The deadliest poison does not kill
nor be injected.
This poison grows inside,
throughout the day
and throughout the night.
It can affect your dreams,
your goals,
your aspirations.
Sometimes the pain goes away,
and other times it is at its strongest.
You can catch it from a glance
or simply by talking.

This poison eats at me,
and sometimes I wish I would die
the pain becomes so severe
I cannot help but cry.
The cause aludes me
when I try to submit
I scream in agony
my skin on fire.

This poison brings people together,
and pushs them apart.
This poison is love,
existing only in your heart.



My first attempt after a year, so it's a little rough.

Good job ;)

I'd rather die another day
I'd rather sing another song
I'd rather waste the day away
being with you for so long.

I'd rather run a thousand miles,
I'd rather swim a thousand leagues,
I'd rather cause all of your smiles
than be the cause for you to leave.

I'd rather take you home with me,
then see you have to go.
But when I go to close my eyes,
baby I'll always know.

You are the warmth in my blood
You are coursing though my veins.
You are the waves of the flood,
as they take all of my pains.

You're everywhere I go,
You're everything I see.
Then your smile starts to glow,
when you're here with me.

I'd rather die another day,
I'd rather sing another song.
I'd rather waste the day away,
being with you for so long.


This is somewhat of a song as well as a poem. Well, originally, it was a song with some strums from my acoustic, but I think it goes well into a poem too. C&C always welcome.

I'm done

To hide behind lies,
is to cower before the truth.
To believe those words,
I resist, I resist.

I'm done trying
I'm done with this act.
You're not worth the risk
I'm content, I'm content.

So much for believing
every lie you spoke
so much for wisdom
I regret, I regret.

To impress you,
I had to destroy myself
I was lost
No more, no more.

To throw away love,
is to throw away friendship
a pointless endeavor
You're a fool, You're a fool.

You don't deserve love,
you don't deserve friendship.
You don't deserve
to live, to live.

The world will exist
with you,
or without you
No matter what.

This mask is gone,
the man is revealed
do you realize?
I'm Done, I'm Done.

Untitled

Can we just cut,
and dissipate,
to learn to love,
and not to hate?

Ignore the past,
It's already over,
like finding and losing,
a four-leaf clover.

Today can be tomorrow,
tomorrow can be today
Emptied mind of sorrow,
hating in every way

Daggers in the moonlight,
Daggers in the rain,
Everything is all right,
just empty out the pain,

slide the knife
across your skin,
release the blood
the pain sets in.

Forget the misery,
forget the pain
you were the sunshine,
I was the rain

I hate to love you
you love to hate me
are there really that many?
Fish, within the sea?

Let's go running,
And never stop.
Spinning endlessly,
Living like a top.

Falling and Falling,
Looking for a hold.
Is all that glitters,
really gold?

Poison without us,
Poison within,
Open up to darkness,
come on, let me in.

I am the Darkness,
lurking in your Heart.
I'll stay there 'till the End.
I've stayed there from the Start.

I am the force,
that causes you to sin.
So do not deny,
Open up.
Let me in.

I cannot be vanquished,
I cannot die.
The light is my enemy?
Surely a lie.

Some flee before me,
Some cower in fear.
When light comes near me,
I all but disappear.

My essence is black,
I glow within.
My strength is strong,
used not for sin.

Rumors abroad,
Rumors about.
All these silly lies,
Makes me shout:

I am the Darkness,
lurking in your heart.
I'll stay there 'till the end,
I've stayed there from the start.

Hey everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been uploading any of my poetry, but I hope to upload a couple in a notebook I found. Feel free to pop a comment or critique it, I'm always looking to improve.

Maybe if things were different
we wouldn't be the same.
It seems I've lost my final life,
in this world we call a game.

We shouldn't dwell on the past
but look forward instead.
As I walk to your corpse,
I bow my head.

Oh Holy father, I ask for my love,
why must you take her early
to the skies above?

You've bestowed upon me misery,
you've bestowed upon me pain
none will notice my tears,
as they join with the rain.

Forgive me, father, for I have sinned.
My body, engulfed in greed.
Give me what i'm searching for,
Give me what I need.


--
Its poems like these that show that I'm dwelling on the past. This one means that the one love the man was destined to be with was taken away from him, and that he'd do anything to correct the mistakes that caused it to occur. He sees his beloved one last time, before leaving the church into a heavy downpour.

Before you, I thought I knew.
I thought that Misery was held in blue
eyes of lies, dry of cries.
How I wish it were true

I regret nothing, for pain's consumption
has brought me closer to you,
as close as a reflection.
Close, but so far from my grasp.

Some called me an angel,
others claimed I was a demon.
I'm neither here nor there,
I'm in-between.

Two years, that's what it took.
To empty my heart of love,
gained upon a look.

It's over now,
you don't exist.
Just a lonely heart's imagination,
you will never be missed.

This one is based upon a teenager who believed he fell in love with a girl, but had his heart broken. Over time, he's moved on.

Before you pull the trigger,
Think long and hard.
Your heart isn't lacking,
it's just missing a shard.

To replace the piece that was left behind,
Stolen like a purse at midnight.
If you were intent on this,
you wouldn't have stopped.

You don't even know how.
whether the temple or mouth,
which shall be the lock you break away,
With a piece of hollow point?

The .22's shaking,
you're hesitating,
You know this isn't the way,
you know it's not okay.

You've got friends who love ya.
You've got family who'll miss ya.
So many people on this planet,
You're not gonna quit for one.

That's it, lower the gun.
Place it on the table.
Pack your bags,
we're goin' somewhere stable.

Don't bring your phone,
just take some clothes.
Bring some cash,
You won't need anything else.

Does it look like Cleveland is right for you?
You've met a small fraction of the world.
Let's go to Rome, New York, Miami,
Just get away from here.

There's only one before you,
who understood like you do.
Who knew my flaws and loved it,
who knew my pain and removed it.

You'll never know how much I loved you.
You'll never get to say goodbye.
I left you alone under the street-light,
Because I was on a plane that night.

Flying across the country,
I had to get away.
Another heartbreak like the last,
I wouldn't be okay.

I'd be shrouded in Misery,
my eyes too dry.
My chest would hold two scars,
both from heart damage.

Maybe you could die from a broken heart,
maybe not. I don't really know.
But I think it's more punishment
to live through it.

Death is easy, simple.
Your heart stops beating,
your brain stops working.
Everything fades to nothing.

So that's why I left you,
to protect myself.
If I was hurt like that again,
I wouldn't last.

I'd cease to exist.
And you,
beautiful you.
You'd suffer as well.

So forget me,
You'll be better off.
Just a ghost of a memory,
living is difficult.

Child Of Misery

Misery kisses me ever so softly,
her lips brushing my cheek.
Pain follows just as swift,
denying what I seek.

She holds me in heartbreak,
while scolding Pain for hurting me.
She plants thoughts into my mind,
she never leaves me be.

She wants me all to herself,
yet I don't complain.
For pain has made sure,
that I have nothing to gain.

Her embrace is soothing,
her skin like ice.
Pain's skin is rough,
his squeeze chokes me.

For the two to bear me,
I cannot bear the thought.
It seems impossible,
that this is what I've wrought.

These are actually pretty good, I like 'em! :> Good job writing these. I can't wait to see more.

I always have problems rhyming and keeping the pace good, but it seems you don't. Well written!
