Empty Life

Poem By Angel of Darkness

When happiness is just a dream
In memory's distant past
And marriage just a fantasy
Which never seems to last

When laughter is unheard of
And frowns replace a smile
When people live in silence
And friends go out of style

When love is an unknown word
And hate the thriving passion
When peace is far behind us
And war the latest fashion

When all these things come to pass
And every word's a hidden knife
Then people are merely shadows
Just living an empty life

I'M No Angel

Painting on a beautiful smile, pretending to care
Acting innocent, in reality I'm harsh mean and unfair
Glowing eyes that sparkle, covering up all the lies
Everyone loves me, but I'm happily living in disguise

Evil Inside

It was born not long ago,
i was just a kid i didn't know
when my mom and dad fell apart.
It grew inside of me, deep inside my heart.

Darkened Souls

His eyes where of darkness
Reflected from his soul
His heart had been shattered
Left broken and cold

Angel On My Shoulder

There's an angel on my shoulder,
asking me whats wrong?
and as i speak the words to her
she starts to sing a song

Being Found

In the dark alley
She hides away
From everyone and everything
Because she ran away today


Why can't we sleep forever
And live inside our dreams
Sheltered from the heartbreak
That life can sometimes bring
