I Am Difficult to Get to Know

    I think I am very difficult to know

    because I have been to so many places and done some strange things. Someone called me arrogant but I don't think I am. I don't judge other people harshly so why do they judge me before knowing me?

    My voice changes. My mood changes.

    My will to live shrinks. My rage flares. My lust blooms. All in ten minutes.

    Cracks In My Wall

    I have always built walls around myself to hide who I am, and only those willing to take chunks out of it have a chance to see what's inside. To this day, maybe one or two have gone to the effort of doing so. Then I meet someone recently, who without even trying seems to take...

    Somewhat

    Along life we experience things and go through situations which mold who we are. I try not to dwell on my past but inevitably it's left it's mark on me. Leaving me with trust issues..........and therefore I don't really allow people to get 'real' close. It's something I work on...

    I Don't Want To Be Known.

    I seem to only open up to certain kinds of people that strike me as special or different... I don't want the rest of the world knowing me, so I put on a charade. Only a few lucky people will ever get to know the real me and thats how It will stay.

    Why?

    I am someone who most often doesn't talk to others unless they talk to me. When they do talk to me I am reluctant to open up. I say very little. If someone wants to get to know me, they have to be persistent. If they persist, eventually I feel comfortable with them and I will...

    I am complicated, not because I want to be, but because of the situations I have been put in.

    I'm shy. I hate talking.

    I hate to get in front of an audience. I stand off to the side a lot. It hurts to say hello. It's painful to make a phone call. Even when I start a friendship or relationship, I keep a lot to myself. I share only tidbits and never give away the vault.

    It takes a lot for me to open up to someone.

    This kinda goes along with my trust issues too. I just dont tell people everything about me the first time we meet. The more that i get to know someone the more they know about me. Haha I guess i almost think about it as several very sturdy barriers. When you get past one i...

    Have you every truly thought about death?

    I mean you die and you're gone. Some people may believe in an afterlife or another plain of existence, but for me I can't grasp the concept of another place beyond this world. When you're gone it's over. People will mourn and lament you but as the years pass the grief fades and...

    Everybody thinks I'm good.

    I may be. They begin trusting and chatting more. It gets a bit uneasy for me. I don't know why. I act so fake because I have to. I manipulate people so well it feels unreal. Or I do a good job of hiding and pretending. In any case no one will know who I really am. I am just...

    This is only because I have

    Yeah I guess I can be hard to get to know.

    I mean if you ask me questions I will answer honestly, but I am not very easy to approach. I don't show very much emotions, and I am very hard to read, but I am nice enough so there isn't really anything to be scared of.
