Gothic Bite Magazine Presents

THE DEEP DARK

by: Francis J. Burns

The deep dark had come, that time between two and four a.m., when most of the world can be found clutched in the bowels of sleep. A heavy mist slithered in from the sea. Saint Theresa of the Blessed Heart Hospital was hushed. Roan settled further into his chair as he read, fleeing from the creeping chill. Beside him, Selena rested. Her breathing was slow, even, comforting in its regularity. He glanced at her every so often when the clacking of shoes on tile stirred him from his book. In the cavernous silence, the pages whispered with each turning. The story, lifted from his favorite video game series, captivated him.

The Dark Artistic Side of Rose Black

Throughout history, the word Gothic grew to mean many things. At first it was a reference to the late Dark Ages architecture. Then, it became a fashion statement before we decided to refer to it as art and a lifestyle.

Definition of Gothic

Gothic architecture is a style that flourished in Europe during the High and Late Middle Ages. It evolved from Romanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissance architecture.

Originating in 12th-century France, it was widely used, especially for cathedrals and churches, until the 16th century. But now it is more than just architecture, it is a lifestyle. — Wikipedia

Jo Vallianatou Gothic and Dark Photography

The Art of Letting Go

The visual arts are art forms such as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, filmmaking, design, crafts, and architecture. Many artistic disciplines involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. — Wikipedia

A Moment of Passing

A while back, Alyssa Monks shared moving insights in her TEDx Talk on art. She talked about how she tried another painting style set in nature, to rekindle her flame after her mother’s passing.

It gave me pause to reflect on creative writing as another act of art that penetrates the unknown. Specifically, it conveys the importance of allowing life to freely grace itself into the work. Letting nature’s truths on creation and death, on love and loss, reveal themselves in a more pure, unvarnished way.

Through the Fire and the Flames – Notre Dame

“I wanted to see you again, touch you, know who you were, see if I would find you identical with the ideal image of you which had remained with me and perhaps shatter my dream with the aid of reality.” — Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

1831 to 1996

My introduction to the Cathedral of Notre Dame was when I was a child; it was in the dark of a movie theatre and to a score that is to this day unbeatable in my mind.

To see Disney’s version of the Victor Hugo classic The Hunchback of Notre-Dame was astounding and much more relatable in the changed times since the 1831 release of the book.

Ring The Bells of Notre Dame

Today a chapter of history burned in flames. A chapter no one ever thought would end in fire. The landmark in the renovation, the roof engulfed in fire bringing with it its southern tower. No one knows if it is salvageable, people weep the loss of a part of its history.

This article is not a journalistic piece, and it is not a typical blog post from Gothic Bite Magazine. It is a bit small specter of history mixed with my emotional state at the view of Notre Dame in flames.

Cries & Fire

The medieval French Gothic building represents a monumental era of humankind history. It is a French landmark like no others. No other church has the historic Notre Dame has like no other building has these Romanesque towers and rose window looking over its people.

Sandman, A Horror Poem

For the month of April, Gothic Bite Magazine is celebrating the character of Sandman. A mystical character that worked its way into the paranormal world. Here is a poem about the sand throwing man.

Sandman

He is coming through the dilapidated alley
Slowly he’s coming to your window and watches the prey.
And if you look at his gaze you will fall in never land
For he will feed your eyes with his fearsome dreadful sand.
Shhhh here comes the Sandman.
