Written by Le_Roi_En_Jaune
The low-lights create the perfect ambience,
May I have this dance?
A scene that only dreams could manufacture,
The audience is in a trance.

My feet bleed, when will it stop?
I have had enough of dancing,
For the entertainment of an unknown audience,
 † † †-To the music of nightmares.

I finally break, stopping my waltz,
I cast away my dance partner,
Mannequins, to mannequins,
I face the cameras, and scream.

You never forget your mistakes.

At least you'll always remember me.

The way you infected me with your energy.

The many ghosts of you still sing.

How many lives have you had?

Cherished or wasted...

How many times will you stand,

and hold hands with hatred?

Sometimes you made sure the world noticed when you weren't around.

But most of the time you preferred

Dying quietly...

gaze on the aggressor, as his face stairs back
i can't escape this
i can't run and hide, the dies been cast
signed on the dotted line
the deed too my life's in his hand
strategic deal with the devil a gamble i intend too win
i can't fold this hand the consequences are far too great
if you only knew who was speaking this would be easier too understand
its the demon on my shoulder sweetly whispering those dear sweet nothings
with that bitter taste i crave down too my soul
the temptation is so much more then i can resist
its agony in true...

As we grow more and more
we start to realize there is a limit
As we show no remorse
Days become hours and hours become minutes
Minutes become moments forced
Forced into memories succumbed by visions
Flashes of comets on due course
Coursing through our veins the incisions
Of lives we loved and hated...
We count up the day's we spend together
Loving every moment and smile
We count down the days we spend tethered
Fucking everyone around on trials
We judge everything around us forever
Seems like we walk millions of...

shes a mother
so she weeps,
worry, cook, clean the house and put all those kids to sleep.
then the father comes home... evil in his eyes, mom is like "what have i done wrong"
angry as ever, instantly blood everywhere,
now the children all awake,
now the children stay awake.
now the children pray for sleep.
us and mom we'll never sleep again,
father comes and goes, we wish he'd find his end
three lives are ruined, and one man is proud.
How is he human, how is he, how?
How are we human, how are we, how?
Just look, are we human,...

Her Knight And Shining Armour Never Came,
She Was The One to Blame
Was it all her Fault..?
Was She the Problem..
Her Knight And Shining Armour Never Came,
Her Tear Stained Face,She Sits There Crying And Holding the Blade,
The Blade That he Told Her to Put Down,
Her Knight And Shining Armour Never Came,
Was She to Blade,
Her Stained Arms,Tear Stained Face,Pale Skin,
Along With a Blade,Clutched In her Hand..
She Finally Gave Into Those Fucking Voices..

Forgetting its name in the dark of night--
Towering;
Universally
Travelling;
Forgot Their name,
And how They played Their game;
Looking for silence inside this broken screen--
Stumbling;
Thinking;
Swearing;
Looking for silence,
But finding only defiance;
Doubting the existence of the thinker--
Running;
Shrieking;
Remembering;
Doubting the existence,
And unable to find emotional assistance;
Loving the nights that crawl by without incident--
Quieting;
Racing;
Quitting;
Loving the nights,...

Walking away she turned her back,
On everything she'd held so dear,
Her hopes,her love had flown alack,
There was nothing left to really care.
Somehow he found her lonely there,
All alone in a lightless room,
Sad,shaky,shrinking in fear,
Broken down in a state of gloom.
His stare beared a mystical look,
His godly figure beamed with life,
Like a knight from the story books,
For once she wandered off her strife.
His voice gentle,soft and nice,
She could no longer hold within,
For once she looked into the stranger's eyes,...

to mak the hardest decision
ever to know that you all are
gone for good yep im giving up
giving up on nothing thats there
why me why did this have to happen to me
some will say you desrved it some will say
you never loved enough and some will just say
a whole heap of bullshit and the world beleives it
but the simple truth is that couldnt break away in time
for your new family instead you tried to keep two familys because you still loved me †but 2 into 1 dont go so your child hood sweet heart who stuck by you ,loved you gave you a family was told...

Written by BrokenRedemption RedeemingMisfit
Death and decay rotting of the flesh,
The earth swallowing me whole and feeding off my mess.
No song is sung to say goodbye,
On a bed of dirt is where I lie.
Eyes closed as if I were in sleep,
Across my corpse the bugs will creep.
No hymnal is chorused to bid farewell,
Deep into the ground so far I have fell.
Arms folded over my unmoving chest,
Too my forehead my last rights are pressed.
No lullaby is whispered to mourn the dead,
A pillow of soil to cradle my head.
Skin to ashes and bone to dust,
Unmarked grave No headstone,...

Written by ifsheonlyknew
I saw the good in her.
Sweet, gentle, kind,
Playful.

But something was not right.
A half-smile that said,
"If he only knew."

The inconsistencies grew,
And a shadow fell.
Her shine...tarnished.

And she grew darker and blacker
in my mind.
No way for her to bring back the light.

So there she remains, bound in darkness.

I wanna hurt you, baby
Just to hear your screams
You look so beautiful
But not everything is as it seems

Your soul is dirty
Just like your hands
Youíve done nasty things
But your soul is still bland

Youíre gonna end up dead one day
About that Iím sure
You know whatís coming to you
Iíve told you that much before

Still, you keep coming back
I am where you want to be
But you might not want it quite as much
When youíre hanging from a tree

Written by Law_Lith_Iminika
And then everything
Was still and silent;
Land pressed up beneath me,
Solid and unmoving;
I was sitting before a home,
Covered in ivy;
Covered in teeth and
Emitting a golden light;
It was the day of my wedding,
That was this evening;
He was standing at the door,
Dressed for a ceremony;
Dressed up and weeping,
The light shined across his tears;
The skies swayed around
Where I perched;
Each tooth shone in the light,
Glimmering with human origin;
I knew that he was pleading to
Many gods,...

Written by Caged_Raven
The demon inside me is taking over
Slowly but surely plucking away
Removing whatever is left of my sanity
And leaving my heart an artifact of vanity
I yearn for the feel of cold steel on flesh
the pain makes me feel alive again
The blood reminding me that I am still human
Each cut releasing my inner reminiscences
My soul cries out for the grave
but the ground has no bed for me
i only find such peace when I dream
and even then i just wake and scream
The bottle only fuels my inner inhibition
I make self destruction such a...

Hate darkens with unknown lust
executing as disillusioned trust.
Humiliation in words suffocate
while dirty wars manipulate.
 
the Reaper in a poncho, a masked gunslinger
black liquid sorrow, steady trigger finger
we ran like bandits, shameless & naked
laid to rest on a canopied bed...

Written by HadesRising
She once was the world, everything to me
Now she is but a whisper spoken among the trees
A budding rose in a red velvet dress
Her hair blowing gently in the windís caress
Beauty meant for eyes of the lords
To gaze upon her meant penalty
A cold death by the sword
Fevered nights along the moon swept shores
The waves crashing gently as she begged me more and more
A falling star that granted her one wish
For one short season of endless peaceful bliss
The summer of magical nights
But at the dawning Autumnís curse
Came frigid eveningís blight...

†When I come upon you,I'm at a loss for words.
Hurt by you so much, all I want to do,
Is crawl away and die.

 †I need to slide the blade, across my flesh.
That feeling of releasing everything, about you
Out of me. †Im at a loss for words.

 Feeling great as I cut, knowing it's to make
You go away. Every part of you, flows from deep
Within me, in thus a river of blood.
 †
 †A loss of words for you,
Because your slowly killing me.
Now as i slowly die, remember it's you that,
Brought me to my death.
