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?

Run, dear girl

I sing for you my dear
for now is the time when you must run

I will hurt you
I will kill you

Run my dear girl run
Run from the pain
The sorrow
and the love you lost

Run from me

I've met the devil,
And he isn't a little red man with horns and a tail,
I've met the devil,
He's a man that has died and will make you cry,
And you ask, "Just why?"
I've met the devil,
He's the man that will bury you down,
The man of black shadows,
A man of the nightmarish crown,
I've met the devil,
He's in your sleep, not under your bed,
He's not hiding in your closet,

She will haunt 
She will taunt

There is no escape 
There is no hope left to relate to

There is little to eat
And hurting feet

The ache goes un pleased 

The pain unable to be washed away by tears

I failed at death

Dillon (Blood Tears)

06 Feb, 2016 07:58 PM
Cold and quiet
Out in the night
Dark and windy
Under this tree
Depressed and hopeless
I start to tie the knot

Slow and steady
I wrap it around my neck
Thoughts and memories
I jumped and started to swing
Warm and fuzzy

Cold Heart/Bloody Palms

Lance Barnwell

10 Feb, 2016 03:20 PM
How cold is the heart that's as brittle as glass
Shattering to shards on the cusp of your grasp
And those shards are the razors that you grind in your hands
For in the ecstasy of pain only you'll understand
Feeding the fire to obliterate those dubious charms
The glass cannot glisten drenched in the blood from your palms

Can you not shed a tear, are you misunderstood?
Or are you purging the sorrow with your own vapid blood?
Lazily leaking from each jagged rip
Depleting your reasoning with each languid drip

Being Human

Stevey Taylor

19 Feb, 2016 11:51 AM
As my eyes close to the inevitable darkness that is death 
As the cold hands of the keeper begins to grip my already shaken soul 
Whispers of her voice like tiny echos in the chasms of my mind
I taste her briny tears dripping off her face as her warm body tightly caresses mine l
I lay there numb with only memories to hold on to

I am selfish even till death 
Wishing I could take her with me 
She grips me tighter as I slip through her fingers 
Then I feel her hold loosen up 
I see her heart giving way 
I am selfish even till death

My Silent Hill


12 Feb, 2016 09:10 PM
Every morning I wake up 6 A.M.
Moon still out as if it be a clear gem,
Darkness in my room, same as the night,
This place I live, just isn’t right.

Outside of my head, leads to the mill,
That holds and stores nothing but thrill,
Mist and fog lays upon the streets,
Nothing to notice but my bloody sheets.

Monsters walk the streets during the night and during the day,
Limping and crawling on all fours, demons I must slay,

The Heavens

Lance Barnwell

07 Feb, 2016 03:08 PM
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,
