    It Tries To Consume Me

    At some point in my life a switch was flipped and the darkness looked for me. I became its target. It seeks me out and tries to destroy my hope and my soul. I went from a kid spending summers with friends to a kid who spent the whole summer alone in isolation. It never goes...

    And It Once Was Within Me

    The Darkness once resided within me. It taunted me, and ate away at my soul. Its inky black shadows swirled throughout me, chilling me to my very core, no amount of sunshine could warm me, for the ice was from the inside. Although It tortured me, created nightmares beyond your...

    Hella's face is both white

    and black. She reigns in the darkness beneath the roots. She longs for the sick and the old to join her in her realm. Never the place for the brave, or for warriors. Yet Baldur lives there and draws from her minions his tribe to survive the darkness of the Ragnarök.

    ..And I've Clawed My Way Back From The Abyss...Alone...

    Last night I experienced a strange sense of Deja Vu. I was alone for the evening and my depression over the loss of my latest love relationship reached a new level of despair. I was glad when my house-mate left to take his girlfriend home. Having had all their sappy canoodling I...

    Every Time I Look In The Mirror

    There it is, scratching at the surface, begging, pleading for release.  But, I stomp it down, smother it until it's quiet and still.I wonder how long will I be able to keep it at bay before it breaks free?How much longer will I have this peace in my life before all hell breaks...

    Yes, I've seen the darkness

    and fought to keep it from completely consuming my soul. I've experienced it in my dreams even; I have a recurrent nightmare where I am running and something is chasing me. Sometimes the "something" is disguised as a person, but I know it's not because the face is always a blur...

    Darkness Is My Strength

    I used to be full of light,

    but darkness seems to consume me. This is the worst I have felt. I have been enveloped in it's empty arms and I'm losing my will to fight it. I am afraid. Afraid that this broken feeling is all I have left. I miss the light. I miss being surrounded by people and not feeling...

    I have seen it, and I enjoy it.

    But that does not make me a bad person...you don't realize the little gift you got when you dabble in it, but when you do...its the most amazing feeling ever.

    I shaved my soul as the darkness beckoned

    and blatantly strolled. Waving away crescents as I fell into lonely descents. Beautifully consuming, striking my will my fire again fuming.

    It Lives Inside My Mind.

    My mind is a dark, fearful place. I don't like to be there for long periods of time as I find it triggers my own darkness. It feeds off my fears, insecurities, & on the voices from my past. Their words, actions replay inside my head every minute of everyday. I don't get a...

    It's always there. Whispering in my head.

    Wrapped around my soul. Clenching my heart. I was alone when it made it's promises. I believed it, and a part of me still does. It makes me think things I don't want to know. It's been comforting me lately. Wrapping it's shadow around me protecting me. When everything else is...

    Inside Me Is Where It Lives.....

    The darkness lives inside me, breathes death into me. Death of the light that is me. Some days I can pretend it doesn't, but I can feel it winning the battle. Wanting me to give in & end it all. The pain, the fear, the horror of reliving past events as if they're happening...

    Darkness Sanguine.

    I've seen the end before my very eyes. I've seen blood flowing across my temple, blocking out the light, and blinding me. I don't know, or care to know, how I survived that attack. I had resigned myself to what seemed like the inevitable. I was going to die, on a dark street...

    Darkness is a friend of mine.

    I accept, I talk to it (Not literally.) Fear clouds some people's view of the darkness, but not mine. "People who fear the darkness have no idea what the light can do." is an amazing quote, yet I don't have any idea what the light can do even though I'm not afraid of the...

    The Dark I See

    I envy most people. I envy them for how they view the world, for most people see the light. Most people can find joy every day, whereas I see the dark all the time. No one could guess this upon seeing me, I have the perfect poker face to hide how I feel inside. My mask is...

    The Darkness

    I live in a life of fear that my beast will take over me. He is the darkness in my life. everytime I start to go crazy he comes out to play. I try to stop him but he take over me. The only way I can stop him is by starting fires so he can leave me alone.

    What Sleeps There...
