The Flower of Evil:

Evil is but a blooming flower,
Alluring, captivating.
It is born from a humble seed
And grows to corrupt a forest.

To watch its infection spread;
To be a part of its existence...
I can think of no better prospect,
Can you?

Indeed one might baulk at the idea,
Of seeing millions suffer.
To watch worlds scream and writhe;
To see them suffer and die, with living eyes...

Yet there is a mysterious beauty in such devastation,
Fear that shakes me to my very core;
Is transfigured into a twisted pleasure:
As I am frightened, so too am I aroused.

I am addicted to the ephemeral sensation;
To the borderline between rapture and rupture.
To see my own blood soaking from splitting wounds;
Leaves me maddened amongst these blooming flowers

-Chen Yuan Wen, 1st May 2013
Alright, so as always the Captain is extremely busy, but with quite a lot of pestering, and some snacks, I managed to squeeze this poem out of him. I find it to be quite chilling, and excellently written, and I hope you all agree!

Also, when he sent me this he made a comment; "1st of May is Madness Day"

I'm not sure what this means, so I hope you guys could explain? xD

-Co-Captain Bunny Hayes

Have you ever read the Flowers in the Attic books? This reminds me of the story for some reason.

The 1st of May was traditionally a day of mad revelry in Pagan culture, a fertility festival. Depending on the time and place, sometimes this would involve a sort of orgy in the wilderness, and other times it would mean blood sacrifices of animals. The consumption of wine, hallucinogens, and in some cases the blood of the slaughtered animal (usually a young bull for strength and sexual prowess) would result in a temporary release from sanity and human society. People would abandon all inhibitions and lose themselves for a time, returning to sanity and normalcy upon the dawn of the following day.

The blooming flowers of evil whisper a mad melody within the ears of the tempted. I truly enjoyed this poem, Chen's dark poetry is always a treat.

This looks like a story about a masochist.

The Flower of Evil has many hidden thorns. If one doesn't watch where he's , one will become ensnared.

Idk, just though I should say that.
This poem just seems like it goes hand in hand with one i wrote called "Reality" :)

I'm going to say the same thing as DarkZelda, as that was the first thing I thought.

It's like watching the worst happen. The rise of tyranny, the worst possible scenario, etc. By reason you don't want such things to happen, but by curiosity, you not only find it sublime, but something that captivates your darkest senses.
