Empty Eyed Knight
Got to stay awake
If I sleep the Kingdom falls
Empty eyed Knight
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 1 2
Over At Last
All the things said
Were lies.
Heartless and cruel,
Depraved and painful.
All the hopes believed
Were dashed.
Shattered on the jagged rocks of humanity,
Drowned in the now tainted sea of love.
All the dreams hallucinated
Now become nightmares bearing tears.
Evil thoughts,
Sent from an evil hell-bitch.
All the love sonnets written
Now burn in the fire of hatred.
Smouldering darkly
The acrid black smoke suffocating me to eternal sleep.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 1 6
There Is No Grey
I'm not the good guy.
I have no shining white stallion.
When I ride to war,
I ride a nightmare horse the colour of the storm
With blazing hazel eyes like starfall.
And when I ride to war,
No weeping maidens wave in my wake
Only demons leering evilly from the other side of the River.

No More Life
No life.
Even the sheep do not move.
Yet still, I hear screams on the breeze.
I stand alone
In the solace I sought.
Alone, for all others have died.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 2 10
The Ocean
I'm so lonely
Out here on an ocean of agony,
Twisted apparitions of sharks rip and tear my flesh
As I follow the undeniable current,
Ever so slowly,
Down the waterfall,
Descending into the abyss.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 0 9
The Dead Month
Crippled words roll like an October sun
Across the fraying fringes of my mind.
A feather floats from on high,
Butterfly white in the sharp cascading sunlight.
Not so far back in time
The rain howls around me,
Yet now in this dark sun,
Its soothing touch would be the sweetest kiss.
The ripples of memories fade
As the Lady of the Lake's price is paid.
My thoughts fly away like a marvellous dove
Freed from its cage at last.
I look around as mankind dawns,
Such a beautiful apocalypse.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 1 3
Where Heart Reigns Not
Dark crests of memories assault my beachhead frontier.
These immortal crusaders will not be shot down,
They stand proud,
Slowly venturing into my lands
Bearing their cargo of painful visions.
Across my once green deserts they travel,
And through my cold streets where hope once dwelled.
These dark and shadowed warriors march into my city centre,
They take hostages and raze buildings as they go.
Then they open the chest of the damned and disappear
Into the night they have created in my mind.
And from the chest comes the screams of agony,
Heralding the return of things I never wished to feel or think of again.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 0 12
Tear of Blood
Cry a single tear of blood for the dead,
But do not pity them -
For they walk in a paradise of gold and silver sands,
Where love is eternal.

Barbed by LeifHawk Barbed :iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 2 10
Absolved by death
The forgotten hero of life.
Sometimes, evil must win
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 1 17
Grey Death
The sky is heavy,
Filled with hate and grey death.
Will it fall on me?

All I See by LeifHawk All I See :iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 1 9
Animosity Rules
How can I carry on like this
When I have lost my faith in humanity?
How can I gaze upon the architecture of our cities
And be awestruck by the power of civilization,
When filth like rapists and murderers walk our streets?
How can I dream of peace of nations,
When we cannot even have peace amongst neighbours.
Why has humanity fallen like this?
Did the serpent really intend this?
Did that bite of the apple really breed the evil which now
Lives inside the darker side of humanity,
Revealing its face in a masque of hatred.
Animosity rules.
Civilisation down the drain.
Do they not care for life?
How can these people live and walk and breathe our air,
At the same time eyeing up victims?
I fear what we become,
For we are no longer the same mortals who grazed in Eden.
Are they demons from the pits of hell
Stalking us mortals?
No, they are mortals themselves,
And that is what pains me,
To know that humanity can hate itself so.
:iconleifhawk:LeifHawk 0 9
This pain,
It grows upon my soul
Like a black nymph from Hades' realm
Gnawing away at the rotten carcasses it is thrown.
Bloodshed is my song,
The cries of the damned, my symphony,
Whilst the echoing tragedy of mortal loss
Becomes my chorus.
I have seen the shadows upon the wall move.
I know that someone somewhere is watching me,
Orchestrating my finale with utmost precision.
Tuning my demise.
But I still hold the baton
And the demons play to my tune for now,
So let those shadows watch
Maybe they will learn something.

Requiem V.1
What more am I than a living requiem to the deceased?
What further purpose can I have beyond their graves?
Why do I exist only in their memory?
This is what I am.  A requiem to their dreams.
Fallen.  Beaten.  Torn.
I have no true self anymore.
I have lost all I once was
and live only as a tribute to the dreams of the dead.
This is what I have become,
the sad horrible beauty.
The pain that was never mine
still haunts me,
their deaths still haunt me.
The only life I have is this.
To live...because I must.
Because living is all I know.
This casual existance...
is perhapse all I can ever have.
Still, I know that
wether I live or die makes no great difference.
Why do I take comfort in that fact?
Why does it comfort me that no one remains
to mourn me when I too fall?
Even memories die...
we fade with time.
into the dim darkness,
the color grey.
All I see is grey.
No feeling remains.
Nothing but the emptyness of the dead.
No more than the cold of the grave.

I could fly once
When I was weak
But I still saw everything
And remembered,
I was wise and old
But still aware
I was loved once
A hasty relationship
The product of 'moving in combat'
We said our good-byes,
We were lovers and fighters,
But still innocent
I was smart once
I crept low and watched
Gaining knowledge
I couldn't bear the death in the end,
And I thought as I sobbed,
I'm still strong

Until I
I dont know what you're expecting
I don't know what you wanted to be.
Mentally rejecting
all the deeper parts of me...
look beneath the surface
hide in fear from what you find.
Fallen, lacking purpose,
Im so out of my mind.
And I know
that sometimes it feels so different.
And you show
that sometimes its just so fake...
so alone,
drowning in my unfufillment...
friend or foe?
What difference does it make?
Do you see me clearly,
do you look behind my eyes?
Memories held deerly...
hidden beyond empty lies?
Do you know why I hide?
To save myself from the pain...
Shove my weakness aside
with my heart, quietly lain.
And I know
that sometimes it feels so different.
And you show
that sometimes its just so fake...
so alone,
drowning in my unfufillment...
friend or foe?
What difference does it make?
Lucid appiritions,
I dread falling into dreames.
Knowing the suspicions
in my subconcious run deep.
At my story's ending
Im afraid to I find myself.
Ever repremending,
you've never offered to help...

Dream Yourself Awake.
In a half-concious state
I remain.
Falling under the ice.
Drifting in the frozen world
half awake
I know I must be dreaming.
But what is there to wake up to?
I sink further into my dreams
drifting beneath the ice
as I rest my weary soul.
My world of limbo.
So sad,
but not quite hell.
Not yet.
It's missing something.
Pain. Torment.
And I could smell the blood
right through the wall.
So metallic.
You always were the monster
of the two of us.
Bleeding her dry
just for the fun of it.
Make her scream.
Why do you torture her so?
We get paid either way...
And I could taste her fear
right through the walls.
I sink under the ice,
the current pulling me down.
Nowhere left to go
caught in the undertow.
How many others have perished like this?
And yet I feel nothing.
I know I must be dreaming.
I am caught in a dream which I cannot awaken from.
And you could taste my screams a mile away
and I'm so glad you can't read my mind
as he forced his will upon me.
His slave in body and mind.

Dying to live
What is it worth?
I keep up the fight
Hard as i try
I cannot win
it isn't supposed to be like this
It should get better
it isn't
I am dying to live
I reamain alone
surounded by friends
but i know you don't see
you can't see
I would let you
I look ok
i sound fine
I am dying to live
why wont the sun come out
The night takes me complealy
Trapped in a dark abyss of pain
but this isn't me
I am above this
I keep my emo thoughts
i don't want to kill me
but i want to die
I am dying to live
Forget your pity
save your heart
i am not worth your tears
I am not worth an effort
I keep up this fight
not knowing why
I don't care the price
I am dying to live
I wont complain any more
Maybe better for you if i go
I love you too much to hurt you
yet here i am, causeing you pain
I don't want to go
but it my be for the best
I cannot leave you
I am dying to live

Got tagged by my good friend Ron1649 :iconron1649:

"List 10 things about your art and post it in your journal. Then pick six other deviants to do the same."

Here we go

1. Many poems have a fantasy theme.

2. My writing usually contains dark undertones.

3. First joined DA to show my TerraGen works, but when I realised that there were people on DA who were interested in reading my writings, I began to post them too.

4. My prose very rarely gets put on DA because I am too critical of myself, or over protective of my work.

5. I try to stay away from 'emo' poetry, but sometimes some feelings slip in.

6. I always have music on when I write, only pause it when I come to do some hardcore editing.

7. I like to mess about in Photoshop, but don't normally save whatever I come up with.

8. I love being asked to write about stuff, name a word, or a theme, and I'll have a go :)

9. I don't consider myself a good writer, just someone who writes for fun and to sooth his mind.

10. One day I'd love to write something good.

I'm gonna tag: MoCaW :iconmocaw: nightmarephynix :iconnightmarephynix: AlethiaMS  :iconalethiams: starsdie :iconstarsdie: saffyre-onyx :icontheaatherea: and of course anyone else reading that wants to have a go :)

:star: Info

My alias is Leif, i enjoy writing, poetry, literature, art, gaming, etc. I'm not much of an artist myself, although I enjoy messing about with Terragen and Photoshop occasionally, and some of the stuff i end up with isn't too bad I guess.

I like rock music, such as Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, Demons and Wizards, Judas Priest, and many many more bands like that.
