Background NoiseTick tock, tick tock
The background noise never stops.
Irritating, retched lies,
I know your secret, the walls have eyes.
Three in the morning and I can't sleep,
Fingers crawl across my flesh, and dig deep
I see a figure across the room,
I listen to his threats, forever they loom.
If I was mad and in a cell, would you find me?
If I drank this poison, would you cure me?
If I wanted this knife, would you take it away from me?
If I was lost, would you come and rescue me?
I want to know he doesn't exist,
It's but another shadow in the mist.
There's another dead body on his cart;
All my pain is his art.
The thunder churns inside of me,
I am a danger, why can't you see?
Please, just hide,
I can't afford to gamble his lies...
Undead SweetnessHer sorrow guides me as I wait;
Her sweetness hurts me,
And I see her heart beat fluctuate.
I wish t'were my demise and not hers.
Our love; forgotten when her death occurs,
Just with one swift shot,
A blow to her head,
I think of our baby, asleep in the cot.
Will he, too, suffer the curse,
If I were to let my love go
In that kind of death that need no hearse;
We, an undead family, how queer!
I see the wonder of it now,
But oh my baby, how could I, oh dear!
I lay her head down and cry.
If I take this bullet to her head;
If only she could say for herself, goodbye,
"I love you", I tell her this,
And watch my love die.
The gun still shakes in my hand.
I notice something across the room,
My heart throbs and I stand,
Slowly, watching the scene ahead of me;
A man is holding a delicate vial.
Shit. Now I see.
My love died in vain.
A cure was available.
Oh bastard! Oh pain!
Tonight I murdered my one true love.
And it's your fault,
You under use of deaths black glove.
To play with fireOne should always take care when playing with fire;
For if one may slip, the burn may be dire,
And if one does not treat said burn, a problem may begin -
Thy pains with thy woes all shall become akin!
The mouse said to me, as he was carving himself one morn,
'Twere my habits that were quite the scorn;
While playing with fire, and watching the flames,
As they withered and wrapped around my dames,
And so the cat, as he came through the door said to me -
And oh dear, all the while eyeing up poor mousey;
That all the fairies wanted to see my wonderful fire display!
I smiled as he coughed and spluttered, and I felt rather gay!
And so when the fairies they came, said and smiled, "How queer!"
For mouse was missing, cat was cleaning his paws; the dear,
And we found maggots in my ashes - O, and in my head, too!
And now I sit 'ere, and I can'st do e'en such that a vegetable may do...
Poetry for the DamnedRoses are black,
Rubies are crimson,
My heart is back,
And you are my reason
I would have once said this, yet I know now that it's worthless,
For truly, who would not trade a raven like mine for a dove like hers?
Why is it that love leaves us as such dammed fools,
That we will go to such extremes, leaving us in such a mess,
And turn our hearts into such dark lows,
Our love to dust,
Our hope to oblivion,
And our minds into such hurtful woes,
Full of worthless lies and pain,
You will never see how special you really are,
But when love leaves you like this,
Surely you are the only one to blame,
For how could they break you?
You are strong, and loveless.
You fight, not love.
You could never say I do,
Yet you see that world without love is not a world at all,
Will you ever see that I love thee,
That your poetic sympathy leads me yearning for more,
For eternity I will await your call,
But you shall never take me,
For you shall never seek thy heart,
And as I draw this knife acro
