Contents Poetry, creative writing, acrylic paintings. Artist RedWillow Why Red Balloon Melodies? Mostly just reminiscent of my first blog in '07 New content? Possibly! I've recently re-found some old (2007) blogs I had when I was a teenager, on which I put a lot of my art and poetry. I was pretty much of the "emo" phase I suppose, but it was a rough period for me. I suffered from depression, self-mutilation, isolation, and emotional abuse. Read at your own risks, I suppose ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The first part will feature my old stuff. Almost all of my poetry will be translated from French to English - it might sound a bit off, but I'll be putting the original there for those who are interested. Also, I write free-form poetry that usually don't even rhyme. Honestly? I kinda hate forced-rhyming poetry. Some drawings / paintings will have terrible quality as they were taking in 2007-2008 without a camera phone or a scanner, but a good ole digital camera.
