You found a humour


Recommended Posts

You found a humour in 'most everything, and they

admired your comic wit.For

it raised them to a single mind, and brought

a warm respite to solemn rooms.

And you would gently mock my staid demeanour, for

I had become hard, although

never toward you. You were my friend: I

sheltered your life-- you lifted mine.

Oh! How we leapt and danced the summer days: played games

with wooden swords, made bows and

arrows from twigs and bits of string, that seemed

to inter-twine our different lives.

But Autumn came: and as I caught the last coach home,

you mimicked a fond adieu

to make me laugh, but all the time I knew

that I would not see you again.

interesting indeed... :icon_cool:


"Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends.

There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh."


"I don't believe you."


"Oh come, you can hear its faint echo right now. I'm here to turn up the volume.

To press the stinking face of humanity into the dark blood of its own secret heart."

"There's a starving beast inside my chest
playing with me until he's bored
Then, slowly burying his tusks in my flesh
crawling his way out he rips open old wounds

When I reach for the knife placed on the bedside table
its blade reflects my determined face
to plant it in my chest
and carve a hole so deep it snaps my veins

Hollow me out, I want to feel empty"
-- "Being Able To Feel Nothing" by Oathbreaker


"Sky turns to a deeper grey

the sun fades by the moon

hell's come from the distant hills

tortures dreams of the doomed

and they pray, yet they prey

and they pray, still they prey"
-- "Still They Prey" by Cough
