What meaning we store, In the words that fall from our mouthes. We should know better.
Before you leave:
Say goodbye, fragile smiles. Wave to the happy thoughts and the golden beams of light that would leave my eyes, and enter yours. Say goodbye, weeping starts. Im going somewhere your not, which indeed must be somewhere far. Artemis. S
“i could love you,” he says or whispers into your ear. And then you shiver but its not from his words it’s from his hand wrapped so tightly around your wrist that you know plum colored skin will be there when you look next. “I could love you,” he slips the words from his mouth. A snake! A snake, has wrapped itself around you. Declaring love he could give...
I walk in Madness.
I walk in madness and shadows in white attack. i believe what i see and i see what i know and there’s gossamer on peoples backs. -Artemis. S
Once Upon A Time
Life is full of these stories that tell You that if you wish hard enough, You’ll get everything you want. I Once Believed all that. When I was small, of course. I believed that even mundane things like shoe laces held magic. I placed all my hopes ...
The Lyrics Say:
“I see skies of blue, And I think to myself” “you belong with me” “I see you winding, grinding Up on that poll” “and I think to myself,” “I would catch a grenade for you.” “you had a lot of crooks try and steal your heart,” “and the silence scares me cause it screams the truth,” “but darling you are the only exception,” “and its too cold outside for angels to fly. Strange men, struggling to pay...
I suppose i’ve lost everything but i still dont feel like a loser. -Artemis.S
mysearchforwisdom: Bye bye beautiful mind, Write to me, When you find the time, Now and then, Would be perfectly fine.
how tired it can get, walking up the same mountains. You trip more often. -Artemis.s
turning the tables
There’s nothing better than when i turn on my heel and leave you wanting for a change. There’s nothing that feels better than walking away. -Artemis. S
I see small yellow dresses with the palest blue sashes and i remember tea parties with tiaras on our heads and princesses finding their own ways out then i feel sad because i miss the times where we wore small yellow dresses with the palest blue sashes. -Artemis. S
Fish in tide pools wait for the ocean to come back. Would is be okay if I waited for you like that? -Artemis. S
Paint my lips again, Put colour behind my eyes. Make my face like snow, Cover up every lie. Make me sleep on rice, Take away my right to think. Sculpt my hair with wax, then i’ll pour the tea you drink. I will cry no tears, i will feel no fears. I will dance with fans, then long for affection that’s banned. -Artemis.S
They try to feed me lies about whats pretty. I think to myself, “don’t believe them, they’re just hairspray and collagen.” But there’s this odd sort of ticking or maybe a tugging in my heart saying “for a day, i’d like to look like that too,” -Artemis.S
Look over here please. No, not past me, right at me. Please just meet my gaze.

Behind a Door (part 3)
I bring my knees to my chest And I cry a river and wish I could drown And I see you when you smile at me and I hope you never come around Again. You laugh at me You make my heart go dark and tears seep. Your hate makes me hate And now im playing it safe. I’ll shove my heart behind a door, And lock it away.
Behind a Door (part 2)
You brush my face with your fingers And I let you. Even though it hurts later And you know it does. And then you kiss me just because And it hurts even more I run away thinking What am I running for? You give my heart one final blow Ashes to Ashes is how the rhyme goes. An arrow in my heart straight through, Then I turn into dust too. Then you even laugh at me As my heart goes dark and tears...
Behind a Door (part 1)
How long I’ve kept my lips sealed How long I’ve locked away the key. How long I’ve wanted you Without you wanting me. Its like living in a room Without air. Like being too close to the suns hot glare. How easy it is for you to ignore It’s almost like your bored. You give my heart one final blow Ashes to Ashes is how the rhyme goes. An arrow in my heart straight through, Then I turn into dust...
At first glance,
They’re blue. Not just any blue but blue like the sea, hiding thousands of secrets in their depths. But then i notice a web of brown, and a spider of green and i realize that this ocean is far more comlplicated than i first thought. -Artemis. S
I’ll keep walking till i start feeling normal again then ill walk even farther. I wont leave behind a glass shoe and most certainly not my heart ill just keep walking till we’re far apart till you cant reach me anymore. -Artemis. S
I dont think you see how my eyes follow you. I dont think you notice how i smile when you smile. And i know that you dont see how i boil, how i steam with anger when he cancels on you. Or when he lies but you cant tell he’s lying and i most definitely can. You’re wasting your time on him but at least i know that- as long as im here- i’ll catch you when he trips...
Its dark But at the same time there’s light everywhere And I feel heavy but ever so light all At the same time. I think I’ve been walking for days now, But im not sure. Sometimes it feels like only moments. Other times like centuries. You’d think I’d have passed a gas station or something on the side of this seemingly endless highway of nothing, but I haven’t. Nor have I seen another person’s...
I felt so heavy. Then, i looked at your photo, I was a feather. -Artemis.S
Her gaze roams over the horizen she debates a running start but decides against it. she simply steps off and lets the wind take her. The wings behind her stretch out and for a moment she feels like how she felt before him. But then it all shatters. And the wings that were once so regal, so lovely are now letting the wind fly right through them, causing her to fall. and fall. and...
Sitting by the pier its dark and no one knows the two of you are there together. you watch the waves come and you watch them go. you hold each other’s hands under the moon’s soft glow. Put your head on his shoulder and close your eyes. “hey” You whisper in a sigh. And in that moment nothing else exists, most certainly not goodbye. -Artemis. S
Mr. W. Willow
I stand and look, with a question in my eyes. I ask you, “Mr. Willow, why do you cry? Have you not gotten enough sleep? Is that the reason why you weep? Or perhaps its something else that’s making you blue- Do you have something to share- is that true? How sad I am to see you there Heavy with secrets you cannot share. They weigh you down, it seems to me. They weigh you down and cause you to...
Never Gone Go
Is it because I am smaller, That I am insignificant? Or is it that I am far too easily noticed, That makes you so maleficient? Does the way I walk bother you? With light steps and straight. Does the way I avoid your traps annoy you? My intelligence make you irate? I was here first, As odd as that may seem To one as big as you, One in which such power teems. It is odd, indeed, But it is...
There’s nothing in the alley, But For the leftovers that Didn’t Make the cut And Got thrown away. Such Abundance Such Use. They could feed A Whole nation. Instead, They sit regally, And their beauty Slowly Disintegrates. -Artemis. S
