By in Personal


Losing my skin
Losing my face of past sins
What does it take to be king?
I need everything
Now I got nothing
Never in control
Losing my soul
Trying to dig out this hole
Blackness in the daylight

Nobody knows that I'm never home
Letting it all go singing funny tones
What does take to be a fling?
I need delicious sins
Now I got it all
Losing control
While in this hole
Blackness caressing with light

I thought I had it
But I was always gone
Living a life monotone
Chased by a shadow
Laughing following while I wallow
Need to expunge this clinging shit
Making me want more hits
My control completely gone

Note: I hope you enjoyed this poem and thanks for reading.

Oooh....I like this. Sounds like lyrics to a song. Truly.

Chased by a shadow, laughing, following, while I wallow- that sounds like it could be a horror story. I could see that shadow following quietly, waiting to POUNCE!

I really enjoyed this poem. I love the fact that it hinges on madness and darkness. Right up my alley.

Thanks you very much! I didn't go through some dark days for nothing, you know what I mean!

Thanks for the read, and yes dark and gloomy is right up my alley since I did walk that alley!

I walked my own dark alley as well. But I was always into the horror scene from when I was a kid.
