Written by Calculating
How am I supposed to be, anything but cold and calculating.
 Why did I lose my heart, when did the numbness start?
Surely it crept in slowly, making me act so coldly
 I'm still sorry for anything I've done, I'm not the same one
Imitating it's abuse on me, I'll try to make you see
 I'm not exactly what I used to be, this is a new demon
And it lives in me

The film crew refers to him as "Crazy George"
But sanity's not in question
Maybe a freak but well contained
A master of practical effects
Exhibiting body parts on full display
These most proud creations
Hacked limbs, gaping severed heads
Not flesh but latex works of art
Gathered for inspection
Then carefully placed when the camera rolls
Evidence of irradiated mutant creatures
Or cast aside by zombie hoards
Organized by the whiz kid director
Brimming with smug confidence
Sitting for a brief break time chat
Waxing...

Written by Abra Abracadabra
The eye rages through the shutters
old women in black shiver at their beads
counting in threes as the moon grows horns
to gore the souls of  hapless travellers
betrayed by providence on the road
Children conceived now
fret wilfully until their teens
to race from the countryside like weeds
the chill glittering stars of their birth
driving them away to live in cities
Wife-beating husbands
claim right to pardon from the courts
Fishermen pace indoors
the pike buries his nose
fires will not light and cocks do not crow

laying on my bed, looking at the ceiling with a hopeless mind
my eye lids are getting heavy, tired from the world
my face is sagging, by the gravity of life
my breathing is getting slower, but my anemic heart drums on faster and faster
my voice is lost, just a monotonous sound
talking to myself, with no one around
listening to this angelic symphony, that's being played effortlessly
listening to it to feel something, sad or even angry
but not feeling anything, when I hear it, nothing is surfacing
cause my happiness got lost with my innocence
and my...

It was amongst my darkest hours
The longest night had passed
Day's full rays burned my tired eyes
My guts burned hard with cramping pain
bending me in half keeping me awake
I never knew how long till the end
The shadow came and whispered soft
"You should tell her good-bye and
let her live with all the pain she made"
I didn't care and laid there waiting
but it handed me the phone and was
even kind enough to dial
Fitting her's be the final voice
the only voice I ever wanted
but seemingly cold and distant
The shadow...

Clowns speak in the light
while other are stuck in at night
some are afraid of the fright
some fight just to prove their right
while no children fly their kite
read a book or ride a bike
just listen to parents complain
that no one anymore has a brain
all while realizing nothings as it seems

actions speak louder than words
and tree huggers kill forest and birds
just to prove they are absurd
while bowing too a proclaimed nerd
scientific fact of what you heard
that no one or disease is really cured
just on grounds of...

Written by Victoria Drapeau Jinx
I cry my heart out
and scream in pain
I dream of an end
within reach

I see the end
and try to go closer
I dream of an end
as it comes to me

I feel the pain
buried deep
within my heart

Why can't I be free?
Free to dream
Free to bleed
Free to set myself free.

Just let me end this
let me be free
I'm begging
I'm pleading

Just let me be free
I embrace the arms of death
as it wraps around my soul
and steals my breath away.

Just finally free
in the arms of thee

Teddy Bear of mine,
Will you fight my demons?
I don't wish to die.
They hide inside.
In  the dark and cold.
Teddy Bear so warm,
Can you make them back down?
Please stop the storm.
Death lurks in my mind.
It has been eating me inside.
Old, Worn Teddy Bear, falling apart,
I'm sorry for forcing you to save me.
You needn't worry about me anymore.
Dear little Teddy Bear...
You brought me through,
but after this,
I will never again need you.

My hanging little best friend...
I'm sorry I couldn't...

DU Poetry : Dark Poems about Death, Horror and Evil

Published on 27th February 2015 9:48pm
Written by xBunnyx vampiregurl646
My kind isn't you
This is true
I thought you knew
what was deep inside of you
I thought you knew
whats becoming of you
Thought we could be friends
but now we have turned into enemies once again
Need to listen to me more
when I say he is a selfish whore
I need to say
That it'll be ok
Even though you are not my kind
My kind is dark
Hateful
and Neglectful
You wouldn't survive my kind
No No
You wouldn't stand by my side

I'm hungry, so hungry for one last taste of you
Remember me tomorrow, remember me if it's the last thing you do
Don't forget to look for me when you follow me down to Hell
I'll be there waiting to protect you behind the bars of my cell
A lifetime of sinning bought me a room with a fiery view
But what the Hell, it's a crib with a bed built for two
So remember me, remember my scent, it'll guide you to me
We will never be free but we can burn together for eternity
Don't forget how delicious I taste or the look on my face
Knowing this flesh and blood supper was...

It's not,
   just another rainy day.  
The sun was hot,  
   So I hid it's rays.  
I stole it's soul.
   I am power.  
I ate it whole,
   magnetic wonder.  
The piercing scream,
   of my inner torture,
has tipped the field
of madness,
   I'm on the slaughter.
I have no control,
  The rain is turning into
  a storm.
A Hurricane in the making,
  reaping innocent souls.
My tears, are hidden  
   beneath drops of rain.  
And...

Each word she writes a gentle explosion
Rage, sorrow and laughter in equal measure
The fear does appear there and here
But its creeping aspect strapped to the table
And dissected
It's components discussed, losing their secrecy
Later, her ire appears in metaphoric fire
Those flames leaping, shadows cornered on the walls
Tragedy to those she scrutinizes
Traitors exposed to the naked, dangling bulb
Embarrassed to be still alive
As for the melancholy, a veil, finally...

I know what they want
staring down on me
from the barrel of a 44
are we happy they cry
are we loved
I stare back and chuckle
that twinkle doing the
rumba in my eyes
yes you are happy...loved
a twitch rhythmically
pulls back the left
side of my face
spittle forms in the
crook of my mouth
when will we love again
when will we be free
bracing myself against
the bathroom sink I stare
at my reflection in the mirror
as soon as I brush
my brain with this bullet
from the barrel of a 44

Walking through this field
I feel so alone
For it is me
Who hasn't the soul

The air holds an emptiness
I feel caged
For it is me
Who gave into rage

Lay me in a hole
Keep me at ease
Lay me in a bed
Disease

Listen to the night air
So you can hear
Echos of me
Here

Lay a rose on my own grave
Eulogy of the down
For it is me
Who frowns

Lay me in a hole
Keep me at ease
Lay me in a bed
Disease

Tears form in her eyes,
As she slowly inside dies.
Her blade the comfort,
the shower to distort.
Listen closely for her scream,
when she ends this horrible dream!
Take her down into the abyss.
Surely nothing will be amiss.
Her friends are all gone.
Why should she continue on?
Hear no,
Speak no,
See no,
Feel all.

Eyes wide open,
but her sanity keeps slopin'.
Not up but down.
Maybe she'll drown.
Drown in the blood,
drown in the lies.
All just to hide what's inside.
They let her go,

My life seems to be falling a part
It seems that life is worthless and nobody cares
It seems that I live for nothing
It seems to be no good
What is the porpoise of life
It seems worthless
It seems to me it doesn't matter
It seems like there is no reason
It seems that life is stupid
It seems that I'm dead
What is the reason
It seems there's not one
