Disorders in the American Court

This is from an email I received the other day;

These cross-examinations, are taken from a book, called ‘Disorders in the American Court ‘.
They are statements made in court, purportedly, word for word, taken down at the time, and published now by Court Reporters, who had the torment to stay calm, and controlled, while these exchanges were actually taking place.

WITNESS: He said, “Where am I, Cathy?”

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?

Abstract Conversation

3D003_010

Often when I travel through the blogosphere I land on posts that are just little gems hidden within the blog, especially if they are not on the front page of the blog or featured in the top posts. There is so much wisdom and beauty available out there and I intend to spend some more time going beyond just the most recent posts.

Thankfully by being pointed in the direction of a particular series of posts I found a treasure that just blew my mind.

Please let me introduce you to Enreal and her Abstract Conversation

Tourniquet

I tried to kill the pain
but only brought more
so much more
I lay dying
and I’m pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

do you remember me
lost for so long
will you be on the other side
or will you forget me
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
am I too lost to be saved
am I too lost?

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

I want to die!!!

my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation
my God my tourniquet
return to me salvation

my wounds cry for the grave
my soul cries for deliverance
will I be denied Christ
tourniquet
my suicide
