In life we are given many tokens of worldly greatness,Staring us in the eyes through a mist,A dark fog with nowhere to see anything in front of us,Except for those objects that are inanimate.
How strange it is to see you here, even after all these years? Come, have you, to see me now, to see me lying in my cask? Have you come to mourn me now, or have you to degrade me once more?

Jack Frost is nipping at my nose. Well more like biting. Well more like chewing my flesh till it bleeds. My ears are burning in the icy wind. They may break off any second.

In my mind, the time rewinds--to moments, to memories,
Your writhen thoughts had unexplainable august about them, I wonder from what this could stem? They have remarkable semblance to knotted fingers, The way each twines into my mind and lingers, Drawing me in,

Bloodshot digits awaken from below,
I prize my gift from the sun, the smooth ebony blanket that trails in my path. It bears the token of my progress, like a toll booth of past endowments, always full of unanswered prayer.
My dearest best friend,
Why do we wake up? Humans are evil . Humans are dumb. Humans can think yes. But only of what suits them best. Humans walk beside the rest of us. Forgetting they are the rest of us
Reality is plagued with cruelty which we try to escape in every way.Constantly seeking a new exit from the present distaste,We find hideous pleasures in the most unrecognizable treasures.
Heroes can only be stars If they have a night sky To shine against But I never asked To be the darkness
Though darkly inspired

Weightless happy euphoria A cloud filled with wistful thoughts Breathless whispers That mask the sliver of darkness So sharp that it cuts slits In the fabric of their lives But I am gone

See the clouds
Today I say good morning to the sun! Usually it is the sun that wakes me up every single day. But today is special... At six a.m. it is I smiling down as the Sun Stirred from his deep, deep slumber.

My Community is often called dark. We are often mistaken as rundown. However we are the ones with the spark.
On the bed and on the bathroom counter I lost track of time, maybe two hours? I completely devoured the passion you were incredibly lacking and got a high of pure satisfaction

"A Darkened Heart" By: Lilly Van Sickle
I live in the dark,
Sometimes the nasty nature
the warm white tide Your footsteps in the sand, They’re only temporary, Soon to fill with seawater, Flushed orange with the last Lost rays of shimmering daylight.
Sometimes, sometimes when I find… That my voice is so tiny, so especially paltry. I can’t help but think how reality seems so bleak. It seems like nothing, Not even a spark of

In the blackest of the night, It glides through the overgrown grassand threw the sewers under the city streets.It swallows the minds of innocents.It rips into the lost souls.
The fiendish desire to die lurked in the depths of the innocent. Lost little souls with nowhere to go with their perception all crooked and bent.
The light flashes. Blinks, constantly, in the dark room.

There is nothing
When I'm left alone, Every doubt and question comes to mind. Every single ounce of my depression, Roars its ugly face, And racks every inch of my body. I'm floating in old memories, Old mistakes...
A darkness falls here behind eyes of silver crystal shimmering blue in a once present flare
I Am The Wolf, Quite And Sleek, You'll Never Find Me, No Matter How Long You Seek. I Hide In The Shadows, For You No Not Witch One, But I'll Make Sure You See Me Smiling,
In this darkness I fall
Faster than dark, from disillusioned skies Of sable silk, the stars release their grasp, Descending into bitter winds that rasp Against the feathers of a night who flies Faster than silence born of memories
Life is a shadowShifting, shaping, twistingInto braided ropesThat wrap around the throat andTugBending over window ledgesCurling into gnarled talons that Grasp at your heart to
Once upon a timeIn a land not far far awayIs a girlSitting in the windowTears rolling down her faceLike the rain on the glass
Violent screams, tears dripping from

The darkness and light struggles within,Can't imagine where to begin.Seeing through clouds of darkness and dispare,One wonders what to do from there.Bright eyes pierce the soft soul,
At first, it flickers, blinking in face of the world's bright lights.With fear it strengthens, as not to be left behind.Gently waving, emitting its own light, growing, stealthily growing
I've always been here, if you needed me. Although you never even noticed my prescence.
The darkest room.The dearest soul.Finds comfort in its blackest holdThe world turned hard.The broken heart.Finds refuge in the silent darkThe lost and lonely.Lightless and faint.
A man walks down a white road. He sees a child fallen on the street corner. He tries to assist, she's too afraid- of what? He sees a man with a sign - black with white letters- "in need"- of what?
I hear a faint dissonance travel You again, in homely tears I am the wet nurse at your disposal; So, let me be drained by the frenzy of desperation . . . . Crusade along the barren land,
Dead man walking Sentened by the boss Look who's talking Sorry for the loss Dead man walking We'll get there somehow But where are we now? Let's get rolling
To anyone: I’m vomiting now, a violent revulsion, My self-made punishment from silent compulsion. Weeks turned to months as I sought isolation,
My dog is my only friend I know it might be hard to apprehend But my dog is my one true friend We go for walks And she listens to me talk And talk
Say it isn't so Vagabond Your heart is never there You wander endlessly without a care
Sitting in a room full of people but nobody can hear your scream. Walking down the halls alone as if you were in a horrible dream.
Running. running. Always running. Never back. Only forward. Never down. Only up. Running. Always running. From the past. To the future. From the street.
Light rain. Gentle moon. Perfect bliss, outside of this room... The night is calm, but my heart is not. For the deed I have done is one that cannot be undone. She was my love, she was my life,
Puffy eyes; sleep deprived.
Oh, mama End me because when you sent me to ground, my lungs caved in I dug my own hole, shovel in hand, but when I looked back at you, mama, you threw me in, and the door slammed shut
The Whitest Soul I may be,
Like ebony feathered ravens --squawk, caw squawk-- beaks sharp as talons talons sharp as hawk’s They prey on the weak, the strong, and the brave, the boisterous, the silent,
Black and blue colorsof the dark huesof the night sky.Twinkling, glittering starssprayed all around the skylike art on canvas.Blurry reflectionon the river water of amagnificent moon.
One morning I woke to the sound of my Family's despair, and I ready myself for the day ahead and descend down my aunt's stairs. Why me? I asked myself sorrowfully.
There is a low in our life sanction call low of love and discussion People start to speak foreign language Thought become blur more Brain write the bath of sorrow
It's just another day, still hanging by a thread. When I open my eyes, to see a pillow and a bed.Where I lay my head, I think to myself thank god I'm still alive and not found dead.
Joy given by the pain bestowed upon those I crush under my thumb, tortured screams and moans are my music and illness of mind my muse
Its dark, its cold, theres no way out every space of light seems to be occupied by its own form of witchcraft I walk on this world with no stablilized path the lukewarm presense of the present life
There is a madman on the wall Where he hangs with sticky fingers. And in his quick-silver hand Lies a locket made of whispers.
o you know what the reason you live for do you know the real secrets of realty are we know why we all exist in this worldis the seeking for money or looking for fucking namesor anther laying god maybe we will be lying larder do we really know what
An ocean of my blood and tearskilling me with my own fears.I let myself drownin all this misery.You can trybut I won't let you save me.
Loneliness A dark pit of despair Endless and dark Twisting spirals of madness Where despair becomes a physical pain Unto the heart A quiet solitude A certain empty silence
we love to observe the angels the gods the light we love to pick out our beauties especially in those we adore. this is why love fails.

Dark to light. light to dark.hence my soul becomes a spark.benevolence is as benevolence doesto light/extinguish the fire between all of us (April 1, 2011)
Shadowed dark skies roar over head, as I lay here dreaming in my bed. In my mind I stand in a field of flowers, and I become lost in daydream for countless hours. I'm surrounded by dark colors and hues,
I struggled against my restraints I was forced here, into a cage I wasn't meant to be locked away I have things to do, Places to see, People to meet
We know you can see them. Your eyes on your desk, your pen in your hand, your lips glued together, and your eyes defiantly shut, We know you can see them. They are the quiet ones, the loud ones,
Left in then darkness In the corner of my mind Are my dark secrets
And it's really sad, how this all worked out. I watched the scene alter, watched it all fall down. With a tear or two, maybe three. I can feel them drowning, or is it me?
When the darkness falls And the day slips away There’s nothing you can do To keep the demons at bay As the day turns to dusk And the night creatures roam There’s nothing you can do
The sky turns dark A deep black falls upon us. The angels cry as the Earth pushes further away from the Golden Gates. Twenty centuries of deep sleep. The great hands try to shake
To one who darest contend mortal fate Woe are my grev’ous sins before the fire The screams of my vexed soul doth not abate Leaving me forever trapped in the mire
As I stand here, at Ground ZeroI reflect on what happened all those years agoSo many bitter memories on my mindFrom the day I escaped with just my lifeI should be a dead man, I shouldn't be alive

I walk among the childrenSome young and some oldLike the oak tree in myGrandfather’s house. The wind ruffles the leaves.It is a foggy fall night.Im not alone.At least I tell myself I’m not.
The cave fish swim Round and round Going nowhere Blind in the dark Most have no eyes But one fish sees Sees the blackness Feels the hopelessness The fish with eyes
I arrived out of the dark night Runnin', runnin' Runnin' for my life, I saw left I saw right I forgot what was right Then I decided to go left Going left was going deaf
The room goes cold The door squeaks open And footsteps grow louder A hand grabs the covers
Happiness doesnt always fall upon you, you have to choose it and then persue it. 7 years ago, my world darkened, my eyes were opened to how bad people really were,
It was the coward's way out, he knew. He could feel it rolling around in his gut like a stupidly cheerful puppy.
Every time I sleep; pains on my brain’.Abolishing my heart n soul lord escort my vein.From the bounded clouds of this mournful pain.I can’t predict the weather nor the range of the rain.But hope for the station of this moving train.Thou death is s
Dark is not a beautiful walk on the beach. Dark is a daunting walk through the forest of hands and teeth. Dark is a vampire sucking that little hint of life from your God-forsaken soul.
Took an hour to write... Enjoy :) Poetry is an art, my imagination's the canvas. The lyrics I breathe're pure, but bear evil thoughts of a savage. Demonic practice; without a leash I bet I murder the masses.
My life is a lie. Every day is a challenge As I put on a show for those closest to me. I was taught that these feelings inside me are wrong.
Come, don’t be afraid. Travel into the Distance on the path that curves into Nothing and bends into eternity. Be with me As I walk into the core of the silence
Things come and change The Darkness will comfort you Do not fret Do not cry All you have to do is call one guy. Speak of the Devil, And the Devil shall appear.
A pit of fire. Cast bones into the pit and interpret the signs. Summon the devil from the pit and worship his kind. Flee, Logic! Flee, Reason! You are a bladeless knife, a pointless rapier; You are worthless!
There lie Eli, face-down. His lip was split open, red with blood all around. Rib cage busted Eyes bruised with the brown of his eye looking glazed and rusted
Cold, dark A soft blackness Stars dot the midnight sky Somewhere, a tiny creature awakes Dawn comes
Cold, dark A soft blackness Stars dot the midnight sky Somewhere, a tiny creature awakes Dawn comes

I'm swimming in a sea of saddness, running out of breath. Although it seems I've spotted shore, I'm always wrong: it's never near. I wish I'd sink or be attacked, at least then I'd feel something.
We were like a bright and sunny day, But a dark cloud hovered and you became gray. Once sitting and laughing until we cried, Now something happened, our flower died. I wondered if things were better would we still be okay?
Hinging everything so delicately One wrong move, everything will fall and fail. It is the price to pay to deal with me. I will keep you close from all that will ail Only a small price to pay, no big deal
Wicked hearts so vast and hollow Heartless eyes set on the morrow Greedy, grasping, never to miss Hunger endless as an abyss Twisting, turning, a tangled weave Washed on beaches of filthy eve
At first, it was disconcerting; The feeling of being unable to rest. Now, I am comforted by it. My mind, it never sleeps-- Never quiets-- Never stops-- Never dies. I can feel it;
My thoughts sprawl across the night,even with closed eyes.I wish I could pluck little memories,and throw them miles away.They dance playfully in and out of my mind,confusing what is real.
Three Fates fathomed a fellow to figure Facsinating that which is feral and foul To be fervid and satisfying; A furious felicity. Three moaning eyes, muttering movements of demise,
Did you ever wish you can turn back time To that one scene in your life. When listening to your head just didn’t seem right?
I can see, but I am blind. I can hear, though I am deaf. I can speak, yet I am mute. I find myself wandering, like a spirit, Walking the same path over. I cannot tell if a dream has taken me
corners combined, edges bleeding together, like a puzzle pieces fit together; Jigsawed sides Slash lines In each other’s Faces. A buyer,
I am old, My hair is gray, My skin is wrinkled. I am young, My blonde curls dance in the light, My youth shines on my face. I am holding a shovel. One pile of dirt
What is freedom? Is it the light I see in this dark place? Is it just a word, or do I give the meaning to it? Is it the feeling of floating freely in poisonous water?
It covers everything It is our friend and enemy It shields our faces Our emotions and devestations It knows our fears It creates our fears We tell it everything,and we we tell it nothing
Our World... Rapacity! Where Men usurp the youth. Men who manifest greed, lust, power Illimiuniting Freud's Id through actions Alas! The youth replicate their Teachers. Cloned as the Men
I am from the southern part of Dayton, Ohio. I am from my dad and granddad because my dad has anger management And because my grandparents didn't want children, And when I was born I was real sensitive on the inside
Ever feel like your trapped In a bottomless hole so deep but yet comfortable to your new surrounding familiar with the dark walls and the ordinary smell that become your only companions
Light and Dark walked together one cold winter's night under the shining face of the moon, full and bright. On this night they could walk arm in arm As old comrades might, forgetting their differences.
To begin something, with a blank mind to begin somthing, where only time can tell you if it's what you thought only time spent, to figure what you've bought. Most people never begin,
Here here, come come, I say I say Thou sullen traveler, ye irksome stray. Where forego thy errands lie,Whither thou goest over stone and under sky,To reach what destination thereby?
It’s the last time you’ll see him. He’s pale with closed eyes. He used to make you happy, But now all you do is cry. You cry over what was, And what won’t ever be. You cry because you realize

Why I Write. Well, I write because my lips are sealed, Im speechless, The words on the paper stab at my meekness and rips open my flesh, Only to show that the outside is decent but the inside is a mess.
I use to sit alone in my dark room surrounded by clouds of dark thoughts My life was so cold back then and I kept thinking I couldn't last too much further on
Hands lock, fingers curl. Eyes twitch. Just a few of the many things we do together. When walking on the beach, seagulls high above us. People waving hello as we get higher,
We live a life with knowledge that death must come.The days of fall are gravenThe leaves fall upon the barren ground, the ravenCalls out in the midnight sun.
Silent, bright-eyed, constantly watchingThe holes in darkness for a time stay lastingBut when time dies down all matter changesThe gaps are sewn, it rearranges
My private thoughts are my worst enemy Things that shouldn’t roam my mind, do. Eventually it becomes too much So I open my mouth And when I do, all my thoughts flow out
Life; It is something to be cherished and treasured Something to put your all into
Patient and silent, I will wait Shrouds of shinister figures, beckoning Cloaked in darkness, I will wait Into the depths of the forboding abyss Neither friend nor foe, I will wait
When I look at my life as an outsider would, I see that it looks rather boring. Dull. Insignificant. The fact of the matter is, I am not a genius An athlete A prodigy
Just one quick motion, One quick slit down the wrist. That’s all she needed to ease her pain She never considered how others felt How I felt I thought that I could light the darkness that grew in her heart
The kindness in the smile of a little girl. Fearless and free...the world not yet clawing away her freedom to love, sees through eyes as clear as the sea with an embrace as warm as the sun.
Orange... It's the color of you You always wore it It's the color we shared As we hid from them With it we showed our true selves, Though no one cared As our orange bookbags
Nothing last forever, The oceans will dry, Leaves and flowers wither, Monuments fade, and men do too. What is life will not stay, What is death grants only reprieves,
Darkness It creeps around me It surrounds me Everything is dark Hurt and pain engulf me They rearrange my story There is no hope I open my eyes to find a glimpse of something.
His white muzzle is concealed in crimson The rogue at his feet heaves its last breath Sure of its death he limps away Back to his pack He must defend them Whatever the cost Blood drips from a leg
Smoldered eyes stare back in a glaze Her purple lips and skin like a maze The icy touch of Death is bare The color of death in her strands of hair Her flesh now paler than snow As she lie in her grave below
The world is spinning too fastI can’t keep up at allI try to reach for help butI find myself falling Can anybody helpPut me back together?I can’t stop fallingFurther into darkness
They built these walls to protect me At least that's what they said. "Monsters, demons and darkness live Beyond these high stone walls" Entrigued I was by their small fact
If I were to lose you now I don't know where I'd be. You took your last bow On the stage where you once felt free. My tears would become streams, With horrible feelings; the colour black.
A grim reflection of skin and bones Tearing her apart with self-hatred Magazines covered with beauty She only wishes she could be like them The mirror tells her lies
Why do I write? Writing has become a part of my life. Through my sinister days, writing was there the day of my wake. Tragedy after tragedy, lost in a deep dark hole, writing was there, and it became my home.
oh my dear...There's a lot of girls whom I could seekeach one without a peep.The markings of tributes on my wallThe red stained of love on my cheekAs I stand on my feetProclaim my love for the one I speak.
sitting here all alone...No one to hold me tight. As the frowning comes,the tears appear...the razor comes out...I notice, its clean no blood, no skin, nothing
Camera, cameras, flash. Click, Click, snap. The people all stare but it’s my job not to care. She tells me I’m pretty, he tells me I’m fine. But it’s always there, in the back of my mind.
See the masked skeletons of undead slaves march varnished spirits welded together by the sins of their past through the smog they trudge
Deep underwater Remnants of the past twinkle Trapping all who grasp for their comfort The cold, unforgiving comfort Of a wanted past And a watery future.
People are ignorant, thinkng she wont run away into the cornfield She screams, shes online, she hides under her protective shield Shes hiding away in the cornfield She posts, no one cares, her wounds unhealed
She is tumbling, cascading, silently spiraling into a tunnel of hopelessness. you are too dark! you're not pretty enough! she desperate for comfort.
Asleep; I tremble and shakeWishing I were awakeAwake; I shake and trembleSeeing how my nightmare seems to resembleThis place as bleak as hellYet here I continue to dwellWaiting for the sweet breathThe sweet breath of Death So when my life does cea
Cold, green grass buried under bare feet, Shivering, squirming to get loose, to be free, Wiggling up between toes, afraid of being trapped. Rasping against skin, embedded into the bones
Don’t you know that you are mine? Has God not told you yet? He wrapped our souls in endless vines So love, forgive and then forget Let’s dance you say? You fidget, squirm Let’s dance in love instead!
Night. A time filled with darkness. Darkness. Close your eyes and you will know. But, true darkness surrounds you, you can feel its prescence,
You won't take the time. So you don't know. She has a good heart. But through her exterior that doesn't show. All you can see is the poverty that her family has been cursed with.
You sicken me that time in my past, when you played with me like I was a puppet a show for all of hell to see. My motions little, my emotions running rapid like the heart beat in my chest
She paints her lips rouge Donning the black dress and matching hat Putting on pumps and a veil She is going to a funeral Bidding farewell to her final betrayal This entity has no heartbeat
One cut. Two cut. Three cut. Four. How many cuts until I'm at death's door?
And dancing, they were, The two girls, and the boy Caring not about time, That seemed not to pass by They noticed not, that not a stare
I nonchalantly sat their alone while the night sky fell upon me, while rodents ran past my feet. The stench of overfilled trash dumpster and the worlds left over garbage of people sat near by.
And I was just wondering if you saw it too The green bile behind all these smiles Coming up up up Starting up up up
Secretly the moon dances with the stars, Across the night sky, They shift and glitter against the darkness of life, Two dancers in love as their love shines down. Maybe in the moon's silver gaze, We too,
The wind whips within The windows, whining To be free, falling, frozen In time forever, But it bows out because Its blood is too thin Or maybe much too thick For this warm morning
As I grew older, my mind became bolder With every touch of passion, I become clutched I began to write when I began to reason reality, a creative formation status of my full mentality
Shots are being fired, but it's all in my head The stabbing memory that nothing was said The screaming inside is getting so loud I'm just waiting for that final silence to kill of my rage, the dirt, the dark black cloud
Come wonder with me, Where the stars combust into thousands of colors and fall down, So swiftly and so silently, Against the winds cries, Will you follow me? Follow your feet,
Unsurpassed, unwavering, unthinkable fear. There is no assurance of tomorrow. Any known stability, ripped from my grasp. The voices without end. There is no escape! They will be coming for me. Too late!
Terror and fright consume me: Light leaves and dark trails behind me. I am forever alone with no one near or close, In this secluded island, I stand morose.
Heart thrumming Blood pulsing Mind racing Thoughts raging Demons pounding At my door Becoming one of them Once more.
Never forget who you are Thats what my mother told me That advice took me far Unfortunately that couldn't be.
(poems go here) There once was a man named Ted, Who decided one night to look under the bed. What he saw, it seemed, Really made him scream. And now, he has no head.
My blood runs cold, My thoughts are dark, But you already know, And I've left my mark. Even knowing this, You can't stay away. You wanted one kiss, Now keep yourself at bay.
Stenches from take-out restaurants and people who should shower more often, Looking up to the sky only when buildings pointed that way, Crack heads and crazies and crooks eyes follow me as I pass, Enter the building,
What makes the hair on your arms rise, your palms sweat, the breath catch in your chest like a wild thing caged? Is it the dark? A fleeting memory of a bed ime story,
Amidst gothic bewitchery and roaring seascape, I delve into the cryptic conscience of primal instinct, shadows sprawled behind, mouth agape, Of trivial human things I could hardly think.
Perching on rocks in the mountains, Looking over the people below. Watching, waiting With the keys in his mouth. The keys to the underworld. Ravens watch for souls to come by.
Dark, my limbs struggle through There is nothing to prove That the emptiness around me Isn't empty Where does it end? Where do I begin?
I look at the mirror and see a face I so hate to see. Take the tape, measure 'bout my waist Compare the scale at my feet. 170, it says, so I will change it.
Get away from me. I don't want you to visit again. Last time nearly killed me. The pain; the crying. The worthlessness.
In the black of night the fear is found, An om'nous glowing Baskervillian Hound. To fight it is to stay awake and pray, And wait for comfort from the dawn of day.
Although the tunnel isn't so dark My heart is still empty Soon I will embark on a journey That will take me away, Away from my current darkness It will change my view And lighten my mood
A dark hole called home, but it's not even mine. Not living only existing, no hope, no worth, dealing with what I've been dealt. Keep it all inside, the words inside my mouth. We'll all be the same, lying in the dirt.
I search endlessly into the dark abyss that is my heart. Yearning for that one light, but as I run, grasping for it, the light begins to fade. As I scream, crying out for it to stay... It vanishes. All I see is blackness.
As I lay awake in bed at night My secrets haunt me, devil’s delight Though invisible, they’re plain in sight Stenciled images in black and white They scream and wail, unending fight
I’m afraid, To let people See the tears roll uncontrollably Down my face Each one mimicking the last. And, I don’t want To have to face them And show them that I feel.
Feeling a depth of despair inescapable, an entangled mindweb is my dwelling and my tongue tastes of bitter longing.
As my face turns cold and dark I felt the darkness swallowing me whole It lifted me up and made me invisible Inside the deep hole, it erases my memories And fills it with its own memory
Love is blind yet it sees the most Are you fearful because you can't run away when you're uncomfortable? The beast in you is the monster in me You tear me to pieces but it sets me free
Death, you that lurk in the shadowy night You come as fast as you go like the wind cold and illusive you fill me with fright The sunlight goes dim for the souls that you lend
What is loneliness? One might ask Is it a black hole? Destroying Annihilating Everything around it Leaving nothing behind
The feeling of my mind carrying the burden of all of the weight of the cement bricks hanging unwantedly from my eyelashes.
On the dark cliffs full of shadows The river is rushing, the water crashing Headed towards the inevitable fall
Can you bring light to the dark? The darkness creeps in holding fear and regret, Fear can grab you and take you away from you natural life. Regret will make you seem as if you’re worthless and have no meaning.
Sonnet 1. As I pass out to this strange brand new world I sense my form go cold and freeze to bone A man comes up using a ring of a lord He grabs my arm, but shadow comes and I’m alone
