ON THE DARKER SIDE OF LIFE......Page 1 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
Hi everyone just wanted a place to put those written words that let out the bad to let in the good. Sure we have all had times like that so please share with me your dark side.




NO ONE KNEW

Once upon a time
This little girl was mine
Where she went and how she grew
Nobody knew
But there she was
Trying to tell her story
To ears that could not hear
And mouths that mocked her journey here
As the fire inside her
That led her out of her past
Would begin to flicker with the burdens that she bared
Grace would send a torch to light her once again
And like the wind in which it came Grace took it away
Leaving her to sing a song of sorrow
In the light of her fire
She held on to the wisdom of the essence past
And moved on through time
Now time has taken it’s toll
And the fire slowly turns to a dying ember
As she learns
No one wants to know the truth
No one wants to feel the pain
No one wants to see what happens
To the heart and mind
From passing time
So here she’s left misunderstood
To go on as Grace sees her through
How she longs for God’s arms
To take her from this world
She was born unto

WRITE AWAY


Write away my life
Write away the pain
Erase the memories


Write away my tears
Write away my fears
Erase the lies


Make a fire
Burn the writings
The way they make me burn
Down inside
Bring the tears alive
Silence the screams

A NICE PICTURE


It's a nice picture
like a good mask
It spells pain
but it makes you laugh
Like being crazy and feeling sane
you don't have to explain
It's a nice picture.

Hello everyone, Hoping to see some of your writes in here. Really have enjoyed reading thru the threads of poetry, so many very talented folks.

This Girl

There is this girl I know
The deeper her water runs
The stronger her current flows

Like the Morning Glory
She only blooms
When the rises in her direction
She's hard willed and soft centered

She sets her standards high
Then she looks them eye to eye
then she turns away on her heel

She's looking for a rose
Always gets stuck by the thorns

She's a fantasy
Come to reality

She looks into her own little world and there she smiles
As she looks at where she stands she starts to cry
Now she starts to wonder
If to reach a rose
Must she squirm between the thorns
Become part of the stem
Must she give her body
Forget her soul
To gain her goal
Or can she make it on her own

Itliving thanks for the kind words, glad you dropped in. Hope to see a poem from you here soon.



The Road

The road I'm walking on
It twists and climbs uphill
And then straight down
It curves and has many turns

But no matter which turn or curve I take
It always ends in heartache

It's lonely cold and dark
It scares me
And I shake
it's taking me to an awful place

This road I'm walking on
Lord is much to long
Seems every turn is wrong
Please help me hold on

Just A Shell

I feel like Just a shell
you say you love me
then you leave
I feel like Just a shell
you say you need me
then you don't
I feel like Just a shell
twenty seven years
you brought me tears
I feel like Just a shell
Now on wife five
you strive
I feel like Just a shell
to me you always return
knowing my love is just that strong
knowing i'll take you in
you promise once again
to make me your wife
of which I have never been
then off you go once again
I feel like Just a shell
love so deep
will always be
such a tragedy
I feel like Just a shell
think it's time to open these gates of hell
Break right out of this shell
look back no more
close the door
I'll not be home on your return
my shell has been burned

you slowly pulled me in
trusting as a friend
you made me believe
I could love again
you convinced me in your eyes
I was beautiful without disguise
you pulled me close
and kissed me tender
until I surrendered
you helt me tight
til I felt all was right
you knew you had me then
my walls all down
I belonged to you
your battle won
you left me
all undone
to fall in
and feel the pain
I once had hid from
for so long
leaving me scared and afraid
never ever to trust in anyone
haunting nightmares of what I thought we had
now always in my head
pain so deep
don't think any one can reach
yes you pulled me in
what a sin

Hello everyone, Please feel free to share a few of yours with me. There are so many talented truely feeling people on here that this has become a warm and relaxing pool to hang my feet in or take a swim in. Blue ~ Rose (whose writes always remind me of that song:Killing me softly with your song....Telling my whole life with your words) if you come to visit think you will relate to this one. Here's hoping you like it.

What You Have Done

To do what you have done to me
Don't know if I'll ever be free

You don't deserve
My love
My longing
My heartache

You don't deserve
My memories
My dreams
My mind

Yet here I sit
giving it all to you
Even though
Now I know
Your loves not true
because gone are you

I want to pierce you the way you have pierced me
Then I think to myself what insanity

But we both know
If you should return
A kiss, A tear
I'd take you back
Now how sick is that

Whispers in the Wind

Whispers in the wind
singing me a lullaby

Whispers in the wind
know your saying goodbye

Whispers in the wind
say don't beg him to stay

Whispers in the wind
say your going away

Whispers in the wind
say there's no chance

Whispers in the wind
say there's no romance

Whispers in the wind
Whispers in the wind
telling me we've reached our end
and to think I had to hear it from
Whispers in the Wind

Alone

Alone in my room
staring at the screen
pages to remind me
Valentines day is coming
and alone I will be
thoughts of you overwhelming
leave me in misery

Hello all...great writes.Here's another of mine,it's a foray into the darker side.Let me preface it by saying that I abhor domestic violence and there cannot be a happy ending.I don't know where this came from...but here it is.

NO MORE

In one hand she held a bottle
In the other was a gun
She tried to think coherently
Of when it had begun
She didn't know exactly
When her prince became a frog
But she now knew with certainty
He wouldn't treat her like a dog
She wouldn't have to lie awake
With fear 'til he came in
She'd never have to cringe or beg
He'd never swing at her again
But nore importantly to her
Her kids were safe at last
Perhaps with time the scars would heal
If they could understand the past
A monstrous piece of meanness
No longer ruled their world
In front of a bright fireplace
She'd shot the drunk where he lay curled
But even in her victory
She knew that he had won
When against her bruised temple
She placed the muzzle of the gun
And as her children wakened
Before that they would see
She gently squeezed the trigger
And of torment she was free


I don't think it gets much darker than that.

Hello All, Good to see you Broken-Soul thanks for the ecouragement, hope to see one of yours here soon. Glad to see you Nightwriter, although not your norm still very moving. Thanks for the visit and the post. Hello fallenbridge welcome liked the write and please come back soon.

Today

Today as always
I woke to face the morning
I did my daily chores
I thought of you
the day was done
I layed myself down
I fluffed the pillow
I pulled up the covers
I thought of you
I tossed and turned
tried to read
felt so all alone
I thought of you
I longed for morning
I needed to be busy
For thoughts of you
never go away

Hi ya everyone.....just another pulled out of the box from days gone past November 10th 1984 to be exact this was written on my first return to my home after my daughter had been diagnosed with lantent 3rd stage rabdomyosarcoma (soft cell tissue cancer) and there were only 4 stages. Nowdays at 25 my daughter is with me against all odds and a very happy loving person with some challenges and a inner wisdom that keeps me in awe of her.

In the Dust

As I walk upon the ground
I know I've walked upon before
and into a place they call my home
I look for something that I own
but nothing can I find
that is a part of me

So deeper I dig
Desperately in search of something to call my own
and at the bottom of a box
I find tiny pieces of my life
forgotten by the shadows in my mind

Desperately I raise them to me
putting them in place one by one
trying hard to find something to soothe my soul
and ease my mind

But like the volcano that erupts
I look at the picture that is said to be me
just to see a never ending storm in the dust

In the dust angrily I shatter the picture
and throw it away from me
as tears begin to fall in the dust

The Dust
it comes like a storm
it surrounds me til I can't breathe
People are all around me
catching glimpses in the dust
looking at a corpse they think is still alive

Listen to them as they laugh and sing
Don't they know
There is not even a tear in my eye
For dead am I In the Dust

Smoke

Behind the smokey haze she stood
watching everyone as they passed by
smoke swirling in her face
afraid of disgrace
she stood in her place
never understood why

reach out she would
if only she could
yet there she stood
smoke in her eyes

Becareful

Everybody told me to be careful with him that he is not what he seem's to be and that he is an dangerious man but what did they know they bearly know him at all and they don't know what he's really like from inside and out all they know is what they have been told, by other's
and they think they know every little thing about him but they don't.

We met through a friend of a friend at first i thought he was a little strange and odd but i blew it off because everybody is different when you'r first meeting them we sat down at the bar to start talking, and get to know one another better through talking.

He sounded like an decent type of man he was very respectful kind and honest and what he had said sounded like it was comming from deep within his heart and soul but little did i know what had happend, that night would have happend the way it did.

We left the bar to go somewhere quiet and to talk without all the loud crowd being around when we headed out the door he stoped me and got infront of me and open the door like a true gentleman should, have at first it sent a bad vibe down my spine the way he rushed infront of me.

Heading out to his truck he kept looking behind him to see if anybody was following us i didn't think much of it so i looked at him and smiled and he had this sparkle look in his eye's i've herd he has been through alot of pain, and hurt but i never knew what would have happend that night after we left the bar was to happend.

We got to his truck and he opend the door for me and waited until i got settled in the truck and he shut my door rushed to his side of the truck got in as quickly as possible and slammed and locked, the doors again i thought nothing of it.

So we started heading away from the parking lot of the bar and he started to speed up a little bit faster i just thought maybe he has alway's drove this way but he didn't slow down we came to an redlight, and he slammed on his brake's makeing my stomach tie in knot's.

We finnaly made it to where we was going and when we had pulled up he was still acting like the gentleman he was in the begining of the meet he got out of the truck and walked over to my side and, slowly open the door and let me out.

He told me he had an wonderful time tonight and he wishes this night would never have to end and then he closed my door and gave me the key to the hotel room that he had rented for the night, he told me go in make myself at home and he'll be in when he get's the stuff out of the truck.

I walked into the room and notice there was one king size bed the lights was off so i tryed switching on the light's it took it a minute to come on but it came on and he walked up behind me, with an black leather bag.

He told me to close my eye's he has something specialy for me so i did as i was told to do he reached in the bag and grab the blindfold and put it over my eye's where i couldn't see nothing, but pitch black he threw me on the bed with my leggs tied and hands behind my back.

He turned up the radio as loud as it would go so nobody could hear my scream or cry for help then he grabbed a knife out of his bag and started cutting my clothe's off with the knife peice's by peice's, the whole time it was happending i kept hearing my friend's voice saying
becareful over and over.

I preyed the lord if i ever escape from this i will not just brush off what my friend's tell me and i will listen to the message more clearly and i'm sorry for being the way i was toward's her, i wonder how could this happend i'm only 21 year's old and he looked like he was only 27.

When i got free i grabbed the knife and gashed him in the knee makeing him fall to his knee's
and ran out the door and called the police and told them what had happend, the police arrived at the place and found out he was in his late 50's and told me i was one of the
lucky one's i made it out alive.

It's been 7 year's later and i've moved out and started a new life and now i watch behind me every step i take and i never leave my house alone i don't even go out to have fun anymore i still wish i would have, listen to what my friend's told me that night.

Maybe i would not have had to go through that pain and all those hour's of fearing for my life a few day's have passed and i get a phone call from an person i have never herd of in my life and his voice, was so rusty and he whisperd the word's "i'm back".

"The Beast, The Rage Within Me" Written by Vamp ModiFiyd

I have a beast inside me
It wants to be let loose
It claws at me
Snarling to be set free
Memories from the past
The fuel for its rage
It begs to cause pain
To sink its teeth into flesh
The flesh of the one's that hurt me
Thats is all it wants in life
For that ever short pleasure
Feeling the bones crack
The smell of spilt blood
I know that I'm better than this
I battle this rage every day
It truly scares me
This knowledge I have
I am not this beast
But it is me
Will this battle ever end?
This rage has let me live
Fed me in my time of need
But I deny him his only wish
Destruction and pain I cannot allow
To release these things
Would destroy me
Because I know when I do
I will not wish to stop
I come to the realization now
In writing you this poem
I am that beast
I am it's shell
But I still fight it
Why I do not know
I fear the day it wins
For I will truly die
I am immortal in this life
But should I lose this battle
I am gone, the rage has won

This is more than a poem,
Its a chronicle of a life, mine.
These are feeling's long buried,
Revived in a conversation
I felt a flood of emotions,
The desire, the rage,
Its been a long
Since I had these feeling's
To have to fight for control again.
Sigh, I only fear the end
Of this battle for one reason
Who will win, and what will become of me?
Can I be the same without the rage?


yes the Vamp part is in respect to my poetic muse Vampyro.Wonderful woman. helped me out alot in realizing my talent.

"Lost" Written by Vamp ModiFiyd

In all eternity,
The soul search's,
For what one never knows,
When you find it,
There is a feeling
Like you have never felt,
When you lose it,
Great despair,
You fall down an endless spiral,
Wanting to die,
But the soul will survive
Searching ever still to find
What you have lost

"Despair" Written by Vamp ModiFiyd and Vampyro

Feels the rush of pain
As a knife slashes the heart
Releasing me from life in torment
My soul free to soar
But trapped in this realm
Of everlasting darkness
To never again see true loves bliss
By the light of the moon eclipse
Total darkness made into light
Illuminating the stars in flight
To fight the darkness within
The truth of worldly life
The lies of the devils kin
And the lies of love within
A love never found
And a life never lived
Left to wonder if I ever died
Can this be the end?
Or can it be the beginning?
Never gone but never here
A chance to start a new

paired minds at work.

"Conflict" Written by Vamp ModiFiyd and Vampyro

An army of darkness march's forth
Spreading fear and famine
Among the terror is love
Love for one another and for family

A family divided
Yet unable to separate
Destined to clash forever
But joined for eternity

Always in anguish
Unable to hide true feelings
But hating what they feel

Total destruction of the mind and soul
Combination of the heart and body
Two parts so intertwined
Yet always at war
Always fighting and always finding love
Never to find peace in between
But constantly finding it inside

A weakness in the work's
A strength in the mists
And a flaw on the battlefield

Coming together in a room of play
Where all are equal
Yet slaves to one another
And slaves to the body

Free minds meld into one
Combining to show unity
In a world of spite and hate
Finding comfort in arms
Among those alike


A fine pair we made I think. We have sort of lost touch with one another.Work and different timezones really dont help
