Goodbye, idiot
When you look at me,
you see behind me;
When you listen,
you hear your thoughts.
When you talk to me,
you think I’m changing;
When you’re angry,
you think I’m not.
When I am crying,
you think it’s weakness;
When I am tired,
you ask for more.
When I am lonely,
you talk of leaving;
When I am leaving,
you declare war.

My Disease
My fingers bleed words
that my lips cannot say.
When they try to trickle out,
I scowl and turn away.
It may not be contagious,
but it is a disease.
Holding myself deep inside,
it's getting hard to breathe.
Lies come so easy,
to cover up the truth.
It’s like my second nature,
grown from my very youth.
It’s deeper than conviction,
more earnest than a thought.
It’s my way
It’s my life
It is my disease.

Look Closer
Stop and look closer.
You’ll see a person behind this face,
A beating heart beneath this chest,
A fire burning for life, for love:
You’ll see something beautiful.
Stop and look closer.
I’m not a number, not a name—
I am myself, just as you are
Unique, special, one-of-a-kind.
Please don’t look right through me.
Stop and look closer.
I wish to know you, and you me;
I wish to see beyond the surface
Of yourself; I wish to touch your soul.
Please don’t brush me aside.
Stop and look closer.
For just a moment, just a minute,
Give me a chance to show you
This burning flame I keep inside.
Please share yourself with me.
Stop and look closer!
As you turn away to leave,
My burning heart turns to icy stone.
If you would just give me a chance...
Please don’t leave me.
Stop! Look closer!
Why do you always leave?
Why don’t you see me when I see you?
I would never leave if you’d just...
Please come back to me!
Stop! Look at me!
I’ll die if you

I Am Flawed
From body to soul and in between,
They blotch the parchment that is me;
I know of worse flaws I have seen,
But surely
I am flawed.
I sometimes lose my temper,
Use my mouth before my mind;
I ponder things I could do better,
And regret them for a time.
I can be harsh, I can be blunt,
I tend to hide my thoughts;
But this is far from what I want:
To be in someone's heart.
Comparisons are hard to make
Since we are all unique.
But half the time my words are fake;
The real me is a freak.
These flaws define me, describe me—
They make me what I am.
In that light, I'm proud to say that

Headache (A Mass Effect 3 One-Shot)
Shepherd watched as the keys of the piano depressed under Glyph's ministrations, filling the apartment with lingering notes and resounding chords. Liara sat nearby, a soothing presence, as the music washed through Shepherd's mind, clearing it. The battles on Thessia, Rannoch, Palaven, and elsewhere in the galaxy seemed more distant than ever. However, the constant reminder of the challenges ahead remained in full force. The moment was bittersweet, but pleasant nonetheless. If only this could last, Shepherd thought remorsefully, eyes slipping shut but for a moment.
"This is a nice place," Liara commented from her seat on the couch, tapping casually on a datapad.
"Shall I transfer over your reports so you may work here?" Glyph asked studiously.
"Yes. Thank you, Glyph." Liara glanced over at her human friend. "And thank you for inviting me, Shepherd."
Turning away from the piano, Shepherd once again absorbed the sight of Anderson's gifted apartment. The near-constant hum of passing

Life is a cloud–
Shapeless unless captured,
Quite unpredictable,
And temporary.
Fly while you can.

Germany - Request
Black, red, and yellow
Mark her steady steps
Through history.
An ever-changing land
Whose fate is shrouded
In mystery.
A proud name is borne
By her loyal people
With dignity.
Respect, pride, honor–
Beyond a doubt
This is Germany.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 26 27
Memory is like the tide,
It swells and ebbs;
It's free and wide,
Yet ridden with dregs.
At times it's calm—
Soothing and sweet;
Like a tender balm,
A gentle beat.
It's violent, too—
Coarse and bitter;
Like a vicious coup,
A cruel winter.
In it, I do bask,
Adrift in my mind;
I need only ask
To be lost in time.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 255 95
What's Not Being Said
I heard you sigh
but at the time
I didn't say a word;
I saw you cry
but didn't know
your voice was so unheard.
I felt you break
but truly thought
I shouldn't be around;
For my own sake
I should have fought
to keep your feelings sound.
Please, listen to what's not being said.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 525 85
I'm Here for You
What do you expect me to say
When you keep pushing me away?
Remember—I can't read your mind,
And time cannot rewind.
Regret will only make it worse—
Like a bad omen from a curse.
This will surely make you stronger;
Please just hold on longer.
I'll be here, right by your side;
You don't have to run and hide.
Just try to find the silver lining—
The sun will keep on shining.
Never forget that this is true:
I am here for you.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 550 178
Whispers in my ear
Compel me to surrender.
But I will not hear;
I defy my contender.
Defeat is not an option;
There is no other way:
Survive against all odds
To die another day.
'Tis the oldest battlecry;
The only ultimatum.
Fight until you die—
Rather plain verbatim.
To be classified as "alive,"
Survive, survive, survive.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 142 63
She Believed
I stumble through my mind,
Weakened by the pain of years.
I always search but cannot find
The source of all my bitter tears.
I see a light, an anchor, a hope;
I limp faster, relieved by the sight.
I found a gentle, downward slope—
Like a rescue from a blight.
I lean on you, no longer afraid;
Finally I have found relief.
Tears dry, memories fade,
Like wind carries a wilted leaf.
But in the end, it wasn't true—
You held my heart yet let it die.
My anchor became my noose;
My trust was blinded to your lie.
How could I be so ignorant?
You pledged to never leave my side.
There's none to blame but myself—
"She believed when he lied."
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 199 72
Ghosts of You
ghosts of you are everywhere;
remInding me, alwayS There.
i dIdn't mean to say goodbye;
was just afraid to ask you why:
why you bLushed and why you sighed;
we didn't rush—that's why we died.
the gLow faded, our Love fought;
i wish i'd knOwn what you thought.
i neVer knEw what You wanted;
nOw i'm stuck with being haUnted.

I Feel Free
When I look into your eyes,
I see experience.
When I hold your hands,
I know strength.
When I touch your skin,
I sense comfort.
When I listen to your heart,
I hear power.
When I speak your name,
I find pleasure.
When I kiss your lips,
I feel free.
:iconscarletdevil1503:ScarletDevil1503 200 97
Wish for Privacy
I live behind a locked door,
And no one has the key.
It has been years, maybe more
Since someone talked to me.
The solitude was nice at first,
The quiet let me think.
But soon it took a turn for worse—
Now all I do is blink.
So be careful, my dear friends,
When you wish for privacy.
Count to 5 when patience bends
Or you'll end up just like me.

All deviants can now write Critiques
:star:  Be a giver!
Sometimes you come across a deviation that deserves special attention. It catches your eye in such a way that you're compelled to craft a response that goes above and beyond a normal comment.  Or perhaps a fellow deviant is having a tough time with a particular aspect of their work, and you know just what they need to take their art to the next level. As a good Internet citizen and art enthusiast, you want to help them out, but a normal comment doesn't quite suit your purpose. 
For these situations and more, we've given everyone the ability to write a Critique.  
:?  What is Critique?
DeviantART's Critique system is designed to help artists get in-depth, critical feedback and commentary on their work.  Valued feedback through Critique promotes creative growth as an artist and draws special attention to work.  Critiques are also a way for committed art enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and fans to publish real criticism,

It's been so long, I don't even know where to start. Sweating a little... 
When you look at me,
you see behind me;
When you listen,
you hear your thoughts.
When you talk to me,
you think I’m changing;
When you’re angry,
you think I’m not.

When I am crying,
you think it’s weakness;
When I am tired,
you ask for more.
When I am lonely,
you talk of leaving;
When I am leaving,
you declare war.

My online alias is Scarlet. And yours...? Ah, it's a pleasure to meet you.

This is my first "official" account here on dA, but I've been lurking about the community for years. I know the ropes pretty well, so if you need help with anything – ask! Though I initially joined to receive feedback on my work, I've come to greatly enjoy supporting and helping fellow deviants. I also have a slight obsession with those Llama Badges... if you give me one, you'll definitely find my username somewhere in your inbox.

I really can't tell you how much I appreciate support of my literature (which is mostly poetry – not the most popular form of art). Every Watch, Favorite, and view means the world to me! I'm not the best at writing – far from it – but I'm simply in love with it. It's my passion; my way to escape the humdrum of life.

Thank you for visiting!
