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.

~Cloaked In Darkness~

Midnyt Ravyn

23 Jul, 2016 07:38 PM
As night falls down 
Through the mists 
The silhouette of shadows 
Creep through twisted trees 

There is a stillness in the silence 
I hate the way the light casts 
On the images of shadows as they pass 
The silence is shattered 

By the monsters in my head 
Listen to the whispers

~Psychotic Rage~

Midnyt Ravyn

23 Jul, 2016 06:49 PM
Weakened by the blow
Dizzy from the haze 
I'm caught in the crossfire 
Once again you go 

Into your psychotic rage 
Leaving me breathless 
I'm overcome with hate 
Your laughter deafens me 

While I whither in pain 
Taken away my sanity

~My Mask~

Midnyt Ravyn

23 Jul, 2016 06:31 PM
Tried to kill the pain only brought more
Running from the truth 
A disguise I secretly hide
Behind my mask that conceals the lie

Enveloped in my darkness
Smothered in my demise
I'm the burning embers
The ashes in the fire

I fall into the nothing I become
Losing control coming undone

Ghost

I'm not sure if I'm a human with flesh and bone, 
Or if I'm a ghost that killed myself when I was alone, 
I literally cannot tell if I'm dead or alive, 
Maybe I'm a cosmic vampire, taking people’s energy to survive. 


I've decided I am dead in some way or another, 
My imprint of my old self is now buried down under, 
Zane Murray: Requiescat in Pace, or rest in peace, 
Buried in mud under a silk white fleece.

I lay in fields of dying
flowers, perhaps leaves,
maybe even a sea of 
black feathers circling
around me. The cold
autumn winds violently
push me further and
further away from

my governess

who was frantically

Dreamer

Robin

10 Jul, 2016 06:01 PM
Fading from withered leaves,
the silence lulls on.
And in that silence, the dormouse sleeps
caressing her dreams from beyond.

Lachrymose behind her closed eyelids
cascades her cheeks sadly,
but she watches the silhouettes of sailing ships
with magic from her loveless fairies.

Decadence embraces her quiet voice,
her throat writhing in agony.

Suicide is Always an Option

Euphoria Godsent

30 Jun, 2016 02:41 PM
Sweet, sweet, suicide
Will you visit me tonight
Tired of feeling suicidal when my aspirations are stifled
Fighting back tears while smiling from ear to ear

I know God won’t help
He’s good
I need to believe in myself
I would
But every time I try
Dark forces pull me behind
My unfulfilled dreams haunt me incessantly

Falsified Agony

Adeyemi Vincent

(I)
The cruelest of storms I shall 
name the wonders of Nature, 
As I heat and wane inside, the world 
will not miss my smile ,
Just as the Sun will I bless their 
visage with my agony falsified. 


(II) 
As the Sun descends down the 
stairs; Before it lays its head will
