A Town Called Suicide pt. 1

welcome to a town called Suicide
where broken dreams
come to die
where men shed a tear
but they never cry
where hope is seen
but it's all a lie
this town shall be the end of the road
for you and I

welcome to a town called Suicide
this town is filled
with shadowed halls
broken steeples
and bloody falls
darkened corners
end every road
while demons' shadows
grace every abode
from the sky
falls a blackened rain
while more people come
to end their pain

welcome to a town called Suicide
where broken people
come to die
where everyone sheds a tear
but they never cry
where life is seen
but it's all a lie
this town is the end of the road
for both you and I

    You're dark, and I love the depth in which this blackness is expressed in your poem, a fantastic read. You should check out some of my poems, possibly equally as dark as this... different genre though, lol Thanks, Conor
