Stone for a heart
Smile that holds back true intent
Personality that can clear a room
You disguise everything about you
The personality that draws the crowd
Smile that can bring joy
The fragile heart disguised as a warrior
Did I describe you?
Did I capture you perfectly?
Are you what we all see?
Something tells me it’s all a façade
A mask you wear daily
Don’t fret we all wear a disguise
You’ve just been wearing yours for far too long
I’m not mistaken; this I know
Your carefully place mask slips at times
True colors start to show
Real human emotions come to life
Laughter becomes less robotic
Sounding like a bird’s lullaby
One day you’ll learn
It’s okay to let go
You’ve worn this mask for far too long
I live for the fantasy that it would be me
That you would be better for me
Yet, as time goes by the truth settles in
Every syllable that vibrated out of those lips
Where to string me along, made to torture me
Time passes me by as it normally does
The realization that i meant nothing
Just a person to fill a gap in time
Just an object to manipulate
The change I wanted to see from you
I would not be the one to inspire it
Who knows if anyone will.
I lived for that fantasy once
Yet, now it’s a nightmare I can not surpass
I am everywhere and no where
The breaths I take are counted
One. Two. Three.release
I live on edge all the time
The place for relaxation is inexistent
Not tangible never was never will be
I am everything but most days
There’s nothing left of me
One. Two. Three. . .Release
Those shoes you wear
Yes, the ones you’re wearing now
I’ve worn them too
They feel comfortable don’t they?
You are having the best time, right now.
Shh let me tell you a secret, it doesn’t last
The heels on those red pumps
Will tear after every use
Before long they’ll break into two
Trust me because I’ve worn them too
It’s okay to change even if others do not understand as to why. Only you know the struggle in your mind and soul. The first step to strength is to admit weakness and to attack it. We are always stronger than what we assume we are.
Love is a fatal attraction
You lose yourself in it’s whirlpool
You start to disappear slowly
Salt water stings your eyes and blinds you
The sounds of the waves crashing
Hinders you from hearing the truth
The truth is that he lies
It’s all been an act this persona
An act to hide the scared boy he really is
Love is a fatal attraction
I do not attend to be it’s next attraction
Accepting that I cannot change the passed is more tiresome then one may think. It takes you to a place where nothing matters. A place where you only have energy for one thing in life. In this world of self pity nothing and no one matters. All you can think of is the one thing that hindered you in such a way.
In a place full of smiles
There is so much envy
Smiles that hide the knife in their hand
They are patient
Waiting for the right moment to pounce
Survival is a great defeat
Who will win?
You or me?
