    Blood moon. Blood moon.

    Running towards that bloody loon. Shadows fall across our eyes. Tonight this torch slowly dies. Sweet Luna goddess of the night. Do not leave us to toil in fright. Black skeletons and rustling sounds. The enemy will hunt and prowl these grounds. Alone I take unto my knife...

    Out Of Hate Does Come Love

    .Uncomfortable. A delicate soul,

    A face of ice, Rose petal skin, Ocean deep eyes. Undressed lips, Locks of fire, Razor blade breath, Heart of barbed wire. Fragile memories, Tongue of thorns, In halls of terror, This creature mourns. One might grasp, Life on a string, Kicking at concrete, A precarious thing...

    warm smiles, tight hugs,

    endless laughter has all turned into dirty looks, middle fingers in the air, and non stop name calling. where did I fail? what happened? darkness has taken over the once sunny and bright dream, that I used to call my life.

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

    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.
