The one that...

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.

The Death in Me.

Pride Ed

23 Feb, 2015 12:53 AM
I've laid faced-down for so long;
my heart is asleep.

It thumps like static through
my atretic cavities. 
It contorts as my lungs try to 
scream it awake. 

Each breath prolongs the
eventual decay of my diaphragm,
even as my insides already 
float in it's own purulence.

Come To Me

Dean Kuch

Come to me, he said again,
to my dismay and tired chagrin,
I fought to tarry a while longer...
As I grew weak, he grew much stronger
“...Come to me.”

~*~

'Tis just a melding of simple fate,
a subject not for one's debate;
and lo', this wretched creature beckoned
I fought him off just as he'd reckoned

The Clock and I

Jakob

17 Feb, 2015 02:40 AM
I'm drifting through the tunnel of my broken state of mind 
I'm falling through to mayhem as the clock strikes one 
I'm growing old, have half a day to set myself in time 
what can i do the clock strikes two, when will this be done. 

home is not a place for me once my hope is gone 
hope is such a fragile thing, as it always will be
half a day is all i need to ruin someones dawn 
time will tell. time for hell as the clock strikes three 

i'll make them see, and i'll make them pay 
for what they all did i'll kick down the door

Temptress

I fell asleep
and she came to me
out of the darkness
into my dream like
a temptress from hell
climbing on top of me.

I wanted to cry when 
I looked into her fiery eyes
because I knew it was
my time to die.

Psycho Killer

Dillon (Blood Tears)

I didn't mean to kill her,
I didn't mean to hate,
Over come with rage, knife in my hand,
I slit her throat,
I watched her bleed,

I didn't want to like it,
I didn't want to love it,
I meant to stop
But it was too much fun,

While she bled, I turned her over,

Failure~

Jaycee L. Hughes

05 Feb, 2015 08:59 PM
You put wear and tear down onto me,
I feel my heart weaken. 
Do you ever stop, 
to even take a look at yourself?
I can’t take the pain,
it’s breaking me.
Why won’t it stop,
will this be the end?

The tears slowly fall,
only on the inside.
If this was to stop,

Can you all feel it too?

Jack Sorenson

02 Feb, 2015 11:29 PM
Truly it’s sit stilled in the air right now
 I breathe and exhale among others when I'm out
 in that our the same as I approaching them

The shakiness deep inside of my soul 
 Is truly visible only to me,
But can others see it?

 As they do cross the street before they get near me
 As people walk by me the shutter as I look to their eyes
 and see their inter souls and hear there inter thoughts
they feel it and ore very scared

It's alone

Dillon (Blood Tears)

21 Jan, 2015 05:23 PM
Cold and cramped,
It cannot breathe.
Everyone left it,
left this one behind.

Alone it cries,
Alone it sits,
We wonder why 
it gives a shit.

Alone it waits,
Alone it thinks,

I cry blood tears

Dillon (Blood Tears)

Fingers and toes,
eyes and ears,
No one knows, 
I cry blood tears.

Peace and hope,
nice and kind,
you cannot cope,
with a lost mind.

Blood and bone,
ashes and dust,
