    Poems by October Knight


    Shattered by life
    Shattered since birth
    I'm living this hell
    Born with a curse
    In to it left standing
    The strong will survive
    Haunted by madness
    My fears are alive
    Broken with hatred
    Seduced by the pain
    Subject to demons
    Who laugh in the rain

    Alone as I am
    Left standing because
    The glass has been shattered
    From hammers above



    Here are a few older ones, I'll try to post in this thread everyday.


    Near sight, far mind

    It seemed like a dream
    So vague so black
    As i recall that day
    Lay awake in agony
    A life was painted gray

    I though you left
    I knew you did
    But i just didn't care
    Poisoned deep inside my chest
    I left a letter there

    Into the house
    consumed in black
    Read the gentle note
    Of death i wished upon your life
    Crying as i wrote

    Understand, i am insane
    It was never me with you
    I tell you now
    I hate your guts
    And forever it is true

    With heavy steps
    And cut off breaths
    I left in dead of night
    To a place
    That consumes my soul

    My Road no end in sight



    Sorrow for you

    Regrets we never lived with
    two lost, the cost so great
    Living for the moments
    We wrote, and joked, of fate

    With poisoned bodies able
    The two of us just laughed
    Of those we left unstable
    In night the thunder crashed

    I understand now
    The torment you grasped
    While all the while
    I was gripping the glass

    Dying best friends
    I remember the day
    Lost in the storm
    You just slipped away

    As a man I admit
    I'm forever sad
    This life I throw away
    Is for the one you never had


    The Valley of Roses

    The Valley of roses
    With reds gentle kiss
    The Valley of flower, surrounded by mist
    The Vast empty hearts
    Of the lonely and used
    The hungry, the weak, the lost and abused

    The Valley of Roses
    The dust on the road
    Foot steps imprint
    As Lies, they are sold.
    If truth should not conquer
    When lonely hearts break
    The Valley of Roses
    Rose, Like its namesake.

    Pain in my chest
    The Valley, a mess
    A tightness in my heart
    Breaking red pain
    I'm wasting away
    The Valley of Roses
    Will bring a new day.

    To the numb masses
    I feel your pain
    Broken hearts wander
    Red Roses in rain
    Moist empty lips
    In the Valley they sit
    The Valley of Roses
    Heart broken Imprint.


    Waking moments: Dream feelings
    Oct, 9, 9:37 pm

    Certainly something is wrong.
    I can't recall the facts
    Moments of truth are lost on a whim
    My memory's rotten and black.

    Something just isn't right
    I'm sure of it now, as I breath.
    Something is twisted
    I was born gifted
    Wanting and trying to leave.

    Something is in the wrong place
    A moment, forgotten in time
    Endlessly, longingly
    Hopelessly, drawing me
    Bringing me back
    I'm in line.

    Something isn't quite right
    Certainly something is wrong
    My minds in a storm
    Raining, but warm
    Killing me and playing this song

    " My faith is weak, but burning
    I cannot go on
    My eyes bright and yearning
    Something is wrong."

    Interrupted mid-verse
    It's speaking to me
    Avoiding my life as I watch
    Haunted by truth
    Pixels of youth
    Avoiding my life
    At all costs

  2. Wow. I am seriously impressed. Sorrow for you, Valley of Roses, Waking moments, and Shattered Glass... all of them took my breath away! You truly have a gift. :D
     
  3. Night & Day

    Forbidden with the twilight sits a moon of solid gray
    The beauty of the lunar light that hides during the day

    A gentle Sign of sharp moonlight, cracks dawn just like a whip
    And glowing Strips of crimson light the day from base to tip

    It is so bright i cannot look, but cannot look away
    Ending of another turn, another flawless day

    I cannot live my life like this enchanted by the light
    So i give in, my midnight sin, The moon it shines so bright


    Black and Green

    Of all the roads that lie ahead
    i see just black and green
    Surrounded by the midnights mist
    The moon a sacred queen

    The colors dance and shade the light
    this quite black abyss
    of all the things i miss the most
    The darkness and the mist

    In times it shades
    In times in lies
    In times of darkness
    Swallowed pride
    In times of torment
    Gifts by chance
    In times of greed, The shadows dance


    So there i stand alone
    Illuminated by the light
    Black and green enveloping
    The silent moon lit night




    Empty Life Dream

    Forever distant

    Forever Detached

    Forever Engulfed in a moon light Romance

    Forever enchanted

    Forever amazed

    Forever compelled to part with the day

    Forever So lonely

    Forever so clean


    Forever I'm chained to this empty life dream

  4. Life missed

    Pain is whats real

    Oh, God help me please
    Grant me forgiveness, I'm down on my knees
    Pray as i might i find no relief
    Surrounded by pain and haunted by grief
    Why can't i forgive
    Why can't i forget
    Why Cant i let go of the time that was spent
    Time that was lost
    that has faded to past
    So here,wasted years
    I'm living at last

    USER

    I Used up my time
    I used up my pride
    I used up the feelings i once had inside
    I used up to much
    I used up you too
    I used up the love
    I never loved you


    Snowed in

    The fleeting sea of endless white
    The darkened side of snow
    The blankets,cold, froze long ago
    The bravest men won't go

    The void onsets that dull the heart
    Frozen blood they pump
    Trees of green frozen clean
    now a hollowed stump

    So beneath the massacre
    foot prints are erased
    The endless blight
    All painted white
    To die is an escape.



     
  5. This is beautiful, Octy!, I love the rhyming scheme that you use, and I love Night & Day, and Black & Green is wonderful! You have a gift, babe.
     
  6. Awake I stay


    As you sleep i stand on guard
    Watching as you rest
    Devils live in darkest eyes
    Claiming those that test

    Angles guarding over thee
    I pray they will at least
    I've made a deal with that man
    No angels left for me

    My darkest side stays up till dawn
    Eyes open never sleep
    When i close my eyes to rest
    They'll come for you and me

    There in the distance i see them
    Climbing in the sky
    Ripping through reality
    Red eyes piercing as they dive

    I stand alone
    I wait for them
    I shake but I will fight
    I stand on guard
    I stand for you
    Into the dead of night

    Until the endless dues are paid
    My life is just a ghost
    Guarding angels as they sleep
    Sainted, while i roast

    I feel no pain to come
    Though i know it will
    I am the man in black
    I await the night to kill.

    Sainted Protection
    Given the sign
    Though mine is black and red
    Demons haunt me while i breath
    Ill watch out, rest your head

    I am The Sinner
    I am the cursed
    My eyes see only black
    They come at night
    They come to kill
    I know that they'll be back

    As you sleep i stay awake
    Watching in the sky
    And with all I love
    I'll care for you
    Until the day i die

    That.... That is a BMF poem. Seriously.
     
  8. The ones

    Blown out minds
    I helped create
    Lonely souls
    Possessed by hate

    They beg and crawl
    And yell and cry
    Like souls hung up
    In hell to dry

    I see them there
    In my darkest dream
    I see them there
    And hear them scream

    "Why did you leave us,
    Why did you flee,
    Why didn't you help us"
    They cry out to me

    I already did
    What can't be undone
    to save those lost
    Ill sacrifice one

    When I am Alone
    I remember
    The ones
    That I left to die
    that day in the sun

    I cannot forget
    My body's a cage
    Harboring guilt
    sadness and rage

    So it is said
    To all those forgot
    I am trapped by my sins
    and deserved what i got

    Pressing Depression


    I have no friends
    I have no life
    My past is painted gray

    Evil as i am i was
    Redemption for i pray

    Fight so hard for every step
    in this swamp called life
    tension stress sets hard and thick
    I cut it with my life

    Numb to what you call true love
    I gave up on that truth
    grains of sand laugh as they fall
    My slipping wasted youth

    forever i will live in fear
    Of life, in lies it rests

    Forever I will remain impure
    A darkened soulless mess.

  9. Seasonal bliss

    Live throughout the summer days
    that slowly burn to reddish hue
    as i watch the daylight fade
    Green and reds to black and blue
    softly crunching leaves afoot
    that mark my path in fall
    or Autumn's kaleidoscope of change
    seasons art for one and all
    But seeing through the nature kiss
    Cold nights and early dawn
    A fine layer white, is pouring mist
    I cry in Winters call




    WINTER FLUSH

    Hot chocolate with a Little cream.
    Light snow falls from the sky.
    The Brightness of a Yuletide Dream
    caught in a child's eye.

    Fires burn in blackened stoves
    Oak and fresh green mint
    Essence choose are fruit and clove
    and ginger, just a hint.

    Inspiring, this season brings
    Love to one and all.
    Letting all the hatred go
    To answer winter's call.

  12. Wellness leaves (Sick feelings)

    Iron grip embedded
    Sharp pain in my chest
    Inflicting me with torment
    Robbing me of rest

    Under nest of sorrow
    Wicked as it implants
    Thorns of twisted vision
    Filled with 'no' and 'can't'

    No rest on the horizon
    Blackened, burnt and bruised
    Careless, hurt and tortured
    Weak with fear, abused

    Close my eyes another day
    This night is sharp like glass
    Sleep with you, awaiting
    I'm in an iron cast

  13. Lychgate

    Closing of the steel gates
    The barking dogs at dawn
    Ivied walls , green, covered tall
    No need to carry on

    The smell of sulfur

    Cemented in
    Oh, how those beasts do bite.

    Rows of dead

    don't rest your head
    Another sleepless night

    With cold stone pillars standing

    In November's early frost
    The sulfured souls demanding
    Life, but it was lost.

    The taste of ash

    Inside my chest
    An uphill fight is won

    A lonely soul

    is laid to rest
    Searching for his son

    Eroded, black and blistered

    Walking through the cold
    The young don't seem to understand
    But neither do the old.

    A hope today

    Is pressed away
    Resurfaces at dawn

    The empty Crypt

    Cracked and bent
    It's occupant is gone

    Names fade away with age

    But memory, not lost.
    Centuries ago, it seems
    To die with winter's frost

    Stone as gray

    To charcoal
    Why does the sulfur burn?

    A longing heart,

    It's awful.

    We all will get our turn.

  14. Hollowed Escape

    Chances taken all in vain
    Through the cloud is always rain
    Through the dark is always sight
    Through the dusk is always night

    In my dreams the shadows Dance

    Eyes wide shut,seen just by chance
    In the darkest dream is Black
    Where the deepest pain is at

    Although a light may shine within

    Mornings light is cast by sin
    Redemption lost i cant repent
    my morals shot and broke and bent

    so through all this i must find peace

    Inside my chest a dormant beast
    Hollowed be mine soul at last
    Death is here, my life is past

    Dark Sun

    Enchanted by the blackened sun
    With endless rays of night
    beckoning, in silence brings
    A troubled mind to sight
    Although sometimes I feel adrift
    I know I'll never stray
    Forever known
    when truth be told
    I hate the light of day


     
  15. Untitled #1

    Crushing dawn at twilight
    A chilling wind blows past
    Haunted voices calling
    Grip the shattered glass

    Bringing back the torture
    One thousand years of pain
    At last the past comes calling
    Feeding on the sane

    Mismatched fate so brutal
    Understand me clear
    Left, unheard in torment
    That broken, shattered mirror

    A statue, one left standing
    Carved into the night
    Another wasted evening
    Another wasted life

  16. What I loved most about reading these poems, was the fact that I was lying beside you as I read them. Your poetry kicks ass.
