    He sings a song called “Chili Pepper”
    It’s about a girl he loves.
    And it’s cute.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, divider 4 years, 10 months ago

    What does it take
    to overcome
    a feeling a being
    this numb?
    A feeling that isn’t
    a feeling at all
    But more of a cycle
    A burden
    A fall

  • Scarlett commented on the post, bluegrass 6 years, 1 month ago

    The twang in his voice was just one thing I never got used to
    Or tired of
    He’d read his poetry out loud
    While we sat on his porch
    The one with the tin roof
    Listening to the rain and sharing a cigarette.
    He always had that bluegrass drawl
    And that southern twang
    And I’ll never forget the way his voice sounded
    When he rattled off those…[Read more]

  • Scarlett commented on the post, homeless 6 years, 4 months ago

    Sleeping in a ditch isn’t so bad…
    Having no home isn’t so bad
    Wandering from place to place really isn’t so bad…..
    It’s the looks I get from people
    The whispers from parents
    “Oh don’t go near that man”
    The assumption that I’m somehow more dangerous
    More likely to strike
    When in reality,
    I am more docile than most
    Of the people that…[Read more]

  • Scarlett commented on the post, smudge 6 years, 6 months ago

    Her eyeliner was smudged just a little bit. It was nothing noticeable to most people….. but I have a habit of studying her every detail. Everything about her is just so stunning to me.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, withered 6 years, 7 months ago

    Withered was her soul,
    Red, bloodshot, her eyes
    That smile… it wasn’t real.
    I could tell….
    And the way she tugged at her long sleeves
    Making certain that they didn’t slide up
    She hid something….

  • Scarlett commented on the post, lamb 6 years, 7 months ago

    Hush now, my little lamb
    Don’t cry anymore
    You see, I’m almost done
    It’s time to be quiet now
    And stop that screaming
    Because you’re almost complete
    My darling, I’m finished
    And you’ve begun to grow cold
    But I’ll love you like this
    As I did when you weren’t mine
    Your blushing cheeks have lost their tint
    The rose colour replaced…[Read more]

  • Scarlett commented on the post, grasped 6 years, 8 months ago

    he grasped my wrist and pulled me close to him. “why….? why would you do this to yourself?”
    my blood was smeared on his t-shirt and all I could think about was that his shirt would be ruined…… and it would just be one more thing that got messed up because of me.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, learn 6 years, 8 months ago

    We’re always being told
    What we’re supposed to learn
    And for at least twelve years
    We are force-fed
    Useless bullshit
    That they think we need to know

  • Scarlett commented on the post, half 7 years, 1 month ago

    Half an apple
    Half a sandwich
    Half of everything
    to become half my size
    I’m fat and gross
    and need to stop
    eating more than half
    anything

    The decorations on the table were enough to distract from the motive behind his gaze. She wasn’t safe…

  • Scarlett commented on the post, crew 7 years, 3 months ago

    I looked out at the field, torn apart by hatred. I looked behind me, for the support of the best friends I had ever known…..
    They weren’t there. Each one of them had given their lives today….
    Why should I […]

  • Scarlett commented on the post, flare 7 years, 11 months ago

    The flares on the side of the road warned cars to keep clear. The glass was spread across the road, like a fine sheet of snow. She was dead, and I had killed her.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, solitaire 7 years, 11 months ago

    solitaire
    solitary
    just one single heart
    beating in utter silence
    alone
    lonely
    emptiness and no more time
    a pistol
    one bullet
    solitary bullet
    a gasp
    a thud
    no more lonely
    no more solitary

  • Scarlett commented on the post, hearts 7 years, 11 months ago

    Hearts intertwined
    So tightly they begin to bleed
    The love these two share
    Is slowly killing them
    And they have no idea.
    They’ll die before they see
    That what they had was
    Just as fake and meaningless
    As their worthless lives.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, romantic 8 years ago

    I think romanticism is really overplayed. I’ll settle for a cute little teddy bear over an extravagant dinner and flowers anyday. Really, I just want to know they care.

  • Scarlett commented on the post, pressed 8 years ago

    He pressed his chest to mine, but what came next was not what you’re thinking. He leaned into me and whispered, “I love you, and I always will.” With a shuffle, he held in his hand, a ring.
