Scarlet“Did you hear about the new girl coming in?” Leonardo asked Artemi one morning in the office. He was wearing his gray striped sweater and his jeans that were just a little too tight, but Artemi didn’t mind.
“New girl?” Artemi asked, feeding papers through a shredder. Today was her “clean cubicle day”, mot more than likely, she’d give up in about fifteen minutes like always.
“Yeah,” Leonardo said, leaning up against her desk, “Her name is Scarlet. She’s supposed to be in here today.” He took a sip of coffee.
Scarlet… Artemi knew instantly by just her name that there was going to be trouble. “Where is she coming from?” Artemi asked.
“California, I think,” Leonardo replied, “Napa Valley.”
“Oh,” Artemi said, shredding more paper. Napa Valley… Scarlet… California… Yup. The stereotypes were already popping in her head. Right as Artemi began
Fight With MeI'll be damned if I don't fight for you
Stand by my side and I'll stand by yours too
With a sword in hand and a fire in my heart
I'll tear the demons until they're completely apart
Look into my eyes and see I am true
For you, my love, it's anything I'll do
Hold my hand tight and help me fight to the death
And when the battle is over, we can finally rest
HomeFeel the wind upon my face
The Texas air makes my heart race
The green of the trees and clean air
"I AM HOME!" I do declare.
Mother at the gate with a welcoming embrace
Losing my bearings in the time of haste
Been gone for so long, I miss the soil
I am welcomed back to my land like a royal
The sun is bright and high in the sky
My eyes redden as I begin to cry
Tears fall in such a happy way
Long awaited has been this day
Time is TickingMy life will not be my own in two week's time
I have pressed my thumb and my name has been signed
I have taken an oath in tears tonight
My only choice now is to do or die
Sign awayTo do or die is now my only choice
I have signed my name and lost my voice
One in a million now one of a million
If I fall to the ground my head will flatten
Sharing everyone elses face
Wearing the same clothes with great distaste
Standing at attention with my back up straight
Running for miles, from my mouth cadance will resignate
Traveling to far off places across the land
With a pistol on my hip and a rifle on my hip
Gone for years with no seeing those I love
I hope to God my father is smiling above
With this choice, I hope I have Krishna's grace
I hope I obtain the patience of Buddha and learn to embrace
I hope I have Karma on my weary side
Before my mind begins to completely slide
Losing sleep each and every night
Thinking about the internal conflict and fight
Am I doing what I feel is truly my path
Or will I suffer at the hands of my own government's wrath?
Drop Down, Give me TwentyDrop down, and give me twenty
Sit-ups, push-ups, many many
Running miles, shooting guns
Exercise until I have sore buns
Gas chamber bringing tears to my eyes
Waking up before the sunrise
Three minutes to shower, three more to eat
Learning combat so not to get beat
Book-work, book-work, study, study
Mind and body will become sturdy
Graduate with medals, badges, and more
This feeling of pride makes my spirit soar
8There is sea glass in my lungs. Bottles of undelivered messages smashed and worn down from the unforgiving waters in my chest.
The DarknessThe Darkness
Dark is night,
Dark is fire,
Dark is the absence of the light,
Dark is a deep desire,
Night is calm,
Night is wish,
It's not something you can hold in your palm,
Night is the blackest of the pitch,
Black is the absence of colour,
Black is not always empty,
Black makes the waves of your body flutter,
Black is as black as it can be,
The abyss is darkness,
The abyss is strange,
The abyss leaves you helpless,
The abyss may have you forever changed.
Her Thoughts on LifeIt is cruel, it is unfair
Throws you surprises without a care...
It is sick, it is twisted
It's darkness is oh so demented...
It is complicated, it is uncontrollable
It can make you feel so emotional...
It is magical, it is beautiful,
The truths in the winds can be musical.
It is unique, it is a blessing,
It can leave you always guessing.
It is special, it is everlasting
It's moments depends on how you're acting.
MindtravelClenching his delicate fingers and looking into his eyes, I almost felt like I'd faint. I did black out, but awoke in what appeared to be outer space.
I thought I'd die of the said asphyxiation that made you lose breath, but I didn't. I was breathing just fine. I thought I was alone, floating in this lovely space, but I wasn't.
He was right in front of me, black eyes gleaming in the sun. He extended his hands like he did before we appeared in this place. I held them and looked into his eyes.
Within those eyes, I saw everything. The truths behind lies, the feeling of being brought back to life, what truly happened before and the cloaked truths that were never before seen.
We let go and everything faded back to the room we were sitting in. I was poisoned, but that was merely a remainder of what was left of him. I'd remember him by this poison.
Birthday PoemBirthday Poem
Spring is a delight,
Summer is nice,
One year dies as a new one takes flight,
Your warm as fire but not cold as ice,
May your journey lead you to the best of things,
The birth of you is something to hold dear,
Take life that's fit for queens and kings,
Happy Birthday to you with a raised glass of beer!
Just me.I've always been different and weird, I won't deny it. I used to hang out a lot more with adults and "mature" people, instead of kids my age. We just didn't get along. That caused me to be the loner in school…the weirdo and outsider everyone would pick on. I've never experienced bad bullying, but some kind of mistreatment has always been there. Let me explain my way of thinking. Why? Because almost everyone I know calls me and my thoughts weird and complex. They're not if you at least TRY to understand them. You will understand if there's at least a little bit of human in you.
The world has always influenced me, not doubting it. Many people just come along as they see me cry and say "Stop it; there are people who are much more miserable than you. Poor people for example". Yes, but have those people telling me this ever considered that my sadness actually IS because of so many people suffering? Nope. The world is cruel and unfair, telling us what to do and who to be. If we don't f
ProtestsI run past your Ivory Tower
Rich white kids handing out fake flowers
Since the real ones are too delicate
For their egos and their benefit.
I look at their protest posters
Arts & crafts projects made of glitter
Perfectly parading a Muslim name
While mine's spelled the American way
Out of shame.
I see the sun setting down
White flesh matching
The house they're marching to
I don't know why I'm not so grateful
Of the shouts from their souls coming through
I run back to my home
Protest posters thrown away and gone
I can't defend myself without
The armor from the colonizers
Who can't pronounce my name
I Need YouWhy do you always do that?
Disappear almost immediately...
I'm sure you have a reason,
but I need you.
I have no one else to go to;
no one else is really there.
I can barely stand.
Please come back...
I feel like I'm being torn;
ripped apart at the seams.
My heart is aching
and my soul is in pain.
I've been trying to stay strong,
for you of course,
but it's so hard
and it hurts so much.
Why does this always happen
to you and I?
Can things never go our way?
Can't I just be happy?
Why can't there be no pain.
I just want to see the joy in your eyes.
I don't want things to be like this.
Please, just...answer me.
I need you.
try all you might
resolution in sight
nevertheless it takes flight
agnate a kite
the prospective is it bright
happiness is a priviledge
albeit not a right
to my delight
in this wacky world
so wacky and trite
there is no one else to hold the light
the jellyfish flow
is all that i know
the mundane existence of eternally slow
the gradual decline of lethargy ill show
nowhere else is there to try
or to go
so minsanthropy is the good for now
while the soul grows mold
and while your body's always warm
its so hard to just be cold
WhateverYou didn't listen when I told you no.
Now you're in trouble, I hope you know.
Don't get mad at me for your stupid mistake
Only one time, that's all it'll take
You're an idiot for not listening to me
You dug your own grave, I'll just let you be
Just don't drag us all down into the dirt
You didn't listen to me you inconsiderate jerk
A simple "ok" would have sufficed
But now it's your sanity you have sacrificed
Goodbye my dear, I wish you well
But you probably don't care, so just go to hell.
Keep in Touch!
