Fiction and RealitySpiraling into my own little Hell,
Nightmares coming true,
fears alive and hunting me,
Death will not come,
Tortured within my own mind,
being psychologically broken down,
There is no escape,
Hope has long since retreated,
Faith broken long ago,
My mind shattered a long time past.
This darkness never ends,
The screams echo in my head,
the pain unbearable,
I won't make it out alive,
I won't make it out at all,
It has me in its grasp,
never loosening its grip,
I am the prize
Forever here ill dwell,
Fiction has become reality.
CryCry for the living,Cry3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Shed a tear for the dead.
Cry for the words that are left unsaid.
Cry for the children,
They'll grow up so fast.
Cry because their innocence won't last.
Cry for your soul,
It's darkened with sin.
Cry because life's a game you'll never win.
Cry for the elderly,
Their bodies are weak.
Cry because death is what we all seek.
Cry for the lovers,
Even the ones with a ring.
Cry because love always goes with a sting.
Cry for the future,
Shed a tear for the past.
Smile because life can't forever last.

Am I always destined for second place?
Making others happy;
as opposed to my own happiness
Tell me where the talent lies,
If there is any at all.

ToxicA breeze blows through the air,Toxic4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Death and decay surrounds everything,
The only living thing is the air itself,
Only the wind moves,
No green is on the trees leaves,
The ground itself is only shades of gray,
A stream of black sits unmoving on the earth,
Fish float on dark green waters,
The world is dark, dead, bleak,
Red spots splatter the ground,
Yellowish skeletons are everywhere,
The only color is the air's green hue,
The air is filled with heaviness and despair,
This is the result of our thirst for power,
Humanity will be its own undoing,
Peace never seems to last,
Always men rushing off to war,
Bombs, guns, fires, death,
Children crying for lost parents,
War touches everything and everyone,
None are left unscathed,
We are the harbringers of our doom,
We are the makers of our destruction.

Death is rising,
Death's not black,
Death is color,
Death's not the end,
Death is the beginning.
Reaching OutSurrounded by darkness,Reaching Out4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Falling down deeper and deeper,
No one to save me,
I am alone.
A light at the end,
Barely there; almost fading,
Reaching out for me,
I have hope.
A shadow in the light,
Hands reaching out for me,
Grasping at my soul,
I am wanted.
A heart beating again,
Almost dead but alive,
Struggling to contain itself,
I know love.
Blood Ties Part 1Dante sat facing the door of the torture chamber, swinging the Glock 17 from an index finger as he worked out what he would say to his parents when they came home.Blood Ties Part 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
No. Those-- those monsters-- are not my parents, he reminded himself. They killed my real parents, then kidnapped me like dingoes from folklore. Tears stung his eyes, but he wiped them away. He couldn't cry now; they would be home soon, and if he showed any signs of weakness when he confronted them, it would all be over. The gun felt heavy in his hand, the cool metal long since made warm and slick with his nervous sweat. Even if he did manage to get the drop on them, they were still trained professionals; they'd killed far more dangerous targets than a ten-year-old with a handgun, at least. In all probability, he was going to be the one to die today.
He whorled the swivel chair back to face the stainless steel desk and reopened the laptop he'd brought into the sub-basement along with the toolkit he used to bypass the securit

My SuicideSay goodbye to all the painMy Suicide3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Everyone gets their wish
No ugly comments in my brain
And there is no one left to miss.
Goodbye to all the things you said
None of them matter now
And all of the things that you misread
I know this will make up for it somehow.
The wasted years and time that passed
Will be gone before you know it
This is my turn, my spell to be cast
Just pray that I wont blow it.
You're finally getting what you want
This is no time to cry
The tears I cried and the names you taunt
All lead to this... my suicide...

When the waves are to high and you can't seem to surface.
When you're lonely and empty inside.
When you feel that you should hide.
Push a little harder and walk another step.
You have purpose, you just haven't noticed yet.

I hate it when I want to fuck up everything
I hate it when I am longing for the grave
I hate it when I want to disappear
Not because I am unhappy

But because I don't want you to miss me
Why does it have to be like this?
Why do you care?
Why does it hurt so much?
Why do I care?
Sometimes I wish I was never born
Sometimes I wish I will live forever
Sometimes I wish to love
And sometimes to be loved in return
Sometimes I just want to live
I just don't
Thursday: Tree, Olive, Bottle Art Contest!I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's Day last week! Well done spreading the love to all.Thursday: Tree, Olive, Bottle Art Contest!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
This week, we're continuing the love trend. We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!
We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:
Your deviation must contain these images:
How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!
Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!

Blood Ties Part 2He ran through the forest as fast as his feet could carry him. He vaulted over fallen trunks, crashed through thickets of nettles and vines, but no matter how fast he ran, the nightmare still nipped at his ankles. He had hoped that leaving the scene of the crime would provide him some clarity and reveal a plan for how to proceed, but instead the events of only minutes before and the present ran together like sweat into an open wound, stinging and coloring everything in translucent red.Blood Ties Part 23 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
His sneakers squeaked against the wet leaves blanketing the ground as he skidded to a stop. He twisted around, his eyes darting between thin, black birch trees in an attempt to identify his surroundings. These woods were his training ground. He knew more about hunting and navigating there than he did his own home, but recent events addled his perceptions, pumping him full of adrenaline and confusing his sense of direction. Icy fingers of irrational fear gripped his spine as he circled desperately around
The Art of Mental Warfare The Art of Mental WarfareThe Art of Mental Warfare4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We need to learn to live again,
Stop renewing the subscription to pain.
Stand and turn to face the light,
Win the war, but lose the fight.
Recognise your enemy, but never engage,
Ignore your demons while they're on stage.
And when they're gone, sabotage,
Stood in the shadows under camoflage.
And when the order comes to stand and fight,
Their armies are weak and lacking in might,
Stand strong and push them back,
Then strike hard and attack.
It's all about subterfuge and deception,
Not fighting until it's your chosen reception,
Cut their hamstrings, bleed them dry,
So they're weak when you want to die.
To Be NumbI gaze through the glassTo Be Numb4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To the last rays of light
And the long shadows cast
As dusk turns into night
Hands cling to the chain link
Still struggle to stand
I know what you may think
And I know what I am
A broken man
Still stealing these breaths
Because I can
I tried to hold on
If not but for your sake
But you walked away
Left my heart here to ache
Now it just
It's this feeling inside me
And my heart is its keep
It's a feeling that
Is known only to some
Not everyone knows
What it's like to be numb...

Each pill less bitter than the last,
But swallowed down just as fast,
Each cut is deeper than the first,
The hunger sated, but a drowned thirst.
Each breath more shallow, the end in sight,
A final kiss to the darkening night,
The lights fade, black out in the mind,
Another body they'll need to find.
This corpse has escaped the infinite turmoil,
Now I've thrown myself from the mortal coil,
And to all you monsters, trapping me,
Now you're nothing. Now I'm free.

I know my tears are empty
I just don't know why.

The sad reality is that I'm a mess,
A mess that's been cleaned up so many times,
My shattered mind is bleeding through these lines,
Must be true that this blessing is truly a curse,
Because the only thing I know things are just worse,
These things showed me nothing but opposition,
And never did a thing to help my disposition,
I'm all alone in this crowd,
Only sad when I'm allowed,
I'm a jester for the masses
Invisible between classes,
And now you can look through my eyes,
Don't waste time staring at the skies,
Because if you're gonna waste this point of view,
I won't fool myself wasting my time with you,
I'll just walk away and don't expect me to look back,
All these memories will alone by allowed fade to black,
All the words I have to say,
Have all been turned gray,
And I do anything today,
I'm left with this to say,
I'm all alone in this crowd,
Only sad when I'm allowed,
I'm a jester for the masses
Invisible between classes,
I try not to fall so ha

you pay to care for people,
you are strange for being forgiving,
you are afraid to show your differences,
you befriend your every teacher,
so you're called a teacher's pet,
you're so kind to others,
so you've become a kind of door mat,
many people like you,
and you refuse to believe,
and when I say you,
I really mean me.

that I shall not relive.

NumbWhat is this feeling?Numb3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't understand.
I want to explain
But I don't think I can.
Is it really true?
Am I turning this numb?
It just can't be!
I must feel some!
Why is this happening?
Why can't I feel?
Is this all just a dream
Or is all of this real?
Someone please tell me.
Please help me feel.
I'm so tired of feeling numb.
I just wanna heal.
The pain, the sorrow,
The joy, the tears.
Yes! I want all of them!
Even all the fears!
I'm so wanting,
Longing to feel again.
This curse is so haunting,
It's like a dead end.
So, if I were you,
Be glad you can feel.
Be thankful you're not numb.
At least you are real.
