Under the blackened moon. 
As I sit alone in silence,

Think about it

You cry and scream nobody seems to care
Nobody would even dare

I am Emo it's no game,

I cut myself to ease the pain,

but the scars you left in my heart will never heal.

Short Emo poem by Marissa Faries| Details |

No One Knows

No one knows how she envies

Those who live their dreams.

No one knows how her mind

Overflows with envy and sorrow.

No one knows how she truly feels

Out Of Breath

Other people sinks me in there words
So have you heard about that nerd?

Rain Fall

thunder rolls,
 and my hear soars. 
my love for you grows each time i get a new message.
 my eyes are bright, the rain falls. 

and i fall along side with it.

Short Emo poem by Mana R.| Details |


I'm writing.

I'm writing very fast.

There is no paper.

There is a hand.

There is no pen.

There is a knife.

I'm carving a story.

I'm carving my own story.

Short Emo poem by Caitlin Feely| Details |


The sky is black as the night when the stars do not show,
Black as the feathers of a somber crow.
Black as coal when the firelight dies,
Black as life dying from a sick one's eyes.

Short Emo poem by Jim Cross| Details |

mystery guest

desire sans obligation

inspires a vivid imagination,

imagination sans desire

lies dormant against my will,

awakening sans vision

empowers my senses,

and i, i ascend to know you -

Short Emo poem by Zak Blixrud| Details |

it hurts

all these things inside of me want to burst out

i hold them in constantly


from inside


until something has to get let out

i dont have a choice

Short Emo poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details |

Wasted Thoughts

I spend mindless weekends 
Trying to make mends 
To a future thats already gone 
Tell me, where did it all go wrong 

I spend weekdays 
on pretence 
leave my soul to defend 
cause the mind will never mend 
This will never end 

Short Emo poem by James Kelley| Details |

Chianti Dreams

I wrote my dreams on the back of a paper bag.

Stuffed them down inside an empty bottle of Chianti 

and threw it into the ocean.

The tide rolled it right back to me,

with words as wet as my eyes.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |


Lies and mistakes 
Is the only way
to die in fear for your heart to ache
Blood covered your fate
How dare you change your fate this way

Days past by
Times flies
Time dies..
Drugs and hugs
kills you all
Don't try to fake the smile of love

Short Emo poem by kennith stomps| Details |

Pill after Pill

Pill after pill
The pain still remains,
Night after night
Glued to this haze 
thinking of you
emotions spread
love, hate, everything between
covered in shade
after slowly going insane
this blade,
allows emotions to escape through my veins.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

Behind My Shadows

You see me so cheerful
But behind the screen
I'm full of tears
How would i bare my face just for a hiding place
As days goes by
My life stays behind
I'm still here
BUt i'm nowhere to be found                            
I'm bound to be dragged down

Short Emo poem by Jessica Crudup| Details |

Inside The Young Emo Heart

Black tears

Dark years

Many fears

No cheers

I am sad

I am mad

Things are bad

Haters are glad

Cold nights I wept

Hoping secrets were kept

The wind often called

But I always stalled

So depressingly here I lay

So ready to pass away.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |


When will they notice me?
I'm sitting here all alone in the rain
I'm all wet
I'm all sad
I looked up the dark sky
I rise up with all my might
My hands touched the bars
Than another
Soon my legs jumped me off
Will they notice me now?
Now that i'm gone?

Short Emo poem by Gary Bovett| Details |

I may be an Emo

I may be an Emo
 Although I've never been in to self harm
 Other than eating and drinking a little too much on occasions

 When I was 18
 A bunch of my friends ambushed me
 Put makeup all over my face
 Planted the seed 
 So a late starter
 Emo at 53

Short Emo poem by jigyasa makkar| Details |

Run away

Not that I would 

Actually run away. 

Not that I would 

Even think that way. 

But knowing that I can

If I need to be

Having just the liberty

Essentially to be free,

Makes my heart wonder

Where I would go?

Just to stay sane now

I really need to know.

Short Emo poem by Morgan Jay| Details |

The Blood

I cut to see the blood.
To bring colour to my life.
Because life has turned so dull and gray...
Just grays and blacks and whites... 

I cut to see the blood. 
To remind me that I'm still alive. 
I forget my body is still here...
because my soul has long since died.

Short Emo poem by Samuel Durant| Details |

Human Taxidermy

I'd like to be stuffed when I die 


Then, when I say I feel hollow 


and soft 


and dead, 


I won't be some emo tw*t 


crying about nothing. 


It'll be true. 


I'll be the scarecrow, 


chillin' in the corner 


of my moms bedroom.

Short Emo poem by Hope Diamond| Details |

My Wrists

A story is told 
Just by the look of it
You see it starts to unfold 
It's hard to take in just a bit

So many memories
I take them all with me
I pull at my sleeves
So that no one see

I don't want to hurt anyone
Even when they've hurt me
I'm fragile
Yet they still break me

Short Emo poem by Kenny Loy| Details |

Beneath that smile

I hide and cry silently

Beneath the smile I show

Time and space I give willingly

The pain continues to grow

Walking this path lonely

Hopes, faith and love as my 


I hope and pray solemnly

With promises made to follow

As long as you are happy

That's all I need to know

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

Dancing With Heartless Memories

Rain, rain fall all day
Ill just be here regretting my fate

Step 1 to 5 for more to come
I'm just here dancing with the devil all day long
With some crazy song
But i'm all done here
There no reason to fear

Is all on me
I'm the one that dancing with the devil here, not you at least... 

Short Emo poem by Emilee Linthacum| Details |

My Knife

Black eyes.

Black heart.

The pain hits me like a dart.

I'm lying on the floor.

I can't handle this pain anymore.

I take the blade.

I press it to my skin.

I know its a sin,

But this pain will never end.

My mind is empty.

I'm filled with misery.

I hate my life,

But I love this knife.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

Blind in my Sight

As I looked out my window
Nobody was there
Is no mystery I think I just disappeared

I walked towards the creek
As I stood there, I saw a cascade
It was a passage to a cave
A place where I can change my fate

As I seek for a destination
To lead me free
Nobody come to help as I thought it will be

Short Emo poem by Brock Gamble| Details |

Gothic Kids

Were basically the muscle of the emo kids we dont cut we fight we dont cry we just live and die, hardcore music tht you cant understand was always our master plan, dancing in the dark youll soon see the spark, after the flaming heart we shall never depart, through your eyes i see nothing but glee

Short Emo poem by DaQuan Bowrin| Details |

Darkness Descends

The night falls with

a silent sigh,

Soulless are we.

The salvation for

which you pray,

Flares once, then


Swept away by a

velvet ebony


All hope must surely


Your soul thrives no


How could you tear

us asunder?

Lost souls surround

us, crying,

We have lost our


Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |


People judge from their hearts
I'm telling you, she not who she was from the start
I opened my eyes
I had a box of stares
Nobody would even care
People walked by as if i wasn't there
Push and kill all the way through
Slices and dices on my skin as a grew
As i got pushed,
My soul just wanted to die behind that bush

Short Emo poem by Ag Ki| Details |


If I hold on to strings,
That tend to slip away,
Does that mean I love things,
That I know will never stay?
If I hang on to a love, 
that just holds me down,
Does that mean that my wings,
Wont get me off the ground?
If I hold on to lies,
That I only half believe,
When I look in your eyes,
Will you look back at me?

Short Emo poem by Mike Conway| Details |

Dribble A Drop

Let it trickle
Dribble a drop
From the Tip
Of the Top
Till it sits
on the rocks
a little sip
then it flops
another is sick
Hit up Doc
here's another hit
Hear it pop
Pills will slit
Big willed thoughts
Like a wrist
Do not watch
the skin split
Like gymnasts' crotch 
Sorry a bit
Going for shock
Not even wit
Just mental block

Short Emo poem by alexis olmstead| Details |

The Lost Emo Girl

There she goes,

The one with the short hair-

Dyed black.

Some call her goth-

But she's emo.

Lost in this world full of happiness,

All she can find is her own heart of hate.

Holding her candle,

Up to her face,

Crying her tears.

Tears of blood that she's shed all these years,

Just a lost Emo girl

Looking for Love.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

Dead Smiles

Melt the love
Melt the smile
Melt the heart within

If your happy most time,
Ill turn it upside down
I envy people who smiles,laugh,giggles with other's

All i have is my soul deep inside
Nothing else....
My smile betrayed me long time ago
This is the end of my fate
Dont try to change my hatred against others that I had made

Sorry For The First Fight 2013

Nervous in my sleep
Passed the year with boiling heart
Pushed down the anger

Hide in detention
Feel moody in the morning
I know you are mad

Feel sorry to hear
The things you try not to say
But slipped already

We drown on emo
But hurry stood on our sane
Forgave each other

I'm glad it was you
Person who chased on my days
The love of my life

Short Emo poem by Leigh Nickolyn| Details |



Hiding under this mask is a beautiful young girl,

Hiding her scars,

Hiding her pain,

She will never reveal.

Everyone teases her,

Calling her 'emo' and 'weird'

When all she wants is someone to understand her,

Someone to be there for her.

Hiding as she passes everyone,

No one can see her beautiful face

Or her horrid scars.

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

Day One

Day one
Next to come
I remember this day like a house of fun
This was the day when I changed
Everything around me still stood the same
Everything was a shame

soon enough they judged me by the way i looked 
Emo,scene,death or dark
I'm still me
Emo is what I might be
But please don't judge me
This is what been haunting me forever for everyone to see

Short Emo poem by Skyler Swan| Details |

The Path is Blocked

I was on a trail
I betrayed things behind me
I went ahead,
Thinking i could change my faith and leave my past
Times were tough as I took this path
There no going back
I think there a storm behind my back

I tried not looking what a mess i'v done
Now that I'm gone,
I could start a new life
A new day
A new me
But the past cant be changed in my memories

Short Emo poem by Caryl-Anne ok| Details |


The monsters came back, 

They taunted her every night,

Telling her absurd things.

They made her think.

They whispered in her ear 

Trying to lead her to do 


She had tried so hard to 


This was a constant battle 

Between her and the wicked.

And yet again,

She was left with nothing

In a dark room

Because the monsters won.

Short Emo poem by Leigh Nickolyn| Details |



I am not

What you call "emo",

Black is what I always wear

To cover my past,

Music blaring in my ears

Keeps the world out,

Hair in my face

Stops the images appearing.

My dark thoughts

Always appear on paper,

Never meant for anyone to see

So I am not humiliated,

Don't make fun of me

Or how I feel,

I am a regular person

Not a freak.

Short Emo poem by Gwendolyn Coffey| Details |


Sew my lips shut,
Never to speak again.
Every word I've ever said
Always comes out wrong.
I hear the screaming in my head.
All becoming too much.
Please will you all be quiet.
Just for a little while.
Walk away from the world.
Leave it all behind.
Don't look back,
Never turn around.
Forget the past,
And the future
Die in the present
Never to be remembered
