My wings were torn off and their stems bleeding, I had lacerations across my chest and face, my arms, my back and my legs, my entire body. I was half dead. I fell from the glowing amber sky, vapid with grey brown clouds, no sun in sight, from the destruction and fighting high above.

The explosion knocked me unconcious. I woke up shortly after, probably a few seconds, it was only a black out, but I was paralyzed. Wether I actually was or not, or wether I was too weak, or too mentally destroyed to give any effort, I don't know, but I was falling, and the blast that sent me was not far above me, as I saw it blurred and skewed through the red liquid fog clouding my eyes from the inside. I could not move and she was above me, all I could do was watch. It was a battle of the ages, all of them, fighting, destroying ripping shr

Crushing within your soul, the restless riot.
Darkness is closing in around you.
The Darkness in your soul has found you.
Thump. Your heart is beating fast.

Life of a "Goth"…?
You see me in the corner, huddled in a ball,
Me and all my friends loiter at the mall.
I pretend to like knives and drag them on my skin,
Just enough to make a drop of blood come from within.
Only a light scar, but dark enough to see,
To show off just how suicidal I can be.
I draw stars inside circles on my hand,
I don't know what it means, but it's the symbol of my band.
In my metal group, I play my bass,
And I use black eyeliner to draw three sixes on my face.
I can't gauge my ear, so my earring isn't real,
I'm so depressed; no one knows how I feel.
I write pathetic poems about how I hate my family,
I can't do what I want and they'll never understand me.
I buy my clothes from Hot Topic because it's cool,
Even though I have friends, I choose to sit by myself in school.
The other black-haired kids call me a poser and a mistake,
But they're not like me because I'm Goth, and they're the ones who are Fake.
