I lay in fields of dying
flowers, perhaps leaves,
maybe even a sea of 
black feathers circling
around me. The cold
autumn winds violently
push me further and
further away from

my governess

who was frantically

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,

Hurried in on a trolley, sound of sirens still ringing,
Driven into a sterile cubicle with machines,
My dry lips forced apart, suffocating as the tube is forced down my throat,
Something snaps onto my finger, beeping,
Pads placed on my body, so cold, so very cold,
Buzzing, muffled words, the room darkens.

No more pain, freedom, a light freedom coarses through me,
I see my shell laying below, frozen,
Surrounded by panicked medics, why are they worried?
Higher I drift, floor after floor,
Someone's lost their coat on the fifth floor!

I fell asleep
and she came to me
out of the darkness
into my dream.
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.

The scar of living

black phoenix

23 Jun, 2014 08:22 AM
there was only one yesterday,
but before i fell asleep in my nightmares,

there were shadows with no light,
and so the phoenix lost its might,

the sound so vivid it could pierce the deaf,
and so left the tree with no leaf,

the tree made from dry tears,
has its roots way down the ground almost reaching hell with no fears,

Sewn Silent

I stay quiet
And linger in the shadows
No one cares if I cause a riot
No one hears my screams as I bellow

Not because I wont
But because I cant
No words come out and float
My lips will not part so I can chant

With a needle and thread
My lips were binded

Borderline in an almost oneiric fashion of
Sleepwalking in an invisible, yet hissing fire;
This personification of a hellish realm of 
Compulsions to the unknown.

So I use this hourglass to count away
Obsessive invalidation as a victim
Of a lonely depressive.

As lonely as I, maybe?
But also as fake as a narcissistic smile
In the shape of a crescent moon.

This time that's now, this midnight hour
Hiding those who creep and lour
Inside your mind, they're in your head
Sneakily slithering towards your bed

Mark the time and feel what's present
In the black below the lifeless crescent
Dire is the darkness as they slyly slink
Not close yet, but nearer than you think
In disturbing dreams do you soundly sleep?
Gnashing teeth ward off those who creep
Hideous creatures who skulk and lour

A Girls Worst Nightmare


29 Dec, 2013 06:35 PM
Her innocence,
Her hope,

Beaten and bruised.
Battered and broken.
it all hurts the same,
And its always unspoken.

Tied to a cross,
We cried for shattered souls.

A Gift

They won't leave me alone
Every time I close my eyes they are there

Now everyday I am sleep deprived
Afraid of what I know
What I see
What will come
They always happen
