    Now Here's Some Dark Poetry...

    I live there too! That place deep within the

    shattered skin, the torn shades where no light shines in! I live there too, where no ears hear my screams or see the torment in my eyes, where loneliness is my demise and all that lives always dies....I live there too!

    The Dark Night Of The Soul

    Upon a darkened night the flame of love was burning in my breast And by a lantern bright I fled my house while all in quiet rest Shrouded by the night and by the secret stair I quickly fled The veil concealed my eyes while all within lay quiet as the dead. Oh night thou was my...

    What is it like to have to keep your emotions

    inside? Bottled up and remain stoic no matter how you feel. It is pure hell! A hell that can't be measured in words. I am amazed that I survived my childhood in this way. Beaten to a pulp with a wire brush, belt, fists. Not allowed to cry out in pain or get kicked in the...

    Your not so old are you,

    twisty, jerky and a lil ugly. Sure I let you in at times and we both get twistedly morbid, light and dark. Following the sun or deep into the dark abyss, there is no middle ground. Chasing down my fears, I will stand by me til daylight comes.
