Favorite Quote:
"I love you: To feel is better than to hear"

Clawing and yelling at the top of her lungs inside my head
But I must put up a wall
I must block her out
No one wants to come off as two faced
There was a piercing emotion that just rushed through my body
Something called fear
Fear of one day she will break free and be unaccepted in this cruel world
We put up an act for society
"I am who I am. I will do whatever I want."
But, do you really?
The clocks just -tick- -tock- -tick- -tock-
as you sit and wonder,
who have I become?
I cannot be true to myself
she screamed
but I never listen
My hands begin to shake
I fall back onto the bed and stare at the ceiling
Who am I?
Am I just an illusion to the world?
I'm trapped
In my own mind
With nothing to lose but myself

I was inspired to write this when I myself experienced something similar to what I wrote about. I feel as if this is something anyone can relate to. Enjoy:]
