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?

The Heavens

Lance Barnwell

They preyed on the lambs and they granted no quarter
But now the wolves of the pack can only slaver for the slaughter
With crazed moonlit eyes they wander amongst the desolate barrows
With naught to stalk but a miasma of death enshrouded shadows

So they looked to The Heavens; the Moon and the stars
And they looked to the planets of Venus and Mars
How they howled and barked, till their breaths filled the air
But The Heavens are a legerdemain of ignorance and despair

They prayed for the lambs and sought solace from the warder
But The Heavens are empty and are the ultimate disorder

My fingertips glaze across rain-soaked granite,
And a chill sinks into my bones,
To match the petrified ruin where my heart once beat.
For this is the only caress I can give you now,
A distant embrace
That will always yearn for true release.

I place a single, rain kissed rose against the stone,
Fragile red on cold hard grey.
Unbidden memories reduced to brevity
Gouge my every breath with memory’s shards,

Eternal rest


04 Feb, 2016 02:22 AM
As i inhale my last breath and my heart fades away.
 I lay watching the stars for i know they're the way.
 My eyes filled with tears and my face with a smile. 
I know ill be up there soon with the stars and moon.
 My ears listening to every and last sound of the night. 

My wrists on the ground, red and wet.
 My legs laying numb and in regret.
 The heat leaving my body making me cold. 
I know because its what ive been told.
 My heart grows weak and unbearably icy.
 The voices in my head disappear nicely.
 My eyes fade to nothing-ness as i fall into eternal rest.

Is the line your 
looking at straight,
or is it curved?
Would knowing that
the straight line was
actually curved
cause you to become 
or would you
shrug it off with a grin
and see it as it is?

We all live in a world where darkness is falling,
We all live in a world where no one is calling,
We all want things that have no mental gain,
Because of our greed we give pestilence, death and pain.

In a world with slave drivers telling you how to live,
In a broken society that refuses the audacity to give,
"Because I said so", the phrase of no reason,
They say they give you liberty, but it's only laws without season.

Don't listen to these people, tell you what to do, what to think, and what to feel,
They treat us like machines, liveless,

Love and Pain


01 Feb, 2016 06:02 PM
For all the pain that I am to feel,
I will always be able to heal,
But because of my love for you,
There really isn’t any healing to do.

My heart was yours, saved in a locked box,
Held tight and you wound its gears like a clock’s,
But because of your choice to go, it has left pain,
And I won’t get the chance again to kiss you everyday.

I can hardly breathe, my chest is so weighted,
I took my heart back, only to have it plated,

My Queen


14 Jan, 2016 01:46 AM
Her eyes as red as Blood 
Her lips as soft as a Dead's person's skin  
Her skin as soft as Bones of the Dead 
Her hair as Black as Ashes of your Death 
Her temper as Dark and Painful as Death is self 
Her voice as soft as it can be but watch out 
you disappoint her and it appears that Satan its self is there

This is my Queen 
The Queen that I sworn to protect 
Till the very end
She will always be the Queen of Hell so be care full or you might Die

Bound for Hell

My sins are many,
too many to even
know where to begin 
telling you about 
my sins.

I'm evil,
pure evil,
as my sins are evil.

The lies I've told,
along with the items

Tick, tock, around the dock

Tick tock, in your head

Tick, tock, your already dead
Tick, tock blood stained roses
Tick tock upset family's
Tick tock murder mystery

Tick tock, sleepy child
