Here i stand, a broken man 

nowhere to turn to, not even and empty hand,

no one could ever understand,

how ruthless,cold,or vile I've been,

I've fought my whole life,

I've dealt with the cold edge of a dull bladed knife,

The Window


22 Nov, 2016 09:16 PM
Sometimes I sit and stare out my window,
when life is in despair.
I go to that window when I feel depressed,
but no one is aware.
Everyday, I stare at the trees and the birds and the sky,
to escape from a world of unhappiness.
I press my forehead against the glass and sigh,
"Why does life have to be like this?"
I gaze out the window at the twinkling stars,
all is far away.
I wish I could be up there with them,
but instead, I'm stuck here everyday,
with nothing but my window.

~Darkness Descends~

Jeanie Leyba

Another night closes in
Darkness descends down
Smothering, suffocating,
Drowning me once again

In my deep depths 
Of dark despair
Breaking my spirit
Leaving me shattered

Consumed with pain
I'm completely broken

On a hot,
a woman suddenly
appeared before me,
quite unexpectedly.
She stood in front of me,
right at our Sun's light

I want to scream
I want to cry 
I want to drown in sadness
My painful life of sorrow
Has reach it's limit
I can't take it anymore 
So just kill me
I'm begging you

Wailing Souls

Lasaro J

I want to cry, but am laughing instead
Cause my heart cries, but my face conceals it
I want to wail, but instead I gag in silence
Cause my heart screams, but my gut chokes it 
I hurt deep, but am all smiles
Cause as my heart bleeds, but the mind blots it out
I want to go, but I can’t
My heart won’t let me.

I want to cry and am crying for sure
Cause my heart cries and the tears sting my eyes

If only

Ink, paper, and a pen

17 Aug, 2015 10:49 PM
I always wonder how does it feels to fall in love again
After all the hurts and the pain
Is there still a rainbow after the rain?
Or will i be stuck forever in vain?

Days have gone, but then i met you
I've never expected that you would say you like me too
It just started with a joke "will you text me?"
But theres really something in the way you look at me :)

Can this be love, i dont really know
But the feelings lifts me like beautiful flowers filed in a row

Cheater whom I cannot escape!

Kanashimi Raven

Another cry full of despair 
Another broken promise
Each word I speak, with passion deep, 
means nothing to my stony heart. 
For years have past and my hurt stays. 
I can't forgive you in one day!

” Be gone” I want you out, gone and dead
 And Yet your presence lingers.
 I want you lost, your name forgotten 
Be gone you evil demon!

the comfort of hell


28 Mar, 2013 05:23 PM
The comfort of fallen tears,
Sadness creeps ever near,
Streaking down, completely clear,
Helping you know if your real...

The comfort of a quivering breath,
Helping you hear, nearer death,
Slowly, slowly, here it comes,
The thing is, what is done, is done.

The comfort of a shivering hand,
The last thing to drown in sand,

Heartless Play

Lena d'Arc

We were friends,
we were so close,
we were always together,
I was never alone.

Everyday was fun,
I truly enjoyed being alive,
for everything that I wondered,
you always had an answer...
