Faulty Grenade; Girls' PoV of Timebomb by Nico Collins

But trying so hard to be perfect,
Leader of a cult that wants my head,
I didn't ask for this crown.
You mock me,
adding another crack to the glass,
It's getting harder and harder to not show my fangs.
You bite your tongue and roll your eyes,
I show you my claws and you retreat again.
Don't act so suprised, oh don't you know,
I'm a faulty grenade,
with a pin that's coming loose,
getting ready to go BOOM!
I'm stuck on top of a mountain of judgment,
I'm sick of trying to play nice,
Putting others down to regain my confidance,
I don't like it,
to little to late,
Nobody offered their hand,
To help me up,
from this well.
Now you're cracking jokes about me,
I shoot you a look that silences you,
I laugh bitterly inside,
Nobody better mess with the wicked witch of depression.
Cracking, cracking,

12 Petals

The delicate pink rose in my hand has 12 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
A thorn pricks my finger and blood starts to well up. 11 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
A scarlet drop falls to the ground without a sound. 10 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
A single eyelash falls softly to my cheek. 9 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
It is gently blown away by the wind. 8 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
The sunlight sparkles on the glass. 7 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me not
It casts shadows and rainbows equally matched. 6 petals spiraling inwards
He loves me
Flickering like a candle flame.

Cotton candy clouds

Earlier this evening,
I saw cotton candy clouds drift by,
Making their way across a taffy sky,
Twisting and swirling like lollipops,
Practically bouncing off the rooftops.

And as I gazed upward,
I could feel the grass at my feet,
A lovely shade of peppermint green,
And the marshmallow smoke puffing out of a candy cane chimney
Along with the rock candy bushes –
All of us gazing upward 
At the cotton candy clouds in the taffy sky.

The sweet side of 1:45

Do you ever get the feeling,
That 1:45 might've been waiting for you?
In the stillness of the night
Its a beautiful thing,
Knowing that you're the last living thing awake in your house
Music blasting,
That this was waiting for you
Minutes passing like caramel,
So sweet,
But it's a funny thinh,
As you want time to freeze
You don't want to have to go to sleep
The darkness is calling
You just want to slip into it
have it envelope you
Like a hug from someone you love
The stars billowing out from around you,
The world at your fingertips...
Then you blink
And wake up to the relentless beep of the alarm
Telling you that the magic you felt
Is long gone

Favorite color

My favorite color
Is Purple
As a lilac
As deep as an ocean
With smatterings of black
As full as the universe
As fear inducing as nightmares
And swirls of red 
Bright as the sun
All consuming as Murderous intent
I call it happy rage
It allows you to smile
But it also alows you to boil
It cultivates your emotions
It manipulates them
Its hypnotizing
It gives you a pretty smile
With sharp teeth
And shining eyes
With hidden knives

Side by side with me
On a blanket beneath the stars
No moon around so they glow brighter than before
I miss our midnight chats
Our lively banter
Our minds connected 
But separated
By this small black rectangle
And miles
And feet
And meters
And people 
But when the clock strikes Twelve,
When Cinderella hurrys back to her carriage,
We come out to our keyboards,
Anticipating the fun that always follows,
We aren't good 
We aren't bad 
We be
Living under the stars
The night may be dark
And monsters might be roaming
But we don't need light
The monsters leave us alone
We don't need halos to be holy
We just need to be laying side by side on a blanket looking up at the stars

Girl On Fire: A Hunger Games inspired song

I am the Girl on Fire,
Trust me I can feel the flames.
They call me the Mockingjay,
I won the Hunger Games.

With every cell of my being,
I try to forget,
the faces of the tributes,
now lying dead.

I have a list of names,
constantly running through my head.
Of all the people,
Thanks to me forever dead.

I am the Girl on Fire,
Trust me I can feel the flames.
They call me the Mockingjay,
I can't escape the Hunger Games.

I saw my sister go up in flames,
Old man from 11, they blew out his brains,
Will I forever have a list of names,
Of all the people I've condemned?

To everybody it seems,
I am just a piece,
A part of a game,
Can't rid myself of this legacy.

I am the Girl on Fire,
My name is Katniss Everdeen,
Only Gale calls me Catnip,
But we're no longer friends it seems.

April Snow

The snowflakes land on my eyelashes,
And crown my hair
Coating the trees and plants with a white armor,
The beauty of the world is really showing,
But its April,
So why is it snowing!?

Where Is My Ice?

Where is my ice?
I knew there was a lump of it,
Right here!
Just a few years ago.
Where is my ice?
Why are there more orcas around?
Where is my snow?
It was here just a week ago.
I saw it!
I swear!
So how come it's no longer there?
Where is my ice?
