Blackened


I see no life, no death
their is no now, no tomorrow
just where we are at the moment
with every step I take
that is my future
this is my living hell
sealed with a devils' kiss
I'm falling off the edge it seems
Blackened by every mistake

And I'm living on a broken heart of dreams
Blackened by the ways you left me used
the bruises clear as evidence
upon my skin
your words still ringing on the phone
wondering if you ever cared at all
was i just a toy that gave you control
either way I'm stuck here
sinking farther down once again
It's my nightmare for a fairytale
that doesn't exist
Blackened year after year

Now I feel not the love
and I feel no hate
days I can feel myself drown
I can't take another breath
trying to escape all of this
is it just a matter of circumstance
Blackened by all that's been done

This world so bent
on your knees' you crawl
as you watch peace fall
in every heart
Blackened by the days to come

These days their is no cure
this is reality
in this troubled land
so full of sorrow
your best friend
now your worse enemy
Blackened by all the pain

No one there to hold your hand
you pray for the promise land above
but do you think you will be ready
to enter the golden gate
when everything is gone
Blackened in the end

I stand here alone
a warrior, not a clone
I show no self cause
this is me, who I am
messed up in the head
I don't think so
I see what you don't see
and be who you can't be
Blackened to the bone

Hell turned upside down
Gods' mercy
here in a world already dead
where goverment politics' has control
they tell you what you want to hear
and still you believe
Blackened by your deepest sin

Like rats in a cage
there is no where to go
while they feast on your soul
ripping and tearing you apart
they watch you bleed
as thousands die
you grieve
Blackened by all you consume

Afraid to make a stand
you hide from your rage
reaching for the sky
as you hunger for freedom
still you don't feed
listening to screwed up laws
telling you what you need
and you follow
with every promise they make
Blackened from within

    Such beautifully true lines, I can not say, but
    Afraid to make a stand
    you hide from your rage
    reaching for the sky
    as you hunger for freedom
    still you don't feed
    You tell it as you see it and such powerful lines. Thanks for inviting me. Angel (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
