My name is Luna Lemon (Or at least my pseudonym is). My favorite book series is Harry Potter (particularly The Deathly Hallows). I also love the Lunar Chronicles, Hunger Games, and Percy Jackson. I love writing poems, novels, short stories and more!

Red white and blue were once so dull
Worn down from unfairness and ignorance
That once put chains on pure wrists
When the only true chains were latched on to freedom
Freedom that was truly never there
Until years of protests changed people’s minds
That showed some were luckier than others
But the luck could be changed
Now the colours are not so dull
Though some days are duller than others
A new line of opportunity is shined upon all ...

Wonder

FREE WRITING

I’ve always wondered why oh why
There are clouds in the sky
Why oh why I always say
Does the sun have to go away
Or why do days simply go by
Without a single bit of goodbye
I always say, think and wonder
Oh what else can I ponder?

Memory

FREE WRITING

Your voice was like silk running through calloused fingers
Enchanting me until my tears stopped
It would make my eyes heavy, leaving a smile etched on my face
As sweet dreams galloped through my head
I would beg you to sing it when my heart only wanted you
From a long day apart where I kept searching for your voice
I would hum it to myself when times were rough
But nothing came close to your tune
Although now it’s...

You do a great job of creating imagery and having funny and great rhymes! Keep up the great work Featherwings! I remember hearing this in Mr. Dole's class and I was wondering why it sounded so familiar. This is one...

Wrath

FREE WRITING

I can not help but feel that my heart beats faster than the rest
That when a voice speaks too loud, my body screams in agony sometimes escaping my mouth
When one piece of a puzzle is gone, my vision becomes red and my skin turns hot
When a baby cries for only help, I can’t help but cry myself
My body thrashes without thought
My mind screams when all is calm
My heart runs when I’m still
My fingers...

Red white and blue were once so dull
Worn down from unfairness and ignorance
That once put chains on pure wrists
When the only true chains were latched on to freedom
Freedom that was truly never there
Until years of protests changed people’s minds
That showed some were luckier than others
But the luck could be changed
Now the colours are not so dull
Though some days are duller than others
A new line of opportunity is shined upon all
Though it took too long for the burden to be uplifted
Freedom finally has a small piece in our name
America… Land of the free

Wonder

I’ve always wondered why oh why

Why oh why I always say
Does the sun have to go away
Or why do days simply go by

Memory

Your voice was like silk running through calloused fingers
Enchanting me until my tears stopped
It would make my eyes heavy, leaving a smile etched on my face
As sweet dreams galloped through my head
I would beg you to sing it when my heart only wanted you
From a long day apart where I kept searching for your voice
I would hum it to myself when times were rough
But nothing came close to your tune
Although now it’s hardly ever sung
The memories of your voice warm my heart
And sometimes in my dreams, I still hear it
Soothing me to sleep, like I’m a baby in your arms again

Wrath

I can not help but feel that my heart beats faster than the rest
That when a voice speaks too loud, my body screams in agony sometimes escaping my mouth
When one piece of a puzzle is gone, my vision becomes red and my skin turns hot
When a baby cries for only help, I can’t help but cry myself
My body thrashes without thought
My mind screams when all is calm
My heart runs when I’m still
My fingers twitch when my eyes are closed
My mind burns with thoughts I can’t control
Pain pulls at me, clouding my judgment
Forcing me into a never ending rage
That twists my thoughts every day
They tell me to take deep breaths
But the more I try, the faster they get
I’ll I can do, is suffer
In a place, I will never escape

Dance

A simple box step seems like such a frivolous thing
One step after another in the shape of a square
But as I step on the dance floor my heart stops
In front of the mirror, I was a professional
Dancing smoothly like a swan with steady ripples gently chasing
But as my gloves wetten and stick to my fingers
My legs forget how to move
I let my hand be taken by a stranger
As he takes me strikingly in the middle where my legs break beneath me
He holds me up and gives me a white smile
Holding me tight so I won’t fall
As the music starts I mimic his feet, slowly remembering the steps
Soon I’m the swan in front of the mirror my fear nowhere to be seen

Tree

A simple red X
Pink and blue ribbons
Paint splattered against each chosen mark
Tall and healthy
Not ready for the end
Yet here is the X, the ribbons, the paint
These marks show an end to a thousand-year-old civilization
So others can witness the start of a new city to go with the thousands of other civilizations that fell to metal, trucks, and humans
I sit in the rich soil, feel the bumps of the roots peeking out of the ground for one last time, one more breath of air
I feel the rough skin that should’ve had so many years left, only to end by the hack of an ax
I look at each ribbon, each knot tied tight, but if pulled hard enough, one life saved at a time

Write

Oh what oh what should I write
I think with all my mighty might
A chapter book with constant thrills
A horror story with creepy chills
I pound my head against my desk
Oh what oh what shall I write next
A funny poem with constant rhyme
A somber tale on the end of time
I think; I gripe; I’ve thought a ton
Oh wait I think my work is done
