    she speaks of love each word in black her

    tongue of now whispers of past a funeral kiss her touch of wreath again I hold the death of me... her eyes of blue a graveyard stare to share a heart she has no care too soon she'll be hard misery as she succumbs to become the death of me --

    Echoes of his own voice are the silent sounds of

    which a lonely man hears and feels, Standing alone in the church as he respectfully kneels, The only shadow he sees is of himself as we walks down his dark and desolate road, Nobody around to help him carry his heavy load, Dancing by himself in another time and another space...

    Reflecting Me I woke to myself like looking in

    mirror. with dark dead eyes wide open in terror. with skin a dirty white and cuts deep to the bone. Teeth rooted and deformed and black tongue were shown. Hands coveres in blood, fingers ripped and nails torn. palms slashed and black veins fold out like a horn. Bloody tears...

    The depths of the stars in the sky could never

    hide, The pain, the shame, That I hide beneath the smile in my eyes, And the nightmares, They continue to wake me, Leaving a trail of tears along my face, Some escaping to my hands, Leaving invisible marks of the churning emotions below the smile in my eyes.

    Imagine yourself Alone in your head You're

    Every day is an endless blur of memories

    and broken dreams, Living life against my pillow upon my bed, nothing left to be said, Scattered thoughts filling up my empty head, Existing again just watching the wheels roll by, The wheels are moving round and round, Forever yearning to be found, Hazy shadows on my wall...

    I am invisible to you

    Darkness falls like a weight Clouding my

    Today is National Poetry day in the UK,

    so I wanted to share this. I see the words of many men Who speak as though their deeds are sacred I see the very hearts of saints. Who’ve turned from love now into hatred I see the sky above turn black The rivers empty, oceans red I see an enemy everywhere Both in the street...

    An old man sits upon a well,

    Reminiscing days of hell. And in the sun that starts to rise, He leaves the world in great surprise. As he slips into the deep, Starting with his own two feet. He disappears into the dark, Of the well within the park. As he falls without a scream, He slowly drifts into a dream...

    "My journey to hell" I thought I had friends,

    I really did, That was my mistake. I put a knife to my throat, A gun to my head, "Any objections?" "No?" "Ok" The knife slides like butter across my throat, The bullet tears through me, As I'm bleeding out, Do I see a helping hand? No of course not, I'm just am extra in...

    Angelic Reaper

    I feel your presence slowly creep, As if my soul you came to reap. The fear infects my thoughts so deep, I feel you watching as I sleep. The apparition fills my door, Sending shivers through my core. Too terrifying to ignore, As she moves across my floor. She takes her place...

    Misery loves company. Company loves misery. Misery is in our souls. Misery is the dark water we drink. Misery is the hell we are all fear.

    He Is Me

    there is a creature that comes from a place where there is no hope or joy. The air itself is filled with misery. His heart is filled with a sadness that words really cannot depict. He walks among you but you would never noticed him. He is me.
