    This is totally me! All the worlds a stage

    and I have the lead. Maybe if I trust enough you'll know about my emotions but I would rather make others laugh so they won't look too deeply into my heart to see what it's really like. If you've ever seen me cry or I've even admitted that I cried then you're doing better than...

    Tears of a Clown

    To see me, most people would think my life was great, I'm always dorking out on something, I smile a lot and I laugh a lot.  Inside though there are storms raging.  Only a very select few people know what's really going on behind the smile.  I don't have much and I...

    Question...

    "What's the biggest lie you've ever told?" I smile don't I? That't my lie. I laugh don't I? That is my lie. I dance don't I? That's my lie. I play don't I? That is my lie. I said "i'm fine" didn't I? That's my lie. But above all I told you I don't feel, and that was a lie.

    Silly.

    There is something about making others laugh and smile that makes you forget for just a moment that you are unhappy, or that something is wrong. For a moment it takes the weight off of your shoulders, and of you make someone else smile often enough, it is almost impossible to...

    I'm never the one to show sadness to anyone

    because I feel like it would be a burden to others. So I always make jokes and laugh to cover up when I'm feeling sad. I find it easier to cover sadness with a smile....I always fool them. Though, I wish that there would be at least one person who could see the pain I'm hiding.

    Reed In The Wind

    Sometimes you billow wither the wind may blow. Sometimes you snap in half. I feel lost, sad and alone. I put on a brave face for everyone. In real life, I'm the "go-to woman," the one with all the answers. I don't have all the answers. I don't even have the answers for my...

    When Ity's Not The Crying Sad.

    It takes a lot to make me cry, and when I do I cover it up with anger, but when I am sad and not crying I usually act goofy just so people don't know. I don't like people know when I'm sad. They try copmforting me, and giving me advice. It kinda makes me mad because I know...

    Restaurant

    I once was in a restaurant - this was in the 80's, and I was pretty young. I was on holiday with my mother, but I ate alone this day. The waiter was completely ignoring me - he was totally focused on all the attractive girls in the restaurant... I wasn't able to handle the...

    I Think I'm More Goofy When I'm Nervous
