    Death Becomes Her

    Amber waves of a scent so striking I feel as though I may be struck So deep, so dark, an un-dividing Heartless passion, a poisonous lust But oh the joys my death does bring Although hellish, my soul does sing Life's only true certainty is death So pick your poison With no regrets...

    Here's a song that was written in a book I read

    (Midwinderblood by Marcus Sedgwick): The wind doth blow today, my love, And a few small drops of rain; I never had but one true-love, In a cold grave he was lain. I’ll do as much for my true-love As any young girl may; I’ll sit and mourn all at his grave For a twelvemonth...

    Song Of Whisper

    Many times I flied to sky though I felt myself just fade shudder, darkness seek to hold shudder, light consume my world Fleeing, seeking, no one there I'm alone and searching hope broken tablets of that time a promise written in the past Drowning eyes which search the sky stars...

    Once Upon A Midnight Hour

    Once upon a midnight hour I came across a beautiful flower I thought it was the nightingale I smelled the flower to unveil It smelled so sweet It entered my mind The identity of the scent Was to find I rubbed its petals on my face Its velvet touch it felt like lace My breathing...

    A Dark Deed Committed

    The moonlight beams through These church windows As I sit and kneel for forgiveness The images spear my mind Of the foul act I committed But the choir boys are so...so.. Beautiful I weep in this moonlit church Asking for forgivness I weep alone. Always alone.

    Oh The Agony

    This is my first poem with a Gothic Drear. Enjoy... Oh the agony that lives in my heart The loss of my beloved is tearing me apart It was a villain in the night, the villain's name was Death My eyes are now waterfalls! I have lost my beauty's breath I am doomed to face life...

    Beast In Me

    I feel it beating in my heart Its fangs bared and talons glare It hungers now for a taste It wants to drag its claws against the flesh And sink its fangs within Let it hear you howl And maybe you'll live through the prowl

    Stoneheart

    Stoneheart Heart of stone,eyes of ice. I'll kill you once,I'll kill you twice. You'll slowly die, Again and again. Each time you breathe out, Each time you breathe in. I have no guilt,I have no fear. I am far, yet still so near. Lungs inhaling poison, Eyes glowing in the dark...

    The Kiss

    She is staring at her husband admiring his face, Thinking to herself she is in a happy place, She leans toward his face, and gives him the kiss, That gives her mind one moments bliss, A tear comes down her face, knowing she wanted more, She closes his casket and heads to the door...

    There is a corner,Hidden away from those who do not bleed,The blade brings blood,The walls are covered a crimson shade,Dark secrets told there each day,Under the place where people dwell,The cutters go and do their thing,Depression and tears,Anger and fears,Horrid thoughts spoken...

    Rebirth

    None can allay a pain ascending, For this agony seems never-ending. I screech out  "Nevermore!", As it burns on through the night. I cannot survive! I cannot endure! What accumulates with fright. "Help!" I screech in haunting pain. My heart, my soul, has begun to wane. I'm...
