I'm so tired of pretending
I cant play this doll house game anymore
what's the good of living
if you have nothing to live for?
as your eyes meet mine,
I know you must see
but you dont see
Im so tired of pretending
I hate living a lie, this lie
double life
triple life
quadruple life
even more then ever before
crashing reality refuses to settle in
leaving me with less than nothing
without reality, eyes are useless
I cant really see truth at all,
no matter how hard I try.
because im so swarmed with lies.
every second of every syllable that leaves my lips
draws me farther from who I want to be
and how I want to see
I'm beating myself, and Im not winning
im so tired of pretending
I cant play this doll house game anymore
whats the good of living
if you have nothing to live for?

Every experience is individual. Nobody can experience the same exact thing as you in that same exact way.

You'll regret not taking the risk.

This poem really moved me in how it really touches on a sensitive topic that no one likes to talk about.
