Poetry

Welcome to the Poetry section. Here I will, unfortunately, divulge all of my past and present poetry. I tend to write poetry that is dark or slightly goth or emo but I certainly enjoy expressing myself. Although I think the world may not agree with that statement too much *hides*

Moving Forward

More emo poetry I am afraid! 

DRY THE STAINS FROM YOUR PILLOW
AND WALK, FORWARD INTO THE DAY
NAKED AS THE FLAME THAT BURNS
TROUBLED AS THE WATERS OF LIFE
 
IN THE PAST YOU LEAVE ANGER
IN THE PATH BEFORE YOU, CALM
IN THE HERE AND NOW, A JOURNEY
TO RECLAIM THE FORGOTTEN CROWN
 
ACTION TOO HARSH TO HOLD
REACTION INDIRECTLY SWIRLING
CRASHING ON THE BEACH WITHIN
RUSHING OVER PEBBLES OF PAIN
 
THE BLACKNESS COMES, MEMORIES FADE
THE PAST ERASES TO NOTHING
HIS STRONG EMBRACE SURROUNDS YOU
HIS BEATING HEART ABOUND
 
IN THIS PLACE, THERE IS WARMTH
A FLICKER OF LIGHT BEGINS TO CATCH
THRUST INTO THE OPEN, THE LIGHT
WHERE THE AIR WILL ERASE YOUR BLIGHT

Fire

This is a poem I wrote back when I was in High School. My English teacher at the time told me it was brilliant. I completely agree it is anything but, however, it was the birth of my first school crush!

I STRETCH AND I ROAR AS I REACH FOR THE SKY
GRASPING AT EVERYTHING THAT COMES TO MY EYE
BURNING AND CHARRING THE HOUSE IN THE WOOD
AN EMPTY SHELL IS WHERE IT ONCE STOOD
 
CREEPING ALONG THE FOREST FLOOR
REACHING AT ROOT, AT BRANCHES AND MORE
CHASING THE SQUIRREL AS IT LEAPS THROUGH THE TREES
CHASING THE DEER AS IT FALLS TO ITS KNEES
 
FEAR IS MY FUEL AS I GROW AS I SPREAD
EVERYTHING I TOUCH SOON WILL BE DEAD
REACHING THE ROAD THERE'S A NOUSE IN THE DISTANCE
SCREAMING A SONG DEMANDING MY PENANCE
 
SOON I AM FALLING, COLD AND ALONE
"BACK TO THE CABIN" I HEAR MYSELF MOAN
THE FLOOR OF THE FOREST, GLISTENING AND WET
AS I FEEL MY MATCH HAS TRULY BEEN MET
 
I FEEL THE PAIN AS I SHRINK AWAY
UNTIL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO SAY
SILENCE AND SORROW NOW FILLS THE NIGHT
I WILL RETURN AND THEN WE WILL FIGHT
 
 
 

Become

TRICKLE MY SOUL, THROUGH SPLINTERS OF GLASS
TARNISHED MY HEART , MAKING ONE FINAL PASS
BRITTLE THE TIME THAT COVERS MY BROW
HARVEST THE LOVE AND LIVE FOR THE NOW
 
TAKEN IN LUST AS I'M TAKING IN PRIDE
FEELING THE DARKNESS I ALWAYS MUST HIDE
BREAKING THE BONDS, TIGHT ROUND MY WINGS
HEARING THE WORLD, OH HOW IT SINGS
 
REACHING THE BRIDGE I TAKE LIKE THE WIND
UNLINKING THE CHAINS THAT NO FURTHER WILL BIND
TOUCHING THE SKY I WILL SMILE AS I FALL
BREATHING IT IN AS I HEAR MY HEARTS CALL
 
STANDING ON MOUNTAINS HEARING THEM BREATHE
TAKING THE STEPS, FEELING THEM SEETHE
TRACING MY NAME IN THE SHADES OF THE SKY
WATCHING THE AS IT FINALLY DIES
 

Taken

WHISPERED STEPS ON THE PAVEMENT
BROKEN SOULS IN THE HALLWAY
TAPERED LIGHT TO THE CORNERS
ARE HOME AMONGST THE TAKEN

FOREVER REACHING OUTWARD
IN AMONGST THE DARKNESS
THE FRAILTY OF ILLUSION
HIDDEN IN THE CRACKING WALLS

TIME WILL CRAWL FOREVER
A MOMENT OF BLINDING
WARMTH WILL REACH THE EMPTY
HOME AMONGST THE TAKEN

 

Light on Black

THE DARKNESS ENGULFS THE WORLD
THE TEARS OF A LONELY CRY
THE FEAR OF THE ENDLESS NIGHT
AND THEN THE LIGHT ON BLACK

REACHING FOR THE BROKEN SOULS
THE WARMTH OF A FORGIVING HAND
THE COMFORT OF THE MORNING SUN
AND THEN THE LIGHT ON BLACK
