The Nightmare of The Soulless Sea"The Nightmare of The Soulless Sea"The Nightmare of The Soulless Sea by Larathain
Desperation to vexes true
Serenity sought within your view
But no more, you've tossed your dreams
Silent and cold, the nightmare deems
Souls that slumber in darkest hues
Shadows scratch their dreams undo
In hours wake, the nightmare calls
Hours staring at the walls
Mounting stones of nothing felt
That ever-winter with no melt
Forgetting all the truths you knew
Your nightmare trudge without a view
Stole your heart, the Lightless sin
Purged your soul of Light within
Concede to darkness, the seep and hold
The nightmare cage of dark and cold
Weeks you think, but now know more
Months and years of painful chore
Beaten for every thought you think
A parallel nightmare with no brink
Quietly screaming within your mind
Hours more are all you find
An answer toward the stars you plead
The nightmare answers, the more you bleed
Struggle against the flow of time
Struggle against the dark and grime
Struggle against what is to be

A Monstrous Romance - PreludeDocument 1A Monstrous Romance - Prelude by QuiEstInLiteris
Fragment of a letter from “The Lesser Man” to “My Brother Galfridus”
Date estimated early 12th Century
Translated as accurately as possible from the original faulty Latin
Three days hence we shall arrive in the lands of our sister Columba. I shall write again at our arrival, but this I shall send ahead, because much of what we came to see, we have seen already, and because the farther we go, the greater becomes my fear that these missives will be intercepted.
Brother, I do believe that our sister Columba and all of her household must be dead. A kingdom of blasphemers has risen here, and its blight can be easily seen. I do not know how this could have happened without our hearing of it. The people live in such great fear that they have no hospitality for strangers. Our party sleeps in the open, and in the night, we have heard such cries and howls that I am convinced that Demiourgos has made his h
StrengthAuthor's Note: Hello everyone! This is my first installment for my poems collection: Dying Youths. The collection concerns on youth suicides. The contents and meanings of the poems are the thoughts or struggles of teen which lead them into committing suicides. Youth suicides is still an on-going 'trend' all over the world. According to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), approximately 12.6 (rate per 100,000) people commit suicide back in year 2013. The statistic is still constant over the years. Hence, the poems is to bring the awareness among all of us, young and old, about what's wrong among the youths.Strength by TheStranger220
P.S.: Sorry about my grammar. I may not be good but I hope you guys can understand. Thank you so much!
I needed the strength to fly,
Fly high up in the sky,
If only I have the strength to try,
For I have only a few minutes to die.
I needed the strength to love,
A fiery passion for someone to hold,
But deep inside I have no ho
#DarkArtists-Inc is a group focused only in Dark Art.
We like Dark Art and we want to expose it so, we welcome all Dark Art Lovers to our Group.
We accept ALL kinds of media, as long as you keep it Dark; not necessary under a "dark" category but, the images must convey some dark emotion and/or feeling.
We accept from Beginners to Experts but please, refrain from sending your entire gallery and try to send ONLY your best to the Group. We do not accept crappy stuff!
The Group Staff reserves the right to deny art that we don't think suitable for the Group's thematics, either for the theme itself, either for the complete lack of quality.
FOUNDERS & CONTRIBUTORS
Who are the Founders & Co-Founders and what's their job here?
the Founder is the person who founded the group and basically he/she can do anything and have full control of everything around the Group. The Co-Founder was designated by the Founder to be in control as well, helping with everything and still able to manage the settings, when necessary.
Who are the Contributors and what's their job here?
Contributors are invited by the Founder and/or Co-Founder. They are chosen according to their skills and areas of expertize. Their job is to accept or decline suggested submissions & favourites, and also, accepting or denying members (always applying the Group's guidelines for Dark Art thematic). Contributors can as well give members the necessary feedback and help. Last but not least, our Contributors help running this amazing Group.
Can I be a Contributor?
For now we're not accepting any more Contributors. In the future, if we feel the need to add more COntributors to our pannel, we'll write a public announcement.
Who are the members and what's their job around here?
Members are free to join or they can be invited by someone from the Admin panel. A member can suggest his own work (or the work of others) to be exposed by the Group, as long as it abides by the Group's thematics. This exposure gives extra feedback to the member's gallery, allowing improvement and more publicity to his gallery & work. A member can also suggest favourites for the Group, following the same guidelines used for the suggested submissions.
Can I become a member?
Yes, we have membership applications open. You just need to click on the "Join Our Group" button (front page left).
Be sure you follow these small rules: you can only submit images related to dark/macabre art or that have some dramatic/dark feeling into it. In case you use resources (external or personal) they have to be credited in your image description.
Are the submissions posted like it was before, under the group's name?
No. On the top of our Front Page, where you have your nickname and your little avatar, click on the arrow and choose to Contribute a Deviation or Suggest a Fave (reminding that, to do it, you have to be an accepted member). After your contribution or suggestion is sent, you just have to wait for approval.
My image suggestion/submission was denied. Why?
One of these reasons: the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) has nothing dark about it; your suggestion (for submission or favourite) doesn't properly credit stockers or is violating some dA policy; what you're trying to submit isn't considered art at all, even for a beginner; the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) is offensive and it can generate uncomfort among several people.
Is there some limit of images I can contribute/suggest?
Please limit your Gallery Suggestions to 2 per month; and limit your Favourite Suggestions to 1 per WEEK as well!
I'm waiting for over than 24/48 hours for my work to be approved or denied. What's happening?
Despite we're trying to gather a reasonable amount of Staff, we can't be around 24/7 and we have lots of images to analyze. Please be patient and soon you'll now if your image has been approved or denied by our Staff.
It's possible that during sometime, things don't work properly. We are already aware that there's a Bug in Groups. dA is trying to set everything right so, lets be patient for some days.
