Written by Lonelygirl06
Traces and pieces of the past I have collected,
I'm thinking of ways to die I'm dejected,
all of my memories are dead,
another tear I have shed,


I have left behind and forsaken,
all of my wonderful creations,
a dark side of me the mirror has reflected,
in my veins a dose of poison has been injected,


I'm future less the past has ravaged me,
in my reflection a hurt girl is all I see,
nothing is what I love everything is what I hate,
you can't revive my dead bloody heart it's too late.

Dressed to impress,
He steps in time with the beat,
Longing stares and unawares are the welcomes of the weak,
Eyes wide in the thrill of it all,
How quickly the sheep fall to the beast.
Hollow words fill empty hearts,
False wisdom he imparts,
With a suit of skin and a button up lie,
Save face,
Masks don't cry.
Chewed up and spit out,
With nothing to lose,
Blood pours from gaping wounds,
Anything to staunch the flow,
No telling how far they will go,
Wanting comfort from the pain,
The prey seeks out the beast in vain....

mother, i’m sorry.
i tried so hard
but i failed again.
i fell right back down.
my head hurts;
i think it hit the floor.
mother, i’m sorry.
the bottle was full last week.
only a drop remains.
it falls onto the floor.
the precious drop,
my precious drop,
forever gone.
mother, i’m sorry.
it was too much to bear.
i had no more money.
i tried not to.
i had to cope.
i took out my old friend
and sliced away.
mother, i’m sorry.
i only want the feeling of peace, ...

Blood drips from every direction
My skin is numbed from every invisible stab
I tell myself everyday
one day at a time.
Cold hearted from pain
Loneliness stirs from deep within
Tired at everything.
Blood flow weakens.
Shock from each nerve
signals the brain to shut off
I've never known pain this grand.
I've come to realized that I'm possibly killing myself.
That's okay, I dealt with three years
I can deal with more.
The fate changes slowly
the morbid minds quickly hastens
thoughts, sounds, egotistical fears...

A blur, a gust of wind
My thoughts, I'm lost within.
A crash, the seeds of change
My body, it feels so strange.
Confusion, the seeds of doubt
My mind, I'm lost without.
The colors, they bend and swirl
My spirit, who is this girl?
A scream, they weep and moan
My will, I feel it go.
The darkness, it closes in
My vision, it grows so dim.
A hand, it holds my own
My feelings, I'm going home...
A coffin, she lies inside
Her family, they screamed and cried.
The service, was short and sweet
Her mother, she wouldn't eat.

I looked inside the tiny iron cage
That held a lonesome singing bird
It cried of hatred, dread, and rage
But they were only what the bird heard
It didn't know these emotions
Nor did it know any at all
It was far too worried, too cautious
It wouldn't leave so it wouldn't fall
It loved it's cage made of iron
It loved it's knowledge, it's small world
Because it couldn't hear the sirens
That told it, it was not a bird, but a girl
A girl who didn't know anything
Who only knew the feeling of herself alone
So she craved for...

It was non-violence
that hurt me.
Cold silence
that burned me.
You fed on my
weakness
and my life fell
apart.
I begged you
and pleaded.
No please, just
don't start.
You sat there
just watched.
The beatings,
no stops.
My anguish
amused you.
My blood it
enthused you.
You'd silently gaze
as I screamed there
in pain.
Your presence
entrapped me
as I searched for
escape.
The bruises
were nothing.
Your laughter
was death.
My heart was
in pieces

Morning and new light,
Expect nothing but a fight;
No awakening kisses;
Cold as when I'm dismissed;
All you ever do is think;
Never touched the can, I can't even drink,
Because the moment I'm unaware,
Every mistake made is when you seem to care;
All you obsess over is your dominance;
Never your kids or any outside circumstance;
I have never been that important to you;
Maybe you should finally accept we're through;
A letter came in the mail this morning;
Looks like we owe more then you said, our last warning;
Sometimes I...

I've had enough my world is slowly falling apart
barely breathing from my defeated heart
A thousand times this light in my soul has vanished
can you hear the sound of my diminishing heart beat
I look in the mirror for hours not knowing what it feels like to be whole
all I see is a reflection of an unfamiliar face that I once knew
eyes full of disgrace as I'm standing in shadows of this sinister place
                       I s this all I have left

like a bird with a broken wing I've tried to fly on my own...

Widely stretched my tongue is loose
Far too hurt to tell the truth
O vengeance you brimmed me top
Wrenched over, squatting; my anger rot
Mounting the pain, I danced in your hands
Grief-straught upon your legions
I too began to squirm like a fly
Poor my vision; too tasteless; my eyes!
Scornful you striked me down
A fire from Hades I scorched the ground
No torture could amount to such rage
Bottled up and seized, I fill the cage
In silence I reached a nameless place
Hung high with decorations resembled your face
A threshold...

DU Poetry : Dark Poems about Death, Horror and Evil

Published on 30th September 2014 3:21am
Written by Law_Lith_Iminika
Herded
Like
Sheep;
Just wanted you to know
That you
Chose wrong;
You, in your mental straight-jacket,
In your self-crafted jail-cell;
I'm dying, you know;
Lost in the real world,
Because they're
Leashing us like we're dogs on the run,
Like we might be too dangerous loose,
Like me might bite the innocent--
But what about our own innocence?
Why aren't they letting us go at all?
Six days, that was the maximum,
Maximum time we had to stay here,
Stay in these damn stone cells,
In...

Written by Law_Lith_Iminika
Eleven days; Sixty years; Forgotten ways, and a few thousand beers;
Learning that everyone was in my head; Realization spreading like rage;
Everyone on the wanted page, are the some ones in the ground--dead;
Going down the list of names, searching for the bodies, the remains;
All around the early-morning fires, shivering, trying to stay ahead;
Nothing stands out amongst the shadows and badland thrones;
Tricks of the eye give way to nothing or deadly surprise;
Believing more then they could
Ever hope to understand;
All they ever wanted...

what do you do wean you want to die?
what do you do wean all you want to say goodbye?
what do you do wean all you hear is lies?
what do you do wean you don't want to live?
what do you do wean you're mad at the world?
what do you say wean someone asks you why you're crying?
what to do? what to say? wear to go? how to get there?
I know how to get to hell the answer is the knife in my bag...

Written by HadesRising
I speak from the peaks
To the god of war, Ares
You charge onto a field of battle
You cannot hope to win
In a war with the blood
Of your blood, for I am your kin
Ópla! Sto Étoimo!
Máchi! Sto thánato!
Violence rages in my veins
Clashing of weapons and thunder is all the same
As demigods form ranks in oblivion
The bolts of Zeus are on the loose
As the Earth Shaker strangles on the noose
Titans take to the world again
Upon the steps of Olympus
Ares did rut with lust
With a war maiden...

I love the smell of roses on the brink of death
Or the subtle change in the fragrance of your last breath
The end is so divine, entwined
With the mournful tunes of your last caress
Won’t... You...
Die for me?
Won’t... You...
Die for me?
I love the way you look for God to confess sins
And the way that your beneficial relatives grin
The greed is so divine, entwined
With that one last touch of your cold dead skin
Won’t... You...
Die with me?
Won’t... You...
Die with me?
Must I ask you please?

My hopes lie at my feet
Drenched in nothing but questions
Withered away to nothing
I feel myself cave in
Everything hurts.

A fire ignites and I watch
As my life burns to nothing but ashes
My screams echo in the silence of my mind
I feel my innerself clawing,
Trying to escape this hell
The fire dies and I feel myself fade
Into the never ending darkness...

Empty shell.
Please let me burn in hell;
it's what I deserve after all.
Don't try to help me up when I fall,
I'd rather you kick me in the teeth.
Just hit me when I'm down, please.
My head is hazy,
I feel wired.
I think I'm going crazy.
My throat burns from dehydration,
throwing up all hours of the night and
crying your eyes out can do that.
My nose is bleeding.
Drip drop, tick tock;
you're running out of time to save me.
I hope that you hate me,
at least then I'd know what you're feeling.
I'm...

I am a butterfly with its wings cut off .
Left alone on the ground to die .
I was happy I was full of joy but now the only thing I feel is pain all over my body.
I give up on trying to fly I give up on seeing the light.

The darkness is my forever home and there is no light in the sky.
The stars at night I once use to look at are dead now.
The sky I hold so dear is a fragment of my imaganation.
I dont hope for anything anymore I dont see the joy of this world anylonger.
I am a butterfly with it wings cut off...
