Head first into my failure
I can never wait to get there
At least then it will be over
At least until the next cycle comes around
I will never make amends!
This road, it seems, to never end..
And now it seems I'm breaking down!
Inches away from falling out.. for good.
I can never be enough!
I can only do so much!
But I am just a resistable force..
I will never be what you want!
I can never be enough...
And I will never be your crutch..
I'm not the immovable object you think of me.
Is routine, just another day....

First gaze onto your wide beating eyes.
I can see your uneasiness, but it makes me want it even more.
Caught in a dirty dance,
Where each gesture builds to a climax.
The anticipation of doing something wrong just adds to the fire.
You are my desire.
I want you
Now you are close to me, and I make you feel special.
I tell you what you want to hear, because I have to be careful.
I've seen you evolve into a monster that I can not resist.
If you flew away now, I would be so pissed.
I need you

Timmy Tongal and Sally Aloue
ran through the streets
never quite sure what to do.
Lil Tongal tangles and pulls hair through night.
Timmy travels your home,
he gathers his treasure and loot.
The earring back,
the sock,
the dime,
and the dolls loose boot.
The things that maybe lost by you,
were found by Timmy
for his lil Ms. Aloue.
Sally smiles and swings
on the branches
of high evergreens.
Waiting for Timmy,
she throws shadows
and makes the wind scream.
She lays water on the walk
in midnight icy air.
She plays...

Oh dear suicide,
Come for Me Tonight,
It Won't be long until I'm Gone,
No One Will Miss Me,
No one Will Cry,
No One will Care that I Said Good Bye,
Oh dear suicide,
Please.. Please Come for Me Tonight,
I'm Ready to Die..
I'll Wait until Everyones Asleep,
I'll Go into the Bathroom,
I'll Grabe My Razor Blade, and Start Cutting away,
No One Cares Anyways,
Oh Dear Suicide,
Come for Me Tonight,
It Won't be Long Until I'm Gone,
I'm Broken Inside, and Tired Of Life

Tis another unholy night
In this darkened land
Of the shattered and torn
Surrounded by a lake of fire
Lucifer brings the dying light
And casts the force of dispiriting trauma
Come, master tempter of mankind
And lead the black mass
As the room is occupied
With gory, rotting bodies
Of the recent tormented
All the fucking enslaved
Who were whipped and sliced in the end
Bloody pentagrams engraved
For our sacrilegious dedication
In this dim room of the ripped and tattered
I raise my bleeding hands...

Nights like tonight when I should be falling apart
Iím fine. Heads clear, feet on the ground, lets keep moving along.
This is almost right by being wrong.
Perhaps Iím another Alice, and this is my wonder land.
All that is wrong is right, and the only thing to be wrong is what is right.
Wonderland is a dangerously, wonderful, dangerous place. Even Alice got lost and confused in her own sleepy head.
Poor little Alice, if I were in Wonderland would I wish I were dead?
No, couldnít! Could I? All the wrong I had done would be right in Wonderlands law.
Nights like...

I walk these halls with an empty heart
Hanging lights flashing off and on
Echoes of screaming bouncing off the walls
Choking on a dusty fog
While cockroaches crawl on the floor
Whispering a secret dialogue....
Im using the pain
That you **** into my brain
You made me **** crazy
I'm using the rage
That spreads like wildlife in my veins
Im using this to guide my way
To find you, to find you
The one who made me sick.
Eyes white as a spiders egg
A nervous bleeding in my brain
Stumbling through the eyeless dark

i am nothing special
but i am me
you are a liar, thief,
total wanker
a walking talking misery

i may be satisfied
with holding hands
a peck on the cheek
you want to fuck me
each and every way
treat me like meat

i am nobodys fool
certainly not your mule
you are the king of cruel

so i am taking a step back
2 fingers up to you
and to your crap
hope next time you
feel the need to get high
you end up
fucking a guy

who the fuck are you anyway !!

wanna rattle the grave
and wake the fucking dead
with the fire i spit
between these teeth.
you know it's about damn time
that someone stands the fuck up
and speaks their part of mind.
can't keep this mouth shut
too many speaking of nothing
spending day in and day out
reaching for their burnt out stars

my Sister screams from the mountaintop,
but her cries perish in silence & sorrow.
her crudeness belies her heartís trepidation
for the death of art, long buried in obscurityís
grave. we...

Trembling with rage
Excitement from hate
All that I've felt
Brings back what I've dealt
When I think back
I just want to hack
Away at her life
With only my knife
The wrong that she's done
Being repaid ten to one
Brings me nothing but joy
It's you I employ
To preform my sin
The murder from within

DU Poetry : Dark Poems about Death, Horror and Evil

You're the killer of emotions
And the breaker of hearts
You, the saboteur of love
Will die
Not by me
But by yourself
Because it's all the more entertaining
And satistying

††No grave shall contain  
Shall return on the morrow...
The name engraved therein is my own
Memento mori.  An echo in stone.

Perfect score, connect the dots
Random Bob can call the shots
Picks up Mary Honeythighs
So his betrayal comes as no surprise

Cup of joe, just make it noir
Add some luster to this scar
That psycho couple's tough to shake
And this private dick can't catch a break

So Los Angles down we go
Get there fast and cook them slow
Too many sorrows left to drown
So suck it up and blow this town.

Come dear, and lets go
ill take you to evenings bliss
to stare into
this beautiful abyss
a dream you could almost kiss
and you'd never want to miss
and take it in
you could have
all of this
but I can't give it away
and to you
the colors are absent
cause your so bent
on turning away
but may you find god
and may you run back
this is what id say
if I wasn't to late
A so long
a goodbye
but I couldn't mutter
these words
your voice is ringing deep
and stealing my sleep
the words you'd stutter

The sea ever morphing ever changing
Taking lives without a second thought
Tsunamis hitting defenseless villages
Hurricanes striking little New England towns
From the sky blue Caribbean
To the flinty Maine Atlantic
Hides malicious creatures
Ready to drown for the hell of it
And demonic entities
Waiting for the time to rise from the depths
And take back the world
When most think of the sea they think
It's a cruel beauty
Staying pristine while slaughtering thousands
Drowning the guilty and...

Plunged into a dark well of uncertainty

My ego's perfectly tailored mask rips off my face and floats in the light

As my body sinks down a narrow endless flight

Reality's brightness dissipates through the lifeless water

Feelings of fear and confusion
drown me,

Then calm me,
As I become like the water

Translucent and cold

My body still sinks, but
I am no more.

Can I stop?
I donít know whats wrong today.
Can I stop?
What is this shadow I see?
Can I stop?
I feel it staring at me.
Can I stop?
Donít you see the eyes?
Donít you hear his evil lies?
Can I stop?
I donít remember holding the gun,
But he told me a game both gruesome and fun.
Can I stop?
The teeth hissed out a cruel truth.
My friend told me to end this youth.
Can I stop?
Canít you feel his claws on your skin?
Heís dug them so far in me,...
