Poem: Limbus Infantium

Recommended Posts

Translucent garments are dragged by a devious hand

A face undergoes debridement, heaven’s therapy for the impure soldiers

A song of torment removes me from mother’s bosom.

The soulless jury stands above the cradle, unaffected by my hungry cries

Relying on guilty principles, I am enslaved by the fall of man

The basin overflows with dark water and vines of blood and tears of sadness bring me to hell.

Obligated to serve an angelic doctor, I extract the patient’s blasphemy with a silver needle

Immortal words are spoken through the lining of this white mask

Call out to the young children by breaking open the fountains of ooze and decay.

The sprouting of thorns brings leviathan closer to the rippling surface,

Shredding the malleable walls of clay with its infernal vertebrae

A superficial sky wavers, purifying the damned with a bounty of fire.

Unsealed with the end of a shrieking melody, the white maidens crawl out of their temples

Hideous deities in the shape of virgins and sirens,

They vomit legions of parasites with an upheaval of internal combustion.

The breaking of bones makes them drowsy and incoherent,

My sword of flesh and sin is unsheathes, rusty in this arena bathed in moonlight

The temples release their crawling infants, melancholic minions without love from their creator.

Wow. Very impressive, dark, almost lovecraftian. The tone is brilliant. I must say thats some of the best poetry ive read in a long time.

Thanks, I try my best to evoke a strong theme with dark imagery, as a matter of fact H.P Lovecraft is one of my favorite horror writers.

      Teen Titans Go! is a comic book series based on the 2003 animated TV series Teen Titans. It often extends from the show, expanding on plot lines the show introduced and adding new characters. The animated series itself is loosely based on the characters that starred in the popular 1980s comic The New Teen Titans. The series is completely different from the original comics which were written in the 1960s.
      The series was written by Joseph Torres, and Todd Nauck and Larry Stucker were the regular illustrators. The series was published by DC Comics.

      I don't remember when I wrote this, seems I didn't date it, but here's another poem from my teenage years.
       
      Who Am I?
      -----------------------------------------------------------
       
      What shall I be?
      My past is clouded,
      A mystery.
      Who am I,
      Without a memory,
      Faded and gone,
      Throughout the century.
      Who am I,
      What is my destiny?
      Who was I?
      And who shall I be?
      What is the mark,
      I'll leave on history?
      What was it in the past,
      And now, what will it be?
      So many asked questions,
      But with no reply.
      Now the past and future,
      a knot will tie.
      What has happened,
      Will be again.
      How can I be prepared?
      And what will I do then?

      Turn For the Worst
      -----------------------------------------------------------
       
      What cause's everything to go wrong
      I just cant seem to remember
      to remember when things took a turn
      a turn for the worst
      What is it within me that makes me so angry
      I can't even seem to do anything right
      It just brings me back to reality
      life isnt fair, life isnt always perfect
      I find myself at a fork in the road
      Will I make another mistake
      take the wrong road once more
      I dont think I could survive another failure
      I begin to take a road but reconsider
      I find myself answering my own questions
      Every time I think I have everything just right
      It all seems to come crashing down
      What is wrong with me
      is this some kind of curse
      I am sick, I am tired.. of living in this eternal hell
      The nightmares of doing another wrong
      They just wont stop
      I find myself at another dead end
      another wrong turn
      I have taken a turn for the worst once more.

      Never Ends
      -----------------------------------------------------------
       
      Funny and Ironic how the people that can afford things
      are the ones that get them for free
      Pathetic and Moronic how the people that claim to be tough
      always seem to flee

      The crowds that seem to pass me
      so very endlessly
      and no one seems to care
      about my misery

      Yet I smile at them
      and try to be happy
      look past all the bullshit
      as happy as can be

      But no one takes a step back
      Insults always sent
      why everyone's so heartless
      this cycle never ends

      Sad and so Frustrating how everyone I see
      pretend it's all alright and always try to be
      an image of perfection in everybody's eyes
      Yet they won't admit it's all fucking lies

      Sick and so Traumatic how the only person here
      that understands the world always lives in fear
      is the person that gets picked on everyday at school
      reasons are because they're just flat out uncool

      I can't take another word
      of the sanity I lack
      so just skip the small talk
      and stab me in the back

      I feel so fucking dead inside
      like If I had sold my soul
      I would've gladly done it
      if peace was in return

      But no one heeds my warnings
      or regrets what they've said
      Nothing's gonna change
      this cycle never ends

      the pain, the loss, the misery
      the death, the sickness, the agony...

      brother, sister hear me out
      what is all this shit about?
      I won't become a martyr
      for all the things you've done
      I stood up and fought alone
      while all you did was run

      It's all over now
      I've fought and I have lost
      No one really cares about
      the sentimental cost

      So wallow in your world of lies
      While someone plans about
      the demise of your entire life
      and how to take you out

      you can't escape the rage of those whose words they bend
      all you have to know is that the cycle never ends.

      I figured I may as well post this one here. I have posted all my past poems here. All I see people post now days though is stories involving forum members. This section is more than just stories and being the last poem I wrote, I thought what the heck? So here it is. The title is kind of corny thinking back on everything. Everlasting Love? Is there really such a thing? I use to believe so, but it seems like every day we drift further apart.
