Skeleton Kiss

Skeleton Kiss by Alex S. Johnson

Everyone harbors a secret, a desire—or desires—too terrible to reveal. The secrets push up from beneath like poisoned flowers, and only art can free their perfume. The alchemical work of the poet transforms the bitter into the sweet and shows how slim is the gap between madness and consensual reality With Skeleton Kiss, dark fiction author and music journalist Alex S. Johnson challenges his readers to go on a journey with him. A journey through the darkness into the light and back again. A taste of the horrors of love and the love of horror. In the tradition of such poets as Charles Baudelaire and Oscar Wilde, he doesn't skirt the abyss, but boldly gazes within and shares what he finds. Its title drawn from a song by goth legends Christian Death, Skeleton Kiss revives the scent of decomposing violets, the glory of the 19th Century Decadent movement, the thrilling place where sin meets the sacred and holiness the forbidden.
