    Stain my soul crimson red, Empty out my heart. Tear my mind right from my head, It was twisted from the start. Let another memory, Shatter on the floor. Broken shards of misery, That will haunt me evermore. Jaded eyes still gleaming, With the lust of my first kiss. The ruthless...

    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...

    Its Time

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
