Dark Poetry

Tripping Balls

Gochni Schindler


A thought provoking, eclectic, disturbing and at times downright weird collection of poetry, short stories and insightful musings from the inimitable Gocni Schindler....


Gocni Schindler, personally I thank you for taking the time to read this. 


Tripping Balls is an unimaginable journey of eclectic, weird and thought-provoking short stories and poetry written over the course of seven years. 


Set in the tale of fiction protecting the guilty.  Criminals!   

He offers a variety of stories which beautifully gives the awesome reader, like you, the opportunity to experience different levels of thought and contemplation. I know, it’s so exciting!  God willing, some humor as well. 


The book takes off with a top shelf short story titled Hell-A-Expense. Super! Within this tale, the Demon takes possession of its victim and takes you along for the ride as a co-conspirator.  Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!  Step right up, step right up! Meet Johnny B Fast and the tale of Dynamic Drunken Disorderly. Damn, that’s a memory!  Moving along, moving along,


Oh, yes, we stop at the tale of Henrietta and her treacherous trip. What a bitch!  Insane is sexual.  Oh, look, another fine telling of a good story!  Mental Blues and a possible moment at the mental ward.  ‘Innocent I tell you, I’m innocent!’ Stop right there! Let me introduce you to the Homeless man, Ronin, and that good buddy Actor Man and yes, there is an almighty telling of their rotten tales.


You’ll meet them and plenty other amazing and exciting characters but not starting in Paradise. 


Have fun, jump around and own it as an adventure! 

Love you  GS.

Light Musings

Xtina Marie


The perfect companion piece to Xtina Marie's Dark Musings – an intriguing mirror image of the darkness you have just read, but no less deep and soul stirring.

What a web she weaves. Light Musings is a poetic narrative—a story told through related poems. Xtina Marie is a master of this style.


Known by her fans as the Dark Poet Princess, this term of endearment came about as a result of the horror genre embracing her first book: Dark Musings which continues to garner stellar reviews. Light Musings will not disappoint her loyal fans as darkness is present within these pages as well. However, this latest book will show a much larger audience that Xtina's poetry pulls out every feeling the reader has ever experienced—forcing them to feel with her protagonist.


Light Musings shows us that love is made from darkness and light; something Xtina Marie explores like no one else.
