Don't have a favorite color, I pretty much enjoy most if not all colors the same, please enjoy!
(Had to section it out a little differently then I planned, due to this back ground being too perfect to pass.)

#color -rTS

These Transparencies,
See through.

Seeking the kaleidoscope viewer over the soul, searching through.
Find strikes of pain,
Seeping colors of mercy, bleeding a graceful rage, covering canvas page by page in the most intimate of ways.

I find beauty in collision, passion in the midst of the troubling waves of the blue hues, persistence deeper than loves eyes, Of soft blue secrecies of insecure securities.

Between my palms of refuge,I harbor holes of fresh wounded pink, whic...

Satchel full of paint cans, bags neath my eyes

A different life - rTS

I keep a distance from the lane that most people drive

I'm a separation, a divide, a walking stranger in a land of many oddities, I stay ready with the adrenaline and secrets I've kept

I know plenty of secrets and heard many things wandering by, still I refrain from entertaining the thoughts of many

Screening my View of clarity, not that it's the right way, or best

Still I don't pretend, I fear nothing in my path, for my feet are kept

Woken by the thoughts of His presence
I fear not walking in solitude

Time is what I fear, I have not the right idea of

So I ask for the wisdom
And persist in the favor

When it's d...

#tilldoomsday

I'm late by one day.. And literally just realized it's Friday.. Oh well.

" I will never deny the name of my savior"

Because He's opened My eyes, while opening His arms relentlessly. No matter what I do, I will forever be worthy of His Fathers love, my Fathers love, because He died for my sins.
Unworthy, now worth it. Praise up to the one and only God.

Be woke. (Restless slumber) -rTS

I believe in good before evil,
but I'm aware of the depths of the darkness,
so when I say I know there is hearts out there with passion living in the dark crypts,
passing the spirit of man, to puffs passed,

bottles surround the floors just like the surround sound,
parties are popping off,

another distraction is coming up,

And I'm here to remind you...

your missing your time to,
come up..

come down from them smoke trees,
Your pissing in the hand from them smoke trees..

Your head is leaning like a clown in them...

So it could be a story, short long, poem, short, long, however you prefer portraying the moment, either of a real moment or a fiction, I want to see wether dark or light prevails in the minds of our community, will we tell tales of darkness which exceeds the light of good, or a tale of righteous choices, accomplishments, however small or big.

Hey there lettrs community
I've noticed a pattern.. Amongst the time I've been using this app.. And that pattern is every time I post a lettr, more so actual content, rather then just a complaint or rant, I will get any where from 1 to 8 likes or hearts, and near a thousand fridge views lol.. I guess what I'm trying to say is.. If your gonna view it.. At least critique my writing, be harsh be humble, idc.. It's better then viewing my work and pissing off and leaving me wondering how I could of done it better, or even just telling me what your favorite line or part was, I do this for anyone I view.. I tell them if I liked the mood, the flow, which line, or what could be.. Ok not so much the "...

Baffled - rTS (a free hand)

Words so painful.. You can hardly breath, being you is not harder then me.. Tender little words that hurt with no sting.. Burn wounds like the sun bent down and kissed me..

Hardly ever is it harder to pretend I'm fine, solely divided by the undertone depressed vibes, cursed with paradise
Wizards of the unknown, snakes of halos,
light like darkness,
it burns just like it should..
Seems like it sounds good, blink once and your baffled and fooled, folly of the fragrance, together with the emptiness, hopefully fulfilled words, emptier then the paint cans of mayhem makers,
Startled by the glowing eyes growls disguised pretty lights in the bushes creep me with th...

Toss me a couple dimes I'll entertain you for the most part, dirty bum slave with no respect, self respect or time nor mirror to reflect.. Time is money and I'm dying for it...

Coloring outside the lines -rTS

It's my name that is a inconvenience  ..
To speak it is just a waste,
So keep my fucking grey name from your lips, I'll be happiest pursuing my own day dreams, if I lived by the ocean I'd contemplate suicide daily...
Staring out into its depth and stretch as my arms can't hold it, hell..
I can't swim, maybe that's why I hate the sea, whatever it may be, I still find some sort of peace searching out into the deep blue scene, with sea blue jeans inspired by lee, while I listen with my earbuds in like a pretentious teen,
to the old school blues tunes, making new songs in my head that would be labeled "indie" what ever the fuck that means, I just can't stand "t...

Personal -rTS

Head between the rocks, and the mountains keep me coped, danger in the thrills gotta stay up .. Don't get tangled in the ropes, 3 more rounds so keep me persistent.. My feet are firm but my body is weakened, need s brighter view so I can arrive,,tell me where to move, through this roller coaster to survive.. Ocean all around surrounded by the inevitable, yet in standing above the tide with the intense emotion.. "What's next" is in my breath loaded in my breath, but I keep hearing stay strapped with through in the best.. Be prepared before the sinking.. Stay up .. Don't fall with the sway..  Thoughts are only fleeting.

Imaginary- rTS

They all have faces.. Telling me how they want to be human... The ceiling the fire place, the wood bark... They preaching how they will one day become faced with.. The same day to day we live to face.. They're tired of being unspoken.. The floor spaces to the floor boards, the door knobs to the wooden doors.. The mirrors are the worst.. They plot to take over the reflections they see, persuasion  they teach..  they eat.. Off your thoughts and insecurities and memories.. Playing back the good the bad and wished away forgotten things, they love to speak... All these faceless things.. If you look hard enough you'll see.. They're not breathing .. There is no energy or brain sendin...

Time ..
It's a currency, and lately I've been spending mine counting all my worries.. Age, how I've been wasting it on useless shit...
I want to get back into school rather then spending my time on minimum pay day jobs that only pay the bills barely..
Saving for a car lately.. Well it's always been lately.. Wondering when I can stop the chase see.. I think I got a lot of potential .. Not to think counter humbly,
just saying I could do better with my own shit.. Chasing the paper wishing it would chase me, only exist as a day dream..

People who write like this: #dontBeVague

"She was tender.
Her touch. " .. The fuck is this?? Well that's all they wrote.. Super compelling.. I almost damn near cried. The devil was in them details.

Anyways..

I feel they're afraid to express they're whole thoughts and opinion in written form.. That is most scary.. Because you can't even find comfort to be yourself with no one around.

(I don't know if that is a style of writing, it's just something that pisses me off.. I don't know if they're trying to be deep? Or shallow by pretending to mean anything by a few words.)

Pen to paper.. Unfolding the journey, which never begun, this is the story of a chemists in his mystery, and loneliness ...

Rodger hates, 37 year old scientist and chemist.. I've been living in Iceland for around 9 years now.. After I finished my studies at university, I just couldn't wait any longer to start my own research facility, all this was practically given to me.. All I have to do is "this" ..what I was meant to do here.. For as long as it takes..

I'm still unsure if I love or loathe these times... I'm surrounded by walls and books and nothing else..
I guess there is a reason I'm all alone here.. Because you'd have to be some type of mad, to live like this for how ever long.

Too be stabbed in the chest with a already bloody knife..
You contemplated leaving us .. You thought hard, and figured you couldn't fucking quit being a bitch.. so you left.. I remember my latest thoughts of you, staring out the back door looking up at the sky, searching for passing by planes...
You left.. And knew you couldn't come back again...
Either way.. You didn't even call.. 17 years and not one fucking happy birthday,merry Christmas .. Not one fucking present.. But really all I wanted was your presence and your warm embrace..

Blood poem- rTS

I learned to work even when I'm exhausted..
And I blame it all on the dangle of a dollar.. Like bait on a hook
I'm on the line... Pull my body up to the tide..
Fuckin sick of this bullshit .. And if you have any questions? I'll answer I'm fine.
It's fine..
Throw me out like a used bag from the groceries..
I'm sick and done with the old me... Yeah..
I fire my flesh.. Arsonist
Artistic finesse, painting the flames and burning of flesh..
I don't know why my mind is set,
on self harm ..waiting in a waiting room.. with no sense of pleasure for ringing the alarm..
I burn the rope I'm hanging from.. Just to torture myself some more... I gotta murder this flesh yeah.. Murder me..

I don't want to be put down...
From an early age I was grown bold treated as a man, rather then sipping juice from my sippy cup
They burden me with an ammunition clip at the bottom of my sippy cup.. Treated as a boy with no childhood
I'm a man in there eyes..
Fucked up.. We gotta fight to survive..
Smoke and drink
High and faded..
Fuck the new world and fuck the hatred..
Cause I'm just a statistic and a news story added to your Facebook feed..
Shoving sympathy down the throat of a lost family.. Cause it was such a tragedy.. But no one..
Would have done shit to change the carefully fucked up situation I was placed in.. Born and raised in.. The future looked clos...

  Ohh so quick.-rTS

Oh so quickly.. Oh so quick..
That boy is blowing in the winding city..
While walking the tight wire, high as the sky scrapers He's walking a tight and narrow one...
Oh so quickly oh so quick that boy could plummet to his crooked victory...
Oh so wired.. With wit and vigor that boy looks strange but with just thoughts set deep in his eyes of brown onyx .. He finds new meaning in the conversation of small talk.. And resistance in the shadow of his thought.

Well It's just "past you" reminding you that it's all bullshit and you indulge in it too much, go do something that you care about and that will be great.. Go do, make, create, just go, no more day dreaming or wondering when shit will happen when you aren't making it happen for "you".

Every picture she's ever been in shows she's depressing the photographer, since the filter was sepia and black and grey, this chick isn't about the bullshit...
Yet her words are lines of lies, with empty joy bursting forth from inside... Sarcastic pessimistic pleas...
She vomits up razor blades and rainbow covered thunder clouds, her eyelids say "help" on the left and "Fuck" on the other, she can't be bothered with what's fucking most important from this life...

I've got
Nothing but messed up shit to state...
A gathering of mental shit in weight
Held behind my teeth, formed in my brain, it's mental rape..
Compiled in thoughts and loaded in my glock.. Shot from
A tongue dipped in brass..
Blow tunes from holes which oxygen shall pass.. Blow dicks like a bitch sucking with only gums
Tunnels of echoing language, loud, demanding noises, silence is seperated by rooms notes and tunes
To who the silence belongs too nobody knew, from the fiddlers pit of conscious fruit
A gentle word and heart to portray and entrust in you...
Never to say fuck you.. Like I always do. So fuck you, and thanks for listening to obscene shit,
Obscurity sure...

Atone - rTS

It's 2 am, and I'm so close to the cul de sac colonies
And lies scent the air
Like a plague scents the graves of those without a blood red door post...
these remains lay deep between here and there
Choking on air like poison and hell like fire ..
There's no rest..
In this darkened place
I've been placed
In a purgatory a sleep without dreams
A seamless rag
With no one and where nowhere is located
Only I and I alone is lead to believe  
In this place.

Unforgotten apathy..
My knees were unused as my prayers,
I let faith wither where my family planted the seeds and every imaginations besides yours resides here..
And I have fell deeply and madly in love with these illusions ...

Back then everything felt wrong,
no matter if we were right...
I didn't even understand what wrong was.. I just knew.

Back then I was told what to do...
Like religion.. Felt right, like abstinence fell right through my fingers and now I'm groping my sins like there's no meaning to danger...
Fuck it...
If only I knew that drugs felt the same way as lying, and lying felt like sex, and sex felt like being intoxicated..
I'd probably save my breath and my time...
Fuck it...
