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?

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,

Dark Reverie


12 Oct, 2016 12:05 AM
Laying down in sheets of black Satin I wrap it around me, 
so tightly, protecting myself from the evil that is taunting me. 
Trapping myself within the comfort of the silk,
Smelling the fragrance,
The purity, 
Feeling thread by thread being torn from me,
Ripping away, with every memory.

 Entering my mind, unknowingly,
Not realizing that it's just a fantasy,
 Corrupting my mind but so enchantingly,
For if I only realized that I am not just a component of the darkness but I am the darkness,

Darkness to Cannibalism

Hayley Turner

Blood and gore
What a score
But wait...there's more
The darkness seeks you
It wants to eat you
It wants to have you whole.

Blood and gore
What a score 
But wait...there's more
A cannibal's den
You must dine in

The Blade

Hayley Turner

09 Oct, 2016 12:16 AM
The blade through her neck
Blood spills everywhere
A grin spreads wide on the killer's face
Oh the dark gooey blood
Brings a thrill to his bones
The head separated from her body
Oh the blood and the grin and the blade
Of that fateful day
As he stood above her
A grin still spread wide over his ghostly face
Oh the blood and the grin and the blade
Of that fateful day.

The Silent Sea

Lance Barnwell

19 Aug, 2016 01:36 PM
So I slip beneath the waves of the silent sea
And it's such a cold and fucking lonely place to be
I search, I reach out to the glistening surface
But my fumbling fingers can't grasp, can't get no purchase

And you look down on me, with your red eyes glaring
You're refracted black on black, with a hunchback's bearing
And I can't hear, I can't hear a fucking thing
As the jellyfish bob and the stingrays sting

Now my sweet air is leaving in desperate bubbles
Taking with them all of my toils and troubles

~Desolate Wastelands~

Midnyt Ravyn

23 Jul, 2016 08:15 PM
Arriving on horseback 
To this dark desolate 
Barring wasteland 
Where time don't exist 

And that hanging man 
Was one soul this forsaken town 
Showed no mercy and drove 
That man to loneliness and despair 

To prove a point that anyone 
Who comes here will lose their mind

Burying the planet

Rishabh Batheja

Suite 1

Dissonance, envy, wrath
we humans are consuming each other's soul
the soul of the very planet
that keeps us afloat
I am the past
bleak is the present
from future come the shadows
to gulp our serenity
burying us alive
beneath our so-called homes

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Amy Faltot

18 Aug, 2016 11:01 AM
Alone in my own shadow, waiting to find a single day
 To penetrate this foggy atmosphere, I fear I'll find decay
 When the clouds have parted, will I find that I'm a damaged soul
 Or some wooden walls I rest while submerged amongst the soil?
 Still attempting to establish the ground I stand upon but finding cliffs
 I'm too tired to rebuild foundations so I sleep on rocks and sticks
 That's all I get, cause my brain tells me I deserve way less
 All I need is a bullet in the center of my chest

 I tried my hand at alchemy to make myself a heart of gold
 But all I got was arteries collecting copper and molten boring holes
 Inside my veins, I'll paint a faint depiction of my body now
