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?

Eternal Scream


22 Feb, 2017 03:30 AM
Last night I saw the flame of candlelight flicker from a window and the flame did grin,
From my balcony and afar I've seen the sign that could be within.
Laces tied and a cigarette upon my lip,
Down the stairs and across the courtyard time for a short trip.
The flame called to me and drew me closer like a moth so confused,
Stumbled forward this body, this soul now greatly abused.
The flame danced to the left and then to the right,
Beautiful flame I am almost there guided by your candlelight.
Up the stairs but I took a moment before my first step of the climb,
Wish darkness could last forever frozen in the sands of time.
I approached the door which was expectedly closed and I did knock,
No one answered so I opened it - this door had no lock.

A Serpent's Crusade


22 Feb, 2017 03:29 AM
When they first met this brown fox did smile without fear,
The serpent slid forth upon the grass and lifted his head up high he made his intentions very clear.
"Serpent," the Fox winked to the snake he did accede,
The Serpent replied, "You and I Fox are the same our prey we will mislead."
Serpent as you slither your a master of disguise.
One takes sides with the devil and the other is only loyal to himself.
Fox you are so sly as you live your life in lies.

"Snake I have no quarrel with you and ask to be left alone,"
"I do not question your authority or the darkness you call your throne."
"Fox you will side with me one way or the other,"

Let Me Be


22 Feb, 2017 03:28 AM
Let me be good when I smile and show no teeth,
Hidden away a dark secret these lips underneath.
Will take a bullet, a slice from a blade,
Pull you from a fire, off the tracks from a speeding train to keep up this charade.
So when you see me when the sun lights up the day,
Make sure you get home before dark please don't get lost and become astray.

Let me be evil as I observe the environment around,
I will approach you from your flank, your front it doesn't matter you have been found.
Trust us if you wish for we do not necessarily wish you wrong,
Maybe a night out can turn you - bring you along.

Heart of Night


10 Dec, 2016 12:26 AM
The heart of the night is such a sight.
With every beat your soul asleep.
In the gloom, may mark your doom.
Your darkest fears unite.

Shadows take the form of light.
The moon in late noon.
Still marks your doom.
For words can't express to pain of day.
For lingering eyes burn from light.

Day is gay, but my light is Night.

One day I woke up from sleep
And you were not beside me.                             
I looked for you around the house,       
Called you name but got back none.

Could see undone dishes from the last night                                                                   
Stilettos and broken bottles still beneath the bed                                                                  
 But you were gone.                                                   
Your soothing aroma was still fresh               
Yet your absence baffled me.

Suddenly I found myself in this pit of Hell,

Help Me?


02 Nov, 2016 07:47 PM
Blood drips from my eyes
Tears flow from my veins
Strangle my feelings
Hurt me
I beg of you
Take away my pain
Don't make me live another day
I live this life for you
But why when I don't want to?

Screams, Screams, fill my head
Help Me!, they beg

A Life's Creation

kilee ketola

23 Oct, 2016 07:33 AM
Dark but whole, broken yet sane.
Hoping one day love will erase all the pain.
Simple and complex, also free with violence on my mind,
All that triggers my evil within, making it harder to find.
An unknown innocence replaced a twisted side so dark, yet a star is so bright in the sky,
A  yes even the darkness can't take away, and when it should have asked why.
A scapegoat with scars from a razorblade that cut across her skin,
I will always remain beautifully broken, outside and within.

Towards the Light

Silent world
Quiet night
The darkness
Forms within

The pain
The tears
They never seem
To stop

It's quiet
It's dark

Cancer in the Heart


13 Oct, 2016 07:48 AM
Rotten like the sheep flesh being stewed,
Disgusting as maggots eating thy flesh,
Ugly like the cancer in my heart, 

Why such creature exists in this Earth?

The reminder of the sin you committed, 
The hate you have shown upon me, 
I am the "thing" you hold depraved and 

Grown and nurtured into a pot of wrath,
