    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...

    They Just Happen...

    It's bizarre, but I have incredibly dark, morbid and sometimes actually filthy...I'd have to call them daydreams. I've visualized my friends and I tortured to death, occasionally raped, I've visualized killing someone myself, but not raping them for some reason, and I have almost...

    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...

    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...
