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?

Most of us worship an invisible man,
I don’t understand how people can,
We’ve never met him, Earth or sky,
All I ask is a simple, “Why?”

A man named God, somewhere in the clouds,
Created the Earth, planted crowds,
A big beard, and white robe,
Is given faith around this blue globe.

Created Hell for the wicked and bad,
Created Heaven for the righteous and glad,

Leave Me Alone, My Dear


31 Oct, 2015 06:24 AM
My mind is a canvas that I make my own,
Depending on my mood, I'll let some be shown,
Showing it may be dark, and sometimes light,
But no matter what it is, it'll make a hard bite.

Beware of my impulses and mistakes I am to make,
They can be so intense, it'll make your bones shake,
I am that I am, forever more,
Don't be afraid, of the blood and the gore.

When you see what I see, this war in my mind,
You'll know the reason, why I'm not so kind,

Black is the color I wear,
Black is the color I see,
Black is what I bear,
Black is what I decree,

People upon people swallowing the halls,
All stare at me with complete awe,
Judgment is in the air and written on the walls,
With this feeling I solemnly lock my jaw.

Their eyes locked with mine,
My music blasting in my ears,

There's a monster 'neath the bed
Eyes o' stone; heart of lead

Nightmare nighttimes 
Are a finite time-
Twist 'n turn; shudder 'n studder
Fear creeps up the spine-
Just like any other

Night of fright at it's peak
Sit up; peek 'neath the sheets
Curled up beneath, there it lay

Under The Cherry Red Moon


01 Nov, 2015 11:01 AM
A lone wolf is out, on his midnight prowl
On a rock is sitting a fine feathered fowl

Calmly prowling in the dark of the night
Sitting on a rock, singing in delight

Going in for the kill, eyes gleaming
looking up at the sky, stars beaming

One swift jump, teeth sinking into the prey
eyes begging for mercy it wanted no mae

Stone, Yet Me


30 Oct, 2015 06:03 PM
My heart is stone
no emotion seen.
feeling the lies of society,
of the punkers, the loners

Showing no complexion to anyone but myself
blade on my bookshelf,
tried to be cool, but it didn't work out,

with my  mind in a box,
sadder than a wounded fox,
laying in the darkness of my room alone with myself,

Day by day, in this pit of Hell,
I lay there, being tormented, 
Hoping someone with ring the bell,
And make the pit illuminated.

My screams go out through scars,
How can no one hear me?
I'm locked in with this depression, behind bars,
Can no one hear me?

For so long I've been screaming,
I try so hard to get you to see,

let's meet up tonight
at Hallow's cemetery gates
and look to see if anything lurks
there late into the night
under our Moon's light.

We can look for the shadows
of the dead
as they mysteriously appear,
acting nonchalantly,
as if they were always

My Bed

I see red,  red,  everywhere
My bed it covers
Red blood runs through
It leaves many scars

Silently I lay there
Like ink my body fades
As I sink below
From blood my heart is poisoned

In slow motion I kiss you
As the emotion in your eyes
