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

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

Hallows of the night

Hallows of the night

Searching for more like myself facing my own doomed
 to feel the dead calling myself for a recantation
to hear them, the beating heartbeat
coming forward to me, calling me for help

Now too be heard by myself
to meet up on this night
at the Hollow’s of the darkness
 of the moons darkness night

imprisoned

Anthony Kamm

Creeping and crawling away in the dark,
Something is living within my heart.
High beyond the attic door,
There is a creature who screams with a mighty roar.

Writing alone in the dark by candlelight,
It whispers to me and gives me the frights.
Its horrifying tales are filled with gore,
Oh, how I wish I could write no more.

These dreaded tales of a world no more,
I am imprisoned by this wretched whore.

Him

Ambrose K. Madoc

26 Apr, 2017 07:24 PM
He lurks in the shadows
Hiding
Waiting
Hiding from me
Waiting from me
I sense him
Anxiety signals him
He is near
And then he strikes

It is when I am most joyous that he strikes
Not a hard strike

Time passes without you and I am fine
Until your comfort creeps back
Until your voices are heard again

What?
Nothing
Who?
No one
Why?
I know that all to well

You relieve the hurt, hassle and, hatred

Depression

Ambrose K. Madoc

26 Apr, 2017 06:50 PM
The clouds are heavy
They weigh
They darken
They can't be seen,
but they are felt
Oh, how they are felt
A weight that won't lift
A darkness that won't brighten

Artificial light
That is THE solution
That is THEIR solution

My Mind Whispers

Franchesca Mia Reves Tortoza

08 Apr, 2017 05:36 AM
"You'll ruin your life if you start,"
My mind whispers,
As my hand picks up the cutter I always bring,
I pray a silent, unheard prayer,
As I shut out the buzzing of spring
And slice.

"This is stupid! You need to stop!"
My mind whispers,
As I drag the blade across my arm yet again,
Watching red start to stain silver,
As I try not to hiss in pain.

Make Me Bleed

Ashley Paradis

Grab your knife, 
Peel it off. 
Squirting blood
By the pint and
drink until you're full. 

Take my kidneys
And render me useless.
I want you to cut me up
Cut it out 
Tell me that I'm garbage.

Goth Girl In A Graveyard.

Craig Dee

23 Feb, 2017 03:58 PM
A short extract
Goth girl all forlorn, she walks a graveyard
Alone with just her memories on her mind
Wanders lonely as she's seeking closure
And hoping it will be the healing kind


Memories these days are all she's left with
Seems everything she loves, it fades and dies
Her made up face masks the pain inside her
But rarely will a tear fall from her eyes

~Restless Thoughts~

Midnyt Ravyn

04 Feb, 2017 06:11 PM
Another sleepless night 
As the night coming to end 
My thoughts polluting my mind 
I am lost in memories and time 

My despair is overwhelming 
Coming undone I'm completely numb 
Suffocating in my sadness 
Drowning in my pain 

I feel so empty and hollow 
I reflect on images of sorrows past
