The house, dark--locked doors behind which secrets floated. My emotions were like poison to me and all others. Weak, debased, I turned to a place where no one judged;
Compulsions undescribed No outlet for emotions A cage of my own making But I forgot the door Tick tock Goes the clock Ticking my thoughts away Deeper and deeper inside my cage

To my nightly lover: You are just a phase I grow out of in the morning and the excuse i come crawling back to at night I never needed a reason to dream

I used to shine bright, I was warm and comfortable. I was hopeful. I loved myself. But over time I began to falter. I slowly began to dim, I began to turn to black.

The structure is creaking from the wind drifting by No one is home No one’s alive An overgrown garden entangled with vines Reaching for something it will never find

It curls and snarls and breathes in my ear, memories of darkness and grief reappear. Closed are the curtains and closed are the shutters. Midnight moves slowly and stands almost still.
With the darkness around me I am lost. I am no longer near my home. I hear the waves crashing against the shore just like the waves of my anxiety smothering any light left inside me. I fell so contained by this darkness.
Laughter fills the room but a place empty No flowers were to bloom Just a late night memory They come and they go

Darkness is a dream come true for creatures of the night.
Once destined to be forgotten in darkness To not recieve any sort of hope But instead was abandoned by all Until one day a miracle happened A hand reached out to me
Seem to be white skies,but there is no light in my eyes. Maybe blank to you but i see cover of shawdow,there are no butterflies just vicious snakes in the meadows. Cold bodies and no coverups beneath the moon,no sun appearing anytime soon.
The world is dark. The world is cruel The world is careless The world is bleak Those very thoughts cross my mind daily.
Tick Tock the clock mocks straight from up ahead As I lay, Time keeps pounding down upon my head. My head lays heavy on the dark blue sheets of my bed No matter what I do sleep is something that I dread.

I wish I could see the person
Encapsulated in an island of soot and ash, Shrouded in poisonous smoke, my eyes strain to see the star,

Wonderment touches understanding but barely recognizes it
In the hanging garden. Death. Death is calling. It wants. It needs. For me. To be set free.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a very dark place.
There is a girl in the corner.
What if i told you there is hope? What if I told you there is an end? Would you believe me?

Take off the filters layered on a picture and when wiped away all that barely remains is the thin frame bruised by words, and a cluttered dark mind that manages to produces fields of wildflowers.
Echos of the night fade into the darkess that embrases my every move. Surrounding me, the darkness fills my lungs like tar. I am an animal of the darkness but I am alone.

So many thoughts running through her mind... So many questions, assumptions of why all of this happened Her heart can only take so much pain, yet she doesn’t understand why she can kill it already.

There were so many sleepless nights, days where you'd lie in bed, and hardly even bother to see the light. You couldn't find a reason, but you were just broken.
Peace cannot be found here Only oblivion is final peace Demons are everywhere here
Darkness consumes me. My surroundings slowly seep into my body. I have no control over my body. I try to move but something has tied me down. All I can feel is the tears that roll down my face.
Dark laughs at the fight
The world around me it's as if it was a world of darkness but in reality all that is around me is light Everyone is laughing havng a good time. As I sit here wondering if the sun
A stranger... A feeling... True or not Days, Months, Years... Friends, Best friends, lovers... One day, eyes are on her Slowly Slowly dissapear infront... of my eyes...
I was terrified.
What you see is only one side of me. The outside seems to be full of glee But the inside is completely different That I can guarentee. Worries, Worries, Worries Fill my head in sequential flurries.
I’m wrapped up tight within my sheets Behind my curtains blows a gust Up and down the lonely streets Calm my heart, this I must As the shadows find me still In gentle dreams can I trust?
Screaming inside, no one can hear it, I know when I die, I'll be a sad spirit. Concealed with pain, I lock myself in,
With a heavy heart, my tears pour
Night after night, into the miserable hours of another weary morning, I waste my time lying restlessly in a bed too familiar. Tiny branches of red
Daisies are a friendly flower, Kathleen Kelly had it right They bring a cheer to any room They bring a certain light I wish I had some daisies here As I sit in the near-dark
Green and white clothes with a hat just too big, tiny yellow shoes waiting for the day.
She hides in the shadows, this girl I’ve seen,

You are a star. Not a bright, burning ball of gas somewhere so far away in the atmosphere that we can only see a small speck. Not an actor, or singer, or dancer, or some other famous person that is famous only for being famous.
A perfect picture of one’s life A perfect answer to one’s crime.
If I was not alone, how joyous I would be, The smiles upon their faces no longer a mystery. I surrounds myself with hundreds, even thousands of my Friends.
When I’m on the white sand shore in the world of my muse, I could swear that it is during the death of night that the world is most alive.

If you choose to do so
Fear storms through the dark endless skies Where it seems that land can only exist at night Where thugs rule the world and parents hide behind doors Hypocritically stating,"the world is yours"
I lurk in the darkI am your fear, your regret, your worryActing like a judgemental jury I slink around in the pits of your heartGnawing on your soulMaking you pay your toll

“Depression” I’m tired of wearing the painted grin That mocks me and all of my sin. The pain of my soul and my mind
You say that I've changed but you're the reason i'm so cold. Get out of my head, the fights quickly get old. You've made me so heartless something I knew nothing of. Once you broke my heart,
The quiet darkness that slipped in through the tiniest slits and sat growing and festering, Has all but swallowed me whole. Thick black curtains sequestering the light with in my soul.
Such a beautiful soul Flying free Soaring over mountains Limitless as can be No one can bring her down
Such a beautiful soul Flying free Soaring over mountains Limitless as can be No one can bring her down
Marked by shades Chained by judgment Being blinded by false imagery Colors of white to dark Long plagued our kind
A savage beast it is, Crawling through the darkest realms This heart is an abyss, Disguised by rotting, barren elms Tear through broken glass, You've nothing to behold
I dream in black and whiteI bleed the color of your eyes All I can see is your lipsGently glazing over mine As the sun setI saw my rose petals in the flame
A Shadow among the Darkness Lingering among wood, hear his footsteps move the earth Tranquil in sound, with transitioning beauty within the nothing Black light swirls over the endless night
There is a fire that wells inside of my stomach A raging flame slowly burning every inch of my flesh as darkness settles over inching creeping
After the darkness cleared from my head And all of the words that he said disappeared I took one good hard look at myself and realized I was happy
And all these little things They build up inside Turning your light into dark They rupture the protective wall That we think saves us from all the hurtful things

For Kathy, the girl who managed to break my heart. Thanks for the memories.
He held her hand in his bone achingly tight; his jaw clenched with bravado while his legs shook in fright. She was cold to the touch, itsy bitsy chills; eyes bright with life,

A sadness so deep A darkness so sad nothing, no one, anyone you can never you will never Touch your knees with your nose Hide, from it all World fading

At a crossroads we stand, Our heels in the sand, A decision weighs heavily, On our soon-reborn band.
Forced to be bruised by rough dry earth. Forced to be touched by the whiskey breath. Forced to be laid down on dirty sheets. Forced to live in fear of another's touch. Forced to carry life within womb.

In the dark of the night I face my window with open eyes I hesitate to bring back happy thoughts Despite being trapped where the fear lies My memories bring neither peace nor comfort
The darkness doesn't always mean evil, Just like the light does not always mean good. Thinking for yourself isn't always a bad thing. Right and wrong is an opinion. Decisions blind. Outcome unpredictable.

Maroon- the color of crimson love, fermented Of December midnights, mingled with the tears of flesh Of sweet agony, smoldering behind hazel eyes Of you and I, trying to escape Desire
Darkness. I fancy myself as one who knows darkness. Not that darkness is something wonderful to know, In fact, it comes like a thief in the night and steals.
Voices haunt my sleep. Soaring shadows awaken my soul. Falling far, far, far down into the depths of ruins and caves you left empty for my arrival.

Alone and cold, it grows so old. Scared to leave, nothing to achieve. The rose wilts, the scale tilts. Loves dies, hate flies. Passion gone, nothing to pawn. The black swallows me,
I creep forward, advancing toward the dark hand that beacons me It motions for my advancement, yet my instinct restrains the movement of my feet Tugging and yanking at my weak knees, the hand forces me onward
Scared? Frightened? I used to be all those things until, I met silence. It welcomed me with a cold hug. I hated it. No, I wasn't mute, and never will be, sadly. But sometimes I wished I could be mute.
The mask I wear. The whispered dreams at night. The long scars and small tears. The shadow hidden and out of sight. What I am on the outside, middle, inside, Which one is real, which do I hide?

The petals fall off the flower And drop slowly toward the floor Each second between the petals I spend inching towards the door For, I just can’t wait to leave Though I wish that I could stay

Into the darkness, I reach out a hand, where shadows play and light is banned. My breathes decline and I gasp for air, this has become a deadly game of truth or dare. Do I dare to escape from this place,

Somewhere, over the monochromatic archAcross the skyThe shadows of twisted figures against the sunWrithe and shriek A daunting vision brings forthAn unsettling fearThe cries shake the earthAs the shadows grow The horizon begins to burnA blinding

I can see, but I am blind. I can hear, though I am deaf. I can speak, yet I am mute. I find myself wandering, like a spirit, Walking the same path over. I cannot tell if a dream has taken me
I sit here wondering where I'll be. In this darkness I sit and wonder. Where is my hero? I have to be my own hero. My own hero. I have to save myself. I am the one who holds the key to happiness.

A small girl sits waiting for someone, something, anything That can save her from the ever present Darkness closing in and Suffocating the life out of her already shattered and crumbling soul.
Dig away from all the dissappointment I get lonley in caves all by myself. Thoughts lose everything all in the moment, Scraping nails upon walls, all blood runs high.

I am like the dark. A vast, intricate enigma. Everybody can see that I’m there. Some people choose to embrace me. I do not seek, but lie in wait. Few people can understand some of me, some of what I hold.

Bound by silence, my mind a cell. Blinded, deafened- can't hear the bell. The bell that sounds freedom to speak My blinded eyes struggle to peak Into the land of harmony- A place where darkness cannot be.

As the sunlight slips between my fingertipsI watch the shadows fallThey fall in lacy breaths over my skin,Making darkness and light seem so intricate

Beneath the moonlight I make my way, Clearing out the fog From the glare of day. The darkness tempts But does not take. She dances to me, But does not seduce. I do not deny her,
What is a best friend?, I ask I can sit and ponder all day, But I can't pretend the thought doesn't last, Someone I can confide in, lean on, laugh, and cry, It's something, a feeling, that most people would die
That lonely black house on top of that hill Away from the white houses… It separates from the world… That white room inside that black house All the way deep end of the hall…
I’m in the dark Loneliness trickling over me like dripping pipes Hope has ran away So far away that I cannot breath When I reach out I expect to find nothing but the damp air But instead I feel a hand
Of the darkness emerging from our souls, beyond threshold of the black mire falling headfirst into the pits dying, our souls
We're so tired of this world and all its' evil, Tired of the horrible and fake people Tired of the murder, the lies, and all the pain, Tired of the bullying, the cheating, the earthly ways
In the dark of night, The aroma's sweet smell breaks through every window, door and crack. Love, happiness and joy all seem to be provoked in the still of the silence.
Facebook asking me to write something Asking God to leak inspiration from my veins Open the floodgates of Heaven and pour out my pain It pains me, that I am not living to my full potential
The hands of time slowed down and opened onto a scene. There stands a man with his shadow casted over a small form.
Turn out those lights and darken this room. The temperature's down, it feels like a tomb. Breath coming ragid and heart beating fast. Waiting for this attack to finally pass. Shutting my eyes to block out my mind.

What can be defined as an arena void of light? An absence of Knowledge? Where you cannot fight Against the circumstances that are difficult to acknowledge. Could it be darkness?
I had a dream Where a world was free It never mattered who you are but what you will become I am fighting for a dream where I can be free It doesn't matter who I am Just what I want to become

Falling. The fresh taste of blood salts my lips. Rage. How dare I dream about a future that may never come? For dreams bring the pain, despair of hope. Hope for the better. Anything better.
Butterfly baby, traveling way too fast. Uncertianity is her future; Darkness haunts her past.
Laugher, Delight, Pain, Fright, One is Light, The other is Night.
You thought you could escape. You will suffer as I have suffered. I am not what I was, I am what I will be. You will never respond.
A hundred and forty feet below, Tones of tan and brown are seen Under light they've never known.
Tick tock goes the clock Seconds in our life gone To no end We are dying, I am dying I do not fear it however I embrace the blackness Let it consume me Wallow in self pity, for it is me
