The Silicone Ghost by GothicNarcissus The Silicone Ghost by GothicNarcissus
I’m a larva wrapped in silk.
I am dying in burning flesh.
Let me out, let me ache.
Let me out, let me ache and itch.

Get me out of this suit.
I go to a funeral every day,
I follow these people around,
I follow these people like a rat’s tail.
I carry their caskets, I sing them good night,
They’re better off without me.

Beauty is poisonous.
Disruptive.
Oh, Heaven must be an iron rose
Unfolding.
Oh, let me in, let me out,
Let me in, let me out!

This is a retirement
From plumbing the veins of rats and kings.
Let the stars be my eyes, then
Unchain the knuckles and latches, unbutton my wrists.

My skin so thin you can see black holes within,
My eyes so clear they light up the sky.
And sometimes I’ll bend into the silicone veil
And enter this world again as a ghost.

Beauty is poisonous.
Disruptive.
Oh, Heaven must be an iron rose
Unfolding.
Oh, let me in, let me out,
Let me in, let me out!


[ The Silicone Veil – Susanne Sundfør ]


Final photo from the series taken by my dear Veronica and my favourite of the whole series. It was taken along with Shake It Out but has a totally different feeling from it, so here it is. The title is taken from this beautiful song which I recommend you all to listen.
Taken in Bologna, Italy.

great series. The photographer did a great job capturing the emotion and you did a great job of showing emotion. Which is rare in your modeling photos. So keep up the good work. :)

And it shows...I've been so impressed with this series as well. Your such a handsome guy and like a lot of models, knows the how to of posing, but your recent series shows a lot of positive change with your expression...these shots are a lot more than just a pretty picture...there's also a story...
