Hi. This is Moat. And this is where I would like to see people post some morbid poems, stories, etc. Although they don't have to, and I will be mainly the one posting here. First entry to my Morbid Literature Journal:

A very much more selfless, brighter, and, dare I say, more optimistic and therefore idiotic, view.

The Only Thing I Ask

I am on the test, the trial
For my life, the danger is dire
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Is to keep others from the same fate
Protect them from this amount of hate
Save the others
Please God the only thing I ask of You
Save my friends and my mother
From this horror
My photographs, my memories
Will have to help me through
I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missin them again
The hatred of others burns like fire
Why do they hate me?
I'm just a man
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Protect my family and friends
And my strength, it will hold
Through the dark and through the cold
I'm hurting and I'm hated
They hurt me with word and rod
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
The others around me have lost hope
But I pray to You
And I remember the good times
You have given me
With my family and friends
And I can pull through
Because hurt is nothing new
In this world
And all I need to do
Is pray again to You
I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missin them again
The hatred of others burns like fire
Why do they hate me?
I'm just a man
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Protect my family and friends
And my strength, it will hold
Through the dark and through the cold
I am weak outside
They have hurt my body and my mind
For no reason other than I'm different
I believe that the other prisoners went
Well, I am still alive
As long as I can, time after time
Think about those I love
Those left so far behind
But I can't help but wish
That I could be there again
Back where I love to be
There's nothing here for me
On this road of life
But I trust You, dear God
And I pray to You, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Save them this day
I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missin them again
The hatred of others burns like fire
Why do they hate me?
I'm just a man
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Protect my family and friends
And my strength, it will hold
Through the dark and through the cold
There's no one here
Noplace to go
My overwhelming fear
Oh, no no no
But it's not for me
It's for them
I will believe they're safe
Until the end
And there may be horror
There may be strife
But if I lose them
It'll be like a knife
And to you I pray
Dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Protect them on this darkest day
When I'm not around
When I'm much too far away
I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missin them again
The hatred of others burns like fire
Why do they hate me?
I'm just a man
But, dear God
The only thing I ask of You
Protect my family and friends
And my strength, it will hold
Through the dark and through the cold
Dear God
You can take me
Save them, protect them
The only thing I ask
Save the others from this fate
Protect them all, upon this day

A more optimistic poem, with a different point of view.

Life Goes On

I shoulda seen it coming
From miles and miles away
You were moving away from life
Every single day
But now you're gone, I can't remember
How does life go on?
How can life go on?
But life goes on!
Yet I can't deny
That every time I smile
I just wanna cry!
And every step feels
Like it's miles away
These wounds won't heal
After another day
But life goes on...
And I'll stay even though you are gone!
Cuz life goes on!
Every passing hour
Ticks on the clock tower
And I know that I can't renew
The truth
And I know I'll be half-stuck in life
Every moment cutting in like a knife
But I still have friends!
And they will follow me through to the end!
So life goes on!
But life goes on!
Yet I can't deny
That every time I smile
I just wanna cry!
And every step feels
Like it's miles away
These wounds won't heal
After another day
But life goes on...
And I'll stay even though you are gone!
Cuz life goes on!
I never thought I would see the day
All of the skies in my mind
Turned all dark and gray
And you have faded away
But still life goes on!
Even though you are gone!
We're faking our smiles
Even though they can see
I can barely last without you and me
But still does life go on!
But life goes on!
Yet I can't deny
That every time I smile
I just wanna cry!
And every step feels
Like it's miles away
These wounds won't heal
After another day
But life goes on...
And I'll stay even though you are gone!
Cuz life goes on!
I'm going to pieces every time
And even though you all are kind
I can't keep the pain, out of my mind!
Cuz I got a few hugs
A casserole or two
But none of that's replacing you!
And still life goes on and on!
But life goes on!
Yet I can't deny
That every time I smile
I just wanna cry!
And every step feels
Like it's miles away
These wounds won't heal
After another day
But life goes on...
And I'll stay even though you are gone!
Cuz life goes on!
I've had a bad day
I can't push it away
Cuz I know you aren't there
And I am so scared
But life will go on....
Life will go on

Can't See The Day


Well, take a look at this world
What has it come to?
So stark and so cold
I really wish I could start anew
So, will we ever see the day
When this world gets better
When life isn't cruel and gray?
We'll have to wait and see
You and me
We'll wait and see that,
If it's possible in this world
So dark and cruel
I cannot see the day
I don't think I can
Really, in this world so dark and gray
Well, still we will stand
Because I won't give in
I cannot see the day
When people no longer die
But I'll be G-Dbleeped) if I don't try!
Hey, see the soldiers sent out today?
They're scared, but still they enter the fray
Well, we aren't gonna fuel
Their deaths, so very cruel
In this world
Hey, we'll stand straight and tall
And we won't give up and fall
We cannot see the day
But we sure as hell are gonna try!
Just think and dream
Of a life after that day
Of a life that's good and gleams
Well, we may, just may
See it and live it
But in this world
It can't happen
So you can keep on dreamin
I'll just keep on livin!
I cannot see the day
I don't think I can
Really, in this world so dark and gray
Well, still we will stand
Because I won't give in
I cannot see the day
When people no longer die
But I'll be (G-D-bleeped) if I don't try!
Will we die before then?
That'd be a minor sight
This world, encompassed by night
Well, the death toll's climbing new heights
And in this catastrophe
Staring and just holding on
You and me
Wouldn't rather live than die
But I try(try try)
Some look into the sky
For a guiding light
And answers to our lives
(all of them are lies)
But I stand all on my own
If there is a God
He hates us all
Well, we should've known
I cannot see the day
I don't think I can
Really, in this world so dark and gray
Well, still we will stand
Because I won't give in
I cannot see the day
When people no longer die
But I'll be (GD-bleeped) if I don't try!
(whisper)
Wouldn't rather live than die
But I try(try try)
Some look into the sky
For a guiding light
(repeat 3x)
Well, if the day won't come
We'll have to go to it
Or live through to it
Or die waiting

SOS!(Nobody Listening)


They make me wanna run from it
They make me wanna scream
It's too late
I've wasted my time screaming
Screaming for help into silence
Screaming for help vainly into the night
The night that I die
SOS!
I scream to the silence
Out loud, no one can hear me
Caught up in this madness, too blind to see
I really want to scream
Scream out for help
But it won't do a thing cuz I'm trapped in hell
Fear took over my senses, I lost control
Now they hear my screams tonight
Scream to the silence
Scream to the crowds
The crowds in your head
You're seeing the eyes of the beast
By morning you'll be dead
It's too late to scream
I attempt to control my fright
But they'll taste my blood tonight
SOS!
I scream to the silence
Out loud, no one can hear me
Caught up in this madness, too blind to see
I really want to scream
Scream out for help
But it won't do a thing cuz I'm trapped in hell
Fear took over my senses, I lost control
Now they hear my screams tonight
Scream to the silence
Scream to the deafened
Scream to the crowds
Scream to the absent
Scream to the dead ones
Scream to the live ones
No one listens
No one hears you
Save me God!(God!God!God!)
Scream all you want there's nothing you can say or do
Screeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam!
SOS!

One of my personal favorites.
Let It Bleed

You stand and watch
As they die
Stand and watch
Smile, and lie
You let them fall
They scream for help
But nobody listens
They're going to hell
Stare at the carnage
Scream as the blood drips
Cry out for help
But no one in the world hears
They leave you alone with all your greatest fears
They may hear you
They may see you
They won't help you
Just let it go
And let it bleed
You scream out
You shout
The world can see
But they won't help
They stand and they let
It
Bleed
You stand at the war front
Praying that the sun will never rise
For you don't want to see with your eyes
Proof what happened was real
Because you are so frightened
Of the pain you will feel

Just to break you string, here's a quickly whipped up one:

Once It Comes

Once it comes,
It fades away.
It seems big,
But really isn't.

It doesn't matter,
It's coming.
Death will visit me,
Soon in the chair.

The chair of volts,
Old sparky,
Yellow Mama,
It goes by many names.

It'll fry me,
And it'll kill me.
Maybe I deserve it,
But maybe not.

Just quick. Hope it's decent.

What'd you think of mine?
My favorite is Let It Bleed. It's so short yet deep, and flows so well.
Yours is pretty good. Kinda funny in a dark way:

Old sparky,
Yellow Mama,

Lol.
Wow I really am going a tad morbid. I'm laughing at nicknames for an electric chair. 0.o

Just a tad. They are funny though. They actually called them that.

I'm deeply morbid myself.

OH no! I have run out of pre-written morbid stuff. That means*gasp* I have to actually get off my lazy butt(can't blame me, everyone's lazy at 3 in the morning) and write!
But here is a spot where you can access a whole lot of my literature. Some of it swears too much to be PG-13. The poems are listed in categories:
Dark Omens
Into The Light
Asylum
Oh, wait! I think I found a song morbid enough for the thread! Prepare yourself!(and seriously, check out the link. I swear it's nothing bad)

My last pre-written morbid song.

(Don't Go) Into The Light

This could be
The final day
Of you and me
Till you're so far away
I should've tried
I should've died
Before letting this happen to you
Now, your life is due
Oh, no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hold on through the night
You cannot go into the light
People, they walk
They shop and they talk
They live their lives
They won't look any of us in the eyes
They may be carefree
They may not know
But then again, they might
And they might be able to read the pain in me
But the calm of you
You astound me, my love so true
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
But let me tell you a secret, my friend
This will be your end
And I can't be grateful
That they're still alive, like you can
All I can think about
Is that I'm gonna die inside
When I watch you
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
I'm not ready to watch you die
Not ready to die inside
I just have to try
To make everything right
And I swear to God
Your last day on Earth
Will be my best one
Since the beginning, your birth
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
I watch say goodbye to your family
Your mom and dad
You call them and say
"Please, don't cry
Don't be sad."
Then you turn to me and say
"I may not be ready
But, fear as I may
I won't let my death
Make my friends' and family's world gray
Like I said, please don't cry"
And despite your requests...
I felt a tear in my eye
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
I'll let myself go
I'll have fun, and be free
For this day on Earth
Is the last one for you and me (to be together on this Earth)
I better spend it right
But, what will be fun about life
Without my love?
My friends, they don't have to know
That this is the end of your life
But not the end of our love
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
I'm not ready to watch you die
Not ready to die inside
I just have to try
To make everything right
And I swear to God
Your last day on Earth
Will be your best one
Since the beginning, your birth
I must say goodbye
And then I'll have attempt to have fun
Because this day on Earth
Is your very last one
I can't let my fear, my pain
Spoil this day for you
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
We may not be ready
But you are brave, and you say:
"But nor are the soldiers
Nor are the victims
Of war
And of poverty
So this may be the final day for me
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
But what about them?"
But I won't cry
I'll stand proud
Because at least I know
And I have one more day
To make my life right(with you)
Before the end
When you enter the light
I'm not ready to watch you die
Not ready to die inside
I just have to try
To make everything right
And I swear to God
Your last day on Earth
Will be your best one
Since the beginning, your birth
I will make everything right
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
I'll save the women
And the men, and the children
All those victims
And all innocent deaths
From the same pain I feel
Is this the life meant
For our race?
Were we meant to live
Just to die?
No no no
We will live for so much more
None of us, ready to die
And yet
All of us do
It's unstoppable, eventually
So we must embrace
And then we must make our lives
Better, than the strife
Of everyday life
On this world
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light
Not ready to die inside
I just have to try
To make everything right
And I swear to God
Your last day on Earth
Will be your best one
Since the beginning, your birth
I could've seen tomorrow
But it was risking too much sorrow
I stayed in the dark about the day
The time, exactly when you waste away
I can't stop it
I will try to
And yet when it comes down
You always knew
This was unstoppable
Oh no no, please please please
I'm begging to you on my knees
You have to hang on through the night
You cannot go into the light

Meh. This one is really sub-par. Hate it, but I'm going to post it anyway.

Carl screamed again as the pain pulsed through him. In all the time he'd read the Bible, in all the time he'd heard the priest warn him of Hell and its burning pain and shrugged it off, he simply hadn't grasped Hell. And now that Lucifer had been set free on Earth, Earth became a model of Hell. And where was God? Who knew? He wasn't doing anything to help anyone. Carl screamed again as the flames licked hungrily at his flesh, sizzling and popping, flickering in the moonlight. Carl was forced to his knees, holding his head in his hands, due to the pain. And still it went on.

In a small lapse in the awful hellfire coursing through Earth, Carl plotted his escape. He didn't know where he would go; anywhere would be better than here. He paced back and forth, his horribly burned arms swinging to and fro. He was one of the few humans left alive after the initial takeover of Earth by the Devil. The others had been killed; fighting or they had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time when the Devil felt like killing. And Carl had an ingenious plan.

Stealthily running towards the space center, Carl slipped the astronaut suit on. He felt its cool touch soothe his burned skin, and sighed quietly. It seemed ages ago when the air was clean and free of smoke and ashes, and smelled of meadows and flowers instead of burning flesh and burning Earth. When he and his wife had rested in the meadow, laughing...
But this was no time for reminiscing, he reminded himself sharply. He had a duty to do. He clambered onto the rocket. He had not the slightest idea how to operate it, but had been an ace pilot in the war, and figured it couldn't be that different; as long as he was sitting in a cockpit, he could figure out the controls. Carl took the shift in his hands and pulled. He felt the rocket rising,and his heart and soul soared with it. He would escape! Suddenly, there was a rocking of the rocket. Lucifer had seen him. Soon he would be dragged back to Earth...and into the claws of the Devil. Carl gulped deeply. He gripped one of the shards of metal from the rockets. He drove it straight into his heart. Better that than face the Devil.
But watching as a ghost, Carl never could help but wonder. What would've happened if he hadn't quit, hadn't given up? Would he still have escaped? He would never know. He had quit, committed suicide, and there was no way to tell what could have been.

:C wall of text~

The first poem was very good, but I felt it dragged on a bit so it started to hurt my eyes *rubs head* ow...

The other ones I wouldn't quite say they're morbid, but they're definitely a good read!

A very direct reference to the death penalty and also soldiers.

Killswitch

I just can't do it anymore
I can't win the battle, I won't fight the war
I won't pull the trigger
I just can't do it
Killed so many
Now I think again...
It's not my decision
Who lives and who dies
The killswitch, isn't mine to flip
I can't end a life
I won't do it anymore
My conscience got the best of me
I wanna be free
I wanna let go
I don't want responsibility
For another death
Tens
Hundreds
Thousands
Dead
Not my choice anymore
I won't pull the killswitch
I won't drop the guillotine
I won't flip the switch
I won't light the match
I can't kill them, bitch
If I kill one more, I swear
My mind will go
I just don't have the authority
To play God, to use the killswitch
This is all so wrong
The killswitch, isn't mine to flip
I can't end a life
I won't do it anymore
My conscience got the best of me
I wanna be free
I wanna let go
I don't want responsibility
For another death
Tens
Hundreds
Thousands
Dead
Not my choice anymore
I won't pull the killswitch
Some don't realize
The good inside
The horror
Of what we've done
I won't kill anymore
I can't kill anymore

And in case you're wondering, no I didn't write that just now. I went digging in a different place and dug that up.
