    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

    Humanity =

    (I honestly don't know what got into me, but i REALLY wanted to write something dark...) My mentality is insanity and all of humanity is stuck in technicality while the sanity of humanity is weakening evermore. My despair is unimpaired to those whom wimpier of simple pains. While...

    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...

    A Writer Writes...

    I don't AIM or PROGNOSTICATE or SET as a GOAL to write DARK poetry. On the one had I see myself as  a kind of vessel that hold  infinite experiences and memories and words and thoughts which were not spoken and were forbidden and shunned and thus hidden and so now at last I...

    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...

    Cutters Corner

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    1. Here we stay Not stand but lay In this old house Conquered by cobwebs And Shadowed sunlight It lingers in the air... The Screams!!! All of our dying hopes and dreams We must ignore That there is no door As we ourselves lie weeping 2. Here we stay Not stand but lay...

    FIREBRAND~by Me

    Spontaneous human cohabitation and freedom becomes her as she slips through the safehouse door, the grimy grip of her ex-best friend's lover leads the way... Strange eyes bypass introductions and she answers to no one, not even the desperado who soothes her illfated...
