    This won't do. I'm trying to fix me,

    but I'm in a cage. I want to be free, but my tethers hold firm. What happened to ME? How did I get so lost? Is this happiness I have found even real? Sustainable? Am I looking outside when I should be searching inside? I don't need saving, but I do need to feel like I'm ok. I...

    I'm never gonna fall

    for a girl who flirts with a lot of guys again. It will get you no where but make you feel like your out of place. I'm leaving my options open for long as I can until I know I'm worthy of their time.
