  *Once again, I am delving into the dark side of poetry. Enjoy!*


There is more to life than this
When we start looking into people, instead of at them,
We discover who they truly are
It is more alarming to read the pain in someone's eyes
Than to feel it behind your own
Pain is life,
Loss, Suffering, Rejection
When did these become so romantic?
The darker side of human emotions hardly deserves to be glamorized
In our own mortality,
Suffering is death, and death is entrapment
One could scarcely turn that into a song
It is none but that which we find, recognize, and dread
Only through the misinterpretations of these truths
Can we ignore them
We laugh and play games,
But we know darkness is lurking nearby
Denial has never saved anyone,
And it looks disgusting on you.


It's so obvious
That the promise
Keeps me here
Painting pictures where
All the colors
Disappear

I like it, I like it alot.  It is amazing just how romantic darkness can be.  Why is that, I don't know.  But I know that this was a great poem.  Keep it up.

Holy $#!+!!! Excellent writing! Haven't checked in in a while, glad I did today. The dark hatred for those that are living an illusion comes through on the last line. People are content to go about ignoring the fact that we are all just misery with a dose of joy every once in a while. Only your reality can make you happy, but it's areality you make for yourself and say, " I'm comfortable here in my box, this is real ". The whole time the "real" world around you is going to hell in a hand basket, and you're oblivious.

alwayz,

And forcing our darkest souls to unfold...
And pushing us into self-destruction...."
