Little Toy Doll
Anon C Nov 2019
An ugly little toy doll
Sits in the corner watching, waiting
for you to come play
Brush her hair, clean her pain

She's waiting for you to come and play
Show her the monsters deep inside her soul
And tell her they'll consume her whole
If she doesn't come and play
Come and play

A pretty little toy doll
Sits in the sun smiling with a song
waiting for you to come say
I'll never paint your smile black

She's waiting for you to come and play
Show her the monsters deep inside her soul
Tell her they'll consume her whole
She's afraid to die slow
Come and play

An ugly little toy doll
sits in the corner watching, waiting
For you to come play
Rip out her hair, tell her she is your pain
Come and play
As it is sung. I ******* hate myself.

Masquerade
Anon C Nov 2019
Trapped inside my mind, I’ve been a prisoner all this time
Our faces are made of glass and none of the reflections are mine
And we’re still living our lives as I watch the echoes of our dreams
Shatter against the mountains of our will
Nothing is ever as it seems
We all hide from our dreams

What am I
Try as I might
I cannot find where they left the light

Faces painted black and white but all the colors bleed
We’re having a masquerade won’t you come and see
All the pretty masks they hide what we can’t understand
They hide the monsters inside from all we have planned
We are never as we seem
We will always hide from our dreams

What am I
Try as I might
I cannot find where they left the light
I will paint my face black and white
As I watch the colors bleed into me
As it is sung

You didn’t burn the bridge but you shut down all the roads
And I can’t pay the toll, it’s starting to get cold
I’m in way over my head here and the wheel keeps spinning my dear, the heat is growing stronger, can I hold on any longer
The days keep coming, the nights are long, gas and fire alone are safe yet I await the flames

Watching and waiting, there’s so much more than meets the eye
But no one is talking and no one wants to say why
We take our deepest cut and rip it open time after time

We’ve taken every path, been down every road
Somewhere along the way we lost our souls
You’re in way over your head here and the wheel keeps spinning my dear, the heat is growing stronger, can we hold on any longer
The days crawl by our tears, and the nights bring fear, gas and fire alone are safe yet we await the flames

Watching and waiting, there’s so much more than meets the eye
But no one is talking and no one wants to say why
We take our deepest cut and rip it open time after time
Curse the devil or praise your Gods, in our hearts we vilify all that makes us feel alive
Our downfall, blame the star and the skies
Take a match, toss it in the gas as we watch our world burn
This can be about destroying others, destroying yourself or destroying the world. Pick your poison and apply.

Stuck in Time
Anon C Aug 2018
Stuck in time I remember your eyes are like glass in a barrel
I realize now time seems fast but it's been a while
I avoid the question while you avoid the answer
It pains me deep down to see we're going nowhere

I keep on tryin' while my heart is lyin'
I want to run to you but I think now that I'm lost
It's simpler to hide away and let you forget me
I can't turn away I'm stuck here without me, without you

I wanna see you, then I don't I'm stuck in the fear of it all
You're a mystery through the haze when I reach you then I will fall
Afraid to come near you, then you can hurt me
Afraid you will see me and then I will burn you

I keep on tryin' while my heart is lyin'
I want to run to you but I think now that I'm lost
It's simpler to hide away and let you forget me
I can't turn away I'm stuck here without me, without you

I'll keep on tryin', while my head is lyin'
Perhaps I'll run to you when I find my way out of the fog
I don't wanna hide, I'll never forget
That I turned away and I'm stuck here without you, without me

No More Dreams
Anon C Jan 2018
I had a dream last night
you were lying next to me
the look on your face was so serene
as if the world weren't crashing down on us

and my world is falling apart
every time I open my eyes
I see the truth behind these lies
no more dreams
you're forever asleep

Like any dream I had to wake
all the colors start to fade away
I can no longer see your face
The nightmares come and bring decay

and my world is falling apart
every time I open my eyes
I see the truth behind these lies
no more dreams
you're forever asleep

my dreams are made of deceit
they tell me you're here with me
but when I open my eyes
you're not dreaming anymore
you're not laughing anymore
you're forever asleep

Run, Hide, Fight
Anon C Nov 2017
He walks with certainty
Knows exactly where he needs to be
His sharp eyes are lined down his sights
And he’s coming for you, he’s coming for you and you can’t fight
He’s known by countless names
Some lost, some found throughout the ages
He hides in the dark to take you while you sleep
And he’s coming for me, he’s coming for me and I can’t fight
We like to call him evil
We love to call him pain
But he’s after all of us just the same
And he’s coming for you, he’s coming for me and we can’t fight, we can’t hide, we can’t run
A ghost in shadows, he finds us every day
Creeps up and takes our breath away
Some leave a whisper in the wind
Others succumb to a miserable end
But he’s coming for us, he’s coming for us and we can’t fight
We like to call him evil
We love to call him pain
But he’s after all of us just the same
And he’s coming for you, he’s coming for me and we can’t fight, we can’t hide, we can’t run
He’s coming for you, he’s coming for me, he’s coming for us, we can’t fight, we can’t hide, we can’t run

Shipwrecked
Anon C Oct 2017
Grief is a leaky pipe
One drip at a time
Eroding the surface my tears fall upon
Revealing the broken bones of my soul
Washed blood white
Tick, tock, drip, drop
The pipe bursts
Washing the salt from my eyes
Into the sea

Thief
Anon C Jul 2017
Like a thief in the night, caught by surprise, you captivated me with your eyes and stole my breath away with your smile
Weaving your way into my dreams,
spinning my mind around and casting my heart to the stars
A radiant soul emanating a myriad of hues,
I could not resist even were I to choose
Speechless, simple words cannot express the passions I wish to confess Which leave me disoriented, my head floating in the clouds, unable to come down

Unbreakable
Anon C Jul 2017
Close enough to see, yet too far to reach
Like a reflection in still waters, serene
As I touch my fingertips to the surface, the ripples carry your face to the other side of the ocean
Delivering it to a place far across torrential seas and violent skies
Though these waters seem to be the embodiment of an unbreakable barrier
I feel comfort knowing you're there, existing in a place I can not yet see
I would willfully tread this treacherous expanse to feel your smile, to look once into your eyes
Before the tide carries away me into the sky

Never Felt
Anon C Jul 2017
Though I've never held your hand, I miss feeling your fingers entwined in mine
I have never felt your embrace yet I miss the warmth of your heart against mine
I have yet to hear your laugh yet I miss its music in my ears
I've never had the chance bury my face into your neck but I miss the way you smell
I wish to run my hands through your hair because I miss how it feels coupled with the softness of your cheek when I hold your face in my hands
Though I have never been able to glimpse your eyes I miss the warmth emanating from your soul
I miss your voice, which echoes in my mind day by day
And I miss your smile as it lights up the night sky
I miss you though I've never seen you

Where Are We
Anon C Jun 2017
My first impression was dazzled
you left me standing there baffled
I never thought this could go wrong
oh how I was wrong
you drug me down in your darkness
oh how my soul felt like glass
shattering against the sky
I never felt so high
I never felt so low
I'm a foolish fool you see
you fooled you and you fooled me
such a twisted smile on a lying face
these things cannot be erased
amidst all this confusion
this was all an illusion
If I pick you up then I will fall
and then where will we be
where will we be
where will we be
where are we
I've never felt so low

Cold
Anon C May 2017
This is the time of day when I need you the most
But you’re never you’ve vanished like a ghost
And I can feel the distance grow
As your eyes become more cold
You won’t say it out loud
I know you want me to let go
I should tell you dear I don’t know how to stop loving you
You won’t listen though you just tell me to make do
And I can feel the distance grow
As your eyes become more cold
You won’t say it out loud
I know you want me to let go
I wait to see your face, I wish to hear your voice
But you have walked away and left me with no choice
And I felt the distance grow
Your eyes they were so cold
You wouldn’t say it out loud
But you made me let go

It's Okay to Cry
Anon C May 2017
I saw a girl sitting by a grave
There were tears running down her face
This kind of thing, you see it every day
Laughing masks smiling through the pain
I met a boy who said he killed his dreams
Told me life is never what it seems
He missed a girl who left this world too soon
She took her life under the light of the moon
All these people seem alone
Empty hearts that have no home
One day, the child in you will die
And you will know it’s ok to cry
A little girl asked me what is pain
Give it time, you will see one day
She took my hand and looked me in the eyes
You’ll be alright, my dad said it’s ok to cry
All these people seem alone
Empty hearts that have no home
One day, the child in you will die
And you will know it’s ok to cry
We’re all the girl sitting by the grave
At some point, we all have lost our way
Don’t be the boy who killed his dreams away
Try not to remember yesterday
Put on your mask and smile through the pain
And know tomorrow brings another day
Not everyone we see is alone
Some hearts, they do have a home
Some people’s inner child never died
And they’ll tell you it’s ok to cry

I only wanted to love you
I just wanted to hold you
Watch your face as your smile reached your eyes
Etch the image in my mind before it dies
-----
I just wanted to teach you
Reach my hand out and touch your heart
Your eyes had so much to tell me
Like the fact that you and I will never be
-----
You never wanted to love me
You never wanted to hold me
As the tears ran down my face
You turned and walked away
You’d rather be any other place
----
Maybe one day you will change your mind
And I will be waiting stuck in time
I still only want to love you
I still only wish to hold you
You’re the only one I’ll ever see
You’re the only one for me

Half a World Away
Anon C May 2017
You’re half a world away
And I miss you every day
And I’ve never seen your face
But I love you anyway

If I could look into your eyes
I would never say goodbye
Take my hand and you’ll see
How wonderful we’ll be
I know it’s rather strange
But I’d never want to change
Just know, I’d never let you go

My heart is torn asunder
I lie awake and wonder
If I could show you how I feel
See if this is real
If I could look into your eyes
I would never say goodbye
Take my hand and you’ll see
How wonderful we’ll be
I know it’s rather strange
But I’d never want to change
Just know, I’d never let you go

I’d never let you go
I love you anyway

Hoodoo Doll
Anon C May 2017
I ripped my love for you from my heart
With a hoodoo doll
I couldn’t take no more of this
Waiting for a fall
And so I let you go
And so I bid you farewell

You see I can’t trust you
Cause I can’t trust me
Not to fall in love with you
Completely
And so I cut you out of my heart
And set you to the side to view from afar

Now you’re safe and sound inside my guitar
So I can hear your love echo through the stars
And now I will be free
Now your love doesn’t live in me

I ripped my love for you from my heart
With a hoodoo doll
I couldn’t take no more of this
Waiting for a fall

Run Away
Anon C Oct 2016
Pop your pills and run away
Hide your face inside your shame
Drink your whiskey all **** day
Anything to hide the pain

It doesn’t matter what it costs
Count your sins and cut your loss
You never saw another way
Another day, you’ll never change

You watched the sun fall to the west
Your empty tears held no regrets
Eyes alight you took your final breath
The sun has set and now you’re gone

You popped your pills and ran away
Hid your face within your shame
Drinking whiskey all **** day
Anything to hide the pain
Anything to run away

I can't deal with it
I've fallen from the abyss
I will wait for you
to watch me drown again

I am fading and I cannot scream
Push me down, make me your slave
I am dying inside my own dreams
Give me a shovel to dig my own grave

I can't deal with it
You pushed me too far down
I won't wait for you
To bury me in the ground

I'm a silhouette, a forgotten face
Let me go into the night
What will it take to keep me alive
I'm beneath you and I cannot fight

That's what you've always told me
I can't deal with it, watch me fade away
Push me down, make me your slave
Give me a shovel, I'll dig my own grave

While you watch

While you watch
Me fade

Amnesia (Please Smile)

Distracted by every syallable that was exhaled
unable to recall

leaving me with amnesia

electrifying finger tips
of a ghost running down a shattered spine

scream for your sunlight
which stuns lightning bolts
and silences thunder claps

Just One Day
Anon C Jan 2016
If I could go just one day without missing you I'd forget the pain
If I could go one moment not loving you then I might be free
If only I'd stop this dreaming I could break away from these chains
If I had a ******* bit of sense I would turn my back and flee

your soul is the thunder that lightning never heard
I know my behavior may seem somewhat absurd
but your eyes wont let me go no you wont let me go
I am tethered to this purgatory I cannot tell you no

If you would spend just one day trusting me we might not be afraid
Just take one moment to face me we might not be mislead
I want to walk into the light before I fade
I'm stuck inside some sick nightmare playing in my head

your soul is the thunder that lightning never heard
I know my behavior may seem somewhat absurd
but your eyes wont let me go no you wont let me go
I am tethered to this purgatory I cannot tell you no

I do I don't want to miss you...I cannot forget
I only wanted to love you..break these chains from me

Break
Anon C Jan 2016
I looked into your cold, cruel eyes
as you laughed in the certainty of my demise
you said that you're a broken man but you wanted to break me
as you walked away and left me with your misery

you built me up to knock me down
leaving nothing but a single memory
of your lips as you spoke
I cannot wait to watch you drown

taking pleasure in the carnage of the weak
the only love you've ever felt is for the havoc you wreak
you claim that love has ravaged your sun
you forgot the one who loved you is on the run

you built me up to knock me down
leaving nothing but a single memory
of your lips as you spoke
I cannot wait to watch you drown

I gave you my heart
it wasn't enough
I gave you my soul
you ripped it apart
you cry cause you're alone
you cry when you're alone
you reap what you will sow
you've reaped what you have sown

you built me up to knock me down
leaving nothing but a single memory
of your lips as you spoke
I cannot wait to watch you drown

all you wanted was to break me

My smile is the biggest lie i'll ever tell
I took the hint, I disappeared
if you'd believe in me I could leave this Hell
but it's much too hard to hold a corpse

my smile is my biggest lie of them all
here where dreams go to die
here where the devil won't let you cry
believe in me, let me leave this Hell

my smile is the biggest lie I've ever told
I try to breathe but the flames overcome me
they say Hell is hot but here it's been so cold
time has no meaning where dreams go to die

my smile is my biggest lie of them all

Lost in Time
Anon C Jan 2016
Pining for wintry eyes
Formed a habit to be despised
Like the ghost of a cigarette
In an ex smokers hand

Fumbling for icy fingertips
Afraid, blind in the dark
Like a small child
Plunged into a nightmare

Searching for scorching lips
Like a gas soaked kerosene rope
Ready to be set aflame
Burning away into ashes then nothingness

Hidden are the sun and moon
Like an old memory lost in the woodwork
Looking young, feeling aged
Collapsing in the Sahara desert
These thoughts plague a mind
When one is lost in time

Something you cannot yet trust
Let me crawl underneath your skin
Resurface all your scars
Begin to mend what you would call your flaws

If I could tell you what I wanted to say
But I am much too afraid
Unsure if you'd throw me to the wind and tell me don't come back again
If I could tell you what I wanted to say

Covered in your wounds I cry deep inside
You're too beautiful to hide behind your lies
You light up the room but cannot recall
That you have a heart behind all your walls

If I could tell you what I wanted to say
But I am much too afraid
Unsure if you'd throw me to the wind and tell me don't come back again
If I could tell you what I wanted to say

If I could tell you what I wanted to say
No matter how much you hate yourself and me
If I could tell you what I wanted to say

But I never will no
I never will no
And I never do no
No I never will no

If I could tell you what I wanted to say
But I am much too afraid
Unsure if you'd throw me to the wind and tell me don't come back again

Watch Me Die
Anon C Dec 2015
In all the years gone by
Nothing ever seemed so clear
When no one saw me cry
Letting go of all my fear

Blinded by my own tears
I didn't see the headlights
Thinking to myself how peaceful it was
To watch me die

Don't throw my body in the ground
I'd rather have a look around
Toss my ashes to the wind
And let me fly free again

Don't look for me when I'm gone
Ill be singing a new song
One you've never heard before
Listen for my voice on the shore

Search for the light
Long after I am out of sight
Don't focus on your sorrows
Think of how I smiled before tomorrow

Blinded by my own tears
I didn't see the headlights
Thinking to myself how peaceful it was
To watch me die

Unless you mean it
Don't touch my skin
Unless you mean it
Don't draw me in

Don't reach your hand out

Ignore me as I shout
And watch me drown

Stare as my fire burns
Laughing at the stars
For what my heart yearns
Escapes me from afar

Unless you love me
Don't touch my skin
Unless you mean it
Don't draw me in

Choking on dust
As I breath in the night
Do what you must
Push me in the light

I've felt the darkness
Creeping down my spine
Unable to express
How brightly you shine

But unless you want me
Don't touch my skin
Unless you mean it

Flames to Embers
Anon C Dec 2015
The first time that I saw you
I knew that it would hurt
I wanted you to love me
I knew you'd never give in
I watched and waited for ages
You kept your heart closed and caged

Every time I see your face
I feel the pain
The fire inside my chest
Engulfs me in flames

There's secrets that I've kept
So deep you'd never find me
You're so sure of yourself
I could never keep up
I'm a mess I'm a flame that's turned to dust
The truth is something I could never trust

Every time I see your face
I feel the pain
The fire inside my chest
Engulfs me in flames

I take a sip of my beer
While my dreams fade in liquor
I wanna taste the salt on your skin
Hold you close like my sins
Never will you back down
But I will drink up and drown

Remember all the times I've seen your face
While I embrace this pain
Feed the fire inside my chest
As I'm engulfed by the flames

Graceless
Anon C Nov 2015
You left me all alone
I only wish that I had known
That the last time I saw your face
Was the moment you would fall from grace

Nowhere to turn, to Jesus you cried
Begging God one last time for a guide
Never keeping me inside your mind
I never even got to say goodbye

Always had one last bit of hope
Taken away with a last hit of dope
Never again can you call to God
Nevermore will I hear your voice
A song for my mother.

Lying to Myself
Anon C Nov 2015
The very last time I saw your eyes
You were begging me not to walk away
But I never did listen too well
And I never knew what to say

Wasted breath, forgotten time
I live in the dark I was never a bright light
I never knew how to love
And long ago I lost the will to fight

I lied to myself for so long
I forgot what's right and clung to what was wrong
Now here I am with my own heart
I knew it would end here from the start

I'll never tell you that I love you
It isn't something that I can do
I'll strum you a song in the dark
As I wish I hadn't fallen apart
Work in progress song. I still feel meh about it.

you fooled me with your eyes

The Color Grey
Anon C Jan 2015
I've been reading all your stories
though I notice missing chapters
my name has not since crossed your lips
I have reached out, yet not heard your laughter

it would seem though, that you have laughed
and the missing chapters were the holes that needed filling
who'd have known that disappearing
would be the one thing that never left you with feeling

I watched from the shadows as an artist colored your pages
you changed from black and white to colors I have never met
cause you see, my best friend is this little bird called fate
and as I see me fade to grey, I feel nothing

but I still read your stories
I still think about those missing chapters
I forgot my name, no one's said it in a while
but I still listen for your laughter

in the back of my head
*in the back of my head

"You remind me of veil fire
an echo of love"
her raven hair soaked in his crimson tears
she looks up, emerald eyes shimmering like the fade
"why, why can you not love me as I do you?"

"for I am the boy who never was
I cannot give what I do not understand
don't worry you'll soon forget"
he kisses her once
"forget"
he was gone

she awoke, thinking herself dead
"this cannot be heaven, I taste blood in my mouth"
To explain, he is a spirit, while she is flesh. Based off of a character in Dragon Age.

The sun breaks through to another day for me to see the choices I've made
It's easy to overlook the pain when there's nothing to lose and naught to gain
If my mistakes were rubber bands
I'd tie them all together and throw caution to the wind
But I never learn
No I never learn
I can't deal with the aftermath, I didn't think straight when I chose my path
They say don't dwell on the past my friend, but there's never a start and there's been no end
If my mistakes were rubber bands
I'd tie them all together and throw caution to the wind
But I never learn
No I never learn
I watched my dreams fall away from me, emotions as vague as the sky and sea
The stars break through to another night as I lie in my bed wishing I'd try
If my mistakes were rubber bands
I'd tie them all together and throw caution to the wind
But I never learn
And it never ends
No I never learn
It never ends
I wrote this to standard tuning with he use of Am, G, C , D and F. I am really open to suggestions on wording if it doesn't flow or seems to not make sense. I kept going over and over this and am still unsure how I feel about it.

Lonely Bones
Anon C Sep 2014
Can you hear the clock 'a ticking
won't you come to the meadow soon
lay my dead bones 'a dancing
to stare up at the moon

will you come down to see me
when my bones are in the grave
I ask cause you haven't been here lately
and I'd like to see your face

the flowers 'neath my head have changed to brown
and the nearby trees are quite aged
you never took the time to come around
to bid me farewell at my grave

the clock has long since stopped ticking
and the meadow has faded into ruin
my bones have forever ceased their dancing
eyes darkened by the moon

*please come and see me soon

Lockbox
Anon C May 2014
You said we could do anything
you were right
so why am I doing it alone
Slowly I fall apart
As this fight erodes
my layers of steel, stone and bone

Weathering away grains of time
Slip, slipping across the sky line
Awaiting the day when it's finally safe to say
goodbye

Did you know about my lockbox
Hidden deep within my dark
Kept safe for a rainy day
A hole perpetuated when you left
The time will be right
When nothing more is left to say

Weathering away grains of time
Slip, slipping across the sky line
Awaiting the day when it's finally safe to say
goodbye

You said we could do anything
Then why did I do it alone
When you let me fade into the cold

I did not wish to return to the light
On this last night the time was right
The line went dead
Nothing more was said
Oh lockbox
My only sweet friend
In the end
In the end

Ghost
Anon C Mar 2014
The piece of me that isn't dead cares
that piece is what will always make you aware
as my ghost becomes numb in the shadowy corner chair

in the dark, sweet darkness
you left me there to wane
in the dark, sweet darkness
so darkness I became

I hear a passionate song
but I'm a ghost my passions long been gone
an apparition, I haunted you, you'd had it in for me all along

in the dark, sweet darkness
you left me there to wane
in the dark, sweet darkness
so darkness I became

you can't make amends with a ghost
all I had to offer was all you hated most
if you ever want a tall flask of cold, black coffee I'll be your host

In the dark, sweet darkness
you left me there to wane
in the dark, sweet darkness
so darkness I became

as it swallowed me whole
and lay out my shame

Numb
Anon C Mar 2014
Tear drops on tin foil
pouring down slick silver oil
every surface bleeds, razor blade paper cut
over time the blood turns to rust
the girl who once felt love will be dying all alone
the tears once dried now turned to stone
the sun disappeared, clouds cascade down as the beast devours
cold and empty in the final hour
gouged from soul, heart, then life
now a disease from which to cringe
she became a corpse by example
how to ignore dreams and succumb

Pull Your Halo Down
Anon C Mar 2014
I know you don't wish to come
where the spirits fly and we all let go
I know you don't wish to come
but I will take you there
pull you from your cloud so high
where the wind whispers tragedies
I know you don't wish to come
but not to see is a travesty

won't you please come with me
take my hand
one day you'll see
it was worth it all in the end
when you finally let love descend

It's beautiful here where the sky meets the sea
even blades of grass muster a smile
I know you don't wish to come
but I will take you there
from this view you'll never wish to flee
let me take you down for a while
I know you don't wish to come
but you'll finally see the sun

won't you please come with me
take my hand
one day you'll see
it was worth it all in the end
when you finally let love descend

Dead End
Anon C Mar 2014
A rock in a sandpaper throat
difficult to choke, impossible to swallow
obsession had outlived love
dreams too large for tiny arms
and ashes were left where she treads
tears fill one eye as the other stays dry
love prevailed in cold bloodshed
drifting away another vague memory once so powerful
'twas a dream from which to be awoke
the moon turned red and her twisted silhouette devoured the sky
the ocean transformed to venom as her warm breath met the sea
a fiberglass vial, the poison, the pain, the nothing of a dead ghost
leap off the precipice, one might likely fly given the right mind
only the doubtful would cry
only the uncertain would kneel down in remorse and give in to the unknown
her last heartbeat didn't make a sound
exemplifying her lifeless soul
burying her dead thoughts

Mistress
Anon C Mar 2014
Mistress of the night
sweet smell of darkness
oh how cherished was the scent
never knowing until it was too late

true love's blinded sight
a pain never fading, forever ageless
tattered soul left in fragments
pain that never will abate

oh mistress of the night
*please don't fade into the shadows

Life in Anothers Eyes
Anon C Jan 2014
You painted yourself with every color
I may have loved black and white as much if not more
yet the ink was illegible between the lines

I never knew who resided in the picture
decimation claims the land that would be our future
with lies justified in anothers eyes
Making yourself someone you're not is never good. Never makes you more than what you are. As the grimm brothers so graciously put it, "The sun always brings truth to light."

Fortress
Anon C Jan 2014
lost in the night sky, I dwell within my passionate fortress
where none could intrude nor seek to overthrow
such love for shadows, so sweet, so serene
with no warning, the thought, the face crept in
just one revelation, one face
brings my stronghold to its knees
pillars crash down threatening such peaceful respite
now exposed, a keen eye would see
desire expressed in a metaphor
love never uttered, never to be seen
whilst the rubble is rebuilt from the ruins

*overlooking the night sky in a fortress of solitude

La Douleur Exquise
Anon C Jan 2014
Inherent disregard to my own scars
drain this chalice of my inebriated blood
akin to the taste of cyanide, cascading down your tongue
a sacrilegious demon may not be evil
my church is but of rotting wood and bone
my fragile prayers are not enough to hear
no, not enough to hear such a far away thought
reverberating in my head the battle rages
never ending echo, forever, la douleur exquise
Inspired by la douleur exquise a term that defines one who craves the affection of one who is unattainable. This is how I feel or would feel in said situation. I can't say if it's me. Thanks Lee.

Final Turns
Anon C Aug 2013
Serene erosion how could it be
a natural force turned so violently
awaiting the day that brings all to their knees
will your master then bade you well
awaiting an entity that will never come
merely impending darkness amd that is all and it will ever be
skin as white as my blackened soul
it's a metaphor didn't you know
ink painted from head to toe
I imagine the taste is that of the mountain air kissing ocean waves
I'm in love with a ghost
I found the moon hates the sun
the moon hates the sun, the rabbit is still white and the hatter still mad
the oxygen still tastes of mountain air and ocean waves
I shall just be on my way, good day

Symphony of Insanity
Anon C Aug 2013
My veins are creeping ivy
the feeling slowly enveloped my soul
as I lie under the stars crop circles form in the sky
begging the question yet I cannot yet reach the sun
I shut my eyes, as I drift into the milky way
gravity beckons for my return
yet that I cannot do, forever lost in a lone vacuum
I smile when I feel pain no more
in the absence of nothing, never to return to reality
an excursion to a black hole
it is here in the unknown I find my affinity for love

The Day Death Died
Anon C Jun 2013
A fleeting moment, when it was
Death had passed, a sigh in the wind
no sound was made, no sign given
never again to return
he had been the alcoholic driver
the puff of smoke curling off the end of a cigarette
he once was fear of the unknown
an anxiety attack spurned by a gasp for breath
a voice soft spoken, full of love
fear me no more, for I am you
his last words to me
I lost fear of Death
the day Death died

Deck of Cards
Anon C May 2013
lost in the hue of insanity
will The Joker find his Queen
does The Joker then find his Queen
will he grow wings to fly
or ride the phoenix to the bowels of Hell
well, will The Joker find his Queen
or will she continue chasing dreams
The Queen went down the rabbit hole
and The Joker was left behind
The Queen found loneliness was her love
and The Joker remained the fool
forevermore
forevermore
will The Joker ever find his queen

Creeping Ivy
Anon C May 2013
You poisoned it
my love
a child's twisted black heart
quenched with acidic raindrops
feeding upon a parasitic wasteland
reaching for the one who bleeds like me
unable to hold, I cannot wield it
when the anvil drops
pain and repercussions become absolute
