“Writing is a form of personal freedom. It frees us from the mass identity we see in the making all around us. In the end, writers will write not to be outlaw heroes of some underculture but mainly to save themselves, to survive as individuals.”

You lied.
You hurt me.
When those lies broke apart,
so did I.

You told me you cared
But you probably told her the same.
You told me you wanted to be with me
So why are you with her?

You aren't worth my tears
So none will be spilled
I will be in pain
But at least you won't know.

Now you're lying to her
But she won't know
Until it's too late
She'll have already fallen

Someday I hope these lies
Will ruin your life
You deserve it
For what you did to me

There are all kinds of players in this world. The worst are the kind that lie, cheat, and hurt you. This is about when I was hurt by one.
