    Coming Down~by Me

    Tomorrow Will Be Alright

    How can i keep my faith when everything isnt going right? How can i keep going when all the fears come rushing back into my mind? They always tell me "You'll be fine, just keep believing" Sometimes i just want to stop believing. I just dont see it! I want to give up soo bad...

    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...

    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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
