As I lay my head down,
I hope i won't see,
Another entity of insanity.

I hope in vain, he does not come tonight
he bears no wings, yet he takes flight,
He is not permitted, but he bears the Scythe,

As I lay my head down,
It grows very cold,
And their appears a skull, archaic and old.

I hope in vain he leaves me now,
he has the souls of the lost, i don't know how,
He is the Reaper's Right hand, and he won't cease now.

As I lay my head down,
I know his true mission,
He wants my sanity, 'tis his intention.

I hope in vain he will not scream,
the souls of the lost are to be set free,
my weary mind can't take this, i can't even read

What he will do next, i do not know,
Why he needed me, I do not fathom,
when he is defeated, I do not know,
Until then, his agenda I do not fathom.

My sanity is his,
I cannot go on,
May the screaming skull forbid you sanity and sleep.
the full title is "Screaming Skull Won't Let Me Sleep" but it won't all fit...this is the poem inspired by the drawing.

As rude as your comment comes across, I'll try to be polite back:

- I found nothing to critique about your poetry becuase I thought it was very good and there was nothing to critique

D.U.H.

Do you want commenters to be honest or not? Honesty is the best way to improve in both writing and drawing.

yes i know, but most honest people have told me my poetry is great and my drawings suck. I'm trying to improve my drawings on my own time, but I would appreciate it if people wouldn't comment on old news.

Keep on keepin' on. Even if the skulls and their screams replace the dancing visions of sugar plums this holiday season.

More often than not, though, it's the screaming synthesizer that lulls me to sleep. Good god Amon Tobin can turn out the good shit.

this one is good.. really good, i feel the terror of the inocent as he lies there waiting for insanity to take him, it's so wonderfully written. but this one ;

"I hope in vain he leaves me now,
he has the souls of the lost, i don't know how,
He is the Reaper's Right hand, and he won't cease now."

i don't really like rims, :) but it works to give the poem a bit of panic, it's like you didn't know what to say so you paniced and used the same word..

great

FF.

that is the feel its supposed to give, not rythmic, though you can follow it...and not discordant, but panicked. That is one of my least favorite parts of this poem, but my favorite is the last 3 lines. Thanks for the comments!
