    Sweet Pandemonium~by Me

    pretty pictures of death tangled up in bloodied bedsheets a subtle knife next to my busted mainline still pumping out visions.. i thought about giving the monster a call with my last request but a lethal injection wasn't going to do any dignified tricks.. no i had to...

    "daughters of pestilence" i was sleeping

    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...

    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...

    Invitations

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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

    Coming Down~by Me

    I write dark poetry mostly

    because it has a hidden meaning to me. I know the poetry I write is not good but oh well. It only matters what I think of it and what it means to me.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Wandering through the valley of emptiness, Haunted by old demons and new, Trying to escape the loneliness,Can't stop thinking of you, Strolling over the path of a lost mind, My love for you is breaking me,Trying to find a way out,but I'm blind,I shall never be free, walking on...
