    Little Girl

    Little girl dreaming of death She's only sixteen but her life is a mess. Sitting up alone all night Feeling these thoughts that she just can't fight. She's up in the bathroom staring at herself in the mirror, She thinks why can nobody hear her!? She takes out her secret box...

    Darkness has always been by my side.

    Pushing me, encouraging me, nurturing me. I am black but comely. Don't look upon me because I was kissed by the sun.

    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 am invisible to you

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
