Favorite Quote:
“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”
― Bob Marley

Looking at me will get you no where
because looks can be deceiving
Even though sometimes it seems
that seeing is believing

Lies are hidden everywhere
behind doors, and signs in places
Lies are placed in unseemly spots
on the masks of human faces

A certain type of lie is mine
I use it every day
I smile even though I'm crying inside
and pretend that I'm okay

In reality I'm broken
into a million pieces on the floor
Every day I question myself
can I do this anymore?

Lately Ive been giving in
to my usual temptation
To let people see how I really feel
and I'm loving the sensation

I'm lonely, and depressed
and I cant go on much longer
I need somebody to hold me close
So I can get a little stronger...
