dark-riverDark River

This Dark River runs through me

It will not go away

It Latches to Displeasures…

Troubles and Dismay

This Dark River casts me out…

From Happiness, Pleasures, Love

But mostly when I Sleep…

This Dark River pushes and shoves

The disappointments we Feel are no more constant than the rain…darkriver10

Which passes through, it will not stay

The Loneliness that comes…

Deep within the night

Disappears with morning…

Sunrise’s First Light

Mortality’s not an easy thing, when taken all at once…

Best hold things closely in your Heart

Than watch them Fade away

This Dark River sometimes reaches my neck…

dark-river-wallpapers_31271_1280x800Clinches its Fists

Threatens my Breaths…

But like the tides

Of Ocean Filled Skies…

It pulls away

Leaving Sand Plucked Shells of life…

Filling jars of Hope, Joy and Beauty throughout the Day

The Midnight Hour has come…

And gone

I Tire of this Song for One

They say Love will surely come…

Let it be while I am young

My Reflection… It starts to Fade

My Tears have Dried…

Almost A Year

My Cries Skybound…

I Hope you hear…

Uncertain Future…

Is what I Fear

Is there Enough of Me Left

Someone to Love

After all the Rest

I Tire of being alone

So much Love

Without a Home

My Darkened Hair…

And Green Eyes Fade

My Hands still soft

My Soul Turns Grey


Cries Unheard

Cries Unheard

This Black Planet…

This… Shattered Moon

Whose Beams of Broken Moonlight

Fall in Great Dropplets

Like Some Misplaced Yellow Light…

Splashing Upon the Surface…

And We Mortals But Try Our Best…

To Salvage its Sacredness…

To No Avail

Instead we are Cast Away From this Trivial Life…

Outcast from Ourselves…

Destined to Orbit This Glorious Light…

While Above Us This Cracked Sphere of Random Misfortune…

And… Good Fortune

Dictates Our Everlasting Gloom…

Our… Misguided Truthes

Our Lonely… Wrecked Hearts

Be Not so unkind

We are all… We Have

DarkJade Presents – Evanescence

Posted in Editorial, Entertainment, Evanescense, Inspiration, Music, Rock N Roll, Videos with tags on February 11, 2012 by darkjade68


Let me start by saying, there’s something very special about this girl to the left… Amy Lee, what can I say, but thank you… I’ve always loved Evanescence but during this most recent Break Up that I went through, I found myself Gravitated back to Evanescence, and Amy Lee…

As I’m sure many of you are aware, if you’ve read some of my August through December Poems or Musical Posts… As I’ve used several of Their/Her Pieces within them.

You could almost say it was her Angelic Voice that helped to lead me back into the Light that is The Now, and The Future… Beyond my Recent Pain…

As Indeed I listened to many, many, many of their/her songs during the course of Writing Most of the Poetry in this Blog… So… Thank you Amy Lee… And thank you Evanescence…

On With The Post…

I Thought I’d start out with a 2 Part Interview I just came across, about their Most Recent Album, Self Titled “Evanescence”.


Part 1

Part 2

Mozart, Depeche Mode and Michael Jackson… No Wonder I Love This Girl

Now for Some Tunes

My Heart Is Broken

Everybody’s Fool

Bring Me To Life

Anywhere (I Can’t Tell You How Many Times I Listened To This Last Fall/Winter… I Had Never Heard It)


Taking Over Me



Breathe No More

I’ve been looking in the mirror for so long
That I’ve come to believe my soul’s on the other side
Oh, the little pieces falling, shatter
Shards of me too sharp to put back together
Too small to matter but big enough to cut me
Into so many little pieces if I try to touch her

And I bleed, I bleed
And I breathe, I breathe no more

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child
Lie to me, convince me that I’ve been sick forever
And all of this will make sense when I get better
I know the difference between myself and my reflection
I just can’t help but to wonder which of us do you love

So I bleed, I bleed
And I breathe, I breathe now
Bleed, I bleed and I breathe
I breathe, I breathe, I breathe no more

And Probably My Favorite Evanescence Song…

My Last Breath… I Simply Can’t Believe These Lyrics

Or At Least The Song with My Favorite Lyrics…

I’ll miss the winter.
A world of fragile things.
Look for me in the white forest
Hiding in a hollow tree (Come find me)
I know you hear me.
I can taste it in your tears!

Thanks For Reading/Listening


DarkJade – After Midnight

Posted in Dreams, Entertainment, Evanescense, Inspiration, Life, Love, Music with tags , , on January 8, 2012 by darkjade68

When Sleep Doesn’t come…

A Flare for the Dramtic


Other People Like to sing your song…

This Next, and Last one is a bit more Meaningful to me… Matters of the Heart lead me to a lot of Evanescence Listening Last yearAs was Evident, in the use of many of their songs along side some of my Poetry…

But I have to say… I was Glad that they were there for me to Return to, as I hadn’t really listened to them for several years… And Amy Lee and I spent many a Night Together, Healing My Heart

So Thank you Evanescence… And Thank You Amy Lee…

Even a Poet, sometimes needs a Poet


Thanks for Listening/Reading




DarkJade Back Thought – Chillen in the Sub-Mind

Posted in Editorial, Evanescense, Inspiration, Music, Rock N Roll, Videos with tags , , on October 17, 2011 by darkjade68

“Back Thought – Chillen in the Sub-Mind”

A Musical Self-Exploration

Brought To You By DarkJade

Music Takes you somewhere Else… Sometimes reaching a place you might call “The Sub-Mind”… Home and Breeding Ground for the Back Thoughts… Or splintered Makings of the Mind

Come with me as I take you to the Realm of the Back Thoughts… The Sub-Mind of your Consciousness

Some Tunes and Videos that might Help You get there


Interesting as I’ve often wondered how the four of them (The Black Eyed Peas) came together, as each of them is so different… I hadn’t seen that Video, but I feel it is an accurate expression of four completely different entities coming together to form a singular thing

Inside (Kick Back and take this one in, it’s a good 10minutes long)

Enigma has always been awesome… And, I believe, they “get it”, spiritually speaking

Stay a While

I’ve used this Song in another Piece… But I just love it… Amy and Ben are also a case of Souls coming together, making something Beautiful, and in their case continuing in separate directions.

I sense it’s time to return you back to the Surface, and so take the sleeve of my shirt, and we shall Ascend

Rise to Light (Just Close your Eyes and Listen to this one, it shall return you to the Light, and the Briskness of the Skies Cool Voice)

Thanks for Listening

Play This While Reading…


The Man Sits…

His Hands Open In Front of him

Disbelief his Only Friend

He Looks to More

“Why God… Why…”

He Pleas…

Visions of the Night Before…

Visions of his Life Before

But there is No Light

But that of the Blood Red Stain Glass

Of the Cathedral in his Head…

He Places his Hands in his Face

Tears Lace His Palms…

Tears of a Man Whose Heart

Has Done the Unkind

The Unthinkable…

When Six Images Suddenly Appear

All Wearing Dark Red Robes…

Hoods Drawn

They Come to him…

They Come For Him

When No One Else Will

“Leave Me!!” He Screams

“Leave Me” He whispers

“But We Can’t…” They Say

“And You Know Why…”

I Wake Up…

Cold Sweat

Bright Eyes

Conscious Clear

And Yet I Bleed

Sweet Embrace

Posted in Evanescense, Love, Poem, Poetry, Scribblings, Writing with tags , , , on September 5, 2011 by darkjade68

~Sweet Embrace~

If not you… Than Who

If Not Now… Then When

I Run Across the Vacant Room, Arms Extended…

My Movement becomes slower and slower

My Eyes Wide Open, and yet… I can not see

Robbed Again of All that is Glorious

Longing… Oh so Longing

The Wall Comes forward… The Blackness

I slide and cannot stop

My Eyes Open again…

This Time My Self… My Child

Tugs at my Much Too Long Sleeves…

Calling Me… beckoning

Her Eyes Tell me… Her Eye’s Bleed

Please she says… please

As I turn to her… My head shaking…

The Rain has fallen

Black Tears from mine Eyes



watch and or just listen… and if you have someone that you love, watch/listen together

A Grip on the Darkness

Posted in Evanescense, Inspiration, Poem, Poetry, Scribblings, Writing with tags , , , on September 3, 2011 by darkjade68

play while reading…

~A Grip on the Darkness~

Alone… Always


These Dark Purple Lights makes Not Fair Company…

Come in… The Thought is Warm

But the Means… Are Not

These Translucent Hopes… of Glimmering Light

But Memories of some Greater Thing… Some Normal Thing

The Winds of Time Cast a Ghastly Glow

On what you Hope Will Be… These Figments… These

…untouchable Integer Components of Unknowns

The Air is full of what isn’t Really There

And You are Grasping at what you only Hope is True…

But wait… You are not Breathing

Breathe… In New Hope

Breathe Out the Strength you know you Hold

Expand Beyond what you know, and think is Possible

Do it now…

…do not wait

You Are Home
