Biography of Aaron Lynn
My name is Aaron Lynn, I am 18 years old and poetry is my greatest passion. Common themes in my poetry: Emotional distress, horror, social/political criticism. My greatest influences are mainly Poe and Dickinson. They both have a very natural sense of rhythm which I admire. I'm also heavily influenced by Michael Gira for his bizarre and abstract themes. My goal as a poet is to provoke thought and touch hearts.

Aaron Lynn Poems
Addicted To The Search
There you stand again, Your lust for youth outweighs your guilt. You'll stack it up and watch it fall, Then turn away from all you've built.
All I'Ve Done
I stare into the glass, I see no answers there. The frost has settled in Once again...
Candles In The Rain
If either of us truly cared As much as we both claimed,
Dispose Of Your Mind
Please dispose of your mind. Oh, please! Dispose of your mind! Gather it's contents and toss it aside. Don't worry! Dispose of your mind!
Fear Of Death
Perhaps you feel as I do, But empathy clouds no one's fate. It's cold hands will smother us all, Regardless of alliance or faith.
Finally Born Again
In the darkest times, I slumber. I awaken, and I wonder. Why I feel the scalding sun. As it revives the fallen blood.
There is no tyrant quite like feeling. A bondage that cannot be released.
Dragged beneath the earth, Looking coldly at the sky. The brainless ones alter their limbs While feasting on their minds.
Grains Of Solace
If only my shyness was broken, And sent with a wrath to its grave. If only the words that I've spoken Were welcomed with more than false praise.
I Feel A Power
I've seen the sun rise. I've witnessed it's fall. From the frigid to the scalding. I can't pinpoint whats beyond.
The Blood On Satan's Sword
They gather in congregation. Their prophet wired into their core. To avoid, and yet, to conquer. The blood on Satan's sword.
Not A Friend, Not An Enemy
Through the life that I have crafted, Through the seeds I've left unsown. Through the swiftest of betrayals, Reaping all I've ever known.
Coils Of Secrecy
Take me back to where I was, I'm far from ready for the world. Lead me back into my shell Where I will lay, forever curled.
From Nadir To Zenith
At the zenith of my being, I can see a light ahead. Illumination slowly rises From underworlds of pain and dread.
There is no tyrant quite like feeling.
A bondage that cannot be released.
All we do will forever succumb to it.
Your suffering means that you're human.
Your mind is a warfield.
And your heart is the opposition.
No solution can truly be found.
Forever at war with yourself.
