I lost my sight
In a world 
Of ephemeral light
Hiding a sea of glass
Which I willfully dived into
In the hopes to grab the stars
Reflected in those mirrors.
I lost my heart
In a fantasy
Of perfected eternity
Guising the struggles and pain
Which are wrought 
From such delusion
And ignorance
Of true hardened love.
I lost my soul
In a frozen hell
From which 
I've lost the right to leave.
My demons tie me down
And I hold them close
For they're the only things
Which bring me warmth.
And I live 
In this silent torture
Of my own selfish design
In the hopes 
These things I've lost
Will one day be returned to me.

This is extremely beautiful. I don't know how you come up with such rendering at 2 am xD !!! I already had it in my favourites since a long time but I fell on it by chance and god... it's just so inspiring. Especially this
"My demons tie me down
And I hold them close
For they're the only things
Which bring me warmth."
Is it alright if I use it on a drawing this inspired me to do ? And of course, I'll properly credit you, no worries about that. Pleaaaaaaaaaase é__è ??

Wow, this absolutelly beautiful and so well written, I almost cried while reading it. So heart-rending, so sad, but also very beautiful and emotional. It perfectly captures the feelings of a character in a story I am currently working on.

Absolutely beautiful... Totally my style ^_^ Dark, morbid topics like this inspire me, and surprisingly this poem expresses what seems a lot like my own philosophy when it says "I lost my heart in a fantasy of perfected eternity" my philosophy being that fantasies can be pieced together into a reality, your own reality, with careful choices. Although I might have interpreted it wrong, sorry if I did >.<
