Die geheimen Tageb├╝cher von einer verderbten Existenz

Behind these gates you will hear my thoughts screaming like nerves under the sun and feel my emotion laughing to the empty ether.
Welcome Dear Wanderer, make yourself at home.
The road is long and tortuous and I hope you enjoy yourself.

Fraternally Yours,
Poison Creeper

Original Latin Text texts from the chants of Hildegard von Bingen + translation

O rubor sanguinis,
qui de excelso illo fluxisti,
quod divinitas tetigit,

tu flos es,
quem hiems de flatu serpentis
num quam lesit.


O ruby blood



O ruby blood
which flowed from on high
where divinity touched.

You are a flower
that the winter
of the serpent's breath
can never injure.

Hildegard of Bingen (German: Hildegard von Bingen; Latin: Hildegardis Bingensis; 1098 ? 17 September 1179), also known as Blessed Hildegard, Saint Hildegard, and Sybil of the Rhine, was a Christian mystic, German Benedictine abbess, author, counselor, linguist, naturalist, scientist, philosopher, physician, herbalist, poet, channeller, visionary, composer, and polymath. Elected a magistra by her fellow nuns in 1136, she founded the monasteries of Rupertsberg in 1150 and Eibingen in 1165.

She was a composer with an extant biography from her own time. One of her works, the Ordo Virtutum, is an early example of liturgical drama.[2]

She wrote theological, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as letters, liturgical songs, poems, and the first surviving morality play, while supervising brilliant miniature Illuminations.
