Description:


right now i'm feeling quite evil, you know with all the metal i'm listening to nowadays, but i always hated writing about evil things, it has to be evil but a deep kind of evil, thats what i want, there has to be some meaning in it, not just i'll kill you type. so this is what i came up with.


Evil Twin



You’ve been waiting
You’ve been searching
For the solitude so faraway.

You’ve been seeing
You’ve been watching
Yourself morph into your evil twin.

When the lights turn off
You sit upright
In the middle of the night
Fearing what is to come
If you fall down
Deep in your sleep
Because horrors await
As chain reactions repeat
Inside when you forget the outside.

The angels of death
Move around the world
Silently in stealth
In the night, in the dark
You will seem to be
Thinking only of your dream
Because the change in you
Will not appear before you
Following the slipstream
Locking you in the room.

Want desires need
Need begets greed
Sow the seed
And you shall reap
Deep in your mind
You will soon find
What will it lead
As your black deeds
Stray behind
The stalls of truth.

Stealing your thoughts
From your inside
It is due to what
You leave alone to rot
Decaying your brain
Seen as a boon in a parched place
A smile on a gloomy face
But inside it eats you
Cause an idle mind is
The devil’s workshop.

Want desires need
Need begets greed
Sow the seed
And you shall reap
Deep in your mind
You will soon find
What will it lead
As your black deeds
Stray behind
The stalls of truth.

Split personality
When your mind goes numb
Blind imagination
Because of the invisible sun
Dual character
Don’t wait for me, go run!

Split open
Forgotten when you dream
When you see
What you’re not supposed to
Invoking the spirit within
To come and rule your mind
It’s your evil twin.

Want desires need
Need begets greed
Sow the seed
And you shall reap
Deep in your mind
You will soon find
What will it lead
As your black deeds
Stray behind
The stalls of truth.

Comments


  A rather longish piece of writing.
But that is stating the obvious.
I feel that the build up was rather sluggish.
And as I am not a great fan of longer poems you may want to take my comments with a grain of salt so to speak. If a longer piece is not tight enough and not moving quickly enough you might tend to lose the readers [no matter how great the talent or rendition] it's because most of us live in a fast paced reality.
One curious tidbit though is that each stanza can almost stand by themselves as individual short poems.... pleasantly surprising....

  hmm. i liked it. nice too see dark words have some deep meanings. lovely. this doesnt really seeem lyrical too me. just regular poetry. throughout the entire pieice you only went back to the title twice. liked it. dont like metal so i wouldnt know how this would go into the music part.

  Zu,
This was pretty good, and I can see it set to metal. Be sure that the lines fit the tune. It looks like you jammed a few to make them work instead of using meter, but it can work with rock music sometimes, (ie...if line 6 in the 1st verse has 12 syllables/feet. then line 5 svesr 2 should be the same.)

  When I first started reading this I thought it would be just another mediocre attempt, but when I finished it I think it's great...I think it's a little lengthy but that is propably because it is a lyric not a poem. Your choice of words is quite cmmendable too. Nice work.

  This is good, I was going to comment on the lenght, but it is good. Since it is lyrics, i guess it is supposed to be a little long. Im glad you decided to write about the dark things in life, sometimes, those are the best! ;) I would have to say that the lenght of the verses in the 3rd and 4th stanzas work, but not wth the rest of it. The rest seems to be shorter, and come out quicker. well that may just be me. This is a good piece. Nice work.

  Funny you should ask me to read this because I remember reading it before but for some bizarre reason didn't comment, sorry! Anyway, after a second read through I can say that these are some great metal lyrics, as per usual, and that I enjoyed reading them, there's not much else to add really, oh yeah, look for Nightmare, my next submission, coming soon to a page near you, lol. Rated 'R' for 'Retarded'.
