Many have died there.

Silent screams echo throughout the deserted corridors,

the blood stained walls whitewashed.

Scarred walls tell the stories.

The stories of pain and hurt.

The stories that tell of dark times.

Times when tears, and screams

of anger and hurt,

seems all that is known.

Distorted nails scrape the walls,

and claw at the bars.

Once strong men resemble skeletons,

as they waste away,

paying for the crimes they comitted,

with no one willing to omit it or forgive.

The guard strolls down the dark corridors;

his face set hard;

his heart as cold as the walls and cells themself.

He is indifferent to what occurs

within the prison walls.

He holds the key,

to the condemned men's freedom...

but does nothing.

He walks on,

ignoring the pain.

Slowly, but surely,

the prisoners succumb to the merciless prison.

The walls bear the scars.

The floor is stained with their blood.

The bars bear scratches.

The corridors remain dark.

The prison lies empty,

but the memories of its inhabitants remain.

The guard still strolls the lonely prisons,

the innermost parts still desolate and painful.

He has become like those he refused to free...


Soon...he too, will waste away.

The walls will bear the pain he inflicted.

Darkness will countinue to inhabit the place.
Hey, this is a poem i wrote sometime last year. I don't remember much of what motivated me to write it though. Well....i really liked it and thought i would post it on this site. i found a group that deals with morbid poems so i hope to post it there. I intended for the poem to have certain meanings and if it helps u, great.
anyway, hope u like it1 :-)

p.s. i used the image preview so that readers would decide whether to read it or not. that way instead of choosing mature conent, i can showcase my in the title and still let readers decide whether to read it. if u know what i mean. anyway....hope u like the poem lol.

p.p.s please feel free to comment on the poem. i really want to know what u guys think. :-)

In this piece, you set a good story. Once again using tons of description, making this more novel than poem. There are some parts where better wording could have been used, but they generally go unnoticed unless you read it a second time around, combing it for it's flaws. You have a very interesting style, which is very prominent in all your works I have read thus far. That's a good thing, people become known because they do things in ways others do not. Always go over your work again and again and again, and make certain it is perfectly smooth, else your not showing off your true potential.
Congrats on another well written piece :)

I forgot to mention, I wasn't happy with the ending. It was too... classic THIS IS THE ENDING. if you catch my drift. Remember, originality is important.
