Leather Notebook

My name is Scarlette (formerly Courtney) and this is mostly made up of my scribblings, some of that are very personal, because I've led a pretty crazy life and want other people reading to take comfort in that they are not alone. I also want people to feel free to message me with their problems. Please remember that you're not alone and there's people out there that would love to listen to your story, and would listen to the entire thing. Thank you for reading, have a fantastic day, & don't be shy about saying hello.

I do my very best to write one poem in the morning and one in the evening every day at the very least, but often times I'll end up with much more.

Please read my life story HERE to better understand my writing.

Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY! 

Just needs to be stated again! 

Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”

“This sadness is lodged so deep that I’m afraid it’ll never be found. I’ve already had far too many heart surgeries by doctors, by my sisters, by my father. I was shot long ago with a bullet of melancholy and my body has become poisoned by the lead. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to feel rested.” Depression || Scarlette La Vaillante

No one else finds this AT ALL disconcerting? Not even a little bit?

Here’s why there is no media coverage, folks: because the media literally can’t get in there.

Rest in peace, I’m sorry that you were so sad. Suicide is a terrible tragedy that affects everyone, that shakes the world to it’s core and leaves behind questions that only the sufferer could understand.  And the fact that one of the funniest people on this planet was broken behind his humor, it goes to show that you can never be sure of anyone. You can be the funniest person in the room and the saddest all at once. I hope you’ve found the peace you needed while you were here. 
Suicide is a silent epidemic. Be kind to everyone.. You never know how they are suffering. 

"You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it." 

If you are feeling suicidal, call this number: 1800 273 8255. I love you.

“Everyone tells you that you’re like snow,
and you take pride at the ice in your veins.
You’ve pushed cars over cliffs.
You’ve crushed their hearts on the rocks.
You have flowers beneath your skin
but no one takes the time to find them
because they’re so scared to die in you.
Knees to the cold, palms above the rocks,
let me kiss your flowers. Let me die in you.”
Hard To Love || Scarlette La Vaillante

Anonymous said: Have you ever liked someone a lot or even loved someone that didn't feel the same way about you? How do I deal with this? It hurts so much. They are all I think about, when I wake up, before I sleep, even when I dream. I'd never tell them of course. But it's so painful.

Of course I have. You are right, it hurts, a lot. But you have to understand that you cannot force someone or will someone to love you, just as someone cannot force you. Try to distract yourself, try to appreciate life a little more, as cliche as that sounds. It helps. And everything they are missing out in you, love it. Love yourself. Don’t try to win their affection. It’s not worth it. Falling in love is one aspect of life. It doesn’t cover even half of what it’s about.

Hi darling. I’m sorry I haven’t been writing lately. I’ve been more quiet than usual. Something will come soon.
