Written by Arthur
A Silent Night.
I sit upon this cold park bench
Watching the sun set behind the city.
As the light fades,
The city uncovered,
Out come the monsters of the night.
The protective sun
Hidden once more,
Its hold on the darkness broken.
On come the lamps
But they do not last,
As the monsters break those feeble shields.
The men come striding
They target the lights,
One shot after another.
The moonlight comes
Revealing the faces,
Of the men, come to get me.
The clouds come over
The moonlight...

Well are you ready
for your big date?
Good because we dont have
any time to waste.
Ok lets see.
We have your high heels,
corsage and new sequin dress.
Lest start with your hair
because its really a mess.
I will pin your short hair back
and up away from the face.
Im know you will be the
prettiest girl in the place.
His boutonniere looks so debonair.
I will be sure to take your
picture as soon as you get there.
Stop complaining .
Im almost done.
Believe me this will
be so much fun.
Yes...

I Can't breathe..
Every Breath I Take..
Causes My Heart To Break..
Life Doesn't Seem Worth It Anymore,
Imagining Myself..Bleeding To death On The Floor,
I Can't Breathe..
When The Memories Come Flashing Back..
The Painful Memories Take My Breath Away,
I Wish They Would Stay Away,
The Memories Of Me And You..O,So Happy..
Then The Memories Fade Away..
And Show Me What I've Become..
A Broken Girl That Hides Away Her Pain.
I Can't Breathe..
Life Doesn't Seem Worth It Anymore..
Imagining Myself Bleeding To Death On The Floor.

Written by Dally Parker Dallas_Fae_Parker
Is it odd to be the way that I am?
How am I even alive?
My past, is it not common?
To be normal, I always strive
You’ve never felt the pain
Of a parent’s death
Having them say they hate you
With their last breath
Your friends have always stayed
Never left you to die
They’ve never left you alone
With a simple goodbye?
You’ve never lost everything
Love, Laughter, and Home?
I thought it was normal
Being alone to roam.
Because I have no mother
And I have little of a father
You say my life is hard
And...

Little girl,
Why are your eyes so red?
Little girl,
Why is your skin so cut?
Little girl..
Little girl..
What is making you do this?
You're just a human,
So keep your life,
For you can only live once...

Little boy..
Little boy..
Why are your eyes so red?
Little..boy,
Why is your skin so red..?
Why are you doing this?
You're only a human..
You can only live once.

Why are you doing this?
Do not pity yourself,
People are asses,
Cheer up. (:

Written by Khloey-Jade RedeemingMisfit
No breath to breathe only to choke,
Body is beaten and bloody and broke.
Blood has been Split cuts narrow and sore,
Somehow I feel I deserve much more.
Cheeks wet from over flowing tears,
Bruises all over are plain and clear.
Tied down and tormented my body is used,
The assault will never stop it right to assume.
Order after order treat like a slave,
Beaten to compliance forced to behave.
Not one step out of line only one chance,
Going through this like stuck in a trance.
Blood and tears mix together but have to hide,
Forced...

“The Sorceress doesn’t have the Gem” the Queen replied. “She is still powerful, yes. But can be defeated. The King told me he hid it somewhere no one could find it”
“Oh yes, in the great labyrinth beneath the castle” said the Dark Prince. The Sorceress could always feel it, even when taken from her.  She survived the assassination attempt and managed to become your maid, infiltrating the  castle. She spent many nights searching all hidden corridors, feeling the Gem more and more but could never discover the way to it. And that was another reason she spared me. You see, she knew the...

the sky hovers over us
you and i stay here
we both know that we are immortal
that our souls are older than our vessels for eternity
there is no cure
not a gunshot to the head
not a pop of the artery
not a fall from a building
not even diving into a volcano
our previous life was short from what we did
now we are here again
knowing nothing can take us down
at night, we stay awake so we dont have to dream
for it is in our dreams, that leads us to desire
we stay awake so we dont have nightmares
but it is our...

DU Poetry : Dark Poems about Death, Horror and Evil

Published on 30th July 2014 4:27am
Written by Darker Half PsychicApocalypse
Shall We Be Toddlers Again?

We knew no meaning of words
So words weren't able to hurt.
We drew no promises from words
so it never did burn.
we knew nothing about
all the shouting and yelling,
we just panicked as the thin
walls vibrated.
we grew sad as mother suddenly
disappeared,
and we became closer when we found
Dad between buckets of beers.
Broken glass on tile floors,
like glitters making a pathway to the back door.
We walk to it, though the glitters turn red,
you started crying as our feet both...

My desires are never satisfied
No matter how hard I try
Like a force dwells high above
Waiting to see me cry
Ease has never been for me
To put it in simple terms
It's like I was made for unrest
To wrestle with ups and downs
I've seen many wild in elation
When their wishes are met
But for me watching is all I can do
With this tortured mindset
Trying to hide my worries behind phony smiles
But the pain is crystal clear
It's hard to move any further
When for tomorrow I fear
I look for consoling words in what is...

Wiping away the soaped over windows
Inside, the politicians
Making the fast buck
From your concerns, your woes
With their agendas
Self serving missions
Hear them declaring the shelves empty
In the backrooms of soup kitchens
As the poor
Weak
And tired
Line up outside the door
The hunger, thirst
Gone beyond insatiable
Need to feed
Supercedes any measure of self control
Disenchanted masses
With distended bellies never to be full
Salivating over the prospect of a wishbone
Eyeing the governing body...

She writhed violently in her grave
Eyes widened and dark with terror
Her lace gown clinging to her small frame
Dampened by glistening beads of sweat
Was this another venture in her mind
From the voices living in her head
Who beckoned her to this enclosed tomb
Instilling visions of doom and despair
Forming an illusion of her gliding towards the heavens
The sound of angels sweet harmonies drifting from afar
An oasis of beauteous splendor and tranquility
Just to have it ripped away, as she watches it all disintegrate before her
Vanishing into...

Cheap, simple, short

Sinking as a seed into the floor                        
Under an ever dimmer sun                            
Initial thoughts tell of a clear sky                    
Clouded they shut out the light                      
Ignorance compares itself to wilted flowers    
Dying beneath feeble streaks of rain                
Eager to lay within their roots

I can feel you scratching away back there I know what you want,
I can hear your voice as clear as day begging for the hunt.
I can feel deep in the back of my head clawing for release,
I can hear your screams They go on and never cease.
You want to control me and make me do things that scare,
You think that eventually I'll give in and hide myself in there.
I will not let you out no matter What you do,
I know some how locking you away is the best thing to get through.
You want to posses me and take over my fragile mind,
To keep you at bay I'll use...

Is it ok for me stay inside my room,
surrounded by darkness
all alone?

Is it ok for me to hate myself,
as if acted upon instinct?

Is it ok to lay on the floor thinking of
how pathetic i am?

I guess i'm not aloud to... but i do it any way :)

(something crazy I wrote a long time ago but figured I'd post it lol)
I want to get this pan ready
For your cold cold heart
Let's see if maybe I can
Burn some sense into it to start
Do not fear the friendly flame
For it is here to melt the ice
You wanted to play games
So I'm fucking done playing nice!
Remember all those times I died
And you told me it was worth the pain?
How I soaked grease up from your lies
And let you fry my heart in shame?
Well now it's time for my revenge
To show you just what it's like
When a girl comes...

I sway back and forward hands over my ears,
The yelling and screaming is all anybody hears.
I cry curled up in a small tight little ball,
Hating the arguing as I begin to fall.
Daddy stop yelling so loud release your fist,
I can hear your anger I can tell your Pissed.
Stop saying words that will get you put away,
It would kill me to see you go again I want you to stay.
Nanna please stop pushing dad I need you both to stop,
You both mean the world to me, you are my rock.
I can't watch you cry and dad go out in cuffs, ...
