Shadow Sound

Every little promise that I foolishly made up-
Slowly melted back into nothingness

The sliver of hope will never be what it once was-
As my former prayers are rendered wordless

Silence is a massacre of thoughts
It's the aftermath of trauma

The walls in my head are flawed
The cracks leak in the karma
Slit   Slit   Slit
Blood from my fingers escape
Drip   Drip   Drip
Tears from my face evaporate

I scrape away at the barricades
Just so noise itself will never fade
It comes with a price I will gladly pay
A fragmented mind that will soon stray

Memories replay and recreate the despair
Of when I once felt an unrelenting desire
And then the dark corners of my soul flare
As my irises burst with a new shade of hellfire

Mist   Mist   Mist
My darkness devours my light
Wisp   Wisp   Wisp
Never again will my morals align
My inner demons counsel me-
Handing down the tools I need

Something more powerful than creed-
Raising a side of me that was once buried

The spirit of chaos takes hold
Never again will I kneel on the ground

I won't cling onto faith anymore
As I indulge in the shadow sounds
I play the lullabies of shadow
I sing the hymn of sinners

I'll continue until I'm drained of sorrow
I'll express the art of pain forever

This poem is revised for my project, titled "The Prodigy's Suicide"
In volume seven: Shadow Weaver

Shadow Echo
Shadow Echo

I'm just a figment in the glass
My tears reflect the shattered past

I hold the death of a future in my hands
Knowing it can finally be over any second
Don't waste a precious thought
On what cannot be seen

None of my failures were caught
As I continued to fall free

I cannot be considered lost
Because no one paid heed

Suicidal soul / Tragedy foretold
Fate controlled / Heartless evermore
Silenced sold / Destiny gambled
Grown cold / Bound nevermore

I turned off the switch in my mind
So let the end have its way

This will be the last time I close my eyes
I'm relieved knowing everything will soon fade

I waved good bye to the li
Shadow World
Shadow World

It's enveloping my heart
And   tainting   my   soul
I've been corrupted by the dark
A   new   power   to   behold

I'm too far gone already
Just   give   in
Accepting my tragedy
A   new   path   will   begin

Transform into what I dreamed of
No   longer   afraid
The road to peace will be victorious
A   triumph   so   great

I closed my eyes for the last time / I watched it all disappear
I left behind my old life / I've become what I've feared
I know this path is one that very few desire
But what's done is done
Never again will I look into a mirror
For my darkness and I have become one

It's what I've always want
Shadow Sun
Shadow Sun

And in that very moment, I knew it was already too late
My   vision   has   adjusted
The memories of my former life all just slipped away
My   light   has   faded

The last of the fallen sparks fluttered in the distance
My   hope   has   been   obliterated
The shadows rose to claim their long awaited radiance
My   destiny   was    always   fated
In my heart, I lost it all
To this very second, it's still my fa

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. This is my first confession: I write useless garbage that will never inspire anyone.

~tommyboywood, If you do not have anything kind to say, do not say anything at all. A lot of hard work was put in to writing this. Do not call it useless garbage, it is amazing. *ImmortalizedLies, I thought it was beautiful and very inspiring. This gave me an idea for my next poem, so thank you. Keep that keyboard close at hand. I love your poetry!

You are right. I guess if porno comes under free speech protection then lyrics that make slitting one's wrist seem appealing are too. How sad, nevertheless my bad

I didn't intend for "Slit" to be directed at the wrist part. Maybe you misinterpreted what the stanza's meant-

'Slit   Slit   Slit
Blood from my fingers escape
Drip   Drip   Drip
Tears from my face evaporate'

Notice that "Blood from my fingers escape" follows the "slit, slit, slit" part.

And then the "drip, drip, drip" is before "tears from my face evaporate"

The woman in the cover art is playing the violin, it's what inspired me to actually revise/write this piece of poetry. In my mind, at the time of imagining it- the woman was playing the violin nonstop, therefore her fingers slit from the violin strings.

The stanza did not mention anything about slitting wrists.

It's not-

'Slit   Slit   Slit
Blood from my wrists escape
Drip   Drip   Drip
Tears from my face evaporate'

I'd advise you to at least leave constructive feedback on someone else's work rather than just being a douche about it. I lost count of how many times you left rude comments on some of my pieces. I don't go around looking for flame wars with other artists on DeviantArt. I'm here to share my artwork and experience other peoples artwork.

From one artist to another, I would assume you would act more mature about certain things.
