    Tell Me More Lies By Me.

    I'd love to let you in, to help you in time of need. But it's becoming a trend, you always come to me. You beg and hope that I, will give in because I love you. But instead I watch you cry, as I smile above you. A cut is just a cut, and bruises don't bruise. So tell me more...

    The lesson I learned in childhood left scars

    that will always be there. I was never accepted as a child and was an outcast for children to tease. I had epileptic seizures from an accident. Now I have trouble with trust, acceptance and getting close. That means you shouldn't tease unless you walk in there shoes.

    Im TERRIFIED of being in a relationship. I'm scared that I will be played. I'm scared that I'll never be good enough, or pretty enough. When did this happen to me? I used to be confident in myself, my appearance, my attitude. There was nothing anyone could compliment me on that...

    I'm scared to fall in love again knowing

    that a guy (especially) is usually different before//after he gets the girl. I really wish for something consistent, and a long-lasting love. And I hate if I wasn't able to become his topmost priority, or being underappreciated like I always get.
