Feeding till' you cannot win.
Watch the spiders bite your heart,
Killing till' your life departs,
Feel the maggots in your hair,
Squirming till' there's nothing there.
See the scorpions climb your spine,
Crawling till' you loose your mind.
Feel the worms inside your brain,
Eating life till' you're insane.
See the hands around your neck-
Squeeze until there's nothing left.

What's that son?
It must be something father's done.
Yes, my boy?
I can't be bothered; here's a toy.
Mother, hear me-
What's that you say?
You don't have problems- go on and play.
Mother, I can't-
Hold your tongue child.
You've never suffered my father's wild.
Mother, I'm dying-
Isn't that swell?
Go on and jump- see you in Hell.
Mother, I beg-
Then get on your knees.
Until I see blood, silence your pleas.
Son, what is this?
That is a noose.
A trinket I've crafted to set my life loose.
Son, was it dad?
In some ways, I guess.
But I'll never tell you the part you progressed.

Who plays with charcoal, hid from sun;
Surely he’s just having fun.
Daddy dearest feeds him well;
He’s not hungry- he’s just swell;
Steal that treat- be sent to Hell.
Daddy dearest buys him shirt;
Green and strange- so small it hurts;
But that's okay; it beats just dirt.
Daddy dearest drinks his bile;
Only thing that makes him smile;
Helps forget- just for a while.
Daddy dearest tells him story;
Of death and drugs and empty glory;
Tells him life is far too gory.
Daddy dearest puts boy to bed;
Blanket of drywall to tuck in head;
Don't mind the bugs that wait to be fed.

Blood rains from her hair.
Drip, drip, drip,
Warmth, warmth, warmth,
Draining from her eyes.
Warmth, warmth, warmth,
Death is her disguise.
Screams, screams, screams,
Swallowed by the numb.
Screams, screams, screams,
She will soon succumb.

A Pocket Full of PebblesA pocket full of pebbles- a stomach full of stones,A Pocket Full of Pebbles1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Blood in my intestines- a sea of broken bones.
Wallowing in hatred, has turned my skies to red.
If I follow in these footsteps, I know I’ll be dead.
But when I turn to see the sun- beyond what I have built,
I don’t see anywhere to run- all I see is guilt.
You could be my savior- or maybe my demise?
Emotions rarely reach me, for I’m what I despise.
If I was built to crumble; to tear my body down,
Then maybe I’ve a purpose- to take the leap and drown.
I could say I care- but that would be a lie.
I don’t want to love you- I just want to die.

I stand so very much alone.
I stand and think of all the places,
I might not taste of stone.
Voices slip throughout the valley,
Tumbling in the winter breeze.
Whispers pass my empty galley,
And search for souls to squeeze.
Boys meet girls and girls meet boys,
Dancing through my head.
While children play with brand new toys,
I’ll wonder if I’m dead.
I’ve screamed and cried and searched my mind,
Like a child calls his parent.
But every time I always find,
That I am still transparent.
I take the gun and open wide,
I taste metal on my throat.
I take my vows and forgo pride,
That’s when I find

All along her arms.
Tiny ink spines,
Hold such secret charms.
Where there once was blood,
Now rests a simple word.
Wards away the filth and mud,
Yet never to be heard.
Never to be spoken,
These letters stand alone.
Guarding what was broken,
They stay the Devil’s stone.
Cover scars from other lives-
Free her from her pen.
Times of blood; of fear; of knives-
She will live again.

Where have you gone?
Sleeping with swine,
Did I do something wrong?
Needles and lies,
Bring life to your cries;
Heart filled with ash;
Wrists tattered by glass;
Oh how you've changed-
My heart rearranged.
And yet you return,
To spit on my burn?
Anxious hands waver-
Look into my soul-
But I cannot save her;
She left but a hole.

Has wrought upon my wildest grief.
Attraction truly is a plague,
Murderous and deathly vague.
Spreads like fire and sick disease,
Mother save me- if you please.
Falling prey to Devil's charms,
Makes these slits along my arms.
Desperate I would give my heart,
If only you would let this start.
Thrown my body 'cross the floor,
Strewn till' I can take no more.
Sink your cadence deep in mine,
Lest I fall to fear and twine.

Dancing before my countenance,
Kissing across the black void,
Drawn into my skin.
That strange, familiar sound,
Of drummer boys drowning,
Coming over me,
A symphony of defeat.
Its sharp smell curdling at my nostrils,
It climbs with toxic fumes,
Closing my eyes.
Its taste I cannot explain,
Vague comfort in the stale emptiness,
The sun has left this place.
Burning over me,
Robbing all that was,
Blanketing my soul in morphine,
My sin is purged.

Remember that place?

Those precious moments,
Before our great fall?
Brother once mine,
I know I failed.
Over your screams,
I merely wailed.

And I’ll do it in your face.
I would give your arms and legs,
Just to leave this place.
You may say there’s hope to spare,
But I know it’s a waste.
I am such a worthless fool,
I yearn for metal’s taste.
There’s one way left to save the rest-
The few who really cared.
To stick the dagger in my chest,
As I have never dared.

They didn’t say a thing.
I took to my chest a metal prong;
I made myself a ring.
I slavered like a creature;
I purged myself of me.
I needed placement in the feature;
I didn’t care for being free.
I took my flesh and made it stone;
I flushed away my being.
I carved until I reached the bone;
I had to be worth seeing.
An empty husk returned to home;
The bag of skin came back to town.
Was this the place he used to roam?
His head said smile- his heart said drown.
The monster went to make amends;
To not be so alone.
The monster went to win his friends;
He couldn't live unknown.
He asked them if they’d

Sally was sitting up in the Skellington Manor tower; watering the single black rose Jack had given her in a small vase. Jack was busy planning for next Halloween at the town hall with the bumbling mayor. She was free to wander the town while he worked, and she usually did, but for now she just watered her rose, looking out the large windows that viewed all of the town and graveyard. She smiled as she saw the corpse mother attempt to control her rambunctious corpse kid as he bolted around on his child leash, testing the tired moJake Skellington part II9 months ago in Settings More Like This
