Literature
Undead
With so much left unsaid
Here I stand, lost...undead
Your lies were without cost
Without a care for what I lost
Left only with my hate
Blackening my wishful fate
My time is gone, and so are you
If only I knew forever wasn't true
:iconShallow-Abyss:Shallow-Abyss

Literature
Insanity
Overburdened by the past
Memories that wake far too fast
Too easily taken over by hate
Consumed by fear - I cannot awake
Blind me of the world's violence
Let the truth be held in silence
I want to start over new
Insanity, I welcome you
:iconShallow-Abyss:Shallow-Abyss

Literature
Help Me
Help Me Escape
Help Me Get Away
Away from the familiar same
Every day, again and again
Burn My Dread
Watch it die and leave it dead
Nothingness I have become
Too much, It's over, I'm done
Something I must befriend
Failure, over and over, again and again
Help Me Get Away
Help Me Find A Way
Hopeful, before it's too late...

Literature
Velvet Lies
As velvet love pours from my betrayed heart
The lines begin to blur; I fall apart
Every last word reeks of lies
Substance renders apparitional ties
Craving release, self-affliction I endure
Endless pain time cannot cure
I must let go, to get it together
But no matter what, I'm stained forever
:iconShallow-Abyss:Shallow-Abyss
:iconshallow-abyss:Shallow-Abyss 16 31
Literature
Masked
Masked
A laugh here, a laugh there
A masked truth, nothing's there
Surrounded by people
And yet I'm all alone
Around me so many places
But none to call my own
Solace is all that I ask
But that too, an unachievable task
And what can I do, but just give in
I've lost, but somehow I just keep on living

Literature
As I Silently Sit Here
As I silently sit here
I wonder when's the next time I'm going to see her
Reflecting on the experiences of the past
Hoping this pain will not last
Monstrosities plague my mind
I doubt her again, another time
But when we talk, it all goes away
A temporary sedative for all that hate
I want her again, I'm no longer afraid
No matter how long, I will always wait
And for her, I sit here silently
Wondering when she'll find me

Literature
Your Beautiful Smile
Your smile lights up my very soul
And ignites what has gone out far too long ago
Your eyes blaze with the sun
Your beauty is unique, unlike anyone
You're too cute to just look at
For full effect, stare and never look back
Time is precious, when it's spent with you
You give me something to cherish and look forward to
Perhaps you already knew
But I really like you
So smile for me, you know it's true

Literature
Fear
Within this place, as you lie awake
You begin to realize your mistake
Darkness surrounds you, you are not alone
Everything you thought is now unknown
Your fears come to life, denying you sleep
Sanity becomes almost too hard to keep
But you hold on, it subsides
You're just happy you're alive
Another night, another day
Hope for tomorrow it will go away

Literature
My Infection
My Infection
The pain inside me is like an infection
Killing me with cancerous intentions
Numbing feelings that pass
Burning through a heart I once had
'Til there's nothing left inside
My body's to run cold, deprived
And now I'm lost, dead
Listening to the voices inside my head
More Poems: Nothing Left
:iconShallow-Abyss:Shallow-Abyss
:iconshallow-abyss:Shallow-Abyss 1 0
Literature
Nothing Left
Nothing Left
With my heart given no reason to function
My body is but a shell left with nothing
And my mind's slowly going insane
Can't focus on anything but the pain
As tears fall from my eyes
A little more I die
Gaps form in my life
All I knew wasn't right
Realizing the truths and lies
To Myself
And to all I had confide
More Poems: In Pieces
:iconShallow-Abyss:Shallow-Abyss
:iconshallow-abyss:Shallow-Abyss 1 2
Literature
In Pieces
In Pieces
I sit here bleeding inside
Cut clean and thrown aside
I want to tear my heart out
Empty of what I couldn't live without
Afflicting pain consumes me
No feelings left within me
Sleepless, waiting for an end
Time goes, again and again
I hear voices from behind
Laughing as I wait, confined
Then I'm thrown into the abyss
But too soon I reminisce
My torment will continue
But my time is up
Relieved of all I had once loved

Literature
Lies
The thought of you rushing passed,
I'd much rather swallow shattered glass.
The memories in my head like scar,
Stuck in your prison of icy bars.
The things you tell me all sound true,
But when push comes to shove, you wont follow through.
You broke through my walls and let your darkness shine,
And now I'm broken, stuck, entwined.
All of my hope is now shattered,
I guess to you my feelings never mattered.
All because I thought your words the truth,
And I convinced myself to love you too.

Literature
First Moment
The first moment we locked eyes
I was hypnotized
I wanted to hold on and never let go
I'll love you with all my heart and soul
But only if you knew
The way I feel about you
I can't hide it anymore
Cause you are the one my heart beats for
So I'll share my feelings with you
And how much it brings to me
When I see a smile upon your face
You make my heart race
A different beat a different pace
And I get butterflies inside
From the first moment we locked eyes
:iconAwake-In-A-Dream:Awake-In-A-Dream
:iconawake-in-a-dream:Awake-In-A-Dream 5 2
Literature
Numb
Numb was an interesting place
Out of the race
Watching things with bored intent
Not caring about any event
Seeing things through cold dead eyes
Not falling down, but failing to rise
Explaining myself to my reflection
But missing nuance and inflection
Logical to a very fault
Everything else seemed to halt
Emotion led to weakness and disdain
Nothing there to really gain
Yet insight was granted still
And I regained my strength of will
:iconFerelwing:Ferelwing
:iconferelwing:Ferelwing 68 18
Literature
Gone
Sinking, sunk
Into the darkness of the pillow
Of emotions comforting nothing to the touch
Every nerve prick hurts to much
Its falling, the sky, upon a down cast head
The rain cloud travel over a bed
cold and uninviting, with a soulless girl
Spirits crushed beneath the waste that's hurled
Spiraling, the kind that makes the eyes dilate
Smiling, the kind that's fueled by hate
Do you like it? The feeling it makes you feel?
Its horrible, isn't it? Lips taste like steel
Sinking, sunk, that ship has sailed
To that pillow she's nailed
Weepy eyes under that cloud
Thunder hurts, the heart is loud
Wanting and ripping the body in two
She's bleeding now…is it because of you?

Hey I'm trying to start writing again. I recently came back here and started reminiscing on my old works and found myself wishing I could do it all again. My excuse has been the schoolwork I've had, which has been rather daunting, but I've still had time for other things so I'll make time for this. I have completely abandoned my group, of which I have to thank :iconpheonixcrucifix: for accepting deviants artworks for a rather extended amount of time. Thank you ^^. I'm going to start by fixing up some of my more rough and incomplete works and then see what new material I can come up with after that. It won't be the same as my older material.

Well anyways I doubt anyone actually reads these things but I had to get it out anyways. If you are reading, thank you for your time and have a nice day. ^^ Also what are your goals for the new year?
  • Listening to: Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
  • Reading: The Greatest Show On Earth - Richard Dawkins
