Edward Benz, 27 Times

February 12th, 2016by Metalgore

I heard the old man’s voice break, stutter once then stop it. I heard
A sentence started confidently halted by the sudden absence of a word.
Stumbled and he sputtered trying to find it back, something once so simple gone now.
When he finally gave up told me, “Aw, it’s like hell getting old.”

When you came into the store, did you know you’d show me your scars?

I had a heavy heart, he carried a door, it’s shattered pane all wrapped in plastic and he asked if I could fix it, come by a little later help him put it back on hinges. “See, I’m far too old to …

One Last Try Before Time Ends

February 12th, 2016by Zetsumei

If you will, allow me this brief moment to give my earnest.

Time to awaken, princess. The sky is waiting; reincarnation or fallen, those your fates.

O, lost soul wandering purgatory, will you take my hand?

Before the moon wanes upon this moment, I’ll hold you gently if you want me to.

I can hear your heart shivering in the silence

even though I’m just stroking your blushing cheek.

Perhaps this honest appearance scares you

yet you’re wrong to assume I’m an angel.

A vampire to savor your nectar,

an incubus to steal your soul,

a ghost to possess you…

Everything and more to sate your ease

yet the honey in my words and feathers in my …

No Title

February 10th, 2016by Alan Ominous

Some song lyrics I wrote awhile back, without music I guess it’s a poem. Only sharing because I think some of you will enjoy it.

Part 1:

My shadows gone, today.

My own reflection, just looks away.

I’ve lost something, somewhere,

Down the road.

But it’s hard to remember,

what you didn’t know. . .

Part 2:

Sitting beside myself,

We didn’t recognize us.

So we parted ways,

Left myself in the dust.

Searching for answers,

No questions at hand.

Been looking so long ,

Forgot where I am

Part 3:

So I pour out a shot,

But I drink from the bottle.

And I figured it out ,

Somewhere near the bottom.

But when I woke up,

I’d forgot it all again…

explode

February 10th, 2016by abster

 

I feel like being in a prison, not alowed to be myself.

Forced to wear a orange suit.

Forced to look the same.

I am smiling, laughing, acting like nothing is wrong.

In the mean time, I just want to explode.

What You Told Me

“Why did you try to kill yourself?”

 

 

“You told me to be happy..”

you asked, what is the scariest part?

February 9th, 2016by Metalgore

I answered;

the scariest part

is not the feeling of loneliness

o the darkness that fills you

despite the looming pain of emptiness

 

the scariest part

is the realization

that you have lost yourself

completely

sinking as you lay awake at 2am

because you lost the ability to sleep

and you can’t even cry

because you don’t even care

Life Sucks Forever

February 8th, 2016by rocketeer0996

Losing touch of reality is now my doom

I cannot see anything, not even the moon

For no one can feel the pain I now consume

Everything that I am will all be gone soon.

Sometimes I wonder if I should just pull the trigger

Understand me when I say that I can no longer linger

Counting endless sleep until I fall into slumber

Kiss me softly before I have my last supper

Soon enough no one will even bother.

From this moment on I am now a goner

Despite all of my moping, I did manage to get something done today.

February 3rd, 2016by whiskered-fish

wuvs25

Nothing big. But I thought it was kind of nice and serene, and wanted to share it. Maybe somebody will get something positive out of it.

 

Edit: Realized that is was very small. So here it is zoomed it, if that helps.

So Boaring

Here you go, Hazy.

The one that stalks around in the upstairs hallway doesn’t really look like this, but I think it bears a close enough resemblance.

[possible ending] better_off_alone_Mkna_thme (day three)

January 29th, 2016by youwillneverknowme

before you read:
this is based off of my life and i feel sick about it. our friendship is dying anyways, so i don’t know if i’ll continue. read the other “Mkna_thme” stories if you want more.

expecting this to be just another day, i woke up fine.
i finished a piano piece i wrote for her, i titled it “alone with you”. the whole writing process took me around three weeks. just last night is when i decided to scrap the countless hours of work, and just turn the piano outro into the full song. i admit, it was a pretty bad melody, but the …

When Another Person’s Words Describe Your Emotional Predicament:

January 28th, 2016by Counting The Days Until I'm gone

How great my griefs, my joys how few,

Since first it was my faith to know thee

have the slow years not brought to view

How great my griefs, my joys how few,

Nor memory shaped old times anew,

Nor loving kindness help to show thee

How great my griefs, my joys how few,

Since first it was my fate to know thee?

A Social Anxiety day

January 27th, 2016by Slipknot83

I notice I start to get angry toughs whenever I have to go out, maybe it’s a reaction to prepare me to defend myself. Many times I give up leaving home, because I can’t handle people staring at me uncontrolably mad.

I tried to go anyway, everything happened as expected, couldn’t lift up my face to look at people. My eyes stuck the ground, I start sweating, and my face muscles become stiff, and i think, this never changes. Psychologists say you should keep insisting going out and facing your fears. But it never changes to me, it’s like the Murphy law “If something can go wrong …

your_eyes_Mkna_thme (day two)

January 26th, 2016by youwillneverknowme

unabridged

the morning starts off good, and will probably continue to be good as nothing has obstructed us recently. she looks beautiful today (by beautiful i mean she looks the same as every other day), somewhere in the back of my head a phrase pops up but i can’t place out where: “we buy balloons, we let them go”. where could this have possibly come from? i feel like this phrase is a piece of art that has been left dormant.

“hello, i’m wearing something new, bruh” i awkwardly quavered. this ruins my confidence and i want to go into a shell.
“hi,” she smiles, making me happy …

damaged

January 26th, 2016by potential2

Where is the sunshine?
The end of the pain?
Because I am damaged,
I can’t stand in the rain.

The skies have been dark.
The wind is still whipping.
How am I standing?
What keeps me from tipping?

Because i am damaged,
My limbs tatered and broken,
The life that lived in me
Is now slowly chokin (g).

The storm pushes on with violence and fury.
My leaves are all falling,
Like the snow in a flurry.

No where to turn,
No where to go.
Im beat up, run down, and standing alone.
Even in this forrest that i call my home.

Ive always been told “You’re full of potential”.
But i was planted carelessly
Nothing to support growth.
Nothing sequential.

Where can i go?
Where can …

“For I am Death” : Literary Exercise

January 24th, 2016by Counting The Days Until I'm gone

I AM DEATH! Make way one and all

Give me way, for here’s my queue

I am the cliff from which you will fall

From the tears of the beloved, I’ll make myself a devil’s brew.

 

I’m here, there, I’m everywhere;

Don’t try escaping, for your destiny is locked and I have the key

A baby, a mother, a wee puppy, your lover?

This is the face I use to show I care

Fight me not, just let it be.

 

I make big men cry,

I make demons laugh

I’ll take your loved ones, don’t ask me why

For like a carpenter does with wood, from you I’ll make a craft.

 

Come to me, for I have the …

innocence_Mkna_thme

January 23rd, 2016by youwillneverknowme

under the stars, alone with you,
until now, i didn’t actually know you.
you provide something new,
you set aside something distant.

you know you’re detached,
i know you would relocate, and that’s okay.
it’s either your hopes or my dreams,
let’s not worry about it.

together we saw a shooting star,
it didn’t go far.
it suddenly stopped,
hours have passed within seconds.

your pupils are tiny,
and your eyes are so shiny.
i smiled when i looked into your eyes,
as you stated that you wished we could fly.

now here we are,
somewhere up here.
flying and soaring,
it’s not getting boring.

we’re like two shooting stars,
and when you leave, everything stops.
hours pass within seconds,
until i see you again.
