Saint of Parasites by Keithwormwood Saint of Parasites by Keithwormwood
I took ill and was confined to a bed in the furthest wing of the local hospital. My health worsened as I spent my time alone save the occasions when a visitation would wake me from fitful dreams. A wan figure would enter, passing down between the rows of empty beds towards me, flanked by two monastic attendants each holding up the lengths of her vestments to prevent them trailing on the floor. My body seemed to shift and stir on its own accord in response to her presence.

"My dearest." she would say in hushed tones that seemed to emanate from within my own ears.
"Fear not, I will be with you always, till the day that you die."
The squirming sensation inside me increased as though hanging on her every word.

"I only ask what any devoted lover would. Everything you have left you share with me."

I remember seeing this a while back when I was working on a story of mine. She actually reminds me of a character named Zephyr from the very same story I mentioned.
Anyways, I am fascinated by such a being; the amazing detail and the haunting presence~ Love this, along with all your other fantastic work.

Beautifully horrifying, like all your work. The translucence of the parasite-flesh is really eerie. As Dholms above said, the more you look at it the nastier it gets, all the little details become apparent one by one. I'm fascinated as to why she has a gun in her detatched hand.

The gun and the arm connotes the potentiality for lethality, but in a disconnected way.

Aahh!! When I read that text and then scrolled back up to re-read the title of the piece, I physically recoiled as it 'clicked.' Spooky! I love it!

Perhaps saints aren't just about the so-called 'nice' things in life after all...
As always, this is creepy and eye-catching all at once.

This is awesome. Yet it makes me feel like everything around me is covered in parasites (funny thing is that is partly true considering nature XD) and makes swallowing fell oddly dangerous.

Still one of my absolute favorites of yours. The composition and tiny details--the worms in her legs, the rose blossom intestines, the mandelbrot halo--are sublime. When I can, I must buy a print of my own.
