Forgiveness takes twoThe words are strugglingForgiveness takes two by Tangled-Tales
to tumble off my tongue,
and despite having
a fleshy cushion
to rest on,
they stain my teeth
and sting like acid
"I'm sorry," I stutter,
but the bitter taste
doesn't leave my tongue-
not because the words weren't true,
but because I know
I won't hear,
Tender TortureWhy do you torment me, fairest one?Tender Torture by dai-vee
Are you doing it just for fun?
Why must you taunt me with your presence
Being near me and acting in ignorance?
So thin I suffer from translucence
Made see-through with insignificance
As you pass me by my eyes happen to chance
On yours, as if at a dance
Were you looking at me with your lingering gaze?
Making me think of imaginary days
And wishing for hypothetical years
Holding you close as old age nears
How do other men feel when met by your eyes?
Do their hearts begin to tell lies?
How much hurt do I need to feel
To know your affections aren't real?
I know it's futile, you told me so
With a tender voice a while ago
Now wordlessly you torture my soul
Which wants to think you're my whole
Where Lover's Dream DarklyFor it is not a fable; — that which bleeds..Where Lover's Dream Darkly by ArthurCrow
And her soul may whisper obsidian,
— But I am the sea of Darkness she craves
O’ long I hath bathed in these ravenous winds,
Watching shadows weep across river’s dreary
Upon nightscapes that plunder our souls —
A bouquet of crimson shall enchant thy lips;
Where slowly we fade into requiem
Drink me naked in the abyss of hungry wolves
Among demons and insanity, I thrust and fall
Ravaged, eons of lust spill from mine eyes,
And behold the Forests sing of murder!
In a sombre kiss, we shall undress the skies
Time will yield to the treasures of melancholy
I covet thee, unto this blood-filled Moon
O’ thou art beautiful decay upon my skin,
A ghostly visage dripping wanton & darkly ..
We are Lover’s haunting deaths lullaby;
Assassins brooding in a bewailing fairy-tale
She is mystic poison; & elixir immortale
Seek you me, in the mystique of necromancy
For I am the dream of Serpents fea
Late Night Ramblings- Monster part 1 of 3There is a monster under my bed. I can hear it moving down under there. Waiting. I’ve lost so much sleep lately, just lying there, in the dark, holding my breath. But it knows I’m there, and it knows I am awake. But it cannot come out until I close my eyes. When I close my eyes, when I sleep, it can get me, and drag me down into that darkness. Sometimes, I feel myself drift, and can feel its bony fingers wrap around my ankle.Late Night Ramblings- Monster part 1 of 3 by Rehgai-AP
Those nights I force myself awake, choking down a scream as to not tell anyone. Because the monster is my own, and no one else can see it, nor help with it. For now, I will stay awake and pray it won’t come for me when my guard is down. Even now, I lay here, head phones on, and the scratching noise persists. It doesn’t just want to get me, it wants me to acknowledge it. That will give it more power. But even a glancing thought seems to give it strength. And with it constantly scratching, how can I not think about it.
