Praise

Hell belches out more black-hearted ballads
                     than the accord of heaven that releases
                 only the innocent and wafting
                        lofty dreamings of a population 
               unversed in the ways of emotion. 

      They simper and insipidly bow and release
                delicate praises to the air as perfume... oh joyful
       white roses. Sweetly sing with your monotonous harpischords.

Not we.

           We are the fire in the blackest midnight...
              the mud that births monsoons of a terrible beauty.
        We tremble lest our own fire overtake us, we are the torrents
                  that pain your face with every gleefull beat.

               We are the dreamers of dreams.

     We are lovers, burning holes in sheets of purity and 
                invincible morality... we scream and shiver to our toes...
         oh haunting electricity.

          We are intense anger... the fury of emperors untold... 
     we shatter our enemies into the oblivion they beg for mercy
             fists bulging, contorted eyes stinging from the battle. 

         We are howls of bitter triumph, the sweet partakers of the
                lost cause. We are brazen to the thought. 

        We are the aroma of sadness that arises from the blackest pit, 
                                we are the oppression that snuffs out the candle. 
                     We praise from the very depths of our cavernous abyss
            our own masochistic knowledge... the fiery knowledge that burns us
                          as we consume ourselves.

    "we are the fire in the blackest midnight" my favourite line, thanks for all your comments bro =], this poem is great, the last line "as we consume ourselves" is a perfect finisher.
