    I Will Take A Shot At It

    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 scars on her wrist Are the story of her

    life A razor kiss When she gave up on her life. Her crys for help That never came Instead she yelpS With the pain. Suicidal thoughts On her mind Like a flowerpot That cracks through time. A little cut To numb the pain Buts instead it Came with rain. Scars cover her thighs From...

    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.

    I am invisible to you

    The artist of hell, she paints with blood,

    Bones become her clay, She uses you as her tool, then throws your broken body away. She seals your soul inside her art then whisks it all away. Another town will feel her power as she turns them all to grey. Make them ash, make them pay. For when she lived among the living...

    Emotional bliss, what a load of ****.

    I write dark poetry. Dark poetry

    for a dark soul :) I am well acquainted with misery. Due to that familiarity, I write dark poems about loneliness, pain, unwanted love, and broken dreams. My poetry stings and it should.
