hanging by a thread

January 22, 2009

I really don’t know who I am
in a big struggle either to be
me or who someone wants me to be
I hid my true feelings on the inside
don’t put my heart on the line
so I don’t get hurt
but you see
this plan rarely works
I get so entangled in my lies
even I start to believe them
the real me fades
and fake me takes over
thus leading me closer to the edge
this game of pretend kills me on the inside
the pain gets hard to hide
Eventually it shows
And my flaw is revealed
that even me, Lauren C, cant hold it all together
