Your walking through a mist yet your heart aches for moonlight.
You feel drained and out of breath, while you wander through the night.
Its like your blind in the fog, dulling all your senses.
All you hear is is silence, though you feel a strange presence.
you know your moving, though you can't feel a thing.
When the mist rolls away, the sight is quite disturbing.
The mayhem that is at your feet fills you full of terror.
Though you don't know what you did, you know it was an error.
You didn't really want to, but you know its your last breath.
With only...

She teases me with the smell of late October
The midnight caressing of new found lovers
Beneath the autumn moon, she proclaimed to me
That the seeds of love will forever bloom
The streets fill with the living dead
For the ceremony when tragedies are wed
With powdered bone, our road was paved
We watch with apathy
When napalm sweeps through your sad parade
Make the winter rain stay faraway
When burning leaves fail to light the way
We find ourselves lost in the shadows
When things that slither awake below ...

I see all the glares sent my way
Hear all the whispers behind my back
It's just one more horrid day
Just another bloodless attack
Is my pain invisible,
To all the wandering eyes?
Is every bystander unable,
To hear all my cries?
They continue their paths
Seeing only what they want to see
Unwilling to take the bullies wrath
As soon as one approaches they flee
Like fish away from the shark
Do nothing, hurt no one, right?
Wrong! Bystanders leave their mark
We call out, but no one hears our plight
They all see our scars
None care...

Love I can't help myself
This is what I am
Love I can't help myself
I'm unhappy with where I am
Out here I'm like a fugitive
Out here no peace for me
At night I dream of living well
Dawn brings insanity
I'd wished there will never come a day
When you'll see me fall
But now I'm falling from grace to grass
Fate is taking from me my all
I wish I could feign the happiness
And make you see me bright
The stress is just too much to bear
I never see the light
Love I can't help myself
Love the hour is near
You...

From cradle to the battle ground
From the battle ground to the bier
Look here is what I found
It is all a set up here
What gives is what takes
What is gained is lost
What makes is what breaks
What betrays is what you trust
To be happy is an illusion
Look now we are left with frowns
If we didn't dream of high positions
What would have let us down?
Everything we are made to desire
Everything we keenly chase
Is leading us straight to the fire
That very scary place
As aspiring royals we leave the womb

What do you want from me
I’m hurt enough
it’s time you  set me free
I’m  so tired of theses chains
sick of running
Too fed up with your games
I’m done holding your knife
You don’t own me
Hear me this is MY LIFE
“But now listen here” you say
“I love you
no one else cares that way”
With your point to be made
You whispered
You urged and gave the blade

Binds tighten on my wrist
I go numb
Can’t fight the thoughts you twist
Blood boils and and bubbles out
with anger and sham

Raped          
Pillaged          
& plundered          
Owned slaves          
Spread disease          
Committed incest          
Tasted human flesh          
Caved babies skulls          
           
Those beautiful eyes          
A cringing at snakes          
Your nose's shape          
There was more          
Passed down          
Lying within        
Lurking

Written by Robert Benaditus
So it seems, that distant dreams,
have been ruptured at the seams.
Constant duress, that I try to express,
is merely a fleck, of the bitterness.
This lonesome heart, withering apart,
is drained of the love it would impart.
In this mind, hopelessly blind,
Hopes for relief have long resigned.
What can be expected? Abused and neglected...
this soul is an embodiment of the rejected.
I now wander, deeply I'll ponder...
about the years that I will squander.

It takes a bottle to end a life...
It takes a girl to destory a love...
It all begins with a single pill
Nights without rest or eyes to dream...
Tears shed like rain by her tired eyes...
No one is home to watch her end this...
End the tormenting nightmare that devours her alive...
There no more crying in her friends arms about the pain...
There no speaking of the nightmares to her family about him...
It takes one wish that will never come true:
"Neko, I wish you were here to save me..."

DU Poetry : Dark Poetry - Dark Poems about Death, Horror and Evil

Published on 4th May 2015 2:24am
Written by ilovescarystories
Thy token and taken for a most lamentable day.
This is the false paradise, as they say.
This is the fools pair of eyes.
Then surely and truly this lamentable day is true.
For in fear I choose to ignore ones own truth.
For I am lost within thy hooded mask.
Taken in by thee, by your token I fall to you.
For thou is the Goddess of my heart.
Suppress me not, foul vultures.
I am lost in your bloodily gaze.
So twirl for me baby.
Twirl for me my good wife.
Like your midnight colored dresses.
To this steady sleep we have made...

Written by Tristique
Anytime I find myself alone, I cry, and not always with a concrete reason. I seem to need it. It tears through me like the slice of noise when the forgotten car window is cracked open at high speeds. I think I have been lying to and running from myself for so long, whenever I catch up, I can only resort to wordless grief.
I will never be myself with my father. There are so many artificial borders painted around the table – the table that is constantly between us. I feel better if there is a table to buffer the blows, to cling to in high gales and through crashing waves. What else can...

Written by winterwrought
you've been to the other side
one november night
and you've had nothing to hide
with your silent tongue
mouthing things we couldn't bring
ourselves to understand
or interpret
wondering still what they were
wondering what you meant
after the words went
wondering if we've let you down
somehow
and I hope you realize from
wherever you are now
that we tried our best
you've seen the other side
on one late-autumn day
and you've had nothing to hide
with your silent tongue
conferring with the dead

to see someone you love
turn into someone you barely recognize
leaves you at your wit's end
the ordeal takes its toll
to see someone you love
turn into something you don't recognize
means you can no longer pretend
that things will go back to normal
these are the times now
when the past seemed so pleasant
and the future looks to be foul
you can close your eyes all you want
driving down this narrow road
but you'll only be getting yourself killed
and interred in the cemetery up the hill
feeling like...

I'm trapped behind a wall of glass
On display for everyone to see
My flaws are here, just like open wounds
To be picked at for sadistic needs
Screaming my rage, pounding against the slab
Desolation is my destiny
Either misery or apathy
Lost in myself as I reach for the ax
The house is haunting and screws are turning
In the dark when our pyres are burning
My synapse has relapsed
Breaking the spirit without warning
I stare back from behind the glass
And can see smiling faces, grinning truth
Step back, the cracks are getting...

This wounded dark heart of mine only feels despair and hate,
the end is coming soon how much longer will I have to wait?
The days are becoming lonelier and shorter,
death is close by it's right around the corner,
I have met the devil and seen the grim reaper,
the world is hiding from me and I am the seeker,
I let myself get consumed by desolation,
I'm so messed up death is my fascination,
I wish for once I could see a brighter day,
but I know for sure there's more pain on the way,
I am invisible only seen by the lonely,
death is my only...

Nothing comes at ease
Except tears and blood
Nothing close to peace
In my miserable world
I wonder if I'll ever survive
In a world of endless pain
The only time I feel alive
Is when I think of not breathing again
I've so much grief
But where do I take my case?
Pain endure,joy is brief
Smile eludes my face
So I'm mean mugs and hard stares
Trying not to explode
Trying hard not to flare
Within is so much anger to offload
Coldness in my heart
Freezing hard as ice ...

Four walls inch closer.  A gossamer net floats down from a great height cocooning her, getting tighter…tighter.  Unmotivated, she doesn’t dress; plans don’t eventuate.  She moves between two rooms, her mind filled with confetti of thoughts; a rain of sadness turning them to slush.  Day turns overcast dark.  Temperature drops below zero. Outside is harsh and frosty, inside suffocating, strangling her.  For a few moments, or was it longer, she understood why some felt so vacuous, so desolate, so alone, as to think what reason was there for living, their life could end this very moment. With no...
