Take my hand,
Drips of tears.
Lead me out of here.

Tears continue to pour.
I start to fade away.
What was once Bright,
quickly turns Black.
My heart?

You are not human;
you are a poltergeist
trapped in a meat suit.
Tea leave salves,
moonlight strolls,

these calm your restless spirit.
You possess a skeleton
but you are not made of bones.
Cartilage fades without you,
flesh slips away,
blood solidifies a corpse.

crunch Goes Their Skull

(to the sound of pop goes the weasel)

Chase them round the town at night.
Their presence seems revolting.
Break their ankles with a hammer.
Then cave their skulls in.
Drag the body back down the road.
Avoiding other people.

If someone happens to see you though.
Then pop goes that weasel.
You may ask, what's the point?

Hide it


03 Apr, 2014 02:59 PM
Where are the marks?
Where is the pain?
I see you smiling now,
But it's all the same.

You hide behind,
That mask you wear,
I wear one too,
It's beginning to tear.

Snide remarks,
And a hateful tone,

A "Loving" God


03 Apr, 2014 12:38 AM
Life is such a beautiful thing we say.
To the artist, how can we ever repay?
Shall we be your toys, oh lord? 
for you, shall we entertain?
Please pay us no heed lord,we thank you for your disdain.

You need not speak lord,we are not worthy of such attention.
Like loyal pets; we lick your hand,
even if it is the source of our infliction.
War, molestation, famine, and disease

only strengthen our faith in you.

The Attraction of the end


02 Apr, 2014 02:11 AM
The trickle of blood can be so intriguing.
Just as bullets can enchant a weakened mind.
They can pull at the heartstrings or create butterflies in your stomach.
Even scramble your mind, preventing you from speaking.

To a weak mind, even the simplest of ropes can look so comforting.
Your stomach drops as you feel like your falling through space.
You stand so high and in an instant your feet are almost on the floor.
And you look down to see your thoughts leave you and your floating through darkness.

Many find the view a top a building or cliff to be picturesque.
They stand and spread their arms, breathing in deeply, ready to take just one step.

Oh little Generaless


28 Mar, 2014 01:04 AM
Here I am
At the midnight hour.
The blood on this knife,
fills me with power.

A wondering soul
as it passes the gates,
is suddenly snatched
by the one who waits.

They must be collected,
every last one.

As i sat upon those dank old stairs,
where i met a man who wasn’t there,
With cold dead eyes and a toothy grin,
He held my hand as thou light grew dim,
He whispered in my ear and took my pain,
And made a deal as it began to rain,

My soul to take i did offer the,
But instead he sat me a top his knee,
you will live forever for what you have done,

and strive to be the man you should become,

I'm so alone, but there's no way back
If you can hear me, I'm trapped in the black
He came to see me, the uninvited guest
And with his scythe he crushed my chest
Then he mocked me with his slow hand clapping
As I lay there, my last breaths gasping

I fell from life to a place called dead
The lights went out, but my pneuma fled
If this is the norm I cannot tell
I'm not close to heaven, but near to hell
There's no ticking clock, no time to gauge

The Final Cut


19 Mar, 2014 04:23 PM
I am lost soul 
No where to go 
Darkness all around 
Like the cuts on my skin
The blade sits before me mocking me 
i need it i want it
i long to see my skin swell and bleed
i slowly take the blade 
First cut will be my last
As i cut into my vein 
My blood drips 
i dont scream or cry
My Final Cut kills me tonight
