WRITING . P R O M P T
What is it that goth kids are known for other than their sappy poetry? Take a moment, step back into time, channel your inner Edgar Allan Poe, and write us a tall tale of death and woe. Well, not really, but write either a short story or poem, reminiscent of an author such as Edgar Allan Poe.

You must include the following three things in your story:
1. a glass heart
2. a small herd of black cats
3. a broken bottle of ink


R U L E S
01: Creations must be posted in this thread or placed in your portfolio.
02: The entries must follow the HEX Terms and the A&G Forum Rules.
03: All work must be your own. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
04: If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in this thread.

Dark Thoughts

My thoughts are dark, then they're light, like morning breaking through the night.
Unblanced, unhinged; without respite.
Anxiety takes a hold of me; bad luck starts, and I see ,it like a small herd of black cats approaching me, the doom that settles in.
It's a battle inside my head, internal; no blood is shed. Though my eyes are seeing red; like a bottle of spilled ink that has spread.
I need to let go of the past and not let it shatter my heart of glass. Let the negative thoughts pass.
Bring the light, the positive breaking through the night.

Disclaimer: Context is that I have a friend who I was really worried about at the time (it's been edited to fit the theme). They're okay now. 😊 (A clowder is a group of cats by the way.)
I too, am okay. 😊

Are you alone? Ink black clowder tears breaking through their bottle in your own home?

Are you shaking? Sick to your stomach of what you've become.
It just wasn't enough this time, so you promise yourself that this time, this time is the last time.

But the pain inside is killing you, as shards of heart pierce through your skin, thinking "I've let myself down again!"

Can you hear me, screaming for your sanity?
Can you see me? I'm right by your side.
I'm gonna try something new for you. Let go and we'll fly, fly on broken wings, broken angel.

Are you afraid? Terrified this day could be your last?
The thoughts in your head eat you alive. The only release is the sweet ecstasy of imaginary numbness.
Yet, It's not enough, it's never enough to kill reality.

Can you hear me ,screaming for your sanity?
Can you see me? I'm right by your side.
I'm gonna try something new for you, so let go and we'll fly, fly on broken wings, broken angel.

If what is dead may never die, how can you kill what's dead inside?
You're not okay and that's clear to see, but...

Can you hear me ,screaming for your sanity?
Can you see me? I'm right by your side.
I'm gonna try something new for you, so we'll fly, fly on broken wings, broken angel. You're worth it to me.

I'm cringing so hard as I write this... 😂
Words cannot describe the cringe.
Gah.

***

My heart is of glass, fragile and cold, with a crack for each dark day I've seen
Rigid but brittle, deceptively clear, you can see all the shadows within
You're looking for blood, humanity's curse, but I've lost all that once made me human
My heart does still pump, but like nothing you've seen, with tendrils of blackness as blood
It spreads like a fire, the ink through my soul, from the shattered bottle of my pain
I can feel them still, their teeth and their claws, the pack of black cats of misfortune
Their growls in my throat, their teeth in my soul, their claws on the glass of my heart
They're tearing me still, and I never was strong, and still it is only the start

Cancels the cringing.

I try to write a poem everyday, so why not . This turned out.. darker than necessary.


Mother

Mother, we love, we love
With her heart of glass
Mother, beloved, beloved
With the weathered army flask
A box of kittens that she raised
Smiles that of knives
A box of kittens sit at her grave
Brandishing their scythes
The bottle of tears—black—that she had
We bury with her too
The broken one; we tuck away
The powder in her shoes
Mother Dear once was a woman
As they surely know
But they ripped her face and sewn her lips
And now she’s a dead crow
Crows, they live off the world’s scraps
Those scraps are made of snow
Once a woman, and barely livin’
Off rich men’s tears alone.
Yes, your Mother Dear, she was young
But then you lot came along
And what is beautiful, it turns to ash
When you feed it a weeping song.
