It rained
today
and the rain
reminded me of tears
and each sob
was like a death
died alone
in the dark
pale dead skin
washed clean
by the drops
of my tears
falling
falling
each splash on the
cold gray earth
like a knife
plunged
into my soul
that killed me
made me dead
like the world
like the world

How does one celebrate Goth Day? Do you stay in your room, draw the shades, turn out all the lights, and listen to Joy Division for hours on end?

Hey, I loves me some Ian Curtis, but seriously--they didn't make that many albums. That playlist is on repeat pretty damn quickly.

Peter Steele is dead and Robert Smith got really fat.

There's nothing else to say.

"Where are you going? Is it to the top? If not, why not? Go to the bloody top! Is it because you're a goth? Did you know that goths have some of the lowest life satisfaction levels of any subculture with the exception of traffic wardens. That's why you don't see any goth traffic wardens. That would be a deadly combination. We at Goth2Boss work with goths in various locations around the UK to bring out their hidden potential by encouraging them to engage in everyday, healthy pursuits such as sport, mixing with other humans, extended laughter sessions and introducing colour to your wardrobe. Just look at these results. This is Debbie. She used to hang around railway stations with her hands in her sleeves. Now she's a lifeguard in Mumbai. From Goth2Boss, you known it makes sense. Unless your not a goth, in which case ... From Goth2Boss. Remember the name."

I think you're thinking emo, submitter?

I didn't think goths couldn't be happy, or anything. Heck, isn't that where the whole 'Perky Goth' thing came from?

In the mist of my endless search the best in life becomes clear.

The rest just begins to fade by itself. That's a trick I learnt though it took so long.

Anyone can post about how goths are fat depressed posers. The real challenge is in posting pictures of hot goths.

Go on, do it. I dare you.

If you're a sissy goth, that's how you do it.

If you're a real goth you take your jar of collected tears to the grave of your dead lover at midnight and fling yourself across the headstone weeping while the rain pours down and the wind kisses your hair like your beloved's lips once did.

At least, that's how we did it in my day.

HA HA HA
Wake up in the dark
The after-taste of anger in the back of my mouth
Spit it on the wall
And cough some more
And scrape my skin with razor blades

And make up in the new blood
And try to look so good
Follow me
Make up in the new blood
And follow me to where the real fun is
Ha ha ha

As stale and selfish as a sick dog
Spurning sex like an animal of god
I'll tear your red hair by the roots
And hold you blazing
Hold you cherished in the dead electric light

Your face
I'll never see you this way again
I captured it so perfectly
As if I knew you'd disappear away

Shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake dog shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake
Shake dog shake

You hit me again
You howl and hit me again
The same sharp pain
Wakes me in the dark
And cuts me from my throat to my pounding heart
My heart
My shaking heart
My howl my shake dog

Oh shake dog shake
Shake shake
Shake dog shake

But we slept all night in the virgin's bed
And dreamed of death
And breathed like sick dogs
We slept all night in the virgin's bed
And breathed like death
And dreamed of sick dogs

Shake shake
Shake dog shake

Wake up wake up wake up
Shake dog shake
Wake up wake up wake up
Shake dog shake
Wake up in the new blood
Make up in the new blood
Shake up in the new blood
And follow me to where the real fun is
Shake dog shake

Very disappointed in the pictures. Although a related link goes to a british goth fest that has some pretty excellent steam punk getups. Not so much goth, but at least interesting to look at. One or two hot ladies as well...

A bit, but (to me) goth was more about the physical style, affectations of romantic tragedy and general angst.

Emo...well emo has borrowed a lot from goth, but from what I understand they all are empty inside just cuz and they cut themselves to feel something, *dramatic pause* anything. Nihilism lite, if you will.

Goths are creative enough to at least come up with reasons for the angst. Silly, Edgar Allan Poe reasons, but reasons.

An emo wouldn't know a bottle of absinthe if they broke one to cut themselves with it.

Steampunk is where it's at. They players are the same, but they've discovered brown.

Can never decide which album is my favorite. (Saw Peter Hook & the Light a few months ago, they did Closer... just isn't the same. But at least Hooky can sing these days.)

And I wish I'd known it was World Goth Day, I would have worn my spikes to work! Good thing they're just out in my car. May have to do the ol' raccoon-eyes makeup while I'm at it. WHERE ARE MY FISHNETS!

Did you guys hear about the serial killer that's targeting goth chicks?

He leaves a razor blade on the table and starts a rumor that Robert Smith died.
