The pulsing pound within my head
The monsters underneath my bed
And all the things I never said

They leave me all alone

The whispers near me in the night
They're always wrong and never right
I note that they don't come with light

They never leave my side

Contradictions that I speak
As slowly my heart grows so weak
And my veins all bleed death's reek

Trust me I know nothing

Quiet now, they tie me down
In a pure white flowing gown
And on my head place bloodied crown

Yes I am their queen

I can't tell the things apart
The things that are real or in my heart
Because the world is all just gruesome art

Look at my lovely dark things

They follow closer, at my heel
And before me, used to kneel
And still do if I keep the deal

But blood is deadly poison

Away we go, away we slam
Another deed for us to damn
Another slaughtered bloody lamb

The dark things, no listen to-

To late, to late
We'll never stop at this rate
Not until our marked death date

What's happening to me, why can't I move

I try to back up, I try to back out,
See what all this is about
But now I can't swerve from this route

These aren't my darling dark things

These are the monsters from my head
The ones that used to haunt my bed
And now they take my blood to shed

Where are the lovely dark things?
Yep! Something about the madness in my head... is just so charming. Anywho, I'm really fine for all those who are asking right now. XD I promise, I'm actually a pretty light/bubbly person in real life. It's chill, people.

I love the rhyme scheme within this. You have brought it about quite well and it adds to the poem greatly.
And for someone who is light/bubbly you sure tapped into your dark side ;)

Thank you, I'm very glad you liked it! And thanks, I'd like to believe I have thoroughly explored my dark side.
