Nighttime hell
Fearing the night has become so natural to me
That time when all my demons come to see
How far they can force me to sink once more
Deep into the darkness that tears at my core
Every night with the setting of the blazing sun
These tormens shred their bindings undone
To claw and crush their way up from the void
Inside my mind where my world is constantly destroyed
Such wrenching pain that slashes at my soul
My sanity made to slip and lose its hold
Twisting my reality to break my burdened will
And leave my overwhelmed heart shredded and still
These rivers of my tears just keep on falling
Down into my darkness which keeps on calling
dragging my tattered and lost soul deeper
Bringing me ever closer to that chilling reaper
My ability to fight back drains from my grasp
As the hands of darkness reach out to clasp
Gripping to the bone to burn with such pain
The arms of my hell becoming my chains
Where forever alone I remain weighed heavily down
Left in my endless abyss of shadows to drown

Take Her Into The Light WIP
Over the horizon, sunlight fades,
Shadows filling me like a haze,
The night takes over me.
Lying in my arms, you bleed;
Bleed your love all over me,
Leaving me in darkness to scream.
My heart trembles as light leaves your eyes,
And with that light so goes my cries.
Demons crawl to me from the darkness;
Crawling towards my beloved, heartless.
Her eyes just stare up past me,
No more essence to breathe.
No warmth to cradle in these arms of mine;
Hardened, my shattered heart feels so blind.
Numb to the entering gloom scraping and gnawing,
I'm left to say farewell in the midst of their crawling.
Chains long broken come upon this battered soul,
Binding me to be bitten and torn in this dark hole.
Without you here, the darkness shall surely win.
With these blood-curdling whispers my torture begins;
But that doesn't matter, nothing matters without you.
Take my body and tear me apart, it does me no use.
Give me your teeth, your blood red eyes,
Go ahead and tear into me, I now want to die.

Smell of Death
I look into those empty eyes
Looking for life that I could not find
Peering into your darkened soul
Hoping a heart was in that hole
Not a heartbeat nor a breath
Everything smelled of death
I held your cold, pale hands
Tracing the curve of your band
The gem falsifying life's hope
With its single bright note
Not a heartbeat nor a breath
Everything smelled of death
You lay like an angel on the floor
Gazing emptily to the door
Black, white, and red
Nothing else seen in my head
Not a heartbeat nor a breath
Everything smelled of death
Once white bed sheets we shared
Draped across the floor flared
Splattered with your life
Searing the sheets from the knife
Not a heartbeat nor a breath
Everything smelled of death
Those once elegant blue lips
Catching my heart in their grips
Hanging open ever so slightly
Her smile once was bright
But now, there's not a heartbeat nor a breath
Everything about her now smells of death

With Him I Am Saved
As I lie here crying
I hold my head up high
Crying out with all I've got
To the only one I call God
Begging for His blessings
And glorious dressings
So purely cleansed may I be
With all that makes Him holy
Giving up all my atrocity
To bask in His luminosity
And hold His wonderful light
In arms renewed by His might
So here I lie my weary heart
Giving it to Him, not in part
Wholly giving up my wretched life
Only to bask in His glorious light
At the foot of this bloody cross
Where the demon's battle was lost
And Your victory was engraved
Thus I no longer am enslaved
These chains no longer binding
The memories no longer grinding
My life to Him I freely gave
So with Him I am now saved
:icondmiermortus:DmierMortus 0 0
Drips Of Salvation
The crimson salvation falls
Cascading from the most holy of all
Pooling beneath those feet
Laden with sin so we might be free
Drip, drip
Streams fall from those hands
And healed throughout the lands
Taking up our burdens and chains
To receive the price of our blame
Drip, drip, drip
Eyes upward, arms stretched wide
Awaiting the fate of sin's heavy tide
Heaving His last mortal sigh
Heart and body broken, He dies
Drip, drip
The Almighty Son gives His life
So that no other must have to die
To be placed in a tomb ceiled away
Only to be risen with light of Sunday
His blood now falls upon these robes
Covering my stains, fulfilling my hopes
Claiming my heart and saving my soul
That I may forever be with Him whole

Tomorrow Revisited
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow,
I shall love you tomorrow but not today;
For days like these are full of sorrow,
Filled with haste and souls all hollow
And blinded saints obediently follow.
Where we like rodents do burrow.
This leads my heart to want the morrow.
Where the blood pulses in my marrow
And courage we have not to borrow;
So here I must wait for tomorrow,
Fore I truly cannot hold you this day.
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.

My Dear Valentine
If ever I were to be complete,
It would have to be with you, my sweet.
With the peace flowing from love divine,
The grace and joy of knowing you're mine.
To sleep and hold you throughout all time,
Most certainly, this must be a crime.
For the world is out to obtain
This sacred love that would keep us sane.
To complete a soul that's been torn apart,
Joining these two beings to be one heart.
With you my life can be so sublime,
So this I must ask; will you be mine?

Sleepless Night
My mind flutters to and fro
In its feeble attempt to find home
While thoughts and memories
Stab and caress my arteries
While the joys and pains
Fly and gouge my brain
Sleep may come to me eventually
But now I scream through eternity
Where my eyes I scrape and scratch
And my putrefying face I must smash
Where my heart leaps and stops
As my chest cracks and pops
This fire that consumes my soul
Or should I say that reminder of a hole
Burns with every move or thought
Screaming commands of knot
Churning each thought and move
Like a demonic cook with his stew
The surreptitious beings move by
Forever staying away from mine eye
To scratch, burn, stab, tear and boil
While thoughts of elusion are foiled   
And when they finally get bored
The darkness comes in as a horde
In the darkness there is only cold
With raspy pain stricken holds
Caught up in every motion and breath
To break and corrode undying flesh
With screams of hatred and sorrow
Thoughts can only beg for morrow

Goodbye Mom
For years and years now
I've prayed for this day to come
The day I'd walk out the door
When I'll no longer have to succumb
I'm off to become a woman
Brave and strong just like you
Different only from your flaws
You won't need to help me through
I'll go far away from here
Finding bigger and better things
I'll be just like a little bird
Fluttering away on her little wings
But now that this day is here
I'm not so sure I'm ready to leave
And the look in your eyes tells me
You will soon be ready to grieve
It's hard to imagine all this time
This time I've yearned to break away
I'd relinquish my newfound freedoms
Wishing only that I could stay
But, Mom, I'll make this promise tonight
It doesn't matter how far I go
I'll remember all you gave to me
Even if those years passed long ago
I'll live my life to its full potential
Mom, I'll never disappoint you again
And this relationship we have started
I promise it will never end.

Nature Child
I would dance among my brother trees
I’d sing with my sister flowers
I would run the race with rabbits
and converse with the streams for hours
but I’m trapped in this concrete jungle
looking for my way to find the green
yearning for the soft soil of earth
under my toes and in between.
And they tell me I am heathen
they spit the word like it is sin
never asking what it means
never looking deep within.
They won’t question what they don’t know.
They won’t ask if they can’t understand.
They won’t look into my world of green
while contented with their concrete land
So they hiss the word “witch!”
in defense hold up their cross
but their blatant ignorance
will simply be their loss.
I am not a savage pagan
dancing naked in the wood.
No animals are sacrificed  
it’s all misunderstood
For I believe in nature
in all the kinds of life.
Whether insects or possums
man with man, or wife with wife.
I refuse to fight against the Earth

strictly platonic
I tried to write a poem for you today
but I just couldn't find the right words
I knew what I wanted to say
but I couldn't find the perfect way
and it had to be perfect
I wanted to say that I'd be lost without you
and that you mean the world to me
I wanted to say you're amazing
and that you mustn't let anyone tell you different
you're my protector, my comforter, my wisdom
I come to you for advice
because I know you'll give it to the best of your ability
and if you don't won't pretend that you do
I have never been so close to a guy before
never trusted a guy this much
never loved a guy this much
in a strictly platonic way
I will be there when you're hurting
hold your hand when you're scared
I will be there to watch your achievements
encourage you when you need it
and catch you when you fall
I will never leave your side
I'll be there for you through it all
I will help you when you need advice
comfort you when you've been hurt
laugh with you when you're happy
I won't let anyth

Black Seas
A heart broken, yet still full,
black as pitch, yet longing to be cleansed.
Shamed, hated, pitied, and bled dry.
No longer showing love, nor holding tears,
a wandering ship at sea,
waiting for its beacon in the night
Desperately hoping to be shown the light of day,
something, someone, to deliver once again unto it joy
relieving the guilt, the pain, the sorrow,
which overwhelms it like the raging seas.
Always with land in sight do the winds change course,
and never in life has foundation remained solid beneath its feet.
So all land is new to one who has never known it,
a paradise to darkened eyes and a blackened soul.

welcome to the biggest show
the people in it don't even know
each wears a mask to hide their face
each feels that they are out of place
you get the ones who knowingly hide
what they're feeling deep inside
then the ones who have no fears
who'll tell their story if you have ears
each one unique but also the same
the ones who turn themselves to fame
and the ones who'll be an amazing mother
each one different, yet like another
the one's who're hurting, feeling much pain
the one's who'll go through that feeling again
always hiding how they feel
no one knowing what is real
there are people thinking that they're the best
while others are working harder than the rest
each with worries, in different forms
if you could see our souls - they'd be torn
welcome to the biggest show
always changing the way it goes
sometimes joy, sometimes strife
welcome to the show called life

My extra sense
What is left when the eyes can't see?
It is darkness which forms inside of me
Leaving me blind for reality
Prevent me from seeing its clarity.
Being deaf, one cannot hear
forced to remember, once loud and clear
the sparkling dew, the whispering winds.
Nothing's left, no sounds, no hints.
Can't smell the love floatin' in the air
the whiff of roses in her curly hair
cannot feel a little thing, not even pain.
Living a life the heart doesn't reign.
Using language as a tool
just for numbers; all grey and cool.
Language is much more than that
ruling everyone, the old lady, the tiny brat.
All your senses are wrecked and weak
I don't think this is what you seek.
But while writing a poem, from line to line,
the thoughts are clear as water, sweet as wine.
This is a poem from me to me
when thing saving me from apathy
is nothing else than poetry.
:iconlakos:Lakos 1 1
The Light and The Dark
I sit here alone in my empty home,
I stumble and fall; I can't walk or crawl,
I'm mere flesh and bone, my spirit lies prone
No chance for withdrawal, no hope of recall.

I sit here enchained in your feeble brain
The unwilling host to my unmoored ghost,
Death ends all life's pain though memories remain
You bewail, I boast, but who hurts the most?
You watch from the night, you live without light,
You violence endorse yet feel no remorse

No choice but to fight, the world rules by might
There's no other course, the strong the weak force.
I watch and I wait.  You linger in hate.
Is sorrow your fate?  Will darkness abate?

suffering in silence
I lay here awake..........again
I cannot sleep
you have taken over my thoughts
my mind wanders far and wide
on every possibility
of where things could've gone wrong
every possibility of how I could've kept you
but they all make no difference cause you're not mine
and from the looks of things you never will be
then my mind wanders back
to a time where we were together
loving life
but most importantly
loving each other
oh how I long for those moments
it seems you'll never remember
the things I'll never forget
not by choice
I have tried...
many times...
but our memories live on in my head
forever digging at my mind
struggling to resurface
refusing to let go of "what if's" and "could've beens"
I cry myself to sleep
many nights
wishing I still had your love
or even wishing I could let go
I can't even let go of these thoughts
I can't tell anyone
my friends are sick of hearing your name
hearing how much I'm hurting
from you
how much I love you
they know nothing of love
do not under

7. Favorite thing to drink

8. Is EIGHT symmetrical
8. Well first to decide whether 'EIGHT' is symmetrical or not, you must first
    understand the meaning of the word symmetrical.  Symmetrical's definition:
    Made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis; showing
    Therefore the possibility of eight being symmetrical depends on a couple of
    reasons: font type, whether it's typed out 'eight' or just the number '8', and
    also depending on whether you are meaning a two dimensional 8 or a three-
    dimensional 8.  So it all depends upon the type of 'EIGHT' for which you are
    (1)So depending on the font type, '8' may or may not be symmetrical. (2)If you
    are referring to 'EIGHT' as in the typed out version of the number, then no, you
    cannot fold the word 'EIGHT' along any axis to make a mirror image of itself
    along said folded line. (3) Then if you are referring to an '8' that is within a
    three dimensional space again it may or may not be symmetrical.  It all just
    depends on the font.

9. I was asking the word not the number, how do you feel?
9. honestly... bored...

10. I love ten, it is the end! do you love the end?
10. meh
