What These Eyes See

With these eyes, I look at thee
And see not what others see
Instead I see beneath the mask
To find out what, you need not ask
You need but look into your heart
To find out what you truly are
Your heart is black, far from divine
But shame on me, for so is mine.

My Angel

You are my angel,  and even though
Your skin may not be as white as snow
Your wings they are the deepest black
That would put to shame a witch’s cat
And instead of a halo, you have horns
The tips of which are sharp as thorns
You’re still my angel, and you should know
Whatever your destination, my soul will go.


I feel I’m trapped, nowhere to go
Time quickly passes and flows
I look around, but can see nothing
Nor hear a sound, nor feel a sting
I believe that you will truly find
That I am trapped within my mind.

What Lies Within

In shadow, in darkness, beneath everyone's guise,
Past the flesh, through the bone, hidden with lies,
A face, a secret, that the world won't abide,
A demon, a nightmare, which we choose to hide.

Encroaching Shadow

The shadow approaches, full of malice and hate,
Will you cower and run, will you shiver and shake?
It engulfs all around it, consuming the light,
Will you be brave, will you stay there and fight?
May I suggest an alternative, a separate stand,
Reach out to the darkness, let it take you by the hand.
Some poems I wrote. Very short.

I hadn't realized this was a series of separate poems until I read the description. Tbh honest if you read as if it was one it makes an odd sort of sense. Anyway, Beautiful job.

Joedirtbeach Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
Most of these speak of inner demons that you ignore and the last is about empracing it. At least thats what I got out of it. They are very dark, but they speak the truth
MoonlightOrchids Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Great poem! Everything flows very nicely, and it always kind of keeps you on the edge of your mind, not sure what will happen, and not quite wanting to know. But of course you have to keep on reading, because the end really pulls it all together in a "last goodbye" type of thing. It's really good!
darknessanddeath14 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010
WOW! that was a good poem. i really liked. my poems arent that good anymore. i think i lost my flare, but this poem is reallly cool.

It seems your poems have an edge that no one seems to notice. The vibe that these poems have been created for. Excellently brilliant, if you mind me saying.

very nice poems.....
dark is alright some of the time
yet everyone have a light to shine
Darkness can erase the beauty of day
and life will forever be shades of gray
so can you; oh would you please
shine some of your light my way?
