Hey, I thaught it would be cool to have a place where you can write your own poems/lyrics, and maybe get feedback on them.

So I guess I'll start with one of my newest poems/lyrics.

Haunt Departure

Fallen from grace face down in the mud
In the abysmal shade of a burned out sun
Dead voices echo a glourious revelation
A tragic vision painted before my eyes

Amid withered leaves I walk
Through mist and sparkling light
In a forest of shadows I stalk
Surfacing memories blur my sight

Bloodstained and pale
The rope so tight around your neck
Falling into eternity
So silently...

The sight of your agonizing eyes
Portrays thy withering beauty
In the eternal garden of grief
Dance upon the meadows of bliss
The prize of your haunt departure

The lamenting gray skies
Shed tears of colorless gloom
Upon the altar of endless cries
That braught forth your doom

A life forseken
Tormented by years of misery
Falling into eternity
So silently...

Hey, Nicholas, great words! I could imagine this as the lyrics for some kind of dark, emotional, depressive music (perhaps a bit like MDB? :wink: ). I like such stuff! :D

I myself want to present to you some lyrics, which I've written for a musical side-project of mine called "Soul Clairvoyant", as my mostly German lyrics would not make too much sense in here, because only a small minority would understand them. There's also a demo of the song existing somewhere on my computer... :lol: There you go:


Little room, reddened eyes
Why do you never forget?
In this cage, bound by lies
Why do you never forgive me?

Once loved, now broken
Why do you never let me go?
Please don’t let me choke here
What did I do to deserve this hell?

I’m starving
I’m choking
I’m lying here on the floor
I’m wasting
I’m crying
I’m dying here forevermore

Hidden here, no light shed
Feeble screams die unheard
Crestfallen, no way out
Shadows eating up… my mind

Forced claustrophobic feelings
Curse the day my last hope died
To break away, to run away
The illusion’s long since dead

Stay with me my little child
Stay with me until the end, you got to
Stay with me beloved child
Play with me until the end

I’m starving (STARVE!)
I’m choking (CHOKE!)
I’m lying here on the floor (LIAR!)
I’m wasting (WASTE!)
I’m crying (CRY!)
I’m dying here forevermore (DIE!)

Stay with me…
Play with me…
Pray and never lose your faith

I’m forever caged!

Pray with me my little child
Pray with me – salvation come, you got to
Pray with me beloved child
Stay with, play with, pray to me

Father I have lost my way
Belief is not an option now
Father I cannot resolve
I don’t see a back door here…

I’m starving (STARVE!)
I’m choking (CHOKE!)
I’m lying here on the floor (LIAR!)
I’m wasting (WASTE!)
I’m crying (CRY!)
I’m dying here forevermore (DIE!)

Thanks for your kind words, and if my band will survive these turbulant and dark times, then this song might be recorded on the demo CD in the next months. At least I really hope so. Here is another poem from my pen:

Singing Voice of Ruins

The cold wind sings a new melody
The melody of a dying dream
Dark, brooding - yet somehow lovley
Inviting it's endless stream
It' afflicction an undying tragedy

Hear the cry of the lost souls
The dying who can't find their way
This creations failing unfolds
Witness it as you have every day
As the emptiness around you scolds

Hear the sorrow of the world
And it's endless torrent of misery
Where emotions once swirled
They died - replaced by agony
Something that demons cradled

Cold, gloomy and so pleasing
Thy cry of mournful sorrow
Thy every tear is bitterly easing
Your voice burns to the marrow
Watch as my heart is bleeding

Withered Rose

You were once
But no more
Everything fades
So does life and love
Like the beuty of Roses
Wither with time.....

My heart can bleed no more for you
So don't shed more tears for me
Do not mourn what we've become

But for what we could have been
Please accept my last gift
A withered rose
From my withered garden
Which is like my soul
Cold and empty

Some more lyrics (the song is even recorded already oO)
The Ruins of my Life

When I looked into your eyes
I watched my paradise collapse
I saw a world burn down inside
And there was nowhere to hide
I felt my own world crumble down
In despair I had to drown

And in ruins lies my life
Never did I want to hurt
Without you I am alone
So alone…
And through ruins I will walk
Forever wander on
With you inside my mind
Through the ruins of my life

There was no slightest spark of hope
Why have I ever dared to trust?
Deceived by my only friend
Where will I go now?

I wander on…
Over the mountains
I wander on…
Into the madness
I wander on…
Over the mountains
Into the madness
I wander on…

Why won’t you leave them alone?
Why won’t you let it all go?

And in ruins lies my life
Never did I want to hurt
Without you I am alone
So alone…
And through ruins I will walk
Forever wander on
With you inside my mind
Through the ruins of my life

How can I ever walk alone?
I was not made to live in isolation
How can I ever bear the silence?
I was not born for this damnation
No, I can never walk alone
I will not accept the solitude
Oh, I can never bear the silence
No sound can ever be as cruel

Once inside your shining eyes
I could see my paradise
It was once my place to hide
But all that’s left are ruins…
The ruins of my life

The Wedding Jacket.
Too soon, the sun sets.
If I have tears why do they not fall?
To wash away the pain,
If I could but weep an ocean.

Black lilies bloom out on the ice,
Only I can tell the venom of their scent.
Store away the past,
Fold my heart and hoard it away in the dark attic,
Choked with dust.

Take all solace from me,
Let the frost crawl over my flesh,
Wearing the wedding jacket to the funeral home.

The Poet's Curse.

At last I could speak. Hoarse,unpracticed.
She scorns my pitiful poems. If only she would listen.
I sung to her of radiance. She cared not for words.
Yet I had spoken only for her pleasure. It brought her none.
These pointless pages, I shall burn.
Pehaps the blaze could warm her skin, her heart.
So I shall be dumb once more. Powerless to sing.
Weighed down by words. Atlas' burden.
Only the quill is warm. Beating with the heart of a lark.
All else is ice but her.
If I could but capture the majesty of her eyes,
Perhaps she would listen. Perhaps not.
The twitch of the quill, the only dancing in me.
These pages of ruin. The Library of pain.
Some other's voice might gild my words.
Beloved, maybe, my ink staining another's hand.
To make her smile. Just once.
But who would serve? I know no other. But one name I know.
The Poet's Curse. What use this honeyed pen?
Bewitched, and left to death. Unsung, a million songs.
An ocean of ink. To drown.

Jesus Christ (bad hair day)

Just bang in more nails,
they're the only thing
that's holding me together.


Well, that's all I've got. Would make a damn short song, but so what.. :mrgreen:

The Coldest Kiss

Chaste, and white as marble,
Unmoving, unmoved by my ardour,
The sculpted twist of her lips,
With blood-black forest fruit slicked,
I fear once more my heart lies,
This moment bleeds between us, it slowly dies,
Is one bitter kiss worth the tears?
Is it worth the memory that haunts the ever marching years?
Is it worth all the ink and wine I would waste,
In vain toil to regain that unforgettable taste?
This is the poisoned price of desire,
Casting eternal fuel upon the coldest fire,

Yet I bow down my head,
My heart strangled with dread,
My hand beneath her delicate chin,
I draw my breath in,
I tilt her marble face toward mine,
The lashes of her eyes, divine,
Our lips meet like fire and ice,
Even the coldest kiss is worth the price

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam
Et lingua eius loquetur iudicium
Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem
Quoniam cum probatus fuerit
Accipient coronam vitae
Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison
Oh quam sancta
Quam serena
Quam benigna
Quam amoena
Oh castitatis lilium

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom
And his toungue shall speak judgment
Blessed is the man who endures temptation
For, once he has been tried
He shall receive the crown of life
Oh Lord, oh Divine Fire, have mercy

Oh Lord, oh Divine Fire why are you without mercy
Oh Lord, oh Divine Fire, you are without mercy

The tragic tale of mankinds hopes
A bleak journey to the darkest sea
Oh sacred, oh Divine Fire
Your cruelty to thine son and kine
Is visible to the one with open eyes
Oh sacred, oh Divine Fire... have mercy
Oh lily of purity...

Yes it is. It's also the Elven Lied Openeing Theme... did I forget to write it out, that it's taken from there? Hmm... sorry. I didn't mean to forget it. What do you think, is the way I continued the song good. We're gonna make a hopefully good doom-gothic metal song of it after a couple of emails.

And yes, I am Godomi on DA.

My new opus... DYou don't want to know the mood I was in...


I have fallen so low
How could I know
Helplessness holds me

I want to spread my wings and fly
And laught at you from high above
But you tore my wings
And left me all alone
In a place I don't belong

Tightly it binds me
To this forsaken sea
Of emptiness and pain

Lord breathe mercy onto me
For the child that I once was
Innocence had held onto me
Lova nad hate both made scars
Driving me to the embrace
The darkness that is to come
The chaotic feeling I face
Left better untsought by some

Dark towers towards the sky
Cries that echo on empty ears
Drowning in an uneasy sigh
Toasting the sin of virgins
Passion play of the plague
Dancing on a new holocaust
A restless oblivion to make
Until nothing is left at last

Listen to the written words
Let them devour your soul
Crown our children with thorns
Betray their faith so frail
A miriad of hopes enflamed
Burning ashes in their wake
Not on the wind but encaged
Don't look back for my sake

Normally I hate going through old stuff, but it's fun when you find things like that :D

What does this poem means ?
Whispering my given name.
Unfurls the fingers of flame.
Nameless sons and daughters of sin.
Step forward when you hear the bells ring.
