just as much as there are a few bad Blacks. However what we are concerned here with is group attitudes and group politics. The exception does not make a lie of the rule – it merely substantiates it.”

–Steve Biko

The Black American Poem

By

Smokey Robinson

http://www.slicksno.com/thalookout/the-black-american-poem.html

 

I love being Black. I love being called Black. I love being an American.

I love being a Black American, but as a Black man in this country I think it’s a shame that every few years we get a change of name.

 

Since those first ships arrived here from Africa that came across the sea there were already Black men in this country who were free.

And as for those that came over here on those terrible boats, they were called niggah and slave and told what to do and how to behave.

 

And then master started trippin’ and doing his midnight tippin’, down to the slave shacks where he forced he and Great-Great Grandma to be together, and if Great-Great Grandpa protested, he got tarred and feathered.

 

And at the same time, the Black men in the country who were free, were mating with the tribes like the Apache and the Cherokee.

And as a result of all that, we’re a parade of every shade.

And as in this late day and age, you can be sure, they ain’t too many of us in this country whose bloodline is pure.

 

But, according to a geological, geographical, genealogy study published in Time Magazine, the Black African people were the first on the scene, so for what it’s worth, the Black African people were the first on earth and through migration, our characteristics started to change, and rearrange, to adapt to whatever climate we migrated to.

 

And that’s how I became me, and you became you.

 

So, if we gonna go back, let’s go all the way back, and if Adam was Black and Eve was Black, then that kind of makes it a natural fact that everybody in America is an African American.

 

Everybody in Europe is an African European; everybody in the Orient is an African Asian and so on and so on, that is, if the origin of man is what we’re gonna go on.

And if one drop of Black blood makes you Black like they say, then everybody’s Black anyway.

 

So quit trying to change my identity.

 

I’m already who I was meant to be I’m a Black American, born and raised.

And Brother James Brown wrote a wonderful phrase, “Say it loud, I’m Black and I’m proud! Say it loud, I’m Black and I’m proud!”

 

Cause I’m proud to be Black and I ain’t never lived in Africa, and ’cause my Great-Great Granddaddy on my Daddy’s side did, don’t mean I want to go back.

Now I have nothing against Africa, it’s where some of the most beautiful places and people in the world are found.

 

But I’ve been blessed to go a lot of places in this world, and if you ask me where I choose to live, I pick America, hands down.

 

Now, by and by, we were called Negroes, and after while, that name has vanished.

Anyway, Negro is just how you say ‘black’ in Spanish.

 

Then, we were called colored, but shit, everybody’s one color or another, and I think it’s a shame that we hold that against each other.

 

And it seems like we reverted back to a time when being called Black was an insult, even if it was another Black man who said it, a fight would result, cause we’ve been so brainwashed that Black was wrong, So that even the yellow niggahs and black niggahs couldn’t get along.

 

But then, came the 1960s when we struggled and died to be called equal and Black, and we walked with pride with our heads held high and our shoulders pushed back, and Black was beautiful.

 

But, I guess that wasn’t good enough, cause now here they come with some other stuff.

Who comes up with this shit anyway?

 

Was it one, or a group of niggahs sitting around one day?

Feelin’ a little insecure again about being called Black and decided that African American sounded a little more exotic.

 

Well, I think you were being a little more neurotic.

It’s that same mentality that got “Amos and Andy” put off the air, cause they were embarrassed about the way the character’s spoke.

 

And as a result of that action, a lot of wonderful Black actors ended up broke.

When we were just laughin’ and have fun about ourselves.

So I say, “fuck you if you can’t take a joke.”

 

You didn’t see the “Beverly Hillbilly’s” being protested by white folks.

And if you think, that cause you think that being called African American set all Black people’s mind at ease…

 

Since we affectionately call each other “niggah”, I affectionately say to you, “niggah Please”.

 

How come I didn’t get the chance to vote on who I’d like to be?

Who gave you the right to make that decision for me?

 

I ain’t under your rule or in your dominion And I am entitled to my own opinion.

Now there are some African Americans here, but they recently moved here from places like Kenya, Ethiopia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Zaire.

 

But, not the brother whose family has lived in the country for generations, occupying space in all the locations New York, Miami, L.A., Detroit, Chicago… Even if he’s wearing a ‘Dashiki’ and sporting an ‘Afro.’

 

And, if you go to Africa in search of your race, you’ll find out quick you’re not an African American, You’re just a Black American in Africa takin’ up space.

Why you keep trying to attach yourself to a continent, where if you got the chance and you went, most people there would even claim you as one of them; as a pure bread daughter or son of them.

 

Your heritage is right here now, no matter what you call yourself or what you say And a lot of people died to make it that way.

 

And if you think America is a leader on inequality and suffering and grievin’, how come there so many people comin’ and so few leavin’?

Rather than all this ‘find fault with America’ fuck you promotin’, if you want to change something, use your privilege, get to the polls!

Commence to votin’!

 

God knows we’ve earned the right to be called American Americans and be free at last.

And rather than you movin’ forward progress, you dwelling in the past.

We’ve struggled too long; we’ve come too far.

 

Instead of focusing on who we were, let’s be proud of who we are.

We are the only people whose name is always a trend.

When is this shit gonna end?

 

Look at all the different colors of our skin…

Black is not our color. It’s our core.

 

It’s what we been livin’ and fightin’ and dyin’ for.

But if you choose to be called African American and that’s your preference, then I ‘ll give you that reference.

 

But I know on this issue I don’t stand alone on my own and if I do, then let me be me.

And I’d appreciate it if when you see me, you’d say, “there goes a man who says it loud I’m Black. I’m Black. I’m a Black American, and I’m proud”.

Cause I love being an American. And I love being Black. I love being called Black.

Yeah, I said it, and I don’t take it back.
