The bottomless pitAnd there I was thinking things couldn't get worse…The bottomless pit by faredmllm
Huddled up in the darkness looking for warmth…
The soil mixed with red tears of thick blood; and the scent of death is everywhere…
What a fool I am…
Thinking we have reached the bottom of the pit called life…
When the ground shock from under us…
And All hell broke loose…
Again we fall…
Will this ever end?
NIGHTS OF DARKNIGHTS OF DARK by faredmllm
i wake up at the middle of the night
i look around can't see the light
i get a pounding urge to sit up and shout
... shout... scream sounds more right
but my voice seems stifled by the tears in my eyes
my breath hardly leaves my chest... silence
silence as thick as the mud in my mouth
i take a deep breath seems heavy with the scent of death
sit up straight maybe i'll awake
will i ever awake
ever... Never... someone, anyone, WHERE ARE THE SOLDIERS OF LIGHT
the heavy stench of bodies lurks in my dizzy head
those whom have fallen yet I've never met
we will walk together on the path towards the light
may those left behind have more light in the darkest of nights
The BeggarThe Beggar by tina-go-lightly
The children mock with their cataract eyes
As I walk through the crowd with breaking cries,
"A penny, good sir?" I beg with a sob
My pleas go unheard by the leering mob.
If only my leg did not drag behind
And fingers did not hang limp by my side
Perhaps some compassion would fill my cup
If only I had a bit of good luck.
Can you understand the pangs of despair
Of being born to a life so unfair?
How I wish I could be someone like you
But if I were rich there's one thing I'd do:
I'd never walk past a person like me
There's something to be said for sympathy.
You have so much. And I? I have nothing
But a life of fear and drawn-out suff'ring.
