Dracula's Ball, October 30th! Celldweller, Sepharim Shock, DJ's, Candy, + More!
The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Saturday, October 30th and includes live performances by Seraphim Shock and Celldweller as well as three DJs spinning in three separate rooms.
All ages are welcome. If you want to drink alcohol, you must be 21+ w/photo ID. Tickets are $16 and are on sale now at Ticketmaster (in person or online), IsoTank.com and Digital Ferret CDs.
Our Halloween event has sold out for many years running.... As such, we recommend advance tickets in the strongest possible terms. Every year we turn away several hundred people who want to attend but did not purchase tickets.
Costumes are encouraged but not required. Although this is our Halloween event, please note that it takes place on Saturday the 30th of October. Of course, a few hours after we open, midnight will roll around and we'll kick off the official start of Halloween!

Destroyer of Self
There’s something soft and lovely against my skin,
I have to rip it off and expose my myself to discomfort.
The sun is comforting and warm,
I have to run into the cold shadows.
It’s as if some horrible sickness causes me to destroy happiness.
The rose is ripped apart in my hand, I only wanted to smell it.
Yet I destroyed beautiful enjoyment.
Pleasure will be cut away.
In the end I’ll kill it.
Sweet honey fills my mouth, but it comes off my tongue as poison.
This dysfunction is spilling out.
Murdering joy and peace.
Calm is a desperate search for my own survival.
Scrub this rot off my heart.
Chains lock my soul to angry hate.
I don’t want this anymore!
I need a new heart, to rid the black.
New eyes to dry the tears.
New ears to kill the shouts.
New lips to stop the venom.
A brand new self to escape the pain.
What will it take to mend my brokenness?
I want this sickness burned away.
I want the sun to drive away the chill in my veins.
I need freedom from my own insanity. Current Mood: Defeated

Prison of Solitude
Wrap the blanket up tighter, I’m still breathing. Push the pillow closer to my face; my muffled cries are still filling the air. Turn off all the lights- the shadows will keep me company. No one exists right now in my world but me. The dark is crawling up my feet, slipping close against my skin, close against my heart. Feel the sweet hurt pushing through my chest. No, make it go away. Pull the covers up higher, I still exist, I’m still here. What will it take for me to disappear?
The needles prick my fingertips, still offering no comfort. Gray, black, dark, cold- wash my skin. The tears come and go streaking down my face. They are always deep inside. They’re free to choke me. Trap then, conceal them deep within. The walls absorb the light drinking in and giving off the shady dark. My voice is torn. My cries creep through. The room is laughing, suffocating my spirit with my own dismay. Softly rocking, gulping down the hurt. Reality slices me over and over. Quiet, just my cries. Alone, the shadows hold me tight. My sight is altered. My will ill formed. Pathetic. Weak. My own skin makes me sick. A voice, I need a voice for the silence to break. Chains lock me tight, burning my heart. Just take my breath. Sleep is far. Nightmares real.
The voice is found, calls quietly. It stains my heart, cuts my flesh. Crashing, crashing. Insane, everything tumbles. Shatter. Fall. Lost. Crawling patiently. Light, light. Hope is deep within the sickness. Beauty nailed behind a mask of desolate shame. Claw, scratch, escape. Fight the shadows. Blinking back tears I open the door to let the light blind me. Current Mood: contemplative

Why do I speak to thee
When you are deaf to my words,
Nodding dumbly without reason,
My free thoughts lost in that black cavity
Neither saved nor preserved but lost to darkness
As you echo my speech
Revealing the hollowness beneath your empty shell?
Your embraces constrict me
Your refusal to challenge, your ready surrender
Leaving no obstacle to overcome, nothing to bar my path
That I do not cease and question
Do not stop and wonder
But only fall forward
In my intellectual charges
And become like a stumbling child
Never truly able to learn to walk
And become all too happy to drag myself along my belly
Through the dirt like a lowly serpent
Poisoned by your servitude
That I become venomous to those who fail to do likewise.
Your devoted mediocrity swallows me
Like the pale Moon does the Sun
Eclipsing day for night.
You are no golden angel, no muse, no goddess
But a mirror that reflects my luminance
Blinding me with my own reflection
That I might not see the true world
But only that which you reinforce,
A gilded cage of my own make,
Causing me to close my eyes
Pierced and fearing my own Reason
That I flee from it, smother it, cause myself to dull
And regress, devolve, revert
Into that primordial savage
Lost in the shadows
To thrash and scream
Because of you,
You undermining sycophant.

While reading this community, I noticed that there are many loving and caring people who have been hurt badly in so many different ways. There are many ways that help is available, and I'm hoping that my community can ease some of your demons.
It doesn't say in the userinfo page that I cannot do this, so here I go and I am terribly sorry if this offends anyone. And if it does, the mod can delete this entry immediately. I created a community a while ago called attemptfailed: for people who have attempted suicide. It is not a pro- suicide community, but it is one for people to tell their stories, get advice, find people to relate to, etc.
There is much more about it on our userinfo page, but I thought I'd give a little introduction to the community in case anyone out there is interested. Take care everyone.X~Posted, please leave comments on 1st entry of attemptfailed if you have any questions

six feet under
maybe if i crawled six feet under
and laid down to die
everything would be a lot easier
my back wouldn't be weighed down by tasks
my knees wouldn't be breaking at the thought
and my heart would beat stonger, if at all
and if they never found my body
my presence will never go unforgotten
but i'd still have a fancy funeral
with my pretty face in my pretty casket
and with flowers that would dry up and die
just like me
and even then i'd still be the center of attention
just how she liked it, everyone would think
such a shame for a girl so young
they'd say, she had so much life ahead of her
but they didn't know how inviting that hole sounds
please bury me with my nonexistent jewels and riches
pictures of me smiling and a pair of wings
(in case i don't make it to heaven)
i'll still be in angel in your eyes
carve into my tomb my name with a heart
so at least they'd know that i knew love
and that it wasn't love that was the death of me
and that it was me that was the death of me
and tell them
i slowly decayed
and somewhere between half alive and half dead
looking something like a molding fruit
i slowly became the soil beneath your feet
all my debts will be erased
and now, only now, would i be able to fly
becoming the breeze that blows through your hair
the scared shivers you get when you're all alone
and the reason you check behind the shower curtain
i wouldn't call it haunting
no i wouldn't call it that at all
just a series of gestures to jog your memory
so you'll never forget someone like me
remember there's a trainstation when you close your eyes
the price of a ticket is free
visit me in your dreams
i'll see you soon.
