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...
Nicholas

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:

Evercaged

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
Nicholas

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
Nothing

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
Nicholas

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
Dedy

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.
Pino

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

Lilium

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...

Fallen

No...
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

So...
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
Nicholas

Something like:

It was a man who fell in the mud
then he heard an oink
then he ran of
because he wasn't any cool.

:P

Only that it rhymes.


Oh Gods! It looks like nursery rhymes, isn't it? I thought it was a serious thread about poetry and now I feel like fooled ^^

Tears of the Earth

The rain falls down
To drown the ashes of decay
To wash away the tears of yesterday

Yet no light shines through
The dark clouds filled with gloom
Are they the harbingers of doom?

Watch as each one falls
And shatters in it's infinite pain
Tears of the Earth, is it rain?

I attempt to write myself

If by any chance youd like to have a look at my writing blog (dont feel obliged), then you can do at:

www.myspace.com/zombie_flesh_eater

It can be found at the top right hand side of my page
Please feel free to leave comments, good or bad, because I would like to know what a greater number of people think.....

I'll admit now its not the greatest, but its from the heart.

Here's one of the more recent efforts:

"Tree Of Woe"
------------
On a clear day
You can see forever
From the hill
By the Hanging tree

Distant thunder rumbles
As the heavens open
Angels cry tears of sorrow
Singing sweetly of my end

And as my light fades
A great sorrow covers the land
This place be cursed forever
None shall see the beauty I saw

"Oh where is my God
Why has he forsaken me?"

With despair angels cried my name
I am granted everlasting peace
For I have died for love...

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

No proper title for this yet, but its about Lilith and Adam in the garden of eden
a couple of parts are inspired by dylan thomas poems

"Lilith"
--------
Sit in ruin, freezing the soils
On doubt and dark, I feed my nerves
Dividing day and night
Love and light bursts from the throat
Punctual as death...

Then, in the cold night
A black tongued demon
Brings forth the winter moon
The death of the summer

The dead turn up its eye
Where once the green gardens grew
A land laid to waste now lies
Casting shadows
Dry as her eternal tomb

My heart is drained,
Sorrow cripples the land
Tears turned red,
Warning of the coming fury
Breaking through the weary winter

New life
A procession, the eye forwarns
Eyes filled with darkness
And the womb drove in a death
As the life leaked out

Life rose from her roaring seas
Light broke, where no sun did shine
The fruit of man, the seed of mankind
Translating to the heart
The first characters of life and death

I dreamed this genesis in death, fallen...
She was who I held, With child she died
Now silently she does lay
In gardens green forever more
The night is near, I inhale her death
I crossed her hands and closed her fists
For I see a rainbow near

Wonder...
Beyond this garden
The land lies out of sight
Nothing disturbs her eternal rest
Will I stay here till the day I die?...

I gaze upon her cold stone fondly
I stand for this memorials sake...
Alone

You who bow down at cross and altar
Remember and pity him
The message of a dying christ
Words unfailing 'til blood runs foul

Deliver me, master, saviour
Everything ends....

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

Now all the forum has been infected by our French mate :lol:
Very nice poem indeed! It reminds me of something but cant remember what...
No offense, you should have made a typing error coz "louange" is feminine or plural but not masculine.

I will post my poem latter, Im supposed to be working at school for now...

another one from me.. typical MDB influences i guess


"Vengeance"
-----------
He is the evil of this world
I will avenge you my beauty
I will place my hands on his throat
Until I hear his last dying breath

He will suffer like none before him
As I take his petty life
It will be a glorious sight
I stand over his prone body

I beg for your forgiveness oh Lord!
Why show me these horrid visions?
Give me strength, my master
Place me on thy right shoulder

Show me the way forth
To slay my enemy
I shall seek him out among many
It will not cease til he has died

He has seen the face of revenge
He will feel every tear I have cried
His death will be splendid
He will suffer like no other

"The Solitude"
---------------
A coming darkness, Evil will shadow the land,
All that is good shall perish beneath it...
In darkness, shining stars will fall...
Out of the black despair

One pure of heart will rise...

Return to beauty
Love will live through eternity...
Return to the solitude
May it all end with Tranquility...

The end came to soon...

From nowhere

From the age of no past
No history can be told
How long will one cycle last
In the absence of time nothing grows old

From nowhere we came forth
Back to nothing we returned
All life flourished in between
An eternal moment, too short to be see

A slowly fading shadow was cast
An empty universe of purity
The limit of infinity was passed
A mind game of vast obscurity


€ 100:- to the one who figures out what it's about. :wink:


Is it about in two minds? :lol:

"An Elegy"
---------
I wake and see the night for the first time
I turn and flee...
I stumble amongst the leaves
As paradise burns around me...

Don't fall so madly in love with solitude
You lose your way and fall...

As light reflects on the water
Stare for what seems an eternity
I feel at one with the earth
Just like the first time you kissed me

As light descends to shade
I bask in her glowing light
I wept when she died
Tears fell from the stars that night...

Also, my newest lyrics for my band 'The Return To Solitude' (Looking for members BTW!) www.myspace.com/thedarkcaressmetal

Its generic doom/romance , so please dont rip me apart..
comments welcomed :-D



"A Lover Mourns"
-----------------
As I kneel at the cold stone
And worship these false idols
I realise the God's have failed me
All my faith departed with you

My one true love has died

Tears in silent mourning
A great sorrow fills my heart
I wish to be alone
So hopelessly and utterly alone

I still remember...
Before the darkness came:

"Be mine, mine forever more"

Oh, to love again!
My tears will remain unequalled
Through the annals of time...
I still remember...

"Won't you come away with me?"

Into a blackened grave
Where flowers of beauty grow
Tis marked for only me
I will suffer for my sin and woe

"...I love you, forever, and always..."


Endlessly greiving...
Where lovers mourn....

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

more crap from me. No title for this one, Im thinking of using them for future projects

-------------

When the clouds are cursed
To thunder
Let the tears of time
Fall into my eyes

Awaken, the sleeper
Leave the cold ground where you lay
Slow in a sleeping wind
The heart gives up its dead

I once knew the day and night
and yet, I still suffer
Tears stream down the face
Lost forever in the falling rain

The silence echoes through eternity
My heart once knew love...

Though lovers be lost
Love shall not
The grave is watered
By grieving tears

Though I could not cry
I shed a tear for joy into the unearthly flood
Now in the darkness,
There is only yourself and myself

My heart still knows love
But, the rain is endless...

Ryozan wrote:I wrote this to celebrate the chains that captivate our sickening thoughts:


Macabre Dance:

Macabre dance, clouds spell my misery at the sky.
It’s wonderful.
In true and utter freedom, I fear and wail, and scream and die.
Alone, curled up on the streets.
In heavy rain.
The pure water cleansing your septic body and all of her awe inspiring feats.
I cleave to you, so alone without you.
So alone with you.

Crying for someone you have never met.
To this day.
Colour all rivers red.
Dreaded we are.
See the children fall.
For your paradise is far.
Pitiful stench.
On the fact that we may forever burn.
Drink to this moment.

Drown in vast rivers.
Splendid in solitude.
Awe of reality tears passion away.
In sovereign sociality our sick and twisted game rises to her dreadful chant.

Standing on mere infants crushing their heads to lick their bloodied remains.
Ignorant of how futile their sickening attempt at life is.

In a way, I see Aaron's work reflecting in it, and then it feels like it has been stolen, but I can't recall myself doing it, maybe someone can help me.


I can't help you and your poem is OK.
The only think I remember is about macabre dance in the medieval ages. They were drawn at first during the black plague in the XIV Century to show that the same fatal destiny awaited everyone, even the princes or the rich. The death don't care about social position. Besides, because of the traumatising presence of death in everyday life, people tried to depict it often to minimise the impact it could have had. Basically, it serves as a deep reflection about life and death in those times of war and diseases.

Ok, katatonia fans might see the influence from the song "without god"
but i like it :-)

"God Is dead (and shall forever be)"
--------------
Crimson Tears, A mournful cry
Unbridled despair and sorrow
A pure unforgiving coldness
The return to solitude...

Silence enshrined through ages
Crippled with a slow death
From shadows comes a light
A gentle glowing light

Telling of a coming darkness...
Evil will shadow the land
All that is good shall perish beneath it
In darkness, shining stars will fall

Out of the black despair
The pure of heart will rise...
Love will live through eternity...
The return to solitude...

Angels wings are stained with blood
For the love of God, the love of nothing...
I weep as tears fall from the heavens
Love is lost, lost forever more

I am the reason why the angels cry
As I watch the throne of god shatter and fall
I am nailed to a cross of my own creation
Love whispers 'goodbye' as I slowly fade away...

My fucking God is dead

I got bored today, so here you go, more crap churned out by me



"Quiescence"
---------
As I looked upon the face of my love
It's Beauty stayed my icy hand
And from that day forward
I was as one dead...
Love's face now torn and lifeless
Tearful, I mourn in the silent rain

The lonely view she handed to me
It never fades with time
Weeping through the weather
Embraced in grief
She will live forever
In This beating heart
I am tearful, I cry...

I lay, a ruin, at the cold stone
The roses wither and fade with time
I fell asleep in the snow
And Dreamt of my bride
Condemned to sorrow
I dwell now in grief
The blackness overwhelms me

My life fades with my tears
The stars are torn
As heaven calls me to sleep
Tearful, I cry... I love you...

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

Whispering my given name.
Unfurls the fingers of flame.
Nameless sons and daughters of sin.
Step forward when you hear the bells ring.

another crappy effort from me, cant seem to get back into the swing of writing :-(



Untitled
---------

I feel I've lost my grip on this reality

Longing to feel you by my side
I fear all hope is lost to the tide

I feel an emptiness deep within me
Always falling without you

Since you've been gone I've been so lost

I guess I always knew that you'd leave
But I could never bear that sorrow and grief

Beyond this life lies a place with you at my side
We can walk hand in hand through beautiful meadows

But until the day we are together
I will always have my memories to keep

Are you out there?
I've been alone far too long

I cant find a way to reach you
Since you've been gone I've been so lost

I wish you could see the love in my heart
I'm sure you'd turn and flee

But I'll have my memories to keep
Always remembering..

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

My only love shall be thee

I'm drowning into abysses of desire,
You, the light of succubus,
It is you who I have seen,
You casted your miserable spell

For a while it has disappeared,
An emerald aura crossed us,
Ancient portraits of dying emperors
Were our only mirror

And you will be saved !
Oh my love, forever
In your harms of sanctity
You unblessed me with tears

Follower of the eternity,
I shall always be your knight,
The one who embrassed darkness,
The only one you had ever loved.

Cunt of Midian,
With all your minions,
You're the whore of the Devil,
Sucking the forbidden juice

And you die, you die,
Of this searing desire
That will be your tomb
Forever, me, the follower

Entering the valley,
I shall never give up,
But succubus, behold !
Your Lord has now appeared

And this gentle serrenade,
For you to hear,
Will just be the song,
The song of Death.

i dont know if ill be proverbially beaten to a pulp for posting published writers work, but I just want to show the poem im in love with at the moment... Not even sure why, but there goes logic out the window..

"Antigonish"

As I was going up the stair
I saw a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away...


When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door...


Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away

Yes, this is cool.. :D

For some reason it makes me think of the song "Conjure of Sacrifice" from the soundtrack of this "Skeleton Key" movie. It has the same manic touch to it, somehow.

A couple (of old ones) from me..

Dreamer
by ~TheLastLonelyMan

I see you in dreams
Your smile captured my heart
A fleeting glimpse
And I'm hopeless again

You came to me in a dream
And now I long for the night..

-------

The River
by ~TheLastLonelyMan

As my thoughts drifted out on the water
My reflection frayed and scattered
With only you in my eyes and heart
The illusion of grief is shattered...

What is love, if not everything?..

Thought: Worry..
by ~TheLastLonelyMan

(Love is like a flower,
Even the most beautiful kind will die)

My Hand in yours
I hold you and you turn away
I seek forgiveness in your eyes
Long lost are those days.

How do I save this?
My heart longs for those days

Love flowing through my chest
Now unrequited
My heart sinks when I see you smile
I know it's not for me...

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..

Out of the cold the snowman grew
Into the fire the snowman flew
Out of the fire came the blue
Does this poem annoy you?

"Love Is.."

Always Without the right words to say
Lacking a sense of empathy
Moving like a ghost before my eyes,
I fall without fail for the vision that set fire to the stars

"The Poet Speaks"
-----------------------

All you love is repaid with pain

The poet speaks
In a still, small voice
I am the servant,
This heart is true.

I call on thee;
For thee to heal me.
Of all human woe,
In the recess of the heart.

Guard over me,
If ever I need thee,
Into my deepest heart
And still the poet speaks.

I had already posted this ten years ago

A dialogue with planarians

You, who are small
You, who are simple
You, who have no brains
Tell me how to find peace of mind.

We don´t know how to find peace
We don´t know how to love
We just know how to live.

We´ve got a lot in common, you and I.
I am a leaf in the wind
I am a drop in the sea
I am a spark of the fire
I am a bird in the sky.

Life holds mysteries to me not yet explored,
Mechanics in my soul that should already work but sleep still
The functions of organic life I do know well, but all what´s more
What bothers peoples minds and hearts...

What bothers peoples minds and hearts?
What should bother anyone apart from living and survive?
What use is your thinking and concern
When it leads you so far away from all you only need?

What are the things I need, and what of all I want does really matter?
Won´t what I wish eat me up in the end?
I don´t know what makes me think instead of simply live like you.
A strange nature within my self struggles with the flame of life that only wants to burn
Somehow both pursue the same, but in different ways.

Increasing complexity leads to collapse
The building of your world is frail
We are plain and strong, but you will break down
The consciousness you all adore will be your end.

Everyone will end once,
I will, and so do you.
But what´s done in between?
My nature tells me what to do.
If there´s an urge in me driving me on more tortuous paths than you, I have to follow.
Life is a mouth only death can feed
(J.H. Fabre)

I've dusted off a couple of lyrics that I never used but which I found interesting to re-read, trying to figure out what was going on in my head. Obviously influenced by Mr. Stainthorpe, as always.

A LINGERING PROMISE

The cold body of the Christ
A stained shroud falling away
Tears from his followers
Rivulets running red
Perversion in system
Virtues painted a canvas
of the skin of the dead
Holy, holy, you make it holy
In the blood of the martyr
Sacred mystery
In the centuries to come
Misery endless

Engravers of tombs, callused hands working
To forge an epitaph worthy of forever
Yet silent is he who rose from the darkness
and spoke not a word anymore
His promise does linger
In their pointed fingers
Believe or burn

What seeds are sown in the dreams of the children?

Driven to insanity
On the brink of humanity
Here, on the edge
Knives shall be unsheathed
Here, at the end
Self-fulfilling prophecies
In the custody of soulless men
To death, to death
Break every last godless bone
The gods are coming
Home

MY BLOOD, YOUR HANDS

So be it. A whore and enemy.
Contemptuous and without empathy.
I have walked on hallowed ground.
And the soil remained soil.
No matter the blessings cast upon the dirt.
Bones remain bones, no water makes them glow.
No idiot's choice of words can summon a halo.
So be it. The world is dying.
Humanity rapes itself.
Systematized imagination. Indoctrination.
And as always, the children must suffer.
Viral insanity, salvation.
The pit where ignorance breeds
and violates the bodies of those who
could have been
They could have been

In this dark hour on Earth
I lose my sleep
A whimpering messiah
with blood on his hands
Celebrate life
In spite of you
I breed in chaotic frenzy!

Still my anger growls within my throat
Still my mouth is filled with sharks´ teeth

I do not want to whisper when I like to scream
I do not want to sit down when I like to run
I do not want to smile when I like to bite
I do not want to love when I like to hate

I want the storm, the night, the dark, the solitude
I want to fly but my wings are broken
Life is a mouth only death can feed
(J.H. Fabre)

I found some writings in my computer´s depths and before they keep rotting silently into oblivion I could post the first one (if I already had posted them all many years ago I´m sorry but I do not know anymore).

I have walked the ocean. I stood on the egde of the ridge and have seen the darkest abyss. I went down into the deepest chasm where radiant flames lightened my path and the songs of the sirens reached my ears from high above. I have seen the great old who was dreaming of ancient times when all waters were his reign. I saw the twisted one who tried to lure me into her deadly embrace with thousand voiceless whispers. And I met the most dangerous of all, whose all interweaving mind I made a narrow escape and who is seeking me and ever will until he has found me, and nobody has ever escaped him and never will. His huge shadow hangs over me until the day I will have to face him.
Life is a mouth only death can feed

Lyrics I provided for UK Black Metal band Funeral Throne, for their (at the time, instrumental) track "Vessel". (as featured on their 2015 album "Threshold")

"Vessel"

Into the sleeping mass I set forth
Pale rain over dwindling labours
A branded forehead
That binds in every form of death
With every glance the globe of genesis is mine
Strength beneath my life
The sign is here for the second coming

Of Shades and symbols
And guilts we renounce

Obey and ride with us through the mire
All works of the void united in blood
In the beginning was the glorious fire
The burning cipher
Accept this touch of darkness
And rejoice in the grip of evil

We will not
Bow to the lesser
We are not
Bound to your fate
We show not
Fear of your jagged tongues
The descended rise
And shall remain deathless

Phosphorus
Shine through my wounds
Turn your back on the burning world
This vessel
Your light

Through the bowels of the dying whore
The red dawn is silent
And Passing through

"Blessed are the hands that mold my ashes
Into the bricks of the final temple
Blessed are the hands that hold me under
For they are those that pull me out again."

My divine negative, No joy can be compared to you, And no conquest can be equated with you, No euphoria can be compared with you, And no love can ever replace you..
