    False Impressions

    I'm that quiet girl in the class, who everyone is suspicious about. "Who is she?" People whisper. They THINK I'm a push-over, they KNOW I won't do anything to cause harm or trouble. Do they really know who I am? How can they make such conclusions, when I haven't even spoken a...

    Could It Be That I'm Just Two-faced ?

    I’m so broken. It has become so obvious. I’m emotionally destroyed and there's nothing to do except watch me slowly fall apart. Each day it gets worse nothing ever gets better. I’m so alone in this world that it's starting to get at me. I never have to remind myself that it...

    People look at me and think they have me all

    figured out but nobody knows the real me. I let you see what you want to see in me. People think I'm so tough and that I never cry but little do they know I'm weak and every single night I cry myself to sleep. I just want to be loved in the way I give love. I'm so lonely and I...

    No One Knows Me

    Sometimes I look in the mirror and wonder if I even know myself. Some people are clueless; they think they can see into your soul upon first glance. Everyone thinks I'm a calm, caring, kind, intelligent person. I guess you could say that I am, but they don't know what goes on in...

    Years ago, as a teenager,

    I chased my dreams. I was a dancer, had been all my life ever since I was a little kid. Dancing was all I wanted to do and couldn't see myself doing anything else. And I got the chance to fulfill those dreams just before my 16th birthday when I won a scholarship to travel to...

    They call me sweet, pretty,

    nice, drama-free, princess, the girl with the perfect life. I stare down at my cut up wrists and stomach. I look at my skin disease that makes me lose my hair. I look in the mirror and see a thing who needs help but refuses to take any. I'm not who they think I am.

    I have such urges that fight me within. Hiding inside, patiently waiting, for his chance to come alive. I feel like a demon has entered. I talk happy, feel happy, act happy but when he talks I shut up, then listen, and end up lying and impatiently frustrated. The monsters inside...

    and when people meet me they think I'm this sweet innocent girl. Little do they know I'm a sex freak and I like to do kinky things with boys and girls. They just see a nice smart girl in nursing school but they don't know what I do at night. I'm going to hell for sure

    partners I've had they'd all die. They don't know about my tats just yet and I have 2. I hid things to keep from getting judged by them. And if they knew I still talked to one of my ex's that they all hate, they'd kill me. I don't care. I"m me and that's all I'll ever be.
