Lighthouse 2 by scarlet-cullen Lighthouse 2 :iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 4 6 Lighthouse by scarlet-cullen Lighthouse :iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 1 0
Hot Chocolate in June
Grey clouds swirling
Like a rolling sea
Wind blowing
Trees bending
Fighting the angry air
Ancient enemies
Or are they dancing
Like old friends?
Raindrops falling
And the ground is cold
So why are my feet
Still dry?
People complaining
'Call this summer?'
As if their pointless words
Will change nature
But curled up
In an old armchair
Hair tangled
From the wind's caress
I decide I like
Hot chocolate in June
Because it shouldn't work
And it really does
It isn't perfect
And they still complain
But I'm warm inside
:iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 3 5
Time Bomb
Background noise
No one listens
Because the sound is always there
And those who hear don't understand
Because they don't want to
It gets louder
Maybe it's noticed, maybe not
But if they hear they won't say
Because they fear they're the only one who can
Too loud, it echoes
I know you can hear it
It's too hard to ignore
It hurts my ears

Too late
We knew we were sitting on a time bomb
So why do we all pretend
We didn't see it coming?

Three Words
Three words
Three syllables
Caught in my throat
So small
Yet so big
So simple
But so damn complicated
Always there
Dragging me down
Like lead weights
Dead weight
To the dark depths
And I can't see
I can't even breathe
Sink or swim?
Right now I'm the one sinking
And I want to swim
To save myself
But I know someone's going to drown
And it's in my hands
Fight or flight?
But there's nothing to fight for
There never was
Only illusions
My wings are broken
And the sky is too high
Black or white?
Good or bad?
Right or wrong?
Somehow they all look the same
Lost in shades of grey
Smothered by fog
Empty shadows
Matching the empty words
Asking for help
Screaming at the sky
No reply
Just silence
And grey
Then the bright light of clarity
Burning my eyes
Even when they're closed
And I know
As if it was already decided
I have to swim, to breathe
To live
Knowing all the while
Someone is drowning
And it's my fault
All because of three words
So small
And simple
That I couldn't say
That would n

The Ascent by scarlet-cullen The Ascent :iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 3 3 Timeless by scarlet-cullen Timeless :iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 2 6
Liquid Beauty
And harmonies
And separate
Through the air
My mind
My heart
My soul
A sudden lift
Reaching for the sky
Then contrast
A delicate balance
Of sweet chords
Interspersed with silence
The theme remains
But always there
Or in plain sight
Blurred and obscure
Or focused
In centre stage
It's all there
And so much more
Infusing my mind
Sending shivers
Down my spine
For inner peace
In the perfect stream
Of pure liquid beauty
Before slowly
Drifting to a close

Who do you see?
When you look at me,
Who do you see?
Do you see the child?
Laughing at everything
And nothing,
Who plays for hours
In falling snow,
Untainted and pure
Like the crystals of ice,
Ignoring life's pressures
And letting go
Do you see the invisible?
The shrinking violet
Hiding in plain sight,
A forgotten face
Blending into the background,
Silent scenery
In the corner of your eye,
Watching from their shell
While safe from harm
Do you see the daydreamer?
Lost in thought
And full of wonder,
Feet on the ground
But head in the clouds,
Chasing stories
And inventing new worlds,
A free spirit
That can't be tied down
Maybe you see the optimist?
Finding the silver lining
To the darkest storm cloud,
Looking on the bright side
For that ray of hope
Or perhaps the actress?
Pretending it's fine
And holding together,
While ever so slowly
Breaking inside
Do you see someone else?
A single facet of a gem
One reflection in the hall of mirrors
Or do you see me?
The face behind the masks
The soul underneath
The m

Angel by scarlet-cullen Angel :iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 2 10
The beginnings of a sunset
Ending a warm afternoon
A soft orange hint on the horizon
A warm glow on the bare branches
Long shadows cast on the ground
A cool breeze drifting in through an open window
Mingling with the birdsong
Melodies weaving through lovingly crafted lyrics
Delicate harmonies bringing harmony to my thoughts
An oasis
Of summer in the depth of winter
Of calm in a hectic world
Of fleeting perfection
:iconscarlet-cullen:scarlet-cullen 1 3
Always lonely
A crowd
People everywhere
Jostling, pushing
But never actually seeing
Another nameless face
Forgotten in a heartbeat
Maybe less
An empty hallway
Not a soul in sight
Quiet footsteps
Echoing against the walls
Unnaturally loud
It makes no difference
It never does
I am alone

There's magma boiling in her frostbitten veins;
incandescent pixie dust and

sluggishly making its way through
a childish heart — wishing for one last chance

scarlet-cullen's Profile Picture
Ellie Nethaway
United Kingdom
My name is Ellie, I'm 19 years old and I'm from Wyboston, Bedfordshire, a tiny, boring little village that no one's ever heard of with an average age of 60. Fun!

I went to school in St. Neots, a town in Cambridgeshire, the home of some of the best (and weirdest) people on the planet... aka me and my friends! Currently studying Classics at the University of Exeter.

I love to read but writing isn't really a strong point of mine, as I'm very easily distracted. I like drawing, but my talent could definitely be questioned, and I adore fantasy. Daydreaming is vital people!

Current Residence: Bedfordshire, UK
Favourite genre of music: Anything really but mainly rock
MP3 player of choice: iPhone
Favourite cartoon character: Snoopy or Eeyore
