Monsters In The Dark

Now listen to what I have to say

For the wicked hide in the shadows of this day


You know nothing of what is of me

You may know the color of my eyes

But not of what they are capable to see


Now here, I've warned this upon you

For not every smile is ever true


Everything is not set in stone

You may say there is an answer

When nothing is completely known


Close your eyes, please understand

That what you may rely on is a blood-thirsty hand


Unknown of what they truly are

Watch think before you turn and talk

Someone so close to you can be so far


So remember before you go on and say

"But why would anyone do this to me anyway?"


Human nature can be full of evil and greed

Unwatched, A monster born within the shadows, full only of self pleasure and need.


It would seem,
At times,
That we can
Only grow,

To be as
Authentic as
What we are willing
To connect to,
And embrace
In the world.

We eventually
What we hide
From seeing
Is within ourselves,

And that
Very same thing
Which also
Repulses us,
About what we


We see

In others.

A Day of My Fate, Which Is Hate...

Emotional Poems

"Emo," they call me
I respond to my "name"
They laugh at me
I hang my head in shame

I walk down the hallways
I do things my way
They say, "hey, emo! You can't stay!"
I pick up my notebook and walk away
I'll stand up for myself
Just not today...

I don't fit in
People stare at me, like I am a sin
I won't fight back
My world is already black

I want to run away
I want to escape
I want to hide away
I don't want my fate

I wish it was too late
I never even got a chance
To change this hate



I know there were others
That came before me
Just like you know
That there were others before you
This is how it is, can’t you see

But I wouldn’t have
It any other way
Because they made us
Who we are in this moment
So I wouldn’t want it any other way

So this love is ours
Just ours, so lets make it happen
Marriage and children are out
But even still, lets have everything
So we cannot be misshapen

So we will stand strong
And stand together
Because I know
Any storm, any storm
Together, we can weather

Let’s keep our love stable, strong
Because it’s where I belong
In your arms
Where I can be held tight
Where nothing can be wrong

Let us be together for,
Lets start with, 5,000,000 hours
And we’ll go from there
We will see what this world can do
For us, because this love is ours
