Favorite Quote:
carpe diem

my world is young, why make life wait
made mistakes but for regrets its too late
they say "be real", they say "be you"
yet they criticize everything you do
people don't see my motivations
they don't clearly perceive my intentions
i become induced, mistakenly seduced
i've found pleasure in my discretions
hope i haven't made the wrong impressions
even with whom my secrets i share
it is a mask that i wear
revealing myself in each memento
attaching myself in a way that i cannot let go
will you see past the act i put on
i say your game's not over and won
i find myself yet entangled in your ways
wreckless thoughts consuming my days
in my endless nights i find relief
to forgive and forget i strictly believe
i lose myself in the dust
infactuated; in love with lust
meet and greet my truth, its pretty nice
"truth is beautiful, without doubt, but so are lies"
