Omnipresence At The Train YardsOmnipresence at the Train Yards
The light from the Sun drapes my skin in warmth,
Yet the still, cold air is enough to remind me that
Monsters hide in the open when they know simple
Boys won't walk with ease into empty stone vaults.
Untold were the many years this earth stood witness
To none but residual remorse of a vagrant lantern.
The scene above is not the same as in my memory.
I had once stolen a glance to the sky to tell myself
That greater good lay atop the tower, but its shape
Is nowhere found in outskirts of this human outpost.
The signs of heavenly vestige now muted in shade:
Everything that was once blue has been bleached
Into the sickly white complex of bereavement.
The color has faded from the grass and trees
To leave behind ghostly echoes of a planet
That retained relics of a rich history.
I know that I left my body behind when tired eyes
First caught glimpse of the infernal glow beyond the doors.
In my heart I could hear that red din urging me to turn back,
Slipping Into InsanityThere is no darkness inside the lightSlipping Into Insanity3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No frantic ramblings of twisted fright
No bleeding wrists of barbs held tight
No screaming fangs prepared to bite
No demons gathering in dark delight
To torment you every day and night
Such bliss in these flames alight
Until insanity snuffs out your sight
Dance the dance within the day
No letting nightmares have their way
Refusing to look beyond today
Closing your eyes in hopes to stay
To dance within the light's bright ray
Feeling the cold being held at bay
Ignoring the winds that tear and fray
Until insanity comes into play
So much for light and smiles dear
Happiness forever lost inside the fear
Within this cold no friends come near
You are very much alone without a cure
No gentle voices will you now hear
No arms to hold and sunlight cheer
Just the welcoming demon's sneer
No denying insanity is right here
Victim of a John DoeDo you want to hear the storyVictim of a John Doe3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
of how I died?
I promise it won't be boring
so if you would
just take a seat, have a drink
Past memories reach,
I met the most amazing man
who spun words of silver and gold
with a tongue more fine than silk.
He told me he could do no wrong
and I, young and foolish, believed him.
And when we went home,
his eyes shining with new excitement,
things were perfect.
Then it shattered.
Nothing more intense
than feeling my own blood
trickle down my body.
stares traveling down
blood spattered knife
a gaping wound
cries of shock
gleaming white smile
solid drops of blood
and fading light.
I knew him for one night
he disappeared the next.
To this day I am simply known
as the victim of a John Doe.
RedScarlet is like sin,Red7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And sin is temptation.
We are slaves to ignorance,
And the light is our almighty.
Crimson is like poison,
And poison is potent.
We are children of anarchy,
And the darkness is our saviour.
We are a new occult,
A new outlet for insanity.
We are followers of the damned,
And the Reaper is our master.
Vermillion is like danger,
And danger is erotica.
We are agents of death,
And Death is our god.
We built god from blood.
Blood that came from us.
God restores the blood.
And we, in time, will build a new god for our sick religion...
...when they prove this one evil.
Curse of The LiarsDiscreet silver spidersCurse of The Liars2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
slip from the tongues
of filthy liars
to weave webs
thick and replete
with hazy veils of deceit
that grow more dense and complex
as they spread and mature,
Inducing confusion and delusion
while damaging lives,
But fear not oh ye swindled,
Because those webs either
collapse or implode
retract or explode
as the discreet silver spiders
come back to bite the flesh
and gouge the eyes
of their original creator,
For Heaven and angels utterly despise
filthy mouths that spawn silver spiders,
This is the curse of the liars…

So that my little black birds,
May fly high across the twilit sky,
Irrevocable doom is heralded by,
Their uncompassionate cries,
Live by the blade,
Perish by the blade,
Warriors are merely farmers,
Who reap what they sow,
Every true man of blood,
Shall one day rest beneath,
The talons of the crow…
ALONENo one can see the pain that we hide,ALONE11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They're happy for us to keep it inside,
Our fear is our own; they don't want to know,
Why sould we involve them; why should it show.
You live your whole life in confusion and fear,
The need to feel something unbearably near,
Half of you living, Half of you gone,
And inside you know what your doing is wrong.
The thing's that can help, the thing's that may heal,
Are the flame or the blade and the sting of the steel,
The destruction of skin means the death of your soul,
But there's nowhere to run when your living alone.

You call me weak,
I might be,
You call me names,
I take them,
I stood up to you,
You pushed me down,
My body feels hot,
My knuckles turn white,
I close my eyes,
When I open them you lay on the floor,
You get up and swing at me,
I swing back harder than ever before,
As you fall I see tears of blood,
Istill feel rage,
I still feel hate,
Everyone stares as they pull me away,
Covered in blood that is not mine,
You called me weak,
But my hate for you made me strong.

Suicide NoteDear friend, dear family, dear all whom I hate.Suicide Note9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
This is my chance... My time to escape...
My time to shine, I've just crossed the line.
I swallowed some pills and am slowly dying.
I've taken my life, with no kind of regret.
I came to realize, my life isn't shit.
Reality hates me, fantasy ignores me.
But this shiny little knife, all but adores me.
I cut my wrists, my blood falling into mists.
The vein slowly hisses, as I look into abysses.
I draw the steel, from is red warm womb.
Trail the blood on this note, spelling out "Doom".
I cry acid tears, they burn out my eyes.
They take the sights away from this world I despise.
I still feel the pain, I still hear the torrment.
As my soul in my body, still remains dorment.
I get out the rope, tie up the noose.
I've remained here far to long, it's time to be set loose.
I hang my head is sorrow, bidding my farwell.
I jump off the chair, and fall down to Hell...
My NightmareMy Nightmare11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It is half past twelve
And I'm tossing in bed
I think I hear you
But that is all in my head
This is the third night this week
I toss and wake to my screams
In my nightmares you live
When once you were part of my dreams
I grip my pillows tight
And cry out so many tears
But if I close my eyes again
The blackness returns me to my fears
In my dreams
I can see the pain
As death took you from me
I relive that dreadful hour
And this is what I see
There I am
Holding you in my arms
And giving you a tender kiss
When from behind
A monster with a knife
Stole my love and bliss
He stabbed you deep in the back
With a knife as dark as his eyes
And falling to your knees
My heart broke
And life lost all her ties
I try to comfort you
In my arms
Tell you everything will be okay
But that monster laughs
And kicks me in the face
Before running away
I crawl to crouch over your body
Holding you tight to my chest
You try to speak
But the blood trickles
Down your mouth

Emo PoemsYou make me smile when I feel suicidal,Emo Poems8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You made me grin when I downed the gin.
Bottoms up, half a cup,
Poisoned with an Overdose of pills.
That sadistic smile's been haunting me for a while.
He wanted me to perish so him I couldn't cherish.
He took my love and sent him above,
But I fear I'll be going the other Way.
Shadows creeping on the wall, they all hate me after all,
They did this to my soul, now they have reached their macabre goal.
Gun to my head, I feel slightly dead,
No matter what's Before me.
Perfume with blood, spots on my hair,
My life is torturous, too much to bear.
Alone I cry, alone I die,
Misery has left me Cold.
When will this end, this hell on earth?
When will I be given new chances, new birth?
My pitiful life, filled with strife,
Who cares what Happens to me?
Demonic halo, angel of shadows,
Banished from heaven, or so it goes,
Bottemless pit, existance grit,
Condemned to Falling helplessly.
My arm hangs down, thoughts racing in my head,
My eyes laid on where you ha
SuicideWhen life gets tough,Suicide11 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You get your knife.
When life just sucks,
You take your life.
When you have problems,
When no one cares.
The scars on your arms.
All the stares.
The blade of the knife
Held up to your wrist.
The blood leaking out.
Your hand in a fist.
There is no pain.
You do not start.
To the pain in your heart.
If you're in the mood
You might get artistic.
Carve a morbid message
"I am sadistic."
"Screw the world"
Most don't understand
What it's like to suffer.
"There are people in the world worse off than you."
Do you care?
When life gets tough.
The blade. The knife.
When life just sucks.
Your death. Lost life.
The cuts. The blood.
The freedom you find.
Take a look inside
The suicidal mind.

Come little children, come with me,
I'll take you to a land of fantasy,
Have you heard, of this great place?
It's called Creepypasta, the land you'll grace.
My friends who live here are great and strong,
Mightier than even Donkey Kong.
We are here, it looks quite dreadful,
You can't leave, don't make me chuckle!
You are trapped, here in this place,
I am your guide, you can't replace,
So follow me pace for pace.
Here we go, the walk has started.
Come now, and don't be so guarded!
Here we have a murderer now, he's on that mound.
He'll kill you quick, faster than sound.
His face is white, his smile is big,
He'll say "Go to sleep", and snap you like a twig.
Do not wail, and do not weep!
It's not time for you to go to sleep!
We have more, much more to see,
So come along, and follow me!
Next on our list, is something strange,
A pokemon, well that's a change!
This little one was abandoned so!
He once was a Brother, is that so low?
Now in this land, he calls for blood,
He became a monster,

I will whisper to you in your dreams
Sleep peacefully my love

It’s a lonely night.
Being away from people I don’t know.
Without any light.
Or happiness as a child.
Invited to a party.
With kids playing tag, running by with a VOOM! …
Well…there’s no need to be hasty.
Just have fun together…in the other room.
I’m a loner, with nothing to boast.
Afraid of others, that’s my characteristic.
Which animatronic represents me the most?
Sometimes I wish for more.
Sometimes I wish to be known
Why am I such a bore?
Why can’t I be someone special—AHHHHHH!
Don’t worry kid, you’ll be safe with me.
Where are you taking me?
Don’t worry kid, you’ll be saf

You took it away,
You didn't know what you were getting into
I picked up a bottle,
Smashed it on the ground,
Carved with the shards of that instead.
When you found out,
You removed all the glass,
Gave me plastic instead.
So I tore at my skin,
With my fingernails,
Still drew blood,
Only harder now.
You didn't like this,
So you cut my nails right back.
I threw myself against the walls,
Punched them as hard as i could,
Breaking my fists and destroying the room.
You lined them with matressess,
To make them soft and useless.
So I tore out my hair,
Great chunks at a time.
You bought a straitjacket,
Made me wear it so I couldn't move.
You removed everything that i could use to hurt myself,
To stop eating.
You didn't like this idea of mine
So you forced a tube down my throat.
I tore it out but you put it back in.
I promised to eat
But i threw it up.
You watched me for hours
To stop that little trick
I drove my car off a cliff

But she remembers
