You say it's wretched
You say it's grotesque
You say it's unbearable
But I know you life is nothing,
Nothing like that

You say you'll endure it
That it's a scar you'll live with
You say I know nothing
But I can read in between the lines.

You say you've been abused
But you lie in vain
The trust I gave you slaps me in the face
I know your life is nothing,
Nothing like that

You say I don't understand
But that's the problem

I do

This is great. Your best piece. I can definitely feel your emotion behind it. It's fascinating really. I loved it. I think I've read it three or four times now... Great job.

Nice.  I really like it...it's a bit vague but that's what gives it mystery. I love it...

Hmm... I'm not? And yet, if you'd have met me on the streets... you wouldn't be able to tell me apart from the person next to me.

Well...you're not just some other face. And, I'm glad it's only temporary.

Could be better. But what is my life in this world of so many others to be of upmost importance? It's only temporary.

It's fine, I was talking about you and another person too. How are you doing right now?

As have I. It seems we understand each other, author to author. That is, if you were talking about me. Forgive my misunderstanding if you were referring to someone else.

I dont know if it's a saviour, but I've found someone to talk to...that actually understands...so...it's not as bad as it could be.

And you are that soul, aren't you? That poor, lost little mind... Forever doomed to go on without somebody? Or have you found a saviour? Someone to help?

Forever disputing against themselves, confused and tortured about whom exactly they should be.

Ah, after our talks, I do not blame you for hesitation. Everyone has their masks. But I chose to remove mine. It's still there, for those who need it. But why should I lie? Who should not like to be themselves?

Yes, it was inspired by frustration. We do have a lot in common, or at least it seems that way.

Hmmm, maybe we are one mind, you and I. We seem to have a lot in common, don't you think? I know how these words spill onto paper, more than just letters in arrangement. Emotions, thoughts, stress. Anger. This was most certainly inspired by frustration? Please forgive me if I fail to anwer correctly.
