**** or be killed
Hate or be hated
Love or be alone
Strive to find home.
I stare at world
My eyes bleed with tears
I walk in the streets
My fingers feel fear.
Children of the killers
Offspring of the dirt
Eyes of the blind man
Backs of the hurt.
Fallen angels
Risen demons
Sprung from nothing
Death in millions.
Whirlwind of crimes
Pyramid of fun
The sign of the times
the moon turns crimson.
Bombs ****** families
Nature brings its hand
Storms in the making
The ocean is sand.
Its the stuff of the capsule
Its the thing pouring out
Its the earth in its beauty
Saying time has run out
Atlas 1d
The last time I said, "I love you" I was nine
I was clinging to my cousin who helped keep my head above the waves
As we surfaced me spluttering I glanced up at her in the sunshine
In a blind moment of childlike trust, I caved

That was years ago  
The waves of her mind have long drowned her
I wish I hadn't let her go
My mind is now a constant whir

As I stand past the safety railing on the bridge
I realize she couldn't keep her body afloat
I'm sinking, the water is frigid
As her former demons pull me down; they've sunk my boat
David 1d
I see you crying
because of the dark shadow in me,
but your sorrow is my sorrow
as your happiness is my happiness and
I want to cry too,
I want to cry with you,
trying to comfort you
when it's impossible to
because I am what I am
and I can't change the past,
I can change myself
and I can't do nothing more than staying with you,
hugging you in our tears,
maybe we will cry forever
thinking about how good it would have been
if I really were a better person
as you believed when you chose to stay with me.
I want to watch the sky with you
and give you a star to make you happier,
but I know it's not enough,
I just want to take care of you,
stay in my arms,
I'm always here,
I want to make you feel warm,
singing you a lullaby
because I love you infintely,
there's no love like you,
because your feelings are my feelings,
and your heart is one and dual with mine,
and my biggest dream is to see you fly again one day,
again,
high in the sky,
higher and higher
towards the sun
and there will be
no more tears,
no more shadows,
just the shine in your eyes
to smile again.
I wrote this poem to my ex girlfriend after an argument.
In few words I told her I didn't believe her, but I was angry just because I missed her, always away from me.
Atlas 1d
I am infested
They crawl into my mind when I'm alone
I thought I'd had my demons bested
My mind will continuously drone

Shut up! Shut up! I silently plead
It's three A.M and I cannot sleep
They've already planted their dark seed
I can't let it grow so I cut my skin and weep

They're silent at last
I clean the floor leaving not a trace
I thought my habits were in the past
My mother calls me a nut case

Maybe today I can silence them once and for all
One step forward then I can leave everything behind
This will be my final fall
I'm the exterminator; I had to exterminate my mind
Katy 1d
Some of us have demons we thought we exorcised
The truth is they just went into hiding and became dormant

Well, mine has come back out to play
Wreaking his havoc through my entire body

The nicotine is the safest way I can ward him off
While I try to figure out how to get rid of him completely
Night after night it was easy to see
Sunny days turn to stormy nights with ease
In the shadows of my pupils was the devil inside of me
Long narrow horns and a snake tongue
came through his teeth
The same dreadful thoughts running in circles with speed
The same demons playing freeze tag with 10 teams
My jaw almost broken from endlessly grinding my teeth
Only a couple words come out I can barely speak
This has happened before but I could’ve swore I had you beat
I knew you would come back for me why does it have to be this week
The eruption in my eyes red is all I see
When will I die ? why do bad things always only happen to me ?
Will I live a long life ? why are things never as they seem ?
I swear I loved her but why couldn’t she just love me ?
Why are you in my head but your the only one who understands me ?
My friends just laughed and continued to drink
While he was in my brain pushing me to the brink
Insanity called my name for a while I didn’t want to breathe
He gave me a strength that now can’t recede
Beating times like those my mind now stronger than Hercules
Now all my angels can finally Rest In Peace
In the shadow of the pupil of my eyes he resides and sleeps
Who would’ve known my best friend would become the devil inside of me ..

Fighting demons only to love them in the end.. kinda song like.
Detatchment and wishing illusions
I morph into different people to distance from myself
When I truly return inside the rage is blinding
The loathing is unimaginable
Twisted vines with thorns wrap themselves around my lungs, suffocating me and digging into me ever so deeply
The demons tug at my legs, their strength gradually increasing enough to bring me to the floor
I long to scratch myself up as they wish, as I deserve, until they allow me to jump out of my own skin
I long for my soul to be heard
My true self isn't enough, it's infuriating
They have taught me that time and time again
What a pity it is, you silly little girl
Do you really think this torture will stop
When it's all
You are built for
Amaisha 3d
They say I am ill,
That my future stands, still
Too far out of reach
Yet not close enough to feel

My Future,

It's patience is no virtue
It's silence is no gift,
I will claw my way to find it
just to find it doesn't exist.

They will watch with desperate eyes
praying that through all the
destruction and hatred I pass
I will somehow survive
the disguise of my past

My past,

It's soulless smile rips through my skin
Destroying the layer of heaven I built
Constricting my heart of the love I once felt

They say not to live in the past,
or fret of the future
but to stand in the present

But how can I stand when the past
has shaken the ground I am on,
& the future clouded my blue sky with grey?
I wrote this in a time when I honestly felt like I wasn't going anywhere  and that somehow, no matter how much I tried, my past would always catch up to me. I hope you like it and that some of you can relate.. :))
