Red Balloon


I'm the poet who's begging you to not read in between the lines.
A silent prayer stitched into the paper.
These words are like a shallow pool.
There is nothing more than meets the eye.
I'm just the girl with a red balloon,
tied around my finger and a pocket full of thumbtacks.
The color doesn't represent my emotions.
If I let it go, I won't have it anymore.
If I pop it, I'll have a reminder of it.
My dilemma isn't symbolism of an inner conflict.

There lives in my head,
a world where a red balloon is just that.
A world where the words inside my head
aren't afraid to make it onto paper.
Where my voice doesn't waver when someone
asks what I plan on doing with that balloon.
Some whispers are louder than screams.

The thread around my finger
tied a little too tight.
My grip on this balloon
a little too much.

There are poets out there,
with beautiful minds, beautiful souls.
But here I am.
I'm just a girl with a red balloon.

It's a School Night!

It's 12:15 A.M. and I just finished watching the first episode of "Red Band Society".
If you're asking what that is. Just stop yourself right there. GO WATCH THE TRAILER.


So, how was it?
HOLY FREAKING GOODNESS GRACIOUS. WHY HAVEN'T I HEARD ABOUT THIS BEFORE? WHY DID'NT MY SISTER TELL ME HOW AWESOME THE SHOW SEEMED WHEN SHE WATCHED THE TRAILER LAST YEAR?
2014???? WHAAAAAT.
Hm. At least I don't have to wait for episodes to come out.

This show is going to ruin my life. I know it. I'm sure of it.
While I was about half way through... okay fine, 10 minutes into the episode, I started downloading the torrents for the next couple of episodes. (Because I must)
Usually, episode downloads take a couple of minutes to finish. But my FUP limit is up and it's painstakingly slow.
So I decided to blog about this show that will soon destroy my life and my sleep.


I'm also yelling at myself internally that IT'S A SCHOOL COLLEGE NIGHT! I have a lab that I'm dreading tomorrow and I haven't even begun on the observation for it.
I'll definitely be vomiting rainbows and beaming sunshine tomorrow, so be sure to not get on my bad side. 

.................
What the heck. 22% is finished and it'll take another 1 hour to finish???!?
HELL NO.

Good night. 
Peace out.


P.S. --- Ooh. Also, it's February.
Also, why is everyone freaking out about Valentine's Day? It seems so far away to me.

*****I found out last night that this show has been cancelled. So that sucks.******
