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?

My sins have risen
landing me in a prison 
Darkness dwells 
In the corner of my cell
Hope has fled
And trust is dead  
There is no humanity
Only insanity

Innocence is not alive anymore
It is something I thrive for
It is no longer attainable

"Creating the division between thought and reality
Depriving my source of purity
Walking the plane of my own discord, of which there is no end

Reaching the cliff in comfort
I look down upon what awaits me
There is no Darkness, Isolation or Woe
For I reciprocated the concept, living in illusion

One step over as my body drops 
For I am not falling, rather flying
Flying into bliss

I'm Back

Dillon (Blood Tears)

14 Apr, 2015 04:08 AM
I sat alone dreaming, 
Playing with the blade when they started talking again
Whispers of games to be played,
Screams of others joy at the thought
Voices urging me on,
To continue where I left off
After days of silence I thought they died,
So I sat and waited for the ghosts to wake
Oh, they had just slept!

They haven't been fed, loved or played with
I haven't shown them the beauty they deserve.

Unforeseen shadow people attack me

Jack Sorenson

26 Jul, 2015 01:55 AM
The Orbs are this first warning
As the orbs turn black, I worry
Only then, and be ready for the outcome ahead

The three long scratches were my arms could never reach 
Show up in the morning mirrors in the bathroom
Where I could never reach to do this in my life
Who’s the shadow people?

To my thinking they are demons that have fallowed
Me due to my past sines,
And keep an eye on me daily

Why am I here?
I have no purpose,
No reason to live-
Am I even alive?

Why don't I fear
Pain or death?
I have nothing to give,
nothing to recieve
Why can't I feel

The Curse of Nyx.

Pride Ed

18 Jun, 2015 07:28 PM
Amidst the blackness of a frost-covered glen,
Charon sought the help of his darkest kin:

“Beautiful Nyx, I elicit thee
For thy shadow’s baleful trickery!
A night hath worshiped thine darkling sin.
Prithee, dear Nyx... Come unto me.”

“Dearest Charon, who calls me with glee,
Why hast thou summoned me?”

Styx of the Frozen Waste.

Pride Ed

18 Jun, 2015 07:30 PM
Awaken this fire of the coldest hell;
Dammed and draining of souls to quell
The ravenous darkness of this abysmal sleep.
None here protected; just souls to reap!
Adrift in this river of frozen blood;
Her corrosive veins wandered though crimson flood!
Hell hath her cruelty; such violence and wrath
Floating along this slippery path!
Then came her hushed whispers from the depths of the frost;
Her hungry tongue danced as it licked at the lost:

“Hell coarsen though veins

Stone Wall

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

Stuck, encassed in the monastery, A ghost of years gone by,
Contemplative life of silence, by choice,
Prayer inside stone walls.

Arches leading to flourishing vegetable gardens,
Toiling daily.

Early morning chanting,
Simple meals,
Itchy sack cloth.

Riders came for King and country, came stole and destroyed,

Hurried in on a trolley, sound of sirens still ringing,
Driven into a sterile cubicle with machines,
My dry lips forced apart, suffocating as the tube is forced down my throat,
Something snaps onto my finger, beeping,
Pads placed on my body, so cold, so very cold,
Buzzing, muffled words, the room darkens.

No more pain, freedom, a light freedom coarses through me,
I see my shell laying below, frozen,
Surrounded by panicked medics, why are they worried?
Higher I drift, floor after floor,
Someone's lost their coat on the fifth floor!
