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?

I am not asking for a crown
I’ve worn one made of thorns before
That was when I was brought down
When people lost faith and built a barrier

Friends were strangers, hopes dead
Soon I became depraved and unwanted
Dark but whole, broken yet sane
And when all the love was lost

The need to rise again triggered the man within
The wait was over

Depressed Outcast


31 Jan, 2017 11:52 PM
I walk down the hallway 
with music blasting in my ears 
but i can’t help but notice 
the voices all around me 
“Why does she do that to herself?” 
“Eek! She’s got tacks in her ears!” 
“Is that a safety pin in her mouth?” 
“Doesn’t that hurt?” 
“She’s weird!” 
“She’s a creep!” 
“A freak!” 
“It’s tearing her apart!”

~Bitter Cold Darkness~

Midnyt Ravyn

The days grow colder 
Underneath the winter Sun 
And with all my pain 
I come undone

I realize I have 
Nowhere to run
I'm helpless 
Comfortably numb 

As the bitter cold darkness 
Freezing my crimson flow

I feel the sadness in you
A broken soul longing for release
The universe conspires
Bringing us together at last
In this time
In this place
Two strangers bound by fate
When our eyes met on the train
I felt the fire between us
You did as well I'm sure
As I followed you home
I knew we were meant for this

Many things wash past my view
If thy observes, madness ensue
Many things to cloud the eye
And all those things thy glorify.
For down below root stem and leaf
Our thoughts act on belief.
For what is man without another?
For the Gods curse us as Brothers
What beasts we are, in human flesh
We bind our souls and minds, enmesh.
With simple things thy cannot see
Love and hate, these things the key.

Reincarnating me

Bobbie Hayes

10 Dec, 2016 11:44 PM
and thus I reincarnate
it was the nightingale
in the timid silence
spoke to me as my friend
a friend, from infinity to infinity
from before the birth of our father
to whisper
until after the death of time.
It was a curse of a hovering sparrow
to soar or
to fall asleep
if was a voice it kissed

Eternal Scream


22 Feb, 2017 03:30 AM
Last night I saw the flame of candlelight flicker from a window and the flame did grin,
From my balcony and afar I've seen the sign that could be within.
Laces tied and a cigarette upon my lip,
Down the stairs and across the courtyard time for a short trip.
The flame called to me and drew me closer like a moth so confused,
Stumbled forward this body, this soul now greatly abused.
The flame danced to the left and then to the right,
Beautiful flame I am almost there guided by your candlelight.
Up the stairs but I took a moment before my first step of the climb,
Wish darkness could last forever frozen in the sands of time.
I approached the door which was expectedly closed and I did knock,
No one answered so I opened it - this door had no lock.

A Serpent's Crusade


22 Feb, 2017 03:29 AM
When they first met this brown fox did smile without fear,
The serpent slid forth upon the grass and lifted his head up high he made his intentions very clear.
"Serpent," the Fox winked to the snake he did accede,
The Serpent replied, "You and I Fox are the same our prey we will mislead."
Serpent as you slither your a master of disguise.
One takes sides with the devil and the other is only loyal to himself.
Fox you are so sly as you live your life in lies.

"Snake I have no quarrel with you and ask to be left alone,"
"I do not question your authority or the darkness you call your throne."
"Fox you will side with me one way or the other,"

Let Me Be


22 Feb, 2017 03:28 AM
Let me be good when I smile and show no teeth,
Hidden away a dark secret these lips underneath.
Will take a bullet, a slice from a blade,
Pull you from a fire, off the tracks from a speeding train to keep up this charade.
So when you see me when the sun lights up the day,
Make sure you get home before dark please don't get lost and become astray.

Let me be evil as I observe the environment around,
I will approach you from your flank, your front it doesn't matter you have been found.
Trust us if you wish for we do not necessarily wish you wrong,
Maybe a night out can turn you - bring you along.
