My Demise

by *~Emma~*   Nov 7, 2005

I'm living in the darkness
I've nothing to light my way
Everyone goes on without me
As i await the day

The screaming begins to echo
Within my hollow form
I slash away at my sorrow
My head's a thunder storm

The crimson coloured liquid
Reveals itself upon the floor
My body's become so vulnerable
Aching to the core

This is my demise
As i lay here and think
I've lost a sense of happiness
My heart begins to sink

Drawn to the bloodshed
I'm losing my grip on life
Incision's of impurity
So addicted to the knife

This is my demise
Tears stream down my face
Curious and deranged
I feel so out of place

Time is passing so rapidly
As i still await the day
I slip into the shadows
Craving light to see the way

My body now so weary
Lost of all it's life
The burdens have been lifted
By that once addictive knife

plz comment or vote
i will return the favor

    Hey, I'm not usually a fan of the cutting poems, but I really liked this one. Some of the words you used really added the affect to your imagery and the feeling of it was really well sent aswell. Excellent job, no complaints from me.
