    Devil Vs. God

    I know it is wrong to think dark and disturbing thoughts. I was always taught that when you're mind goes that dark, it's a sign of the devil inviting his self in. I am a strong believe in god but sometimes I feel so angry and alone that I just want to put an end to certain things...

    The Dark Lures Me In

    Some days my mind drifts off into this dark, dark place. It can take weeks or even months before I stop having bad thoughts, but some days it's fairly normal. I don't know what a "normal" mind thinks... but I guess my mind is almost completely normal some days. Some days though...

    Saddness

    My mind is more of a dark sad lost place instead of an evil place though wickedness and tragedy so easily intertwine it seems. Could you see the wickedness or sadness when you look inside of me? I wonder who honestly can. I look at the world and I see such beauty peace and...

    The Fading Light

    I wonder if I could run forever without stopping could I escape the despair that is within me? Shackled by chains unseen by others, imprisoned by bars and locks that others cannot know, I desperately try to find an opening...any crack that I can cling to that can be used to tear...

    *Dark Laugh*

    I really have a dark mind... *Chuckles* I bet I'd scare my own family if they knew what I was thinking about sometimes. :/ First off, let's start with my profile pic. (If I have changed it, just keep reading.) It's a pic of a Cubone beating the blood out of a Pidgey. Whew... Okay...
