    The Beast and I The beast is quickly becoming

    part of me And as I slowly decay I become more and more okay With the beast having its way Don't worry young one, I'll get my way too Now that the beast is me

    I watched her labored breathing,

    I held her hand so frail, so small. I heard the weeping of those close by... All those asking why. I knew the time had come, I leaned in very close. I could smell the slightest fragrance of her favorite perfume.... All at once there was silence in the room. My lips now almost...

    The sadness erupts Leaving me still The scars

    of my past visible only to me The loneliness An empty feeling Leaves me reeling As I stare out of my lifeless eyes Waiting to feel my pulse Day turns to night Night turns to endlessness As I feel the weight of the universe Pushing me down Down to the ground

    The sins of my past I try to free They are

    deep within me Well guarded Where no one can see Walls built thick through years of guilt How the puzzle pieces don't really fit To far down Where they can't be found My sins Now within me Will never be free

    The sun is light It also burns So it heals

    but can kill without a second thought. Water is life upon which many seek, But to much and you will sink. A tree provides shade, beauty, and air The leaves fall each season. Then snow comes. A beautiful yet wild thing. Untainted, unmanned, disoriented Yet with each snow flake...

    Title:Death Watching Death.

    Death will find you, encroached in the most sinister of dreams. Clawed, bloody chest marks. Mutilated baby dolls, Screaming…..Screaming….Screaming… hurting…. to hurt, is to be alive. Pain and death entwined, Is to be reborn. Death. Reborn as a parasite, a jester...

    Warren.......Before and during 2010,

    a troubled mindset would re-invent. A once carefree and happy teen, succumbing to pervasive screams. "Desires to kill" began his cries. The death of his Mother gave birth to lies. This mental illness had taken hold, the rest is fact (as will un-fold). Growing up an only child...

    Why do you take fruit

    and rot it? How is it that you run out of meadows? When will it start raining colors besides bloody red?? You can dance on coal, but how about a mirror? Will you be able to stand the sight of yourself?

    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...

    Forever we live, Forever we die.

    Day by day, We own our one lie. Promises are broken, We all give up hope. Alas, however, Who was first to go? Trapped inside, alone and scared. We survive these days, living in fear. Their minds are their home, To see nothing, and always be alone. For a moment, A brave soul...

    Formless Fears

    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.

    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.
