View Full Version : Venom

Well, after Hevyd had asked me many times in the past to register, I did. And since I see these forums have an artist's haven, I think I'll spend a lot of time in this section.

This is a... well, there's no better way to describe this other than "thought"... that I had place on pap... pixels. Typed, never written. I titled it, like most the works I do, with a word that best sums it up - Venom.


A poisonous feeling of discontent makes its course through my veins. A dark cloud moves slowly overhead, bringing a shadow upon the world. My body, mind, and soul is going numb with the pain of loss. My head is spinning from the speed at which my hopes, dreams, and motivation are deteriorating. A raging fire leaves nothing but ash in its wake, and eventually even the strongest cinders burn out without a sound. Riches to ruins, fires to ashes, dreams to insomnia, it all shows that nothing is infallible. Nothing that was put on the soil of the decaying garden of our home is perfect.

I am blind. There is so much I've missed and so much I cannot see. The shadows of despair and hopelessness have driven the eyes away. The dirt is now rich and fertile with the blood of our brethren. Only the innocent bleed while the rest run free, not even to do so much as to shed a tear of grief or pity. Dementia and paranoia have kept the eyes alive, but rapidly corrode the mind, leaving nothing but an unhallowed shell of what was once human.

The skies are grey now from the rising smoke. Ruins, all of it turns to ruin. No wall stands impenetrable. Stone walls collapse just as quickly as any other. Senses of safeness and security are forgotten and abandoned, and dreamless nights once again creep upon us. The awakened one stands, and though the eyes may still seem open, one cannot see nor feel. Frightened tears with terrorized cries leak down over the cheeks of solitude. Tears turn crimson with wasted breath and blood. Sleepless are the nights of gullability and eventual disbelief.

We have been awakened; our eyes forced open. We will never know the comfort of self-control. Constantly a feeling of uselessness rules us. It cannot be fought or expelled from the tainted heart for its power is too strong. It is nothing but a plague, unable to be cured. The eyelids never shut and the tears never stop.

We may never sleep again.

No replies on mine. Such a disappointment. Guess I'm not popular enough.

This forum is very unpopular.

Also, our lurker:poster population is ridiculous.

My favorite threads have to be the less populated.

Wow, that's all I can really say, it's truely amazing... and I'm terribly sorry for the amount of time that it took me to respond, i read it very soon after you put it up, however i forgot to comment on it. Anyway it is truely amazing what a group of people who have mostly met through video games are capable of puting out into the world when given the chance. With people like you helping it along, hopefully we can get this left behind section rolling. I really did begin to hurt inside as i read this, amazing what a physical feeling can be achieved with the right words applied. :)
