    for yourself then why would I tell you?

    Little Words and A Little Bit elusive ….

    spare me the secrets or non-spoken truths that exists in the ether of your world. I am not as fragile as you think, nor am I naΓ―ve. This smile is not always in love but instead in the knowing of this game. Do you think it's not cute for me to see you work so very...

    I Just Play Like I'M Dumb, But Yet Have Gained Lots Of Wisdom Over The Years!

    I was in a bad relationship, it involved lying, drugs , cheating, I was controlled , and emotionally and mentally abused! So I take a lot of the things I have learned and I use them to detect and decode what others maybe doing or what their intentions are. So I may pretend as if...

    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    I Play Aloof On TV

    I like to act stupid or like I'm not listening because people tend to put their guards down and show their true colors. I remember everything down to the detail. I never use this filing system during an argument however. You can't let the enemy know you....of his you know. Plus...

    I'm very observant by nature.

    I notice things most people overlook. So many people don't notice others when they need help. Or they do, but chose to ignore them and stick with their click( no pun intended).It's a sad commentary but it's true. Selfishness is in the rise, selflessness is fading. Where do you...

    The rumors at school have all started up again

    and seem to be getting worse... I pretend not to notice by either listening to music and reading a book but I still hear them all and hide the pain that some people would believe them. Over the years my face has become like a mask and my true feelings are hidden from the world...

    Caution !

    I'm sure it's better not to hit someone in front in a conversation or in life. If someone criticizes me, I think first looking at myself in a mirror, just to see if I'm wrong or not. If the person was wrong to criticize me, I prefer silence, the polemic is always destructive. But...

    In my group of 5 or 6 friends I am able to hear and remember every little detail they say & more so because I like one of them. So not too long ago (the one I like) one of my friends and I are talking alone and she begins to tell me one of her childhood stories. As she goes along...

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.

    I Like To Listen

    I'm a very shy person, so when ever I'm around a group of people, whether I know them or not, I like to just sit there and listen to their conversation.

    The Quiet Ones, Are Always The Most Dangerous

    I'm a very quiet, introverted person. Don't get me wrong, I'm friendly and will talk to people, but I mostly just stand in the corner and watch. People sometimes underestimate me; they think that if I don't talk, I don't pay attention. How wrong they are. It's amazing how much...

    I still love and care about all my old friends. If I see them at parties or get togethers I usually don't say much just a wave or a smile, maybe I'll throw a, "hey" somewhere in there. They don't understand that I'm happy just being around them and knowing they're okay. They...
